Feeling Brave? Clothes for your Other Half this Christmas

Buying clothes for the lady in your life can be a bit of a minefield, especially when you’re left to your own devices to choose them. It’s no wonder most guys tend to avoid the subject altogether, preferring, instead, to give them money or vouchers so that they can treat themselves to something they really like. Buying for the guys in your life, however, is a little bit easier – they tend to be a lot more relaxed and easy-going about their clothing choices, and their preferences tend to be a little more transparent so it’s easier to pick up on hints.
If you’re stuck on gifts this Christmas and would like to treat your other half to more than just a standard gift, clothes are a great way to go, if you get it right! Just make sure you keep the receipt – you know, just in case.

For the Lady in your Life
Perhaps they’ve seen some gorgeous evening dresses but can’t justify buying one because money can be spent elsewhere. Or maybe they have dropped a couple of hints about a skater dress they like the look of. Take a look at the quality evening dresses from George and pick something that she’d look fabulous in – as supermarket brands are more affordable than some high street stores, your money will go further and you’ll have some left to spend elsewhere! Opt for a size based on what’s already in her wardrobe and keep the receipt just in case it needs to be exchanged.

There’s no such thing as too many shoes and Christmas is a perfect time to add to her collection. Whether you choose a pair of killer heels from the Kurt Geiger collection to make her jaw hit the floor, or you’d prefer to stay sensible and treat her to a pair of practical, but cute, winter boots, is completely up to you. Remember to bear in mind what she would appreciate more.

Winter is cold, we all know that. If her coat has seen better days, why not treat her to a new one?

For the Guy in your Life
Not all guys wear pyjamas to bed, and some choose to wear just the bottoms rather than the full shebang. PJs are a great little stocking filler and come in so many different styles and patterns lately, including funky superhero-laden prints and ones that pay tribute to their favourite TV programmes, such as Doctor Who – why not go wild? It is Christmas, afterall!

A new pair of trainers that they’ll get plenty of use out of will always be appreciated. Opt for a style that they like – normal sports trainers, Converse and skate shoes from the likes of Vans and Etnies are popular choices for guys all over the country. Choose wisely though!

Keep your fella warm during the winter months with a super cosy hoody – fur lined and chunky will keep the bite at bay, while there are some great, trendy prints around at the moment too.

Vary their Christmas box and they’ll have plenty of surprises to open on the day that will show just how much you care!

I'm so, so fussy with perfumes, I always end up with 20 plus testers in my pocket whenever I head into Boots, and I've never found that perfect scent. White Musk Smoky Rose* from The Body Shop isn't far off though...

It smells exactly like the name, very rose-y, but not floral, and very musky, yet not powdery - I'm definitely not the best at explaining scents haha! It doesn't last very long, but I'm sure that the Perfume version lasts longer than Eau De Toilette

This has soon become one of my every day fragrances and I absolutely love it. I get so many compliments whenever I wear it! The plus? It's not that expensive so I wont feel as guilty when I'm stocking up!

If you're putting some fragrances on your Christmas list, make sure this is one of them!
