We’ve all been guilty of last-minute Christmas shopping - and not without cause. The run-up to the festive season is often packed with social plans, leaving few weekends for essential errands. Plus, it’s not only a question of finding a quiet moment to buy and wrap your holiday haul, since coming up with yet another fresh batch of Christmas gifts ideas is your first holiday hurdle.
With so many advice columns dedicated to finding the best Christmas gifts for women, it's easy to think that our mums, wives, girlfriends, sisters, female friends or colleagues are particularly hard to buy for. We’ve probably all lamented what to get for ‘The Girl That Has Everything’, but with a little inspiration, it doesn't take a Christmas miracle to find the perfect gift.
We’re getting ahead this year with our to-do list, and to help you do the same, we’ve put together this 2023 guide to Christmas gifts for her. Fortunately, there’s no need to trek to the North Pole, as you can discover everything to make a magical Christmas for friends and family here at FC.
The perfect Christmas gifts for women
1. CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR MUM
Heading home for the holidays? Then ‘Christmas presents for mum’ may be first on your to-do list. When you’re searching for gifts for mum, Christmas shopping guides can feel overwhelming by the huge variety on offer, including suggestions like flowers, chocolates, candles, spa days, and other such pampering treats, but also more practical pieces from winter clothing to home furnishings, as well as more considered finds such as fine jewellery or luxury cosmetics.
As one present you don’t want to get wrong, we’ve deferred to our FC buyers on this year’s best Christmas gift ideas for mum, and the resounding answer was a cold-weather accessory that’s sophisticated and stylish, but charmingly functional. For a gift with instant appeal, trust our Artisan Blanket Shawl crafted from intricately-patterned terracotta and teal to deliver an elevated finish.
2. CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR SISTER
Depending on your traditions, a few thoughtful stocking fillers exchanged on Christmas morning can be more than enough to get your sibling into the festive spirit. We recommend statement jewellery with a difference, like these Floral Resin Huggie Hoop Earrings, to stand out from the many years of gift-giving. But if you’re after a more lavish find, a beautiful knit like this snow-white Babysoft Pearl Sleeve Jumper will be the star of the show when it comes to unwrapping time. For more knitted Christmas gifts for her, our enviable new knitwear collection has it all.
3. CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR GIRLFRIEND
A handbag has the feel of a luxury purchase - particularly crafted from on-trend materials, silhouettes, and colours - making it the perfect gift to treat someone special. Not only will this lucky recipient feel delightfully spoiled on Christmas morning, but being as perfectly practical as it is thoughtful, this is a gift that stands the test of time. With handbags heading to oversized proportions for SS24, our Jeena X Smooth Large Tote Bag is set to become her favourite arm candy - besides you, of course.
3. CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR FRIENDS
On your search, you might seek out prezzies that speak to their interests and hobbies, be it a cocktail set for the mixologist in the group, or a weather-ready coat for the outdoors lover. Or, if your friend has an eye for interiors, explore Christmas gift ideas for her that put a quirky spin on classic homeware, like this Ambra Recycled Coupe Glass in bright and bold orange. Feel like making a splash? Complete the look with a set of matching wine glasses.
4. CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR COLLEAGUES
When buying for your co-workers this Christmas, you might be working to a strict budget, especially if you’ve gone down the Secret Santa route. Plus, depending on how close knit your team is, you may also have to navigate choosing a Christmas gift for a colleague without knowing their likes and dislikes. All in all, you’re facing a headache worse than after the office party without proper planning.
While many of us will revert to standard options like wine or novelty gadgets, it’s worth considering gifts that will bring them joy beyond Christmas Day. Our FCUK One Of Each Body Mist Gift Set encases three generous body mists in unique scents of amber and tonka, bergamot, pink pepper and rose, and eucalyptus and mint, offering lasting wear that will be appreciated into the new year. With our just-in collection of Christmas sets, you'll have no trouble finding a beauty gift they'll love.
For more Christmas gift ideas for women, whether simple stocking fillers that bring a smile to her face, or something extra special for those magical moments, head to our curated Christmas Gifts For Her collection.
