Press Release: December 08, 2009
Its that time of year again and like it or not you will soon have to get those presents organised. This guide can be used by ladies who wish to buy for their friends but we suspect that its the men who will have most trouble deciding on a perfect gift for their partner, mum, sister or friend.
Our first important tip for you gentlemen - if it belongs in the kitchen, please do not buy it as a Christmas gift!
Spa day or treatment
Treat the lady in your life to a beauty treatment, or if you can afford it, an entire spa day! When asked, all the ladies in the Models Direct office agreed that there is nothing like some time out and a little pampering. If you decide to go for a beauty treatment a gift voucher may be the best option, this way your special lady can choose what she would really like to use it for bearing in mind that if you hand over an appointment card for an anti-aging facial it may well backfire on you!
Vouchers are generally a good choice if you consider where your lucky lady will want to shop. Where does she go to buy herself a treat? Which shop does she always want to pop into but doesnt because she cant afford it? Gift vouchers can be purchased from all kinds of stores, from clothing shops to jewellers, so why not make her day?
Dont be scared, jewellery isnt limited to engagement rings and does not have to be diamond encrusted and expensive. A cute pendant makes a great gift and you can choose from an incredible variety, from the more expensive type you can pick up at a jewellers to a more fun item from a high street fashion outlet like Topshop, who sell some lovely pieces at very reasonable prices.
You cant go far wrong with a luxury bathrobe. Buy something in your chosen ladys favourite colour and make sure its the best quality that you can afford. Full-length robes are the cosiest and are fab for curling up in front of the TV on long cold winter nights. For maximum brownie points wrap the robe around a bath melt or bath bomb from Lush (keep it in its wrapping or it may stain the robe). Lush products are kind to the environment and will make her robe smell delicious when she opens it.
Leather bound diary/Filofax
If youre buying for someone who likes to keep their life organised, a leather-bound diary or filofax offers a touch of quality and class. You can find these in a multitude of colours and designs from leading high-street retailers such as WHSmith.
