2018 Gift Ideas for Her | Christmas Gift Guide | Me Becoming Mum

When it comes to writing a gift guide for Christmas gifts for her, I always find it easier than any other because of course gifts like these are aimed at women like me! So get ready to check out a few of my favourite Christmas gift ideas for the lady in your life!

Me Becoming Mum's 2018 Christmas Gift Guide for Her

It's the most wonderful time of year!

Christmas jumper

If, like me, you are crazy about Christmas, then the perfect gift for her will always be a Christmas jumper. As well as looking fabulous and getting you into the Christmas spirit, there is nothing more Christmas-y (is that even a word?!) than styling it out in a gorgeous festive jumper. This year I’ve added an awesome Christmas jumper from Morrisons to my collection of festive clothing… it’s technically from the menswear section but I don’t care; it’s amazing!

Christmas suit

You may have seen in my Christmas Gifts for Him gift guide that John has a fantastic Christmas suit from Opposuits but you’ll be pleased to know they don’t just offer suits for men! This beautiful (new in!) Nordic Noelle Christmas suit* is all mine and in sizes 8 to 20 they’ve got an option for most shapes and sizes. I did find mine came up a bit small though, so be sure to check the measurements section to order the correct size for your leading lady.

Family: today's little moments become tomorrow's precious memories.

Family portrait print

I’m pretty sure that this would make a wonderful gift for anyone at this time of year, but I definitely list it as a top choice for Christmas gifts for her. Our family portrait poster* from Posterhaste includes members of my husband’s family, from grandparents to his sister’s family, and of course, us! You can design your own poster with ease on their website with plenty of personalisation options; from the family name to the family members themselves. The family members can include people or pets, a variety of colours, hairstyles and of course their name.

I’m off to club bed, featuring DJ Pillow and MC Blanket.

Pyjamas

Is there a better day than a pyjama day? At the weekend, with no school run to do, we love nothing better than relaxing together as a family in our pyjamas with a movie or two. If you’re looking for Christmas gifts for her you can’t go wrong with the amazing range of pyjamas from Hunkemöller. They’re comfortable, but most of all they look sexy, meaning I don’t feel like a frumpy mum in them! They have a variety of options including sets and seperates so you can choose the suitable ones for your lovely lady.

NOW TV Smart Stick*

When I was working for GAME back in the day we had loads of training about NOW TV so I’ve always been interested in the idea but whilst still paying for a Sky subscription it didn’t make sense. Now that has ended I couldn’t be happier having their awesome NOW TV smart stick in my home. There are a variety of NOW TV smart stick bundles to choose from starting at just £19.99 with two months entertainment included, meaning it’s a budget friendly Christmas gift for her this year.

Here are a few of my top reasons for loving the NOW TV smart stick as a gift for her this Christmas:

  1. You pick the passes you want from Cinema, Entertainment, HAYU, Sports and Kids.

  2. There is no contract, so you can end the subscription at the end of any of the monthly passes.

  3. Even with all of the passes it is cheaper than our Sky subscription was with less channels available!

  4. You can add apps including Netflix, All4, YouTube and so much more.

  5. It includes access to Sky channels as well as over 300 box sets.

Nothing says home like the smell of baking.

Christmas apron

If you follow me on social media you will know that I love to get my bake on. This means anything baking related is a well suited Christmas gift for her in my book! Baking essentials including bowls, spoons, trays and electric whisks are a staple in most kitchens, but baking accessories aren’t so make the perfect Christmas gift. I absolutely love my new retro grey Christmas apron* from Ragged Rose. It it comfortable, adjustable, and best of all has a children’s matching one which Squidgy has (and features in my upcoming gift guide for four year olds.

Biscuit roller

Talking about baking, what could be better than having a new accessory to give your baking a little something extra? When it comes to Christmas gifts for a lady who bakes, this Springerle and Speculaas biscuit roller* is the perfect addition to my guide. I had so much fun testing it out making cookies and gingerbread biscuits, and Squidgy loves it too! It is so easy to use, works with a variety of dough types and the final result looks fantastic every time.

Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.

Wellies

Finding the right pair of wellington boots is not an easy task for me, thanks to the shape of my calves but these awesome Joules black floral mid height wellies* from Amara hit the nail on the head. When it comes to choosing the perfect Christmas gift for her this year, useful gifts are always a good choice, and what could be better than a quality, comfy pair of wellies that look good too? I think the best thing for me about my new boots is the fact that I can now do the school run without my feet getting soaking wet when it rains!

Ageing is a fact of life. Looking your age is not.

Moisturiser

Although you can purchase this lush Tahitian Vanilla and Ginger Moisturiser* in a smaller 65ml bottle which would make a perfect stocking filler this Christmas, the 500ml bottle I have is definitely the perfect Christmas gift for her. It not only smells wonderful, but leaves my skin feeling and looking soft, smooth and rejuvenated. Best of all, this is a great Christmas gift for all the ladies because it is Paraben-Free, Gluten-Free, 100% Vegan and THC-Free!

Good, old-fashioned ways to keep hearts sweet, heads sane, hands busy.

Crafting kits

By now most people are aware that I run Mama Naii's Crochet, and taught myself to crochet while on maternity leave for Squidgy. So when I was asked if I would like to try out the new Crafter’s Companion crochet kits to include within my Christmas gift guides, there was no doubt in my mind it would be a great idea. I was sent the Cute Companions Pippa the Panda kit* and I think it turned out super cute.

The instructions use UK terminology (I’m used to the US version of stitches) but I still found it super easy to complete and think it definitely the perfect gift for her this Christmas. There are a number of kits available including a lion and a zebra!

Haynes manuals (but not for cars!)

Now obviously choosing that title doesn’t mean that the lady in your life wouldn’t appreciate a Christmas gift with a car association. It is more to point out that despite common thought, Haynes do so much more than car manuals! I love using fancy handwriting and have always wanted to learn calligraphy, so when Haynes offered to send me their Modern Calligraphy and Hand Lettering Haynes Manual* it was obviously a massive yes! I have love trying out all the different tips I have found inside, and as you can see below I have learnt a thing or two (and obviously the photo for my Christmas gift guide had to have Christmas text!)

The most luxurious item is a beautiful bed an simple sheets.

New cushions

If you have been with your partner for any length of time it is likely you will have come up against the age old argument over who is right. Well what better way to settle that argument than with Mr Right, Mrs Always Right cushions* from Find Me a Gift? Obviously we know that men think they are always right, but the truth is, more often than not, their better half is right. Happy wife, happy life and all that! So for Christmas this year, why not get the perfect gift for her (and him!) to remind everyone who the real boss is.

I hope this post has given you some fabulous Christmas gift inspiration for her. Now you just have to start shopping ready for the big day in just a few weeks time!

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas from my family and me this year!
