Earrings are top of the wish list for many women who often wear a variety of styles, making them an easier present for loved ones to choose. Necklaces and other jewellery are generally more prominent when worn, which increases the chance of getting it wrong.

The Tote bag has turned a corner, and now offers dedicated space for technology. Look from leather tote bags with a cushioned and padded laptop compartment in addition to a separate smaller compartment for a tablet, and another for a smartphone. If your lady likes to be connected to the internet, she will love you for this one. Practical but also very stylish, this gift will definitely put you in her good books.
Her favorite perfume
Perfume is a great choice, but only if you know her preferred brand. Perfume is such a personal gift that it could be a disaster if you wing it. Talk to her girlfriends or mum, or accompany her around the perfume department taking note of which scents or brands she tries on. Then you can go back later to buy the perfume only or let her layer a lasting scent using shower gel, body lotion and perfume. For some royal inspiration, take a look at this article from Stylist magazine.
Great for jogging or walking in cold weather, earmuff – or ‘hearmuff’ – headphones are practical and stylish. Available in sheepskin, faux fur, acrylic or a cosy knit, they can be connected to an iPod, iPhone or other MP3 player via a 3.5mm headphone jack. The headband may also be adjustable for additional comfort.
Hopefully there will be something here for the lady in your life. Tailoring your gift to her likes and personality is the best way forward if you are unsure about what she would choose herself.
