Christmas Gift Guide ‘For Her’ 2022!
The 2022 Christmas Gift Guide guides are looking a little different this year. Gone are our lengthy intros and posed imagery. Feedback is that readers want candid snaps of what they get from the retailer – what is in boxes and pots! The packinging and how it comes in the post. This year budgets are tighter, so we have focused on products that are under £100 and those that tick the ‘treat’ and ‘practical use’ boxes. Buy one or two gifts she will love rather than a bundle of gimmicky ones that will live in the back of a cupboard. Radical suggestion? Ask what people need or would like. Also we went with His/Her guides this year because they are the most widely searched but please interchange the guides for all genders 😊
We have made it easy to see the retailer, price, postage info etc, followed by our own review as a customer in our product descriptions. (Always check websites’ last postage before Christmas dates.)
P.s Check if websites have discounts to sign up to mailing lists before you buy – every little helps and most offer between 10-20% off on first purchase.
So, let’s jump right in and get shopping!
Evolve Organic Beauty Nightly Renew Facial Cream. RRP £32.
Perfect for – Normal to dry skin. All ages. Beauty and skincare enthusiasts. Vegan.
Launched in 2009 Evolve Beauty products are handmade in small batches in Hertfordshire, England in a studio with 100% wind power and low-energy lighting. Their products are vegan, cruelty-free and eco-friendly. The Evolve Organic Beauty Nightly Renew Facial Cream is available HERE and comes in a stylish 60ml brown glass jar and recycled card box. Designed to detoxify the skin whilst smoothing fine lines and wrinkles it contains natural ingredients such as Peony Extract and Bio Retinol from the plant Bidens Pilosa. Full ingredients are clearly listed on the site. Massage in small circles on freshly cleansed skin as part of your evening beauty routine. The cream is thick but rubs into the skin immediately with no residue. The site has a useful skin quiz and free skincare consultations. I included a moisturiser as it is a widely used product and I find even if I miss the morning routine, putting on a nice thick nightly cream to sleep in does the world of good, especially in drier colder weather.
Fragrance: (my most asked question about beauty and skincare items -what do they smell like?!) This has a light natural lavender scent.

Peugeot Paris Press Two-in-one Coffee Mill & Cafetiere. RRP £124.99.
Perfect for – coffee lovers!
Peugeot is one of the most iconic French brands with a strong tradition of exceptional quality and innovation. No, I am not including this brand for their cars…but for their ingeniously made kitchenware. With a brand ethos to manufacture products that enhance taste, it is no wonder that the products are loved and used by top chefs including Raymond Blanc and Rick Stein. As they produced their first coffee mill back in 1840 and are well known for their excellence in engineering, I wanted to feature Peugeot’s innovative Paris Press (available HERE) as the ideal gift for a coffee lover. The Paris Press combines a coffee mill with a cafetiere. Yes, you heard correctly. No more need for a noisy electric grinder, then spilling half the ground beans as you try to pour them into a cafetiere, this 2-in-1 product saves space and offers a new means of preparing and savouring freshly-ground coffee. At 15 cm it is perfectly sized to grind and brew 500ml of coffee and sit happily on your kitchen shelf. What struck me with this product is how well made and robust it is, the Paris Press mill with its unique grinding mechanism is placed directly onto the cafetiere. The grinding mechanism comes with a lifetime guarantee and adjusts automatically. Add 4 good scoops (a handy spoon comes with the mill) then with just a few turns of the handle, your coffee beans are freshly ground and transferred directly into the cafetiere. You can adjust the grind. It is a smooth process. Remove the mill, pour in the hot water, put on the cafetiere top and leave it to brew for 5 minutes then plunge. I love the modern aesthetic, chrome, black and glass (nice and thick) with a logoed plunger. It is a really high-quality item and a special gift.

Artistry Skin Nutrition™ Vitamin C + HA3 Daily Serum. RRP £53.55.
Perfect for – Beauty and skincare enthusiasts.
Artistry is a US brand of skincare and cosmetics that focus on natural ingredients and dermatology rather than chemicals. One of the top-selling products is Artistry Skin Nutrition available HERE which includes 10% Vitamin C – the highest-ever concentration in an Artistry formula. Use 4 drops morning and evening in your usual routine before your moisturiser. Each 12ml bottle is free from animal-derived ingredients, is not tested on animals and is formulated with no mineral oil, no parabens, no phthalates, no sulphate surfactants, and no cyclic silicones. The serum blends well and doesn’t leave skin tacky. It feels almost water like, unlike some gel type serums. I like the glass dropper and bottle. Note, store Vitamin C products away from direct sunlight and be careful when combining with products that have Retinol. Serum use is encouraged at any age as part of a skincare routine, from your 20’s. It comes with the box shown and plastic wrapped with a spare top which is a nice touch.
Fragrance: Delicate but beautiful, especially from the bottle. It does not perfume skin when rubbed into the face though, so doesn’t irritate.

Exclusively designed by Michelle Allen for Enesco, The Owl and Owlet Reusable Water Bottle is made of high-quality, double-walled stainless steel.

The French made game also is colourful, beautifully illustrated and has won a well-deserved Spiel des Jahres. In very simplified breakdown, the aim of the game is to score points by describing the image cards in your hand, which other players have to guess.

The Fragrant Jubilee Christmas Gift Set available HERE contains 5x75ml bottles of the most popular fragrance collections. Set contains: Fireside Bath & Shower Gel, The Greenhouse Whisky & Water, Scots Pine, and Rhubarb Rhubarb! Each little bottle creates a lot of lather! What I love about Noble Isle products is the attention to detail in the packaging, the logo embossed onto the bottle lids and the high-quality rose gold and black gift box – it gives such a luxury feel. Gift sets that include multiple collections are great as giftees will be able to try out different options and fall in love with new favourites and have options that will match a mood i.e., refreshing, relaxing etc. I like that these are suitable for both baths and showers so you can’t go wrong. A really nice touch is the cardboard shipping box internally has the NI logo inside. If you want attention to detail, you will get it with this brand.
Fragrance: Amazing, each bottle has a recognisable and powerful scent without being overwhelming. My favourite is the florals of Scots Pine. What I like is that they don’t smell synthetic and have a range of fragrance notes for different tastes, i.e., Fireside has spiced notes and Whiskey and Water Amber…and Whisky! You can read about each natural perfume they add to each of the fragrance collections on the website.

Cranes Cranberry & Blood Orange Liqueur 50cl. RRP £19.00.

The Cranes company was started by identical twin brothers Ben and Dan Ritsema and the 100% natural ingredient filled drinks are handcrafted in Cambridge where they are also bottled and dispatched in 100% natural packaging. The Cranes Cranberry & Blood Orange Liqueur is available HERE. Developed with the UK’s top mixologists the cranberries are sourced from Wisconsin USA and infused with natural blood orange juices & orange rind. At 17% VOL the 50cl bottle arrives in a sturdy glass bottle that shows off the trademark bold colour. The double award-winning liqueur is sweet from the cranberries but the citrus from the orange keeps it refreshing rather than sickly. Drink it over a cube of ice or as they suggest topped off with prosecco as a cocktail. I love that the liqueur comes in different bottle sizes for different budgets and are the perfect size for stocking fillers. I like liqueur as a choice if you are buying alcohol as it lasts a longer time that a bottle of white. You have to drink it slowly and you can share it again and again.
