We’re sure your inboxes have been filled with reminders – months in advance – that Christmas is just around the corner. And even with the countless reminders, somehow buying a Christmas gift seems to slip off the to-do list, especially when our end-of-year social (and work) calendar fills up faster than ever. That’s why a curated gift guide, like this one, will streamline the gift-buying process, giving you more time to enjoy whatever festivities you may have planned. 

So, if you’re in need of some gift inspo for the special woman in your life – whether that’s your mum, grandma, auntie, sister, cousin, or partner-in-crime, below are the best Christmas gifts that she is guaranteed to love.

The best Christmas gifts for her 2023
