When it comes to find the right Christmas gift your mum, sister, wife, or any other leading lady in your circle, the best gifts for women are more about making a considerate gesture.
From pretty jewellery to top-shelf essentials and chic smart-home additions, I decided to make a Gift Guide with a variety of products and prices to cover all types and tastes. Chances are that I will keep adding items to the list so check time to time in case you run out of ideas.
Lyle & Scott, Patchwork Hoodie
The well known British Lifestyle brand Lyle & Scott released their new collection for men and women and it was really hard to choose something as everything was gorgeous and I went for this Warm Rose/Nightshade Blue Hoodie. First you can’t get it wrong with a hoodie, perfect to use at home, at the gym, to go for a run or just to have a casual look to go out, I loved the colour combination perfect for an elegant sport outfit. Quality wise is made of 100% organic cotton the quality of the fabric is excellent, I have washed it several times because I have been using it non stop and the colour never faded away, the fabric remains intact without fluff, etc.
I would only recommend to check out the right size for you, this is a oversized fit hoodie so to the size guide on the website I would add some extra cm, I didn’t realised about it and I got an M making sure I wouldn’t have an issue with my large shoulders and chest but probably an S would fit me better. There is also a very similar Utility Patchwork Jacket that I also wanted to have because it was not only pretty but very useful for the rainy UK.
Lyly & Scott, Patchwork Hoodie – Warm Rose/Nightshade Blue, £65 at Lyle & Scott

SimpleHuman, Sensor Mirror Trio
The Sensor Mirror Trio 20cm Round from Simplehuman is just as beautiful as it is beautifying. The innovative design boasts three levels of magnification in one mirror so that you can see your make up artistry in all its detail.
Here’s how the different levels will make your grooming and pruning routines all the more effective: the 1x magnification is ideal for checking your look at the true size (you look great, we just know it!); the 5x magnification allows you to view your entire face with enhanced clarity and detail, which makes it perfect for your general make up application; finally, the 10x magnification provides an extremely close-up view that’s suitable for your up-close rituals — think: tweezing and eyeshadow application! With varying levels of magnification and surgical-grade LED bulbs that mimic daylight, your visage will be reflected with exact accuracy so that you can achieve perfectly precise make up application. The built-in sensors detect your approach, so the mirror lights up automatically – then the sensors adjust to your movement, so that the mirror stays illuminated ‘til you’re done (and then switches itself off). Fully adjustable, you can tilt the mirror to view virtually any angle in comfort, and the brilliant micro-reflectors disperse the light effectively – so there’s no glare, shadow or colour compromise. With no cords to clutter your dressing table, the mirror is charged via USB (cable and adaptor included) and holds a single charge for 5 weeks. It’s sleek, chic and totally unobtrusive – your face (and all those who’ve witnessed your ‘I did my make up in the dark’ disasters) will thank you for it!
