Sophie Lou Jacobsen Ripple Cups in Smoke and Pink, £25 each, End Clothing
We fell in love with these perfect glasses the second we laid eyes on them. Designed by the brilliant Sophie Lou Jacobsen, they are characteristically quirky yet pretty and would make a very special gift. Now just to decide upon the colourway…
Nature Cushion, £29, Fy
Brighten up your best friend's sofa with this gorgeous dusky pink, nature-print cushion. Reminiscent of old-school tattoos (without the commitment), these soft cushions are hand-cut and sewn to order. We love!
Stocking Filler Gift Set, £40, Molton Brown
This limited-edition set contains no less than 10 shower gels by fragrance experts, Molton Brown and is a great way to sample a wide range of scents fully before deciding upon your favourite. We recommend Heavenly Gingerlily and Fiery Pink Pepper for the win.

Diptyque has only gone and won Christmas with this chic, scented white star. Simply hang it as a decoration and you can expect your house to smell incredible. This has our fireplace written all over it.
Slip Silk Leopard-print Face Covering, £39, Selfridges
It's looking like face-covering will be mandatory well into 2021, so why not treat her to this newly-launched luxe silk mask from Slip. Not only does it look great, but also will be kinder to her skin and hair than its rougher counterparts.
Crystal Kit For Feminist Empowerment, £16, Not On The High Street
If your friend needs a helping hand and a swift tap in the right direction, then may we recommend these crystals, all selected for female empowerment. This handy kit comprises four crystals: Chrysocolla- the ultimate empowerment stone, moonstone- emotions and thoughts balancer, citrine- the positivity stone and aventurine, which is believed to bring success and encourage leadership. She can either carry them on her or place them on her desk, where they will look rather pretty too.
Hedvig Ceramic Pot, £37, Fy
We have a lot of time for sweet little Hedvig and reckon she would be right at home with a tiny plant in her. As all Hedvigs are hand-thrown and painted, each one is completely unique. Rather like our best friends.
Selfie Phone Lens Kit, £19.99, Firebox
Elevate your mate's Instagram game with this kit from Firebox. The set includes fisheye, wide angle, macro, telescopic and CPL lenses, which attach to both front and rear facing phone cameras. And as they clip to your phone in seconds, they will never miss that shot again.

If your friend misses travelling to far flung destinations (we can relate) then surprise her with this brilliant photobook themed around amazing women. Packed full of society women, celebrities and royalty- she will be transported back to a fun bygone world full of attractive people in attractive places.
Jaffa Cake Gin, £27.95, Master of Malt
If your mate loves both Jaffa Cakes and gin then this is a no brainer. We also happen to have it on good authority that it makes the best Negronis in the world.
Tropical Illustrated Frida Kahlo Bowl, £17.99, Trouva
We don't know how anyone could fail to fall in love with this gorgeous Frida Kahlo bowl. The illustration, the wavy top, the colours, the animals… we could go on. And to top it off, it comes in an equally gorgeous gift box.
Travel Diffuser & Love Sleep Bedroom Blend, £45, thisworks
If your friend could do with a little help between the sheets this winter, then thisworks holds the key. Treat them to this travel diffuser + love sleep bedroom blend or spray which will help them connect more intimately with their partner and feel more relaxed and able to switch off from the day's toils at night.
Set of Six Slip Silk Skinny Scrunchies, £39, Cult Beauty
Designed to avoid hair creases, these skinny scrunchies not only look cute, but also protect your hair from the strain caused by most other hair ties. We love the pink, caramel and black set which are a good basic starting point for your silk scrunchie wardrobe.
Metallic Dot-Print Socks, £10 each or £15 for two pairs, Anthropologie
These Nordic socks would make a brilliant stocking filler for your fashion-forward friend. Whether they go bold wearing them with heels and a dress, or take a subtler approach, just peeking under jeans, they are sure to be a winner.
AIRY Scented Candle, £28, Selfmade
These eco-friendly, vegan candles not only look and smell delicious, but also have a second life as you can plant the jar, with seeded label, to grow poppies. And on top of this, 5% of profits are donated to the Black Minds Matter Charity. Win win.
Share A Hug Ring, £27, Not On The High Street
If you often wish you could see your best mate and give her a big squeeze, then this is the gift for you. Give her a constant finger hug with this sweet ring from Posh Totty. And you don't even need to know/guess her ring size, as it's fully adjustable. And as this was created in partnership with Women for Women International, £2 of the proceeds of each ring go directly to the charity. It's a no brainer.
Read More Books Pennant Flag In Dark Blue, £25, Counter Print
There is nothing better than curling up with a good novel when it's cold outside, so why not help her remember that huge pile of books she needs to get through, with this cool retro pennant flag.
