It has to be said that these Christmas gifts are things we would personally really rather like to open on the big day, too. So, if our best friends are reading this… thank you in advance.

SHOP: The Best Christmas Gifts For Women 2023

Jo Malone's Christmas crackers always sell out in record time, so get yours for your favourite person while you still can. This one is filled with three lovely miniature products including a Poppy & Barley cologne, English Pear & Freesia body and hand wash and a Wood Sage and Sea Salt body créme.

An accessory that will elevate any outfit (and leave the gift receiver speechless), this Shoreditch bag from Kurt Geiger comes adorned with an embellished bow and its signature eagle head. It's available in three colourways, but we love the teal for the festive season.

This Christmas, why not give the gift of perfect hair? This brilliant tool is not only a dryer, it's a curler, straightener and can give you perfect waves, too. It comes with a two year guarantee and its own storage case, making for a truly impressive gift.

A stunning timepiece, Armani's collection of steel strap watches make the ultimate gift for the woman who enjoys a little bit of luxury. While we immediately fell for the gold tone, the watch is also available in black or silver, depending on her preferences.

Miu Miu's earrings will make for a sweet and thoughtful present – they're available in several different colours, all of which feature the brand's logo in the centre.

If you really want to show someone you care, give them the comfiest slippers in the world. These fuzzy mules will even make January seem cosy, which is no mean feat.

A scarf is always the perfect winter warmer, and this one from Anthropologie is no exception. It's made responsibly, and can be styled in a multitude of ways.

An ingenious present, Sézane's beautifully made classic Breton tops come in a variety of colour combinations and can be personalised for no extra cost. Choose a name, memory or special date using up to 10 characters and it will be embroidered.

How to upgrade any dining table instantly? With Armani's luxe table set, which includes a placemat, coaster, napkin and napkin ring. There are different colours available, each made from glorious European linen.

The Salomon sneakers were a cool-girl staple this year, so we're certain that seeing them under the tree will light up her face instantly.

Your most treasured accessories deserve an equally special place to be stored. Aspinal's jewellery boxes are such a special gift – this one is handcrafted from beautiful full-grain leather and can even be personalised for that extra thoughtful touch.

For the maximalist you know and love, these earrings are ideal. Available in green and pink or blue and red, they're the ultimate party piece and make for a very stylish gift.

What could be better than giving the gift of Chanel? For any beauty fans in your life, the eyeshadow quads are irresistible – from the packaging right down to the product itself. This is a real treat to show how much you care.

As a result of the current sub-zero temperatures, what better gift than a beanie? Keep her head warm with this peach-toned embroidered beanie from Santa Cruz.

Is she obsessed with trainers? A slight twist on the classic Chuck Taylors, the Cruise model features a platform, exposed stitching and extra wide laces for the ultimate 90's look.

If Only If is the British brand making bedtime far more glamorous with its lovely collection of nightdresses. This one features beautiful hand-smocking and is made from the softest cotton voile. It's light, floaty and you'll want to wear it every night.

In case you haven't noticed, ballet pumps are ubiquitous once again. This is one of the prettiest pairs we've seen – buy them for your friend and maybe add a pair for yourself. You deserve it.

The beauty of this gift set is that not only does the lucky recipient get multiple lipsticks to enjoy, the case doubles up as a clutch bag. That's basically a Dior bag filled with beauty treats for less than £300 – dreamy.

A new pyjama set is always a good idea, especially when they're as luxurious as this set from Rebecca Rhoades, which comes complete with a matching scrunchie.

Made from 100% Turkish Aegean cotton, Rise&Fall's plush bathrobe will give you that hotel luxury feeling, wherever you are.

For the friend who's obsessed with their horoscope, this cosmos-themed bracelet from Amelia Scott is truly jaw-dropping; made from radiant lab-grown cubic zirconia and delicate blush pink enamel charms.

If you're stuck on what to buy, you can't really go wrong with champagne. How to make it even more special? Make it personalised. Veuve Clicquot's limited-edition bottle comes in a special tin that can be personalised with any message you like.

Trust me when I say that this is one of the best gifts you could give, particularly around Christmas time when your skin is feeling tired and probably dehydrated. These masks are magic, which is probably why so many celebrities swear by them. Perfect for a stocking filler or a (very) nice secret Santa present.

The beauty of John Lewis' ANYDAY range is that you can find premium-looking pieces for less. These slippers are a prime example and will make a lovely present for just £20. You can't really argue with that.

For your fabulous friend who already has everything, why not add a beaded bag to her wardrobe? This is sure to bring joy to any magpie you know – it's available in hot pink, too.

Net-a-Porter has one of the most impressive homeware selections you'll find – this Murano glass vase would make a very special Christmas gift indeed. The glass was hand-blown by artisans in Venice, according to the tradition of Murano glass manufacture that dates right back to the 13th century.

Missoma makes some of the loveliest jewellery that doesn't cost a fortune. These earrings will dazzle any lucky recipient and will earn you the reputation as the very best gift-givers.

There's something that just feels very luxurious about a new scarf and this one from Mulberry is as good as it gets. Available in four different colour combos, you can even personalise it with up to three initials for free.

If you're buying for a person who doesn't need more things, ATG offers gift vouchers that enable you to gift the gift of live entertainment. From West End musicals like Cabaret and The Lion King to amazing music and comedy performances across the UK, there's something to suit everyone.

If you're just looking for a smaller present, the gift of warm hands is fairly underrated. These mittens will be ideal for cold January walks – and beyond.

For any fashion-obsessed people in your life, treat them to a piece of Bottega – for their phone. There are a range of colours available, too.

The perfect place to store precious items while on the go or just a lovely addition to any dressing table or shelf, Roxanne First's heart-shaped jewellery boxes are a dreamy gift to unwrap this Christmas.

The perfect party bag, this bag can be carried as a clutch or worn as a cross-body style. It's a classic example of Vivienne Westwood's perfect fusion of the past and the contemporary – anyone would be lucky to find this under the Christmas tree.

This can be used as a make-up bag, washbag or even a clutch. It's beautifully embroidered and each purchase will directly support Elizabeth Scarlett's partnership with SUJAN’s Village Wildlife Volunteers. A perfect present, it can be personalised to make it extra special.

Enliven any tablescape with this pretty candle holder. Buy one as an object on its own or get a pair for an extra special present.

A chic addition to any breakfast table, these mugs are a lovely present for any tea or coffee lovers. They're sold as a pack of two and are less than £50.

It's a classic for a reason – a bougie candle is the sort of little luxury you don't necessarily buy for yourself, which makes it the perfect gift for Christmas. Any of Diptyque's scents are delicious but Cotton is particularly good. It smells just like freshly laundered sheets blowing in the breeze on a warm day. Delicious.

This stunning double-sided necklace from Clare Hill Designs features the shorthand symbol for 'brave' on one side, and the North Star with a lapis lazuli gemstone on the other.
