We've gone big on our Christmas gifts for women this year, because let's face it, we've really come to realise the true value of our friends during this challenging (erm, actually, plain awful) year. And lucky for them, ‘tis the season to show them just how much you care. Whether you're looking for unique gifts for the lady in your life, for your sister, girlfriend, wife or if you just need a gift for your favourite woman friend, we've hunted down the very best Christmas presents for her, whoever she is.

You are not alone in your mission – we all need gift ideas from time to time, which is why we've hunted down original presents that will suit even the woman who has everything. From face masks to pretty jewels to homeware to brighten up any working from home space, this is everything you need to complete your Christmas shopping.

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.
