Whether she’s a beauty buff, a homebody or seriously stylish, Christmas shopping for a loved one can be tricky.

If seeking out the perfect gift for the woman in your life is getting you into a panic though, you’re in luck, because we’ve crafted a one-stop shop for all your present-buying needs.

From the practical to the wearable and downright indulgent, you’ll find just the thing to spoil her here.

Lucy Williams x Missoma, Roman Arc Coin Necklace, £139, Missoma

When it comes to Christmas there’s no better gift a girl could ask for than a piece of jewellery, especially when it’s made by British brand Missoma. Failsafe and guaranteed to go with everything, our favourite piece is this Roman Arc Coin Necklace designed in collaboration with popular blogger Lucy Williams.

Inspired by a trip to Italy earlier this year to celebrate her 30th birthday, the pieces depict iconography and cultural motifs from ancient Rome. This one in particular is plated with 18-carat gold and features a Roman coin attached to a curved bar and knotted-link chain.

Fujifilm Instax Share SP-2 Printer with 10 shots, £99.99, Boots

If your girl loves taking photos then this clever contraption could be the perfect gift. A gadget that means you can print photos in polaroid style directly from your smartphone, the Fujifilm Instax Share SP-2 Printer allows you to share memories at any time with high-speed printing in as little as 10 seconds.

There’s also no need to touch up your images after shooting as this is automatically done using its “intelligence filter” that uses processing technology to provide real results so your prints look their very best.

Tassel Kiev Saddle Bag, £105, Dr Martens

As style-savvy folks will know, simplicity is key when it comes to a bag that will last a lifetime, and this one from Dr Martens nails it. A traditional saddle-bag style, it is beautifully crafted in the brand’s signature smooth black leather and features two oversized tassels and fringing, a card holder, adjustable shoulder strap and classic branding.

Le Labo, Santal 33, £120, Net-a-Porter

If the person you’re buying for likes to wear fragrances that make her stand out from the crowd, we guarantee that she’ll fall head-over-heels for this one. And, while top-shelf scents come with a hefty price tag, Le Labo’s Santal 33 is most definitely worth it. An evocative scent that blends warm cardamom with floral notes of iris and violet, as well as the spice and musk of sandalwood, papyrus and cedarwood, it promises to quickly become a firm favourite.

Dyson Supersonic Special Edition Hair Dryer, £329.99, John Lewis

A brand that has revolutionised the way we style our hair, while Dyson’s Supersonic Hair Dryer is pricey it promises to change your recipients’ beauty routine forever. Designed with a microprocessor that regulates temperature 20 times every second, it prevents heat damage and protects shine while putting the motor in the handle means you can dry your hair quicker and without pesky arm-ache.

It also comes with a series of magnetic attachments, including a diffuser that helps reduce fizz and improve definition.

Sansindo Tiger Print Long Luxury Cotton Women’s Pyjama Set, £130, Desmond & Dempsey

Treating your loved one to some luxury nightwear is sure to put a smile on their face and this set is so lavish that it could even make an appearance at the Christmas dinner table.

Made by British brand Desmond & Dempsey, our favourite is this Sansindo Tiger Print set that comes in navy and is inspired by the type of PJs Coco Chanel would wear. Finished with mother-of-pearl buttons, the shirt is tailored for a comfy fit while the trousers are cut loose with a drawstring and elastic waistband. Available in sizes XS to XL.

Charlotte Tilbury, Charlotte’s Beauty Icons Set, £55, Net-a-Porter

Got a beauty-obsessed beau? Then nothing but the best will do and while this set from legendary make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury is seriously luxurious, it doesn’t break the bank either.

A limited-edition collection of Tilbury’s best-selling products, it includes miniature versions that are ideal for those who love to travel or want to try out the brand for the first time. It comes with a Full Fat Lashes mascara, Charlotte’s Magic Cream, Wonderglow face primer as well as the K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in B Perfect and Lip Cheat liner in Pillow Talk.
