When it comes to Christmas presents, finding the right present can be difficult. The ideal gift should be what the recipient would love to have, but may not think to buy for themselves. The perfect present should be something that brings instant joy and comfort, and at best, something someone can use in their everyday lives. A useful gift does not, however, mean the gift cannot feel chic and luxurious.
There are countless gifts for women at Christmas, and the sheer amount available can feel overwhelming. With the dark winter nights growing longer and more of us staying at home, opting for a relaxing, bedtime gift will not go amiss.
Our guide to women’s Christmas gifts is here to help you find that perfect present.
Upgrading to a silk pillow has serious, luxurious benefits. Not only does the material give a softer feel, but helps keep your hair and skin shiny and hydrated. Not Just Pajamas’ mulberry silk pillowcases with their chic artistic design look as good as they feel.
Memory Foam Pillow

Cotton Bed Set
The cold, cosy winter nights need not mean you cannot gift someone with a splash of colour. Hand block-printed by artisans in India, LivvyB’s bed set is vibrant and cool all year round.

This perfect pairing by The Ethical Silk Company enhances your sleep routine with this sleeping beauty set.
