Stocking Fillers / Secret Santa gifts for her 

Shop my Secret Santa/Stocking Filler Gift Guide here

Anthropologie: Always so many amazing little gift ideas on Anthro but I've whittled it down to some of my favourites:
A snowglobe which also doubles up as a festive Pine scented candle. Very cute! 
- A Monogram Trinket Dish - If you know someone who wears lots of rings this would be a lovely stocking stuffer. 
Cocktail themed linen napkins! Such a cute and fun idea and the perfect way to elevate your cocktail. 

Personalised napkins / bows: It's no secret I adore supporting small businesses and my lovely follower Amy owns the sweetest business where she hand personalises napkins, crackers, bows and more. They will make the most perfect forever gifts, whether it's for your Christmas table, your wedding table or even as a stocking filler! I think it's the perfect forever gift and you can completely personalise it so you could put a special quote or bespoke phrase on the items. 

Molton Brown: This festive bauble gift set is perfectly Christmas themed and also a really nice luxurious gift. I also ADORE their crackers too, I dream of having a Molton Brown Christmas cracker around my Christmas table.

Bamford Christmas cracker: I spend a lot of time in the Cotswolds so I am truly in love with British brand, Bamford. Their beauty crackers this year are magical, filled with wellness goodies which all smell delightful. 

Wild Deodorant: May seem like a strange one to gift Deodorant, but Wild is so much more than that. Not only are they sustainable and contain clean ingredients which is so much better for our body but they also come in really lovely scents too! This Christmas themed Spiced Orange and Pear starter pack is a the perfect starter. Use code EMSHELDON for Wild discount. 

Tails CocktailsA really good one for Christmas Day! I would say this would be a great one for the chef of the household so all they need to do when they're rushed off their feet is grab a glass and put themself an already made cocktail. They have so many different type but my favourites are Espresso Martini and Whiskey Sour. 

The White CompanyI always think that gifting the Cashmere Bed Socks is a great Secret Santa gift. Nothing better than warm tootsies during the winter! 

SpaceNK - Normally SpaceNK only release their Shimmering Spice Candle for the Christmas months, however this year they have also released the Winter Pine scent also and they come in a duo! They're my favourite Christmas Candles by far, the best smell and amazing price.

Laneige - Their Lip Balm is the number one selling lip balm across the board. It's tiny and compact and the perfect Secret Santa/Stocking Stuffer gift! 

Amazon - Guys, I need to put you on the Amazon sleepwear hype. Oh my gosh do they have the comfiest pj's ever! I love getting a fresh, clean pair of Pyjamas for Christmas and Amazon do the most amazing kind! You can also pair them with these fluffy slippers too. 

Lydia Millen - I can't not mention my fellow content creator, Lydia, and her gorgeous book that she brought out this year! Evergreen is an absolute delight and I take great comfort in reading a page a day. Gorgeous writing and a wonderful perspective this would be such a treat for anyone! 

Beauty & Wellness gifts for her

Dyson - The Airwrap is just THE best hair product to own and although they are so expensive, it's worth nothing that they do it all. Curl, straighten, blow dry. Rather than buying all the individual tools for this, just get the Airwrap and you have it all there. 

Neom -  I really love electric diffusers, they create such a calming atmosphere. Neom are one of the top brands in wellness and their wellness diffuser is such a good price. They also offer their own oils too. I like their Scent to Sleep Oil

Chanel - I've seen this hand cream alll over social media. It smells super luxurious and is also so aesthetically pleasing. 

Ouai  - I really love Ouai, they offer some really great products! Like their leave in conditioner, smells so good! But also their Bath Bombs (or... Chill Pills) are a really great gift to give! I know I'd love to receive them. Perfect for rest and relaxation over the Christmas period. 

Elemis - The queen of cleansers! Elemis are offering a trio of their cleansing balms which I think is such a great gift set. All the different scents but the same gorgeous cleanser. 

Necessaire - Another product that I have seen all over TikTok, this is 'The Body Ritual' gift set and includes all the great products that Necessaire have to offer. Included in the gift set is the Body Exfoliator, Body Wash, Body Serum and Body Lotion. 

Olaplex - Olaplex is my favourite hair product, I really do vouch for them and how much they have transformed my hair. All of the best products are included in this gift set, so great for one of your girlfriends or maybe a sister! 

Rare Beauty - Probably one of the most popular makeup brands of the year, this Rare Beauty Blush & Glow Set includes two of their blushes and two of their highlights. 

Charlotte Tilbury - Charlotte's most popular colour 'Pillowtalk' in a gift set. Included is a mascara, blush, lipstick, lipliner and eyeliner. 

ByTerry - I love love love the ByTerry CC Serum, it's probably one of my favourites. Sunny Flash may look dark but it actually is so good at fitting in with your skin type and making you have the most Sunkissed glow without going too far. In this gift set you have two of the serums - one travel size and one full size. 

Le Labo - All of the Le Labo perfumes are sooo nice but one of my favourites is Another 13. This is such a universally loved scent, yo can't go wrong with buying this for someone. 

Jo Loves - Jo Loves, AKA by Jo Malone have a gorgeous range of scents but my favourite is Pomelo. It's similar to the Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir but slightly less intense. Gorgeous and wintery. 

Giorgio Armani - I can't not mention beauty gifts without talking about my favourite scent from the year, Giorgio Armani Si. I have worn this year round and have had the most compliments, I think, ever! It's beautiful and powdery and super luxurious.

K18 - Expensive, but one of the best hair masks you can buy. I've noticed such a difference in my hair when using the K18 leave in conditioner and this would be a really lovely and luxurious treat for someone!

Sol De Janeiro - If you've got a teenager to gift for, or maybe even just a woman who loves her smellies then Sol de Janeiro is the best! Every product smells so good but the best idea is to grab her one of the Bum Bum sets where she can try out all their different products. 

L'Occitane - The L'Occitane Almond range is my favourite range of any bath product. They offer this 'Almond' Gift Set which includes all of their best Almond range products. It really smells incredible and is so soothing and moisturising.  

Farmacy - I mentioned them last year and I'm mentioning them again! Farmacy are THE best when it comes to clean and ethical skincare. If you have someone in mind who's all about clean skincare, then this is the best brand to pick up something for them from. If you're stuck you can't go wrong with their Green Clean Balm. It seriously rivals all other cleansing balms out there and it's 100% natural! 

L'Oreal - Another hair product but if you know someone who has coloured hair, then they'll for sure know how much upkeep is included! I swear by the L'Oreal Metal Detox Shampoo. It brings my coloured hair to life. No wonder I've been having so many compliments recently! 

Bumble & Bumble - So many amazing hair products so in theory, you can't go wrong but I swear by their heat protectant spray. It also smells incredible! 

Floral Street - I loveeeee Floral Street perfumes and my favourite is the Wild Orchid and Vanilla. Such a gorgeous, cosy warm scent. This travel gift box is the perfect gift for someone who just loves their smells. 

The Body Shop - Their body butters have always been iconic and they're still just so rich and moisturising - they've got Christmas Scented ones too! I love the Cherries and Cheer scent. I also really rate their sleep spray! Is there anything better than a lovely lavender scented pillow?

Oral B Toothbrush - One of the best things I like to buy every Christmas is an electric toothbrush, it might not sound like a glossy gift, but it's a useful gift and that's what really counts plus the tech of Oral B is SO good nowadays, it really gets everyone talking. They're currently up to 70% off here.  Oral B toothbrushes are my holy grail, they last forever and they are usually on great offer too. This is such a good useful and efficient gift plus who doesn't want the gift of glowing, healthy teeth? My dentist always says he can tell when someone has brushed their teeth using an electric toothbrush. 

Luxury Gifts for her

Gucci - I've always been a fan of Gucci belts, when I say I've had mine for over 5 years and there's next to no wear and tear speaks to the craftsmanship. This year, I saw they released these 'Gucci' lettering belts and I love them! Such a cool statement. 

Saint Laurent - Recently, I have found myself taking less and less out with me if I'm going to dinner and I've been longing for a pouch to take with me, rather than a whole handbag. I love the Saint Laurent Pouches. I think they're so chic! 

Toteme - Is this not the jacket of the year?! An instant classic. 

Self Portrait - One of my favourite brands of all time.  If you want to gift someone special something special to wear on Christmas Day then look no further than Self Portrait. I love this crystal embellished dress, but they equally have so so many more incredible party pieces. 

Jimmy Choo - The shoe brand of the year for me has been Jimmy Choo. I just treated myself to a new pair from their 'Flower Collection' and just had to put them on my gift guide because they're so gorgeous! 

Monica Vinader - I can't do a luxury gift guide without talking about Monica Vinader. I've been wearing these pearl earrings all year and I really love them, have had so many compliments! If you know someone who loves a statement earring these would be a really lovely present. I've also put together a whole Monica Vinader gift guide - shop here! Make sure you don't forget to use the code EM20 for 20% off!

Van Cleef & Arpels - I think Van Cleef may have one for jewellery item of the year. The iconic Alhambra bracelet. And guys, I want one really bad. Probably more than a love bangle in all honesty! I'm sure that someone very special in your life is equally lusitng after one of these so if you're feeling extra generous this year, this would be just incredible. 

Fitness gifts for her

David Lloyd Gym Membership - I have been a loyal member of David Lloyd for years and always want to promote them. For someone who may be interested in getting into more fitness for the year, then this is a great option and a really generous gift. You're able to buy them a gift card or just pay for their membership for x amount of months. They have gyms all across the country and so wherever your significant other lives, there will be one within driving distance for certain! 

Lululemon - So many pieces from Lululemon this year that I have been loving. Firstly, their Align collection is just second to none when it comes to quality and if you have a fitness person in your life then you just absolutely must purchase them something from this collection. I would either do the Define Align Jacket or the Align Leggings... or both! 
Another item I've been loving is the Court Rival Tennis Skirt... But not for Tennis. I've been wearing it as an everyday skirt and it's been a godsend! I've had so many compliments, nobody would ever know it was meant to be for physical activity. But equally if you do have a tennis lover in your life it would still look so so good. 

Varley - A good gym bag is an essential and I love this one from Varley. They're a really luxe sportswear brand, just even browsing through their store is an experience! 

Sporty & Rich - A really fun, athleisure brand. I love this cap! For when you want to hide that three day unwashed hair because you're about to workout... 

Puma - I love Puma's Cali shoes and I wear them every single day when I'm walking around London. They're great at keeping my feet supported ( I normally do around two hours of walking a day!) and I never get blisters. If you have a lover of walking in your life, pick these up! 

Nike - My other physical excercise is obviously my HIIT workouts and I know a lot of people also enjoy them too. For me, Nike do the best trainers for a variety of workouts (like you get in HIIT) so worth grabbing pair of these if you know someone who has recently started doing HIIT or someone who just needs a new pair of trainers to seem them through! 

Gymshark - One of my favourite sportswear brands. I will purchase their seamless leggings again and again. 

Adanola - Probably the most popular hoodie of all time, so if you do manage to get your hands on one then go go go! They're so comfy and such a good price point for the quality. 

Ankle Weights - If you have someone in your life who is into more low impact workouts (Barre, Yoga etc) then why not grab them a pair of ankle weights? Just a little bit extra weight for them! 

Stanley - Another viral product of the year... The Stanley Cup. It's probably rare for someone to not have one of these at this point, but if you know someone who doesn't then I highly recommend getting one. You can't go wrong with drinking more water right?!

Homeware gifts for her

Shop my homeware gift guide here

Le Creuset - A staple in every single kitchen. The Le Creuset casserole dishes can be pricey, but they last forever. They have so many colours so you can easily choose one that would suit that special someone! 

Nespresso - Another kitchen staple these days, there are a tonne of different Nespresso machines on offer but I personally love the Vertuo. It's probably worth picking up some Nespresso pods to go alongside it too! 

Our Place - Such rave reviews when it comes to the Always Pans. They truly change the way I cooked! When you have good quality cookware it makes cooking so much more easier. 

The White Company - There are so many things that I could say you should get from The White Company - spoilt for choice! But for an absolute fail safe then it has to be the Winter Candle. It's the perfect scent for these colder months and more specifically December! 

Anthropologie - If you want to get something a little bit special and maybe jazzy then have a look at Anthropologie. I saw these gorgeous serving trays which would be a lovely addition to a Christmas spread! 

Jo Malone - Everyone always loves receiving Jo Malone and I think a particularly good present is one of their Townhouse Diffusers. They're refillable so it's not like they only last three months then done, you are able to buy more scents for them so they last a lifetime! Such a good present and gives someone a chance to experiment with all the different scents they have to offer. Their Christmas range this year is my ultimate favourite, Gingerbread themed it feels as if you have opened the oven on a Christmas baking day, it's truly special.

Byredo - One of my favourite brands, Byredo are so luxurious. They offer some gorgeous hand soaps and hand creams that not only smell amazing but look so chic and would add a lovely element to the edge of someones sink! Tulipmania is my favourite, but they have lots of other gorgeous scents on offer too. 

Daylesford - Alongside their incredible farmshop, Daylesford also offer some gorgeous homeware products. I really love their 'Love' glasses - how cute! 

Telmont Champagne - You just have to have Champagne on Christmas Day! I really really love Telmont, having recently discovered them this year. Such a gorgeous family run business and such a delicious champagne.
