50 Christmas gifts for her to suit every budget and taste

With just three weekends left to do our Christmas shopping, time is ticking to find those perfect presents.

Even if you know your gift recipient better than they know themselves, it can still be a daunting prospect. Perhaps they already seem to have everything, or you’ve exhausted their list of interests for presents over the years, leaving you without any ideas for this Christmas.

Try not to stress. There’s still time to order online, and the UK high street is chock-full of unique pieces you can pick up in person.

Plus, you’ve got us to help you out.

We’ve hand picked 50 gifts for women to get you out of your rut, with ideas to suit all budgets and tastes.

Whether the woman in your life loves food, fashion, gaming, or gardening, these presents can spark your gift-giving imagination – and will hopefully end in them being all smiles once the wrapping paper’s off.

Buy for £22 from Boostology.

5pk Cotton Rich Percy Pig Knickers
