1. Harris tweet iPhone cover, £19.99
Simply gorgeous, and different to any other covers i've seen.  Yes please.

2. Club Bonbon six month supply of lip balm, £30
A gift that just keeps on giving.  Your lucky lady will receive a brand new freshly hand-made lip balm every month for six months with this little beauty. Sumptuous.

3. Penny Masquerade typewrite necklace, £21.00
Oh my, I challenge anyone to resist this cute little necklace.  It would be a double bonus if the lady in question was a writer, but that isn't a pre-requisite. Get it. Now. 
oh, and if you've got a smartphone you can scan in this little code and it'll take you straight through to the website.  Technology, eh?)

4. Fox cushion, Donna Wilson, £30
This would be a welcome addition in any girl's home.  Bright, bold and made of 100% lambs wool.  Hot.

5. Tails cocktails, Selfridges, £11.99
...tis the to be jolly...so why not take the stress out of making the cocktails and get these ready made ones from Tails.  Choose from Espresso Martini, Cosmo or a Mai Tai, add ice, and you're good to go.  Now i'm not one to endorse drinking, but it is Christmas, and when in Rome and all that!

6. Simple Simply Gorgeous gift set, Boots, £5.00
If your lady enjoys her weekend getaway with the girls this little travel pack will come in very handy. Cute, colourful, and proving good things do come in small packages.

7. Lovers' glove, Seasalt, £30
Be still my heart, i've fallen in love with these beauties.  Perfect for a romantic winter's walk - go on, show her your softer side.  The babies are also 80% lambs wool. 

8. Front Cover Exotic Eyes set,Boots, £12.00
I don't know about you but i'm not exactly great at buying make-up for myself.  So i'm always grateful if someone does it for me - queue this neat little compact. Containing everything you need to achieve the perfect feline flick including 4x eyeshadows, kohl pencil, mascara and of course some how-to instructions.  Meow.

9. Fish pedicure, Wahanda, £10
"Alright Mark?" "Alright Lauren".  If i've totally lost you i'm doing my 'The only way is Essex' impression.  Love that show. So make like Amy and get involved in this latest craze - fish pedicures.  This definitely ticks the 'unusual xmas present box'!

10. HeavenV health spas,£35+
Everyone woman likes to be pampered so show her some love and treat her to a facial, pedicure or a full body massage.  HeavenV's packages start at £35. Heavenly.

11. Essentially Me bespoke perfume sets, £10-45
Every women loves a bit of smelly at Christmas, but why not personalise it this year.  Give her a set of miniature perfumes from Essentially Me, let her choose her favourite (from a wide range including souk, white blooms and classique) and then they'll make up an eau de parfum or eau de toilette based on her choices. Delightful.

12. Cuisinier silicone oven mitss, QVC, £14.50
Now normally I wouldn't recommend buying a woman something for the kitchen and disguising it as a present.  But I could not resist these pink silicone oven gloves. Occasionally fashion and function collide, this is now.  They will make a hot addition to anyone's kitchen. 

13. Clipper tea speciality gift box, £20.00
A cute little set including china tea cups, fudge biscuits and of course some delightful Clipper tea.  A real British treat.

14. Andrew Barton's overnight bag, £10.00
From the man who can make any woman look 10 years younger this handy little bag includes essential grooming products for your locks. With wash and care products to add shine,styling products to add texture and hold and a cushion brush for instant styling, you get a lot of goodness for you buck with this one.

15. Radiopaq dots earphones, Amazon & HMV, £14.99
Small, colourful and so much better than those boring white ones that every women and her dog is wearing at the mo. Chose from seven different colours. Ooo and they also block out ambient sound - she's happy, you're happy, what's not to love?

16. Bumpits, JML direct, £9.99
Love, love, love these little jems that are causing a bit of a stir in the US. Simply pop in and voila, a 60s beehive in seconds.  A handy little stocking filler, and budge-busting too!

17. Lacura concealer pen, Aldi, £3.59
Touche eclat, you've got some competition.  Budget-friendly and it works.  The perfect little stocking filler.

18. Heart initial necklace, Urban Outfitters, £10.00
"Especially for you..." Ah, if Kylie and Jason were still an item i'm sure he'd get her a special K version of this necklace to show his love. 

19. Beautifully Delicious gift sets, Sainsburys, £5-8.00
Does what it says on the tin.  Smells divine and it's wonderfully moisturising too. Yum.
