Last time we were considering the male species and how you could take your gift giving to the next level. Now is the time to think about the women in your life; whether it's your wife, your mother, your significant other, your auntie, your sister from another mister, the list goes on. Gift giving for the fairer sex (sorry guys ) can be a little tricky so we at Unusual are on hand to give you some great ideas and help make the women in your life feel like a Queen.
Mum. Mother, Mummy, whatever you call this incredible woman, show her how much you care with a stunning piece of jewellery by Paula Bolton. Any one of her exquisite creations will be received with joy we promise! May we suggest the Josef Hoffman Botanical Inspirations Collection; each piece is cast in silver and set with Blue Agate, Jade, Lapis and Mother of Pearl. We couldn't decide which piece to choose so we'll give you the link to Paula Bolton's page and you can select either a bangle, brooch, earrings or pendant with chain, or a combination!
Grandma. Grandmother, Nana. You could go down the traditional route of something for the bath but why not step it up a notch with Rathbornes Luxury Gift Set Hand & Body Wash and Lotion? We have the Dublin Tea Rose, Oud and Patchouli set which has top notes of citrus and raspberry, middle notes of rosebuds, vanilla and a base of oud, patchouli and amber resin. It’s bound to bring a smile to her face and why not pair it with a matching candle to add to the ambience?
Sister Sisters..sisters..there were never such devoted sisters.. Whether you love her or tolerate her, we have some ideas that are bound to suit. We love Treaty Jewellery which is quite simply stunning yet affordable. All the celebs are wearing it most recently Perrie from Little Mix, Kendall Jenner from the Kardashian crew and Hilary Alexander OBE, celebrated fashionista and journalist to name but a few; there’s bound to be something that catches your eye.
Aunt. Auntie. It doesn’t matter what you call her, just so long as you do, I can hear her now! Impress her with your thoughtfulness and give her something that she’ll use often and think nice thoughts about you when she does! Edge Company is the home of great taste and beautiful things so how about the Ginkgo Silver Coloured Leaf Plate Occasional Bowl Platter? It’s the perfect place to stow jewellery, keys, small change etc and will bring you to mind every time she uses it.
Or maybe a Premium Scented Candle or Premium Reed Diffuser from Charles Farris? Chandlers to Her Majesty the Queen since 1845 (that’s candlemakers to you and me) with a matching Royal Warrant, the candles are hand poured and made from the finest beeswax with the most incredible fragrances that can scent a room with ease. Personally we love these as they burn evenly without tunnelling and the tin candles burn for a minimum of 20 hours. Auntie will be thrilled. The diffusers are equally fragrant, perhaps get her one of each!
Wife Lover Significant Other All of the above gift ideas would be bound to please that special woman in your life but if you want to make a romantic statement then it has to be Lux Florals. Real roses specially treated to last for an entire year and longer with care, beautifully presented in a round or square presentation box. Take a look at these beautiful blooms and say it with flowers.
A more unusual yet just as romantic gesture is the Kooduu Synergy which is an ambient light, wine cooler and Bluetooth speaker combined. You could fill it with ice, pop in a bottle or two of champagne and play her favourite songs while she relaxes and marvels at your ingenuity. We have one of these and the sound is just stunning.
So that’s Christmas sorted for the men and women in our lives; next time we’ll be getting down with the kids!
