Here’s the thing about buying Christmas gifts for women: candles and chocolates are overrated. Sure, they would appreciate a lovely-smelling candle or a holiday set with their favourite treats, but it would mean so much more to them if you buy something unique. Something that makes them feel like you took the time to pick a present. 

Need help? These fantastic Christmas gifts for your mom, BFF, sister, or girlfriend are guaranteed to be the highlight of the holidays!
