Gifts for Friends

After gifts for Mum, and gifts for him be it Husband, Boyfriend or Dad, gifts for friends are probably the next thing on your ever increasing gift list. Whereas a man might buy a best friend a drink at the pub to say 'Happy Birthday' a women is much more likely to buy a gift for her female friends. This doesn't just happen with a gift for birthday it can be for that car lift home or because a friend has been particularly supportive or helpful during a not so great time for you.

Whatever the reason, the perfect gift as a gesture of thanks will always be received with surprise and thanks. So, the only question remains, what to buy? Us girls do bother to take time to think about the person for whom the gift is for, simply because that is what we do! If your friend has a bohomian side then an ethnic necklace or bracelet will be perfect such as those at Nkuku. Not only is Nkuku jewellery fair trade it is made from natural and recycled material - great for eco-warrior girl.

If your friend just likes pretty jewellery the Nkuku Mohini Earrings are sophisticated and pretty in equal measure and at £8.95 won't break the bank.

Gifts for Friends that are soon about to enjoy a break in sun will appreciate a beautiful jewellery roll or makeup bag to keep those holiday jewels and makeup essentials in. The Seek Unique new Ruby and Teal Jewellery Rolls and Makeup Bags are a prefect choice.

If she is a
Monica tidiness type friend then organisation is key and what better than an earring box. Afterall she is hardly the kind person to leave her earrings on her bedside cabinet when she gets in late.

If she is more of a sex in the
city type, then a glamourous present such as the Glitter mirror compact will make those lipstick fixes that much easier and will fit in to her day bag or evening bag.

If your friend prefers nothing better than a soak in the bath with a good book and a glass of wine, indulge her with a beautiful natural candle made in the Ribble Valley in the ever popular Shine fragrance. This is sure to ease away the stresses and strains of the day.

Dulwich Designs Jewellery Boxes

I always get the urge to have a clear out at this time of year. I expect that this might be seen as the spring clean type of event that my Mother religiously undertakes although I have a feeling our motives are different. For her it is a chance to clean and reorganise and officially of course that is my reason, however, I think for me it has more to do with getting rid of the old to make way for the new. i.e. clothes, shoes and jewellery. I like to think that I am helping the ecomony in these difficult times by generously donating my old clothes to charity shops (all of which are newish and clean and ironed, I hasten to add) and helping the retail industry by buying new things.

I have to say I love tidying and reorganising my cupboards and drawers which I realise is little on the sad side but I do like to know what I have and what I am going to wear. If I haven't worn something for a few years - do I really need it? One area that I leave to last is my jewellery. My jewellery seems to fall into different areas. The first being items of jewellery received as presents as a child but probably will never wear. I keep this in a seperate small jewellery box as I am very sentimentally attached to it and will never part with any of it.

I then have jewellery that is suitable for a night out and every day jewellery. I store this all together but not always successfully as it can get tangled. This is why ahead of drawer tidiers, storage boxes and yet more see through shoe boxes, I will be investing in a jewellery box this season to hold all my jewellery.
I am hoping that someone will buy this for me on as a birthday gift. A jewellery box is a timeless addition to a dressing table that the lucky recipient will be glad she has every day when she is looking for that one necklace that
matches her outfit. Dulwich Designs have a great selection new design jewellery boxes that make perfect gifts for her. This includes their sophisticated black leather oslo jewellery box with the funky hot pink lining. Dulwich Designs Oslo range represents excellent value for money as the large leather jewellery box is under £70 and really is huge. If you prefer a colour the beautiful Dulwich Designs Leather Jewellery Box in Cassis is stunning and comes complete with a carry handle for ease of moving around and is availabe in medium or large. Growing in popularity are earring boxes and if you are looking for a special gift for a special lady, the earring box from the Belgravia range is a touch of luxury she will appreciate.

New Lua Jewellery Rolls, Pouches and Makeup Bags

Finding a gift for her can be difficult, be it a gift for your wife, or or girlfriend or a gift for a friend. Sometimes all you want to find is something different for between £10 and £15 as a small token of your appreciation. With the warmer weather finally upon us, everyone will be hitting for shops for clothes and accessories such as shoes and handbags. Whilst there are some lovely finds on the high street, it doesn't leave much for those of us looking for small gifts for her. The high street only seems to consider this near Christmas.

The answer is to look for a gift that will last all year round but will be especially useful over holiday season. Lua jewellery rolls fit the bill perfectly especially in the vibrant summer colours that this seasons collection is available in. Whether you opt for the jewellery roll or the jewellery pouch, which is great for a night away, you can also always team it with a matching makeup bag for an extra special gift.

All jewellery rolls, jewellery pouches and makeup bags are made from silk taffeta with brightly coloured satin linings so finding that exlusive mascara that has worked it's way to the bottom of the makeup bag is far easier.
