The best gifts for her will show the woman in your life just how much you appreciate her - whether it's your mum, bestie, niece, or sister - we've found the best gift ideas.

As Christmas looms large you've probably already chosen from the best non-chocolate advent calendars, maybe a beauty advent calendar or you might be you're a purist and always get a chocolate advent calendar. Well, it might be when you open day 15 that you think of buying for the woman in your life.

“It can be difficult finding the best gifts for her, particularly if you are not sure what she does and doesn’t like,” says Goodto’s Consumer Editor Heidi Scrimgeour.

“If you know the woman in question well, talk to her about the things she likes, as you never know what ideas that conversation might spark. If it’s someone you are not so well acquainted with then gifts that involve relaxation and pampering will always go down a treat. Sometimes the best gifts for her are the ones she least expects to receive.”
