Makeup: only the most expensive brands. Clothes: a wardrobe that rivals the Kardashians’. Bath goodies: enough to start a store. What can you get the girl who’s seen it all and has it all?
If you’re stumped for ideas and want something a tad different, here are our ideas for beating everyone else in the present stakes…
You might be scared of getting her the wrong shade of lipstick, but what about the ultimate makeup area? Hollywood makeup mirrors are the cosmetic lover’s dream, with perfect lighting for applying foundation and a stylish look that suits practically any space.

Personalised photo box
No matter how particular she is with brands, she won’t be able to resist a meaningful picture – find something that means a lot to her (making sure she looks her best) and get it printed onto a box she can store things in. Whether it’s a snap of her pampered pooch, a holiday she really enjoyed, or just a photo of the two of you – she’ll appreciate the thought behind it and will treasure it as one of her top gifts…even above those handbags she had to have.
UK weekend away
No one (and we mean no one) can resist a cheeky weekend break. And while the romantic climes of abroad might be expensive, a UK break is just as wonderful (without the excessive travelling). Have a hunt around for romantic B&Bs – especially for out-of-season offers, and surprise her with a bottle of champagne and a couple of nights away. Whether it’s a city break to explore the shops or an idyllic scene in the middle of nowhere, the time away will be as rewarding as a full-on holiday and you’ll be top of the list in terms of thoughtfulness.

Now this one’s a real winner – but you do have to have luck on your side. Ask relatives if there is any family jewellery that’s currently going unused and unloved. It doesn’t have to be a diamond ring, but the thought behind gifting something that belongs to someone dear to you will mean the world to her. From your grandma’s old costume brooch to an old necklace of your mum. Second-hand jewellery is a sure-fire way to show her you care.
