Christmas is a time when we show love and appreciation for our friends and family by exchanging gifts so I decided to do some research and share some suggestions for anyone that's struggling with what to get a loved one :)
Perfume: You can never ever go wrong with gifting a lady a glorious smelling bottle of perfume, it is always a winner! Even better if it comes in a gift set with matching lotion and bath gel. My pick at the moment will be the Giorgio Armani Si Eau de Pargum Gift Set. Deliciously sensual fragrance, you can read my review here. Another is the Marc Jacobs Daisy Gift Set, lovely fragrance, even lovelier packaging for the holidays. I think the biggest perfume shop in Lagos is Essenza and they are located at the Palms as well as the malls in Surulere and Ikeja,
A Handbag: Show me a lady that doesn't love handbags, I will show you a million that do. Trust me when I say there is no such thing as too many handbags so this is always a great choice for a gift. Top on my handbag wishlist is the Celine Edge bag *swooonnnn*.. Some shops that sell authentic luxury designer goods in Lagos are The Polo Avenue (Ozumba Mbadiwe, VI) and Florence H (Musa Yaradua, VI), check them out...
Makeup: For the girly girl, makeup and/or tools is always guaranteed to put a smile on her face. Thankfully brands like MAC and Inglot are now here in Lagos (at the Palms Shopping mall) so you have a wide variety of eyeshadows, blushes, powders, lipsticks and brush sets to choose from. Just make sure you get help from the store assistants :)...
If you were looking for an all-inclusive makeup gift set, the Urban Decay Naked Vault is the one!! It contains three of their cult favorite eyeshadow palettes (Naked, Naked 2 and Naked 3), three eye pencils, three lip glosses and three blushes/bronzers! My heart is happy just looking at this beauty!
A Gadget: Don't let no one tell you that us girls are not gadget people.. We do love our technology- phones, tablets, headphones, bring it, we will take it! My pick in this category will be the hottest phone out there right now- Apple iPhone 6, preferred color- GOLD! <3
Shoes: You know that quote by Marilyn Monroe that says "Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world"? Well, who am I to argue with a fashion icon-I agree %150! I have had my eye on the Valentino Rockstud Pumps for the longest and the beautiful thing is they come in a wide variety of colors and finishes. It is really hard to pick one color but these embellished ones will be perfect for a really special lady :) Again you could find these shoes at the shops mentioned earlier.
So that's it from me- Ladies, feel free to casually leave this tab open on your lovers or friends' iPad :)
I will do a post on Friday for gift ideas for men, who are typically more difficult to buy stuff for -_-, so keep your eyes peeled.
Peace and Love,
