Christmas Giving

Given that Christmas is approaching, I was browsing the Net and came across the UK’s The Independent's 50 Best Christmas Gifts for Women – and as I checked these out, my thoughts turned to London, my favorite city – and so, picked these three as excellent choices:

Chelsea Flower Show Tickets: This is just the ticket for any female of any age (in fact, bulk buy them for all the females in your life) and, though it might be five months away, tickets can get scarce closer to the event.

0844 209 0381; www.keithprowse.com - from £18.50 pp
.
A Lost in Beauty Makeover: For a fresh pair of eyes to look at your makeup and hair, there are few things better than a makeover by Georgie Hamed from Primrose Hill's Lost in Beauty salon. Even if your girlfriend doesn't live in London, buy a voucher for the next time she visits and she'll love you for it. Hamed knows all the tricks of the trade and applies them in an inviting, boudoir-like space. You can also take along your own cosmetics for her to work with, rather than forking out on expensive new products.

020-7586 4411; www.lostinbeauty.com - from £50 for 30 minutes

Tote-to-Toe Package: Stuck on what to get the girl who has everything? Treat her to the Metropolitan Hotel's Tote-to-Toe shopping experience package. This includes overnight B&B accommodation, a bottle of pink champagne, a £50 voucher for fashion emporiums Harvey Nichols and the Dover Street Market and much more. A fancy hotel, retail therapy and champagne. You can't go wrong.

020-7447 1000; www.metropolitan.co.uk - £350

Wink-wink. Did you get my hint? What did you get me for Christmas?
