It’s almost Christmas Time! Are you running out of time for your Christmas shopping? Or are you looking for the latest bits and bobs to complete it? You’re in the right place! Have a look at these quick wins when it comes to gifts for 7 personality types!

For your special one

Mini perfume collection and a bottle of Prosecco.

Christmas Gift Ideas for 7 Personality Types for the Last-Minute Shopper NotAGirlyGal Mini Perfume Collection

I gifted this to my mum last year, just because she had a similar set when I was little, so it had a deep meaning for us. I think a set of luxury perfumes is a nice addition for the person who already has everything in terms of beauty. You can find this set in airports or online, but I would get it from the airport as it’s faster. Additionally, you can add a bottle of Prosecco or chocolate! 

For the fashion lover

Bags are always so loved by fashionistas – you would make them so happy with a bag for sure! You would have to do a bit of research around the type of bags she likes. If you don’t remember exactly, have a look on her social media and start by observing patterns in her bag choices. Does she like small bags or business bags where she can fit her whole life in?

It would be an added bonus to purchase from her favourite brand, just ensure she doesn’t have it already before you place your order. Find a small bag option here and a medium / large one here.

For the shoes addict

I have a friend obsessed with shoes. If you have one as well, then the shoes option is such an excellent idea! You’ll go down in gift history with this one. Similar to the bag idea, ensure you know the type of shoes and brand she prefers. I’ll give you a pair of high heeled shoes, but also a low heel option.

For the gourmet 

Classy taste? For the gourmets in our life, going for food would be an absolute winner. A pleasure to the buds would be a hamper made all by yourself tailored to his / her favourite treats. In mine, I included a Hollandaise cheese platter, a special bottle of wine, caviar and olive spread. I digged out the internet for some options that you can find below.Christmas Gift Ideas for 7 Personality Types for the Last-Minute Shopper NotAGirlyGal Cheese

For the coziness lover 

Does this person enjoy creating a cosy atmosphere every time you visit her? Does she enjoy lounging and indulging? Then, create her the perfect scenario! Go for a Christmas onesie, a pair of fluffy slippers, a beauty soap, a beauty mask and a box of special chocolate. Look for a special candle that she can have lit while she’s relaxing with her beauty mask on! I included links to what I can find online for my chosen items.

For the Travel Lover

Is your friend always going away and you barely see her? Then clearly, she loves her travels. For the travel lover go for something like a travel pillow or a passport holder set! You might think she already has these, but it’s always good for her to diversify. Don’t we all think we don’t have enough clothes or shoes? It goes the same way with these things too!

For the beauty addicts

Hello beauty lovers, I salute your beauty rituals. Beauty addicts always love to try new products and always welcome more products to their collection which makes it super easy for us when we’re looking for their perfect gift. Are you a last-minute shopper? Think about offering them a full ritual, from start to finish. Start with make-up removers that your friend will use to ‘take the day off’. Next, consider adding a Lush bath bomb and a face mask to make sure they’ll fully relax. For the wow factor, add in a bottle of Champagne that she can enjoy during her bath. I personally love to drink Champagne in the bath tub, so your friend might as well!

For the book warm

The best Christmas gift you can make a book lover is the book Feel the Fear… but do it anyway by Susan Jeffers. This book will change their lives and encourage their positive thinking, empowering them to become powerful. It clearly had an impact on how I see life and made me moan less and focus on enjoying life instead. We all have two options: to complain or to just go with it & deal with it. The subconscious mind will always listen to the conscious mind, so when you complain or think you’re not good enough, your subconscious mind will believe it. Read this book and discuss it with your friends because it’s truly inspiring. You can gift this book to anyone you’d like to encourage to grow.

Wood scents and heavy bottles, lids that click when you close the container and a scent that persists throughout the day and makes me feel in control of everything. These are a few of my favourite things! Can you relate? As you already know, I have a true passion for perfumes, especially for the heavy, winter ones. You know it, today we’ll look into finding the right perfume for you to empower and support you in achieving your goals!not a girly gal x notino find your signature scent 2019 tom ford.jpg

Kenzo L’Elephant

We have to start by addressing the elephant in the room. Quite literally. This perfume won’t let you go away unnoticed. It’s very strong and spicy, being the best at leaving a scent trace.

It’s such a poetic scent and one of my favourites since two years now. You can actually notice how much I’ve used out of the 100ml bottle, not really pretty for the picture, but you can genuinely see how much I love L’Elephant. Be really careful when you apply it though – for this, a small dose really goes a long way. It’s one of the strongest and most empowering scents I came across so far (trust me, I have owned a lot of different scents and perfumes are quite a hot topic in my family). If you love spicy and empowering scents, then L’Elephant is made for you. I feel it’s also underrated and not too many people own it, but that’s good news, right? I was pleasantly surprised to see it on Notino at such a great price – the airport price I got used to is definitely higher.

Tom Ford Black Orchid

This was waiting on my wish list since one year now and that’s a lot to wait for a perfume as unique as this. Its woody and spicy scent make me think of a strong woman thriving in her career. A woman entrepreneur who is leading her team and own path. It makes me think of independence and freedom, like you can achieve everything you put your mind to while wearing this perfume. This will be my signature for 2019, one of the many reasons why I should feel confident in my powers and head to success with no fear. Black Orchid persists for good eight to ten hours by only applying 4 puffs. I like to apply it on the back of my neck as well for a beautiful trace. My winter collection wouldn’t be the complete without Black Orchid and I heavily rely on it to make me feel as empowered as ever. Remember, it’s a New Year, we all can have a refresh – why not explore a new scent?

Dolce & Gabbana The One

This perfume has a rose scent to it, but it’s not sweet. It takes me back to my Sicilian birthday break in the summer – wind, salt and freedom. That’s how I would describe this beauty. This scent is clearly empowering and fit for an elegant lady. You can certainly wear this in winter, especially when you’re attending different festive events. It’s pleasant for people around you to feel – they’ll feel great around you and you’ll shine! I love to have it my collection as I love to alternate strong scents with a more ‘fragile’ scent. It’s one of my must haves! Give this beautiful Italian scent a try. It’s The One!

Hello girls,

When the most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner, I like to make sure I’m getting ready for holidays in time because remembering even the most minor details, will count towards making the holiday really magical.

First week of December

Just before the first week of December, I like to make a plan of the things I need or stuff I have to do for Christmas. I sat down, drinking a cinnamon latte while listening to Christmas jazzy music and created what I like to call ‘My way to a magical Christmas’

1.Make a gift list

Put down all your dearest people – all the ones you will like to make feel special this Christmas. Christmas is all about sharing, so even if you just share a moment and a smile with that person around Christmas, is just as beautiful as sharing a wow Christmas gift.

2. Look for any needed Christmas decorations

You can never have enough Christmas decorations, just like you could never have too many shoes. But now, I’m referring to those pieces that might be missing from your collection or things you always wanted to hang around your home. For me, on top of my list this year, there are some really pretty interior lights that I will use for decorating my staircase.

3. Order your gifts in time

This year, I’ve already started ordering and buying Christmas gifts. I think it’s the earliest I’ve ever been, but so far it feels so good to be able to take my time with the shopping. So, I believe the quickest you could start gathering the items, the better. It will save you moments of buying something, just because it’s the best option available at the time.

4. Decide on the two outfits you need for Christmas and New Year’s Eve

It’s really important to plan your outfits ahead. You know how we always see everything we want in a store and then 3 weeks later the collection turns out to be replaced? It happened to me way too many times not to wish to start early with planning them this year. Just get online, browse some items and start ordering them or go on a quick shopping spree to get the chance to try some on. You will definitely avoid the crisis of ‘I have nothing to wear for next week!’ or even worse ‘I don’t know what I’m going to wear tomorrow’

5. Start getting into the Christmas Spirit

Need ideas on how to get into the festive spirit? Start by visiting Christmas markets and listening to carols. One key thing for me, is to light up cinnamon scented candles around the house, so I create a real Christmasy atmosphere. Then, I love to get cozy in my favourite blanket while drinking hot chocolate and watching my all time favourite Christmas movies.

6. Advent calendars

This year, besides the chocolate advent calendars that I love, I want to get a beauty advent calendar. I got my eyes on the Benefit one, but I need to explore it a bit more until it’s a certain ‘yes’.

7. Don’t forget about the Christmas cards

I love sending cards – the personal touch they can add is simply beautiful. Don’t forget to send Christmas cards in time, so they will arrive just before Christmas. No time to blame the Royal Mail.

8. Optional Book Discovery

Last Christmas holiday, I read The Edge of Never by J. A. Redmerski – the passion for music, life and good vibes made me love it. So, thank you my dear Augusta for sharing this gem with me. I love the feeling of ‘living’ in the book – that’s why I am using my time now to research a similar book that I could read over Christmas. This week, I stopped in a bookshop in Waterloo station to have a look. I walked away with two books to read just before Christmas, as they are a bit more practical than the novels I am planning to read. I am currently into #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso and I feel super inspired by her journey so far. Hello to all #girlbosses out there.
