So it’s that time of year again and to be honest one of my favourite parts of Christmas is buying gifts. I have two sisters and so my Christmas shopping always has a very feminine feel. But sometimes it’s hard to get something that little bit different, that’s why this year I took to the shops to track down what I think are some of the best Christmas gifts for girls. I had trouble whittling it down to just five but I hope you enjoy my finds.
