10 perfect gifts for females (even the Mother in Law!)
We've donned our crimbo jumpers, the advent calendars are open, and the halls are well and truly decked (i.e. our office is decorated with pretty sparkly things). It is now acceptable to be “Christmassy” and to immerse ourselves in the wonderful world of elves and red-nosed reindeers.
But amongst these magical Christmas creatures are the ever-present and much-feared dragons; more commonly referred to as The Mothers in Law. And at this time of year a terrible choice of present can turn even the most welcoming of in-laws into the proverbial fire-breather we all dread. Well, be rest assured that Red Candy have prepared your very own Christmas Miracle - our Top 10 Christmas Gifts For Her are guaranteed to get the MIL off your back (for an hour or two anyway!)
And we know that all females can sometimes be tricky to buy for - if you are struggling for a pressie for your mum, grandma, aunt, daughter or female friends then look no further! Our gifts cater for all females – the domestic goddess, the tea addict, the animal lover, the photography fanatic, the bookworm, and, of course, the pal who enjoys the *odd* glass of wine.
