From grannies and nieces to mums and besties, Christmas shopping for the girls on the Christmas list was the challenge this week so we headed to Upper Main Street to choose our gift ideas for the ladies.

Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without new cosy pyjamas and slippers to curl up in and enjoy the relaxing moments of the season. These brushed cotton tartan PJs are £20 from Slenderella in Menarys and look great with the ballet pump style slippers £12 and a warm drink a cute Santa mug £5.

Keeping on a festive tartan theme, Excel Clothing has Vivienne Westwood bags and accessories in stock in a range of prints and colours. The cute tartan backpack caught our eye (£360) or maybe one of the smaller accessory bags in the range.

Of course, it’s not all about cosy nights in by the fire. There are parties to go to and socializing to happen. We love Wallis in Menarys for a bit of party sparkle as well as great everyday style for work and weekend wear.

Estee Lauder’s signature Christmas Gift set is always amazing value and a sell out so if this gift idea ticks your boxes then hurry as stocks are low. This year, when you buy two Estee Lauder Fragrances you can purchase the Make Up Artist Collection valued at £340 for just £58.
