We all have that special lady in our lives, be it our sisters, our mummy’s, our mother in law or a surrogate for one or all of those things. And, at this time of year it can be SO hard to get them what they deserve! I know for me personally I wish I could pay off my mum’s mortgage or by my sister a house for Christmas because I love ’em so much… but with my budget, they’ll be getting some Hotel Chocolat treats and a bath bomb from Lush (hate being a pauper!). So, in light of this, I thought I’d share with you some ideas for a Gift Guide for HER that she’ll not only love but wont break the bank! Some amazing DVD’s and films that will keep your laughs and love with that special girlie in your life continue!
Seen this one? Read the book? Cried a million tears? Laughed and then cried?
Yep, Me Before You was a huge movie hit this year, following the blast of the book, that had me and all my sisters weeping into our Kleenex and laughing at each other’s red noses!
This lovable and heart wrenching film is perfect for that Sunday afternoon after the Christmas and New Year bubble has burst and you’re stuck in the midst of poverty and darkness – wow that got dark real quick sorry!
This gorgeously made film is so close to the book and so easy to fall in love with that it’ll have you transported to that snowy town in rural England with a gorgeous cast and an even more beautiful setting.
I watched this film alone (lol) a couple weeks ago as I was really feeling some chick flick loving and a laugh! Sometimes, life gets all too serious and stressful and we need a bit of light hearted love and laughter!
And, How To Be Single is exactly that!
With a hilarious cast – Rebel Wilson is my favourite actress right now (Pitch Perfect is everything), this film is perfect for that weird little interlude between Christmas and New Year!
It is so light hearted and funny and although it has some growing pains and sad connotations of relationships gone awry and a little pear shaped it is so light hearted and down right funny that it’ll be a treat for any girl in your life!
I was told to watch this film recently by a friend who spotted some similarities in the characters with the relationship I have with someone close. And, I was not disappointed, this film not only has one hell of a cast (Robert DeNero you hot dad you!) but it also is so brilliant and light-hearted. Me being the little ball of emotion I am I had a little tear at one point too!
I LOVE this film and when I watched it before I was texting my mum the WHOLE time telling her little jokes and telling her what a legend she is! This film made me laugh inwardly about my little mum and my sisters and reminded me of the sanctity of family!
The Heart of the Sea. What an epic. This film is PERFECT for the day after Boxing Day when your mum actually gets to sit down and not worry about cleaning the house. The perfect day for eating those left over nibbles and cracking open the Twiglets tub. The day when you wash your face, apply no make up and wear those brand new Bambi fluffy pyjamas you got for Christmas from your Nan!
This film is an epic, it’s a tale that will have you pausing it to get some more pop corn and not wanting to miss a second! It features Chris Hemswoth – what a hunk! and its story is so enthralling and twisting and turning that you wont want to miss a thing!
One for your sisters and your mama!
My mum bought this DVD for me when I was a teenager, the DVD played music and I cherished it and watched it everyday over the Christmas period with her! It was one of those times in my teenage life that we really got each other, we are SO similar so clashed when I was an angsty teen, and this film will always represent to me the love we had and laughs we shared that year singing those silly songs!
This is such a classic film and such a brilliant no-brainer in my Gift Guide For HER! One of those timeless classics you can put on time and time again and you know everyone will flock in from their bedrooms to come and see Dorothy on her adventure. The songs have always been and will always be a classic!
So, a little different sort of Gift Guide for HER but one I know she’ll LOVE!
Are you gonna get any of these for those amazing girls in your life?
Merry Christmas to you and those amazing women who support and boost you!
And thank you to mine!
