The ultimate gift guide for the most awkward women in your life, whatever your budget

You can’t get your housemate yet another scented candle

Time to get the gift wrap out and brace your bank cards – Christmas is coming at us fast, and we’ll bet you’re in no way ready for it – and neither is your fast-depleting loan.

As if purchasing a mountain of presents isn’t stressful enough, there’s always a select few women in our lives who are practically near-on impossible to buy for. So, we put together this Christmas gift guide to help you sort out what to get for the most difficult-to-buy-for girls in your life for a tidy budget of £10, or maybe £20 if you can stretch to that. Thank you baby Jesus.

Oh well, treat her to these and you’ll have a new mate in no time:

Your best friend who has everything

She always gets you the best present and you really want to make her happy – but nothing feels worse than seeing her fake smile when she opens the gift you spent many stressful hours agonising over. You know her like a sister, so you know when she doesn’t love it. But you can relax – no risk of that awkward grimace with these treats:

Indi sequin clutch bag – £20

Layered sleek long pendant necklace – £15

Drop hoop earrings with Swarovski crystals – £17

Stemless prosecco glasses – £17.50
