Last week we published our 'Gifts for Him' guide ready for Christmas, so we thought it was only right to follow up with a 'Gifts for Her' guide to even out the score! We know how hard it can be to think of unusual gifts and quirky stocking fillers, so this guide is intended to give you a helping hand with your gift-giving efforts this year.
Canar Money Bank
These Canar Bankers
are both practical and cute, with 4 unique ranges and 4 styles to choose from in each of them! These little ducks can help you to keep all of your loose change in order, with easy access any time you need to grab a few bob!
1-Up Cup Cake Mould Set
These quirky cake moulds
are ideal for girls who love gaming and baking, or those who just love to make cool, unusual kitchen creations! Once the batter has baked and risen, their cakes should resemble the adorable Mario mushrooms; with any luck they'll let you share the delicious end product too!
Turbulence Wine Glasses
Sometimes, it can be a lot harder than you would think to treat the wine lover in your life. A bottle of their favourite tipple can seem a bit too obvious and predictable, while a glass set can be a practical but bland choice. The Turbulence range is an attractive and innovative solution to this problem, which provides a winning combination of aesthetic beauty and taste-improving design. Thanks to the unique swirled pattern in the crystal, these glasses provide a truly sensual experience, improving the taste and aroma of any wine.
Family Time Photo Clock
This modern and unusual clock
would make a great gift for the family matriarch, who loves to adorn their home with photographs of their nearest and dearest! For added impact, fill the frames with a collection of photographs before gifting it, so that the full impact can be truly appreciated from the moment it's opened.
iPhone Clutch Bag Case
These iPhone Clutch Bag
s are an ideal way to turn your iPhone 5 or 5S into a glamorous accessory, prefect for nights when your travelling light! It can be hard work attempting to fit your phone into your clutch bag at times, but these are specifically designed to mould to the shape of your phone. The handy gold strap makes it easy to hang onto, while the pockets give you space to keep your cash and cards on hand for when you need them!
If you fancy any of the items on this list, be sure to send some cheeky hints to your loved ones on Facebook and Twitter. For more awesome gifts and gadgets, take a look at the gift ideas

The new Star Wars Battlefront game was released in Europe today, which made us even more excited for the release of the new film next month! Here are ten reasons why we're reeeeaaaally looking forward to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
1. It's Been 10 Whole Years Since the Last Instalment
Revenge of the Sith
came out way back in 2005, which means that the latest instalment of our favourite franchise is long overdue! Plus, we get to see brand new material as opposed to a back story, making room for brand new characters in our sci-fi loving hearts!
2. Han and Chewie are Back!
This awesome duo will be back in action in this film, along with many of the other characters from the original trilogy. Princess Leia actress Carrie Fisher also appears in the trailer for the film, although her brother Luke was apparently absent. Don't worry though, Mark Hamill appears on the cast list, which means that we should be seeing more of our favourite Jedi very soon!
3. Return to Practical Effects
Many people had problems with the over-use of computer generated effects
in the prequel series, but it looks like the newest film will mark something of a return to the much-loved practical effects of the first films. Although it's sure to contain some modern, digital alterations in addition to these effects, the combination of the two if done right, could make for a highly effective end product.
4. The New Director is a Lifelong Fan
While it would be ridiculous to disregard what George Lucas has achieved with his creation over the years, it was clear that the franchise needed a fresh injection of talent to get it back on its feet again. J.J Abrams will not only bring a new approach to the beloved series, but will also ensure that it's treated with great care, thanks to the fact that he is a lifelong fan off the movies himself!
5. Expanding the Star Wars Universe
As I mentioned in point 1, it's been a long time since we've seen new characters and locations, but the overall reboot will also contain spin-off films which tell untold stories of the Star Wars universe. This means that the new film will be getting us in the mood for a whole host of new Star Wars stories! The first of these films will be Rouge One: A Star Wars Story, and will star Hannibal and Casino Royale star Mads Mikkelsen!
6. John Williams' Score
The composer is back on board to give us more of the iconic Star Wars music that we all know and love!
7. The new Lightsaber
While the new, mysterious crossguard lighsaber has caused some controversy
amongst fans since the trailer was released, we honestly can't wait to see it in action!
8. Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma
As avid Thrones fans, we're super excited to see the Brienne of Tarth actress in a new and wildly different role. Since pictures were first released of her wearing the silver Captain Phasma suit, we've been wondering what role this new antagonist will have to play in the Star Wars story.
9. Cute Robots
R2-D2 and C-3PO are two of the most iconic and well loved characters of the franchise, so it only seemed right to add a brand new addition to the droid family in the newest film! The best part about loveable new robot BB-8, is that it is actually real! The technology was shown off at the Star Wars Celebration
, where JJ Abrams invited the droid on stage
to the amazement of the audience.
10. The Mystery of a New Plot
The final reason we're so excited for the new film, is simply due to the fact that we know so little about it! Although the names of many new and returning characters have been released, along with several trailers
, we know virtually nothing about the new plot (a rare thing in cinema these days). Unless you've been trawling fan sites for info, most of the new content should be a (hopefully) pleasant surprise for all of us!
