Christmas Gift Guide for Ladies - Manchester

Christmas Gift Guide for Ladies - Manchester

When a bath bomb or bottle of wine doesn’t seem to quite cut it, why not try this Christmas gift guide for the special lady in your life.

Jewellery by Jade Mellor

Jade Mellor is a Manchester-based jewellery sculptor, inspired by meteorites, asteroids, minerals and ancient treasures. Because each bespoke piece is completely unique, a product of a lengthy crafting process that spans days, weeks, months and even years, Mellor’s jewellery acts as the perfect potential for heartfelt gifting. The collection is alive with passion, skill and a magical cosmic energy, with handcrafted pieces such as the Nebula Knuckleduster ring, the Malachite Green Hewn bangle and the Verdigris statement ring. For slightly smaller budgets, the pyrite ‘Tutti’ studs developed alongside her studio experiments cost just £25, and by being encrusted with beautiful, sparkling pyrite dust, they are an affordable way of adding a little twinkle to the selection of packages at the base of your tree.

Spa Treatment at the Bali Health Lounge

Whilst whisking someone away to Indonesia may not be on the Christmas cards this year, you can channel the tropics a little closer to home with spa treatments at the Bali Health Lounge, which has launched a series of special festive packages for luxury gifts. The Christmas Indulgence package incorporates a stress-busting hot stone full body massage, a Payot prescriptive facial and a full manicure using Jessica and CND Vinylux nail polishes, all rounded off with a Christmas cream tea in the relaxation lounge, whilst its cheaper, tapered alternative – the Christmas Glamour package – comes in at a very affordable £69 to include the facial, manicure and cream tea. Whatever price bracket you want to stretch to, there’s no doubt that a reviving spa treatment makes for a lavish, thoughtful present, and with gift vouchers available for each festive package there will be something for you to pop under the tree.

Recycling and Customisation Class with School of Junk

With the Northern Quarter’s sustainable clothing store Junk Shop on board to provide some crafty skills for life, the recycling and customisation class is the gift that keeps on giving. The creative course promises to breathe new life into jaded wardrobes, taking tired and unloved garments and upcycling them into new pieces that may serve more of a purpose. Working on brand new Elna sewing machines, participants will be taught by Junk Shop designer Charlotte Keyworth, who will be on board to guide everyone through the particulars of upcycling, customisation, creative tailoring and alterations. By the end, everyone will be able to alter a dress to their own body shape, make bows and pockets, understand the basics and practicalities of sewing and come away with handbags and accessories made from previously forgotten materials. The course lasts one day and costs £60, and gift vouchers are also available.
