Myself and 4 friends are meeting for a nice Christmas lunch the wk before and someone suggested a Secret Santa - oh joy! I'm not a massive fan of them but of course, I've drawn the fussy friend!
Any suggestions?

What sort of things does she have off her family for Christmas? Has she ever said she's had something new (chosen by herself) that could give you ideas?

A voucher for a perfume shop, and a handwritten note saying you'll take her out for coffee when she chooses as you didn't want to pick something specific out for her as perfume is so subjective?

Posh bath salts, nice candles and a bar of chocolate.
Make up vouchers.
If she's into cooking, a new cookbook and a kitchen gadget/posh foodie bits.
I've seen a really cosy oversized blanket/scarf type thing that you can get personalised with her initials.

You need to clarify 'fussy' non food, no alcohol, non tech, no hobbies only luxury brands etc.

White Company have a nightwear sale. Velour robe and cashmere ballet slippers have both been reduced to under 50.00

Something with a gift receipt so she can take it back if she doesn't like it (worth it if she's really that fussy).

What would you buy if she wasn't 'fussy'?

Jo Malone body cream

What does she like is she into?

No point getting something random.

I second Jo Malone.

I know that I would love to receive any of the following:
Jo Malone Bath Oils
a bottle each of lavender & verbena foaming bath
Personally, no skin or body lotions just pure, indulgent bubble baths which are too expensive for everyday use which make them an ideal gift.

Jo Malone Bathtime Collection link seems to have failed me!
