His and Hers Christmas Gift Idea | Fragrance Direct Gift Sets

Fragrance Direct Dolce and Gabbana The One Gift Set for Christmas Mens and Ladies

If you're stuck for ideas on what to buy a couple this Christmas then I would say that a his and hers fragrance gift set is a pretty safe bet.  In fact, I find that perfume or aftershave gift sets are great for anyone at Christmas time as they're something everyone will use and enjoy.  I often give perfumes as Christmas gifts and they always seem to be very well received.  Perhaps its because they seem like a real indulgent treat.

It might take a bit of careful digging to find out what scent they like to wear, which could even be a case of saying 'ooh you smell nice, what are you wearing?' when you see them, but once you know that, you're good to go.  For more tips on finding out what products to buy your loved ones, check out my post here.

The great thing about buying perfume at Christmas is that the vast majority of brands release their scents as gift sets so not only can you buy the perfume but you can also get co-ordinating products all packaged up beautifully for more or less the same price as buying the stand alone bottle of scent.  This means that you're going to get far more for your money and if you shop at Fragrance Direct, you'll also be able to save even more money as many of their scents and gift sets cost less than if you were to buy them from many highstreet stores.

The Fragrance Direct site is really helpful when you're looking for gifts or a treat to buy yourself as not only do they have all of their products well listed in categories by, for example, brand so that you can find the scent you want easily, they also have plenty of suggestions under headings such as 'Top 40 Gift Sets' and 'Stocking Fillers Under £10' so that you can easily find a product to suit your needs and be inspired by others.

I also like that they give you suggestions of other products that you might like based on the fragrance you've selected.  When looking at a stand alone fragrance, they also show you items that you may like that compliment the product you're looking at.  This could be the same bottle of perfume but in a larger or smaller size along with the cost so that you can see the difference in price and the amount you'd be saving, as well as complimentry products such as body lotion, shower gel and deodorant that are in the same scent as the perfume you're looking at.  This is great for if you're looking to layer a fragrance which is something that I'm a big fan of as it prolongs the scent and wear time of your perfume.  You can read more about this in my guide to fragrance layering here.

Whenever I am ever buying fragrance as a gift then I always look to see if there is a gift set available first of all as I do think that they're a much better deal than buying the perfume on its own and aesthetically, they're always packaged beautifully which makes for a far more pleasing gift.

One Christmas gift idea that I love is giving gift sets of complimentry fragrances to a couple.  Many brands do a fragrance for him and for her and I think when given together, they make a really thoughtful gift.  An example of this would be the Dolce and Gabbana The One fragrance of which there is a ladies scent and a mens.  Of course each respective party would need to like the fragrance but if there aren't two that go together they both like, then giving any fragrance gift set from different brands would still be the perfect Christmas gift.  Everyone likes to smell amazing and everyone that I know at least would appreciate a really beautifully packaged fragrance gift set.

The ladies Dolce and Gabbana The One perfume is a scent that I have worn for years and whenever I smell it, it brings back so many fabulous memories of evenings out with my friends and loved ones.  It is a very glamorous scent with floriental notes of Bergamot, Peach, Mandarin Orange and Lychee as the top notes, Lily, Plum, Jasmine and Lily of the Valley heart notes and Vanilla, Sandalwood, Amber and, my favourite note, Musk as a base.  It smells beautiful.  There's something distinctly sexy yet elegant about it that I just love.

This scent is available in three differently sized gift sets to suit your budget.  One that has a 30ml bottle of perfume and a 50ml body lotion, another with a 50ml perfume and a 100ml body lotion and finally, the most indulgent one that has a 75ml bottle of perfume, a 100ml shower gel and a 100ml body lotion which is the gift set that I have featured in this post.  The fragrance is an eau de parfum spray so it is strong and long lasting on the skin so you only need to use a small amount to be able to get a really beautiful effect.

The mens version of this fragrance is equally as stunning.  I first bought the Dolce and Gabbana The One For Men scent as a gift for my dad when I came back from a trip abroad and he fell in love with it, as did my husband who also immediately wanted a bottle.  Like with the D&G The One for women, the male scent is very much a fragrance that transcends generations as I think that it could be enjoyed by men and women in their twenties just as much as those in their fifties.

Dolce and Gabbana The One For Men has a really delicious sexy scent.  With top notes of Grapefruit, Basil and Coriander, middle notes of Cardamom, Orange Blossom and Ginger and a base of Amber Cedar and Tobacco, it is unlike any scent that I have smelled before and it really stands out against many other fragrances.  It is one of those scents that people seem to be immediately drawn to as it attracts many compliments and questions as to what you're wearing when you have it on.

Similar to the ladies version, The One For Men also comes in a couple of different sized gift sets that vary in price to suit your budget.  The huge 100ml bottle gift set, which I think is very reasonably priced for such a big bottle, also contains contains a 75ml Aftershave Balm and a 50ml Shower Gel whereas the 50ml fragrance bottle gift set just has a 75ml Aftershave Balm in it.

Both of these scents are very sophisticated and stylish fragrances that I think would suit many ladies and gentlemen who also embody those qualities.  They're beautifully packaged with the ladies gift set in gold and the mens in silver and I think they'd make the most beautiful gifts this Christmas.

The great thing about Fragrance Direct is that they offer a quick and well packaged delivery service so you know that your item will arrive to you in good time and in pristine condition, ready for you to wrap up the gift and give it to your loved one.  That is, if you don't use their affordable gift wrapping service of course.  For a low fee, they will wrap your gift for you with paper of your choice from their selection, a ribbon and a gift tag.  This takes the hassle out of gift giving completely so if you're someone who hates wrapping or simply doesn't have the time to wrap up lots of presents at Christmas, then I think you will really benefit from this service.

There's always so much to do at Christmas time and the last thing that you need is to be tied to your house, waiting for a parcel to arrive.  With Fragrance Direct, you needn't worry about missing the post as you can have their items delivered to a local store with their CollectPlus service so you can pick your parcel up at a time that is convenient for you.

If you're looking for a Christmas gift, I'd highly recommend checking out the Fragrance Direct website.  I've been shopping on there for years and have always loved their service and everything that I've bought from them in the past.  They even offer makeup, skincare, bath and body, haircare and sun tan products too so there really is something for everyone on their site.
