What to buy the woman who has everything? Now there's a question. Something useful? Well it's one direction, but unlikely to be the route to her heart. What's better is a gift that she can treasure long after the fizz of Christmas excitement has quietened. 

What every woman wants is a true object of desire. That is why we've put together our fantasy gift box  - from magic slippers to goddess gems. There will be no thunderclouds this Christmas morning with these presents under the tree.
