Looking for a really sweet gift for a girlfriend or that special woman in your life, but do not want to add any calories to her diet? Throw out the cupcakes and chocolates and try these gifts that may just be sweeter than candy.

1.     Petit Bon Bon Fragrances from Bond No.9 New York

They are gorgeous to look at and almost make you want to eat one! Bond No.9’s chic and sleek perfume spray vials are individually wrapped in their signature colourful foils and are about the nicest smelling things you’ve ever laid eyes on.

2.      Gold Collection Soap Gift Box from Pacifica

According to Brooke Harvey Taylor, founder of Pacifica, this is even better than a  box of chocolates, and I quite agree with her! Opening this gift box is as exciting as opening a box of chocolates. As you remove the silky white ribbon from the gold box, the explosion of colors is intense, followed by the fresh sweet smell of nature’s delightful ingredients.

3.      Natural Solid Perfumes from Pacifica

These solid perfumes from Pacifica are made from 100% natural coconut and soy wax blended with natural and essential oils. Available in 24 different fragrances in delicious sounding names like Bali Lime Papaya, Thai Lemongrass, Malibu Lemon Blossom, Indian Coconut Nectar and Egyptian Bergamot Rose, they are sweetly enticing!

4.      Crescent Row Fragrances  from Benefit

Don’t miss out on these sweet cocktails on a girls’ night out! Lovely top notes of watermelons and pears, lemons and coconuts, grapefruit and rhubarb go into these chic mixers from Benefit, together with figs, peony, freesia, violet leaves, vanilla and lots more wonderful scents.

Can’t decide between an Appletini, a Pina Colada or a Strawberry Margarita? Never mind – try Eva, Rita or Carmella instead! Each shaker bottle comes in its own elaborately designed box which opens up to reveal the interior of a cute London apartment. How cool is that?
