There are bad surprises, like finding out someone ate the last of the office birthday cake or accidentally stepping in chewing gum on your way to dinner. Then, there are good surprises, like when someone catches you off-guard with a truly amazing gift. Whether you want to treat your wife/girlfriend/mum/grandma/sister to a surprise of the very best kind this Christmas, we’re here to help with 20 of the best gifts for her that your lucky lady will never see coming.


1. Shower Wine Holder

Whether she likes to sip a Chardy while she has a soak or wants to pre-game while she’s washing her hair, the Shower Wine Holder is a fun and surprisingly practical pressie. Made from a unique silicone compound that grips to shiny surfaces like glass, mirror or shower tiles, it leaves no residue and won’t lose its stick.
