It’s that time of the year again that comes around so fast, it makes you think where exactly did 2015 go? Maybe you were caught off guard by the silly season and are still rushing to do that last minute Christmas shopping or you simply consider yourself prepared, aside from the ‘odd’ couple of gifts you need for that difficult person. Well, you can cast your fears aside as I have compiled a gift guide of my favourite items to give during the Christmas season, all ranging from budget friendly and different types of gifts for different personalities, whether your buying for your BFF, sister, Mum or just a female, this guide should help you!
Gifts For Her
Apple MacBook Air/Apple IPhone 6/Sportsgirl Headphones
Tech Savvy Chic
Okay so it’s quite likely that you aren’t going to be buying everybody on your Christmas list a MacBook Air or iPhone 6, am I right? However for those close few that you might be more likely to splurge on, then consider buying a gift voucher from the Apple Store. If you know they are the type of girl who cannot function without her assortment of Apple Mac products, then pop into the Apple store and buy a gift voucher. Create a bit of mystery around the gift voucher when wrapping it by pairing a set of rose gold headphones from Sportsgirl in the package.
Vogue Books sold at Dymocks
One of my all time go-to presents for that fashionista in your life, is to give the gift of a fashion illustration/photography book. The latest collection of Vogue On designers book range make fabulous gifts and with so many designers you can personalise the gift by choosing a designer the recipient knows.…trust me she will want to start her own collection the second she receives this book!
Asos BikinI/Novo Shoes
Who doesn’t like receiving a new bikini and sandals for Christmas? Or anytime of the year for that matter! With the start of what may seem like an endless Summer, a girl can never have too many bikinis. If you are unsure about choosing sizes, then I would suggest going straight to online stores such as Asos, which provide a very detailed description of product garment. Plus, with an interactive video it will definitely help you with the decision making process, as well as shopping with the ease of a very generous refund policy. I believe you could easily do this from the comfort of your home!
Lover of Luxe
Candle, Jar & trays from Antedote Living MT Hawthorn, Perth
I love purchasing home interiors and often find that they make great gifts for people. There is just something very personal about receiving a luxury item that results in the person that you’re giving it to, feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside. Opt for items that are neutral in colour as this way they will match most any decor. Just remember when choosing pieces to imagine a particular room in their house that might match well or in the event that you have never been to their place, then choose a candle to purchase, which is a no fail gift!
Kate Spade Iphone Cover/Mimco Clutch/Mecca Nailpolish/Forevernew Cuff
The glam girl loves sparkly clutches, romantic coloured nail polish and of course endless iPhone covers…am I right? If this sounds like your BFF then you know which stores you’re heading to for her Christmas present. Mimco will have you covered with a whole range of tasteful sparkly clutches that will leave you considering purchasing one for yourself! Visit Mecca for one of the best nail polish ranges I have ever seen, and jump online or visit David Jones to get your hands on a Kate Spade iPhone cover, because it’s just essential to have a different cover to match each outfit.
Well, I hope this gift guide has helped spark your imagination and provoked thoughts to assist you in finding the right gift for your friends and family. Remember to avoid panicking when heading into the shops and use this blog post to take along with you when shopping. I’m sure you will find everything you're looking for and maybe…..a little something for your self. Have a wonderful Christmas fashionista’s XO
