With Christmas fast approaching, I thought it would be helpful to share some of my gift ideas for your family and friends. Luckily I've finished my Christmas shopping but for those who do not have too much time I thought I'd create a little gift guide that is super easy, doesn't require too much time or effort and is something your loved one with LOVE!
Let's start with The Body Shop, they have some incredible gift packs that are pre-wrapped for boys and girls of any age. For a friend, sister or mother I'd recommend The Mango Bliss Box. It comes with a shower gel, body butter, body scrub, soap and bath lily. This comes in different flavours such as Strawberry, Coconut & more. It looks absolutely gorgeous! And no girl (or boy) can have enough stuff from The Body Shop.
Now for the men in your life. brothers, dads, boyfriends etc. The Body Shop does some great shaving gift packs. I don't know much about shaving but I feel like this is something all guys need. It smells good too!
kikki.K Also has some very cute gift packs for those who love putting pen to paper. My favourite is this one for the DIY lover. It comes with the Paper Lover's Book which includes stickers, bunting, wrapping paper & more. It also includes two different tape styles and an adorable pen! I love the style of this set and would appreciate getting this as a gift.
Wow! Lush has soooo many beautiful gift packs. The hardest thing about buying a Lush gift pack is choosing which one! I guess it depends what the person you're buying for likes but my favourite is the Christmas Candy Gift Box. First of all the packaging is right up my alley, so pretty and colourful. Secondly the contents is amazing! It comes with Rock Star Soap, Snow Fairy Shower Gel, Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb, Candy Mountain Bubble Bar. I'm impressed.
How adorable are these PJ's from Peter Alexander!? I asked for these for Christmas as I usually just wear an old T-Shirt and some PJ bottoms from Cotton-On Body... There's nothing really wrong with that because its comfy, but I wanted to have something cuter! I feel like every girl loves a pair of cute PJ's from Peter Alexander.
For those who love their music (AKA everyone) a new speaker for the house or room is a very practical and fun idea. I found this one which I think is the perfect speaker! All you have to do is put your phone on top of the speaker and press play & music fills the room... No cables needed! I know this is something my friends or siblings would love.
This three pack of Dusk candles looks and smells beautiful! My go-to gift for someone who is hard to buy for is candles! Everyone loves candles.
If you're struggling for ideas for someone who is very difficult to buy for try looking at TV series sets... Everyone watches TV and if you know they love a certain show or have been wanting to watch a certain show then this could be the perfect give idea.
Heres my suggestion for TV Shows:
Game of Thrones: https://www.bigw.com.au/product/game-of-thrones-season-1-4/p/WCC100000000175605/
Next is this new Jamie Oliver recipe book, I was going to buy this for someone but turns out they already had it! I feel like anyone who likes to cook loves Jamie Oliver, so how about you buy them his new cook book: Everyday Super Food.
The new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette is a must-have for all makeup lovers right now. It's such a gorgeous palette and is very popular with many great reviews. It is on the pricey side so if this isn't in your price range, try look at Mecca Maxima or Sephora stores for something else a little cheaper. Such as a lipstick from NARS or eyeshadow palette from Too Faced!
And that is all the gifts I can think of right now! I hope this helps in the lead up to Christmas and good luck with your Christmas shopping. I'm sure whatever you buy; your loved one will love. In the end it's always the thought that counts the most.
Side note: I don't believe Christmas is all about the presents, for me it is more about bringing family & friends together and enjoying each others company. So I really wish for everyone to have a magical day and remember to appreciate everything you have because others don't have it that lucky.
I recently donated a bunch of clothes and toys to a charity called Lifeline, remember this holiday season is all about giving back, if you have anything to give don't hesitate! I'm sure someone will really appreciate it.
Thankyou for reading & MERRY CHRISTMAS!
