Holiday Season. Gift Guide.

Hello Readers,

Here are some of my top gifts to give and receive for Christmas. Comment below your suggestions or ideas.

Top Gifts


One of the classic & practical christmas gifts to give or receive is a watch. It’s likely at the height of it’s popularity, not a watch itself but the minimalist designs which mix different coloured leather and coloured metal detailing. Ranging from $100 to $250 it’s not exactly a cheap stocking stuffer but a present to go halves or thirds on for a sibling or best friend.

Home Goods

I love giving home goods in the sense that there are presents at almost any price and you can’t really get it wrong (unless you gift your friends an ugly chartreuse rug or a life size picture of a whale – unless that’s their thing). The resurgence of cool wired baskets, marble inspired vases and fairy lights means there’s something for everyone and I mean who doesn’t love the gift of interior decorating!

Brands To Check Out: H&M home ~ Kmart ~ Ikea ~ Typo ~ Mr & Mrs. Jones

Ermagersh. Give me floaties and inflatable things in every colour and fruit and animal imaginable. I’ve seen taco floaties, pineapples, toucans and watermelons. Perfect for pool parties and the beach I love that this is a gift for those who haven’t grown up or don’t really want to. You can’t go wrong (unless you have friends who hate water and then maybe see above suggestions) and I know no-one who doesn’t want to collect every single colour of swan floatie imaginable.

Brands To Check Out: Sunnylife ~ Kmart ~ Target ~ Big W ~ Pool Shops
