Can you believe it’s December?! Christmas will be here before you know it and instead of creating a whole bunch of different gift guides I’ve decided to just compile an ultimate gift guide list for you with a little bit of everything, where hopefully you’ll find presents to suit everyone!
The makeup maven
Makeup presents are possibly my favourites, mostly because so many brands come out with amazing limited edition sets that are impossibly beautiful and usually pretty good value.
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit is the ultimate beauty lovers gift this year. It’s a bit pricey at $117 but it is just so damn beautiful! I have the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette and the Hourglass powders are just so beautiful and they have totally perfected the glowy powders (who knew that was a thing?!).
The NARS Steven Klein One Shocking Moment Cheek Studio Palette is another one for the cheeks that is just beautiful. NARS products are just amazing and this is a great option for anyone who loves NARS, loves blush, or just loves limited edition products. It’s slightly less expensive at $100 but it’s great value for how many products you get!
The Sephora Collection Gloss Wand* is a lovely collection of 6 glosses, each with its own applicator, and at only $19 would be a great stocking stuffer for a lip product lover. I have actually bought this one for my niece for Christmas and I know she’ll love it!
This Benefit Getting Cheeky mini set is another great stocking filler option (at $29) and would be great for anyone who travels a lot because the mini size of these make them great for travel or handbags. The Benefit cheek products are amazing and are really easy to use, and this collection is a great set.
The stationery addict
Another one of my favourite present categories! There is nothing better than a fresh notebook or planner to start the year off so stationery always makes a great Christmas present.
This Thankful journal gift set is beautiful and it’s a great present for someone who wants to get into gratitude/thankfulness journalling. Or this beautiful leather bound notebook is perfect to start the year off with a blank notebook and the perforated leather is a really nice detail.
This is another gorgeous leather bound notebook which is actually refillable! They look so beautiful and like a really classic leather notebook. This one is a good option for either men or women.
The wine connoisseur
I’m a bit in love with Vinomofo*. I was told about it by friends this year (while I was pregnant, so cruel!) and I was keen to try it out for myself once I can start drinking a little bit more. I think I still have a little way to go on that front (I have to time it pretty carefully), but I highly recommend their wine deals and their wine clubs. They have amazing quality wines and the prices are fantastic for the quality you get. My friends and I have been introduced to some really interesting wines (and amazing tasting so I hear!) through Vinomofo.
I think ‘The Cube‘* is a great option if you want to gift someone a wine club type subscription. It’s 9 wines, one delivered every 9 weeks and it works out to only be $11 a bottle which I think is pretty awesome!
The home decor lover
I love this ‘things’ box, it would be great for storage all over the home and it’s so beautiful with its understated wood, white and gold tones. This ‘Made with Love’ canister from the Lisa T for Target collection is another gorgeous storage container and the blush and gold colouring is still very on trend. This vase is so beautiful and would suit the decor of just about any home so it’s a safe option!
The beach babe
This gorgeous round towel* is a great option for the beach lover in your life. It’s so cute and they will get lots of use out of it! The summery kaftan* is a great beach cover up and the colours are so beautiful!
The fitness fanatic
This water bottle* is perfect for any kind of workout. The reversible yoga mat is a good option for the aspiring yogi. The tote bag is perfect for holding all your workout gear, and even has straps on the front to hold your yoga mat.
The candle collector
This Manhattan luxury travel pack* from Glasshouse is a great little candle kit, and Manhattan is my favourite Glasshouse scent! It’s a great gift pack for someone who loves fragrance without the gamble of picking a perfume for someone (always risky!).
This Christmas collection mini candle trio* is a great Christmassy option from Glasshouse and you get three delicious smelling little candles! If you wanted, you could buy the set and break them up as individual gifts (perfect for Secret Santa presents!).
If your giftee prefers soy based candles, this Illuminate Soy-based Candle in Tin Coconut & Vanilla Fragrance* is a good option, and who doesn’t love the smell of vanilla and coconut?!
The friend with a social conscience
The gift of a gift to the less fortunate is a great idea for friends who think Christmas is over-commercialised, friends with a social conscience or those people you just don’t know what to buy them because they already have everything. It’s really lovely to spend some of your Christmas dollars going towards something for those less fortunate than us here in Australia. Places like Oxfam have some great gift options at a range of price points like a goat, literacy classes or a well (there are lots more gift options on their website as well!).
