Hello my loves, I thought I better sneak this one in for all you last minute shoppers like me. I love finding beautiful little treasures to give that are affordable but still special. I really tried to spread out the price ranges on this one as well as the types of treasures. I hope you find some inspo for someone you love.
$29.99 each from Dymocks
These books are soo gorgeous and make the perfect little treat for someone that loves fashion or travel or both. Megan’s drawings and fashionable notes on each of these cities are an absolute delight. They also make a lovely addition to a coffee table book stack ♥
2. This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray
$37 from Mecca
Not to sound cliché, but this works. It is a product I would never have looked at or bought myself, but it was given to me by a very thoughtful and in the know friend and I am so grateful and glad that she introduced me to this product as I have without a doubt been falling asleep quicker and sleeping deeper, and waking up more refreshed since using it. It is an unusual gift I know, but I really love that it was given to me so I would absolutely give it to someone else. It would also pair perfectly with a candle or some nice tea.
3. New Era Baseball Cap
Mini LA in Beige $40 from Culture Kings
I really like these hats, the one above is my personal pick for Summer but the Culture Kings store and website has seriously got something for everyone, different colors, different teams, different styles. The black on black are so chic and the baby pink are super cute too. Right in time for Summer and lots of time in the sunshine a cool cap is a great gift, sun-smart and chic!
4. Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick
$41 from Net-A-Porter
This Lipstick is a little special for a few reasons, firstly Charlotte Tilbury make beautiful products, secondly look how pretty that packaging is! Thirdly its not available here in Australia so she will know you have gone to extra trouble on this one. The Pillow Talk lipstick is an absolute cult favorite amongst the international beauty blogger set and after seeing it in action on my girlfriend just last week, I see why, this is the perfect nude lip.
5. BKR Glass Water Bottle
$50 from Mecca
Before you all say this is insanity, $50 for a drink bottle. Again, this is a product that I have and love, again, I didn’t buy it and probably wouldn’t have bought it for myself but I think thats what makes it a great gift. It is a little bit extra luxe to have such a fancy re-usable water bottle and they are so chic, they come in the prettiest selection of colors. They are environmentally friendly and encourage you to drink more water, it is an all round positive gift.
6. Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist
$70 from Mecca
This is just a luxurious little treat for her desk drawer or handbag. Think the Avène Thermal Spring Water Mist but elevated about 40 levels. It feels beautiful on and hydrates the skin leaving you looking refreshed and dewy without ruining your makeup – it’s kind of genius really.
7. Diptyque Vanille Candle
$78 from Mecca
The perfect gift for a host or just any girl you know likes candles (so really any girl). Vanille is my pick at the moment, but really there are so many beautiful scents to choose between, Jasmin, Mimosa, Tubereuse, I could go on for ages, go into a Mecca store and have a play, you can’t go wrong with a candle from Diptyque!
8. Slip Silk Pillow Case
$85 from Zimmermann (online only)
Sleeping on a pure Silk pillowcase is not just luxurious but its actually really good for your skin and hair. It reduces friction throughout the night which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and reduce hair breakage. Added bonus, it will also help to increase the longevity of a blow wave.
9. Peter Alexander Paris PJs
$99 from Peter Alexander
Cute new summer PJs with Parisian motifs – a perfect gift. Peter alexander have also started doing plus sizes as well I noticed which is so great as to be quite honest I have always felt their sizes ran a little small, especially for PJs as you want you PJs to be loose not tight. Anyway these are pretty and make a great gift.
10. Fresh White Sneakers for Summer
Superga $99.95 from David Jones
In Summer I live in my white trainers, they go with everything and look so fresh. I love these Superga ones with the kind of flatform vibe just for something different.
11. A Bottle of Laurent-Perrier Rosé Champagne
$111 from Vintage Cellars
A bottle of Champagne is a beautiful gift, but try something other than Moet or Veuve (which in my humble opinion are both boring and taste pretty rubbish). This is one of my all time favorite Rosé Champagnes for taste and the bottle is beautiful too which doesn’t hurt for a gift. My other favorites to give as gifts are Billecart Salmon Rosé and Louis Roederer Brut NV, all three are beautiful Champagnes, and a little more unique which will make you look extra thoughtful!
Bonus: hopefully whoever you gift this to will open it and share it with you ♥
12. A Pretty Day Dress
$130 from Seed Heritage
Its Summer we live in easy throw on dresses! This one is too cute with its pom poms and off the shoulder style. I have this myself and it is perfect for running around on the go or to wear to a friends BBQ, I get so many compliments when I wear it and it’s super comfortable even when you are eating a huge meal. *Space for a food baby is crucial at this time of year! And receiving a cute dress for Christmas, umm just yes!
13. Gucci Bloom Eau De Parfum
$140 for 50ml from Gucci
This perfume reminds me of the fence at my mums house that was covered in Jasmine when we were growing up. It is such a pretty scent and again the packaging is spot on, simple, feminine and chic – nicely executed Gucci! It also comes in the 100ml which I think is better value but it was a little over my $150 limit for this guide so I couldn’t include it. I would also suggest purchasing this one, if you can, from the Gucci boutique as it will be just that little bit more beautifully packaged up for gifting.
14. Christian Louboutin Rouge Louboutin
$145 from Net-A-Porter
Firstly I am aware that this was on a gift guide from last year too, however, I still think it is such a killer gift and they still aren’t available anywhere in Australia so a very unique and beautiful thing to receive. The Rouge Louboutin is my pick for color as it is such a classic Red and who doesn’t love a statement Red Lip at Christmas.
15. Fresh New Activewear
$140 for a set from Stylerunner
My girlfriend and I often discuss the concept that new activewear has magical powers and it helps you train better and harder. 2018 is around the corner, everyone is at the ready with their healthy New Year Resolutions, what better help to get her going. I think this Leopard set is so cute and fresh for Summer, but if she is not really a leopard person, you cant go wrong with simple high waisted and black.
I hope my list has been helpful to you, there are a few things on here that I have already bought as gifts for my loved ones and a couple that I am definitely coveting as treats for myself over the next few weeks! Let me know if you bought any of these or if you have any awesome gift ideas of your own you want to share. Happy gifting my loves.
