Christmas Gift Ideas!

Merry Christmas Lovelies!
With a few days left before Christmas I though I would come up with a few gift ideas if your stuck on something to buy for a special someone, whether its your best friend, mum or your sister!
...or even better if your boyfriend, brother or dad don't know what to get you hint to him that he could read this for a little bit of help in choosing your present ;)

The Candle Co- Candy Cane Soy Candle

I find scented candles are a perfect gift anytime of the year, and if you can find one that is Christmas related or scented even better! I came across this amazing Candy Cane candle at the Howick markets made by a mother and daughter team who call themselves 'The Candle Co'.
This candle smells exactly like a fresh minty Candy Cane! It stood out to me because they have made the candle white and red just like a candy cane, as all there other candles are just plain white.
 *If you really like the sound of the Candle Cane Soy candle be quick as there was only a few of these left! Also from their Christmas range they have a candle called 'Mistletoe Soy'.
The Candle Co have so many yummy scents made of 100% natural Soy and are hand poured into mason jars topped with a gorgeous 'flower cut out' lid.
Each candle also comes in a hand made material bag, so theres not need for gift wrapping!

Essie Nail Polish
Nail polishes are a great stocking suffer!
As you can see i've stuck to my theme of classic Christmas colours, picking out a few reddish summery shades for a kiwi Christmas but I do recommend Essie nail polishes as there are so many colours to choose from your bound to find yours or their favourite colour!
My fave shade at the moment is 'Too Too Hot'.
Plus keep an eye out at Farmers as they tend to do a buy two get one free!

Shades are-
Tart Deco- Neon Peach
Too Too Hot- Rich Red Coral
Jump In My Jumpsuit- Juicy Red

Mac Lipsticks 
I'd recommend a Mac lipstick for a special someone because they are a bit pricey they can be a present on their own! Again there are so many shades to choose from, your spoil for choice!
Popular shade at Mac are- Ruby Woo, Velvet Teddy, Mehr.

Shades pictured are- 
Coral Bliss- (Cremesheen) Frosted Light Coral
Morange- (Amplified) Loudmouth Orange
Lady Danger- (Matte) Vivid Bright Coral-Red
Brave Red(Cremesheen) Bright Yellow Red

*Even pairing your Mac Lipstick with a matching Mac lip liner can make a great lip combo and gift!


Perfumes are definitely a special gift so if you are able to spend a little more on someone find out their favourite scent or if their running low on their favourite perfume.
Especially around Christmas time shops like Farmers and Life Pharmacy come out with limited edition gift sets that include the perfume and a matching body lotion and a body wash with the same scent as the perfume.

Popular frangrances at the moment are-
Viktor & Rolf- Flowerbomb (very popular)
Viktor & Rolf- Bon Bon (also very popular)
Marc Jacob- Daisy Dream Forever (new fave), Daisy Dream
Vera Wang- Princess (always a favourite)

*But perfumes don't always have to be expensive celebrity fragrance can be quite affordable like-
Katy Perry- Meow or Killer Queen
Rihanna- RiRi or Reb ́l Fleur
Taylor Swift- Wonderstruck
Kim Kardashian by Kim Kardashian

Quay Australia 'My Girl' Sun Glasses

The 'My Girl' sunnies from Quay have been so popular this year so I though especially for NZ and Aussie girls or guys sunnies would make an awesome gift for the Summer Holidays!
My first purchase and absolute favourites are the 'Matte Black frames with Blue Mirror Lens' and because I love these so much I just has to purchased another pair that i've had my eye on for some time- the 'Black Tort frames with Pink Mirror Lens'.
These are so light, sturdy and perfect for the beach!

*A lot of the time you will find these sold out, so definitely sign up for an email notification for when they are back in stock!

Best online shops to buy them from are White Fox Boutique as they sell the most styles,
Princess Polly and Peppermayo also stock a few of the colours as well as other Quay designs.

Framed Photographs
If you want to give a more personal special gift why not get some of your digital photos printed and frame them in a really fancy or simple frame! 
Whether its a selfie of you and your best friend, sister or mum or just a picture your pet! I'm sure they will love it!
Now days I find I forget about a photo i've taken unless I print it, and just by framing it holds a special memory to look back on.
Shops like- Typo, Kmart or The Warehouse have some simple and quirky frame that aren't pricey at all!

Mirrored frames are from Kmart. 

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and relaxing holiday!
Thanks to everyone who continues to read and support my blog, it really means a lot!
