Gift Guide: Christmas stocking stuffers

December 1, 2016

The Christmas spirit is well and truly upon us! The reminders to get organised are inescapable. Jingles at the grocery stores, crying children on Santa’s lap at the mall and strings of invitations to Christmas events and gatherings.

In the craziness of gift shopping, cooking and festive entertaining, it can be easy to overlook stocking stuffers. Show your loved ones some extra love this year by filling their stockings with nifty gifts that they’re sure to love.

Don’t forget to check out my collection of Christmas gifts for Her, Him and the jet-setter!


A creative, sexy and fun gift for your partner! Lust at First Bite is like nothing else. This delicious and playful cookbook combines life’s greatest pleasures: love, lust, laughter, food and fun. This books helps you to rekindle your passion by helping you focus on communication, connection, respect and intimacy. It’s full of fun games, recipes and ideas to kick-start your communication with one another. My favourite? A course of Playful Paella followed by a game of Tie Me Up Tiramisu…


Jaybird headphones

I often have issues with headphones. They either break (I like to sweat ALOT) or fall out repetitively and get on my nerves! I recently discovered the Jaybird Freedoms and find them perfect for running, gym or any form of exercise. With a diverse range of ear clips, you’ll find the perfect fit that won’t budge. Their sound quality is incredible and you can even download the MySound app which lets you customize the sound based on the genre of the music! The earphones welcome you every time you turn them on and even tell you how your battery is going throughout your workout, generally lasting for up to six hours. Such a great gift idea for a techie or a gym junkie!



This colourful, bluetooth speaker is sure to get some attention. In comparison to its predecessor the UE Boom 2 is louder, has improved sound quality, new colours and also comes completely waterproof! The speaker is perfect for house parties, dancing in the shower or just background music while you cook. It seamlessly connects to your devices like your phone and computer and plays up to 15 hours!! I seriously can’t live without my UE Boom/s (Yes, I have two – which makes the experience even greater when you connect the pair!) and I’m thrilled with the new and improved version.


Modere I/D Anti-Aging System


There’s been quiet some buzz about this ‘miracle’ treatment so I was super excited to try it out! The clinically proven anti-aging system is said to be great for more than just ageing issues and even helps with pigmentation and acne. The system works by carrying oxygen to the skin to boost cell receptivity while encouraging your skin’s detoxifying processes. You will see instant improvement in moisture retention, radiance and a reduction of lines. I gave this a go and instantly felt my face bubble, as the oxygen was ‘injected’ into my skin cells. Following the treatment, my skin felt smooth and was visibly more even. I can’t wait to see the results over a month of use. Great gift idea for those that love a bit of pampering!


Bhave luxe hair products


Anyone that loves their locks must try the Bhave hair products! Not only do they smell incredible but they are full of nourishing ingredients that create bouncy, head-turning hair. This year I am loving the Style me pamper pack that also comes with a chic gold clutch, perfect for the festive season! The Bhave range caters to many different hair types so make sure you check it out and don’t forget to grab some for yourself as well!



Do you have a difficult family member that’s impossible to buy for? Why don’t you make them a lovely pamper package? Include fun items like bath bombs, nail polish and creams. I put together a fun little package with Jockey Parisienne cami and briefs, BRITE hair masque and Mary Kay Into The Garden Pedicure Set. Perfect for a relaxing night in!


Arbonne gift pack


For a beauty product lover, get a set of favourites from Arbonne. I recently discovered Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation and I must say the coverage is fantastic! The foundation applies liquidy so it’s super easy to blend out and the outcome is a gorgeous satin finish.  The foundation is SPF 15 and contains no parabens or alcohol.

While shopping Arbonne also check out their Moisturizing Night crème and Restorative Day Crème which are perfect all-round hydrators.

Clarity Remedy Oil by Alyssum Alchemy


Designed to ‘clear the cobwebs’ this unique oil is an uplifting remedy for fatigue and concentration. The scent is divine with the combination of organic oils of Rosemary, Lemon, Peppermint, Lemon Myrtle, Australian Sandalwood, Lavender and Fragonia. All the ingredients are cleverly combined together to help with mood, anxiety, focus and inspiration. I use the oil on my pulse points including my neck and wrists for an uplifting boost!

3 Wishes Lingerie


What’s better to spice up the festive season than with some naughty lingerie? Celebrate the incredible year that’s been with a bang… uh hum…

Whilst 3 Wishes is based in the US, the shipment is extremely quick and definitely worth the few business days’ wait. The quality is impeccable and the materials and fabrics feel smooth and silky on the skin. Not like those cheap costumes we’ve all come across in the past!  Surprise your partner this Christmas with the sexy festive collection. All you have to decide is whether you’ve been naughty or nice…



I can’t think of a more perfect gift for someone that lives at the beach! Faceshade is a clever  UPF50+ umbrella which attaches to an inflatable pillow. Relax in the sun in style while keeping your face out of the sun’s harsh rays.

Best of all, the wines each come with a detailed description of the taste, flavour and smell so you can become a wine connoisseur in no time!
