Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner? The hardest part is figuring out what gifts to buy family and friends. So, I decided to write up my annual Christmas gift guide! This year, the gift guide will be in two parts featuring unique gifts including gadgets, beauty, health and fitness. So read on for part one featuring goodies for the ladies and gentlemen in your life.
That Matt is Mine
Give your yogie friend something unique this Christmas – like a colourful, personalised yoga mat! That Mat is Mine is a Canberra based small business that has seven gorgeous and uplifting mat designs which you can pair with a personalised strap! Never misplace your yoga mat or worry about it being taken as it will literally now have your name on it. The mat is super compact, made of natural rubber and finished with a smooth microfiber-suede top. So, it’s designed so that the more you sweat, the grippier it gets. Additionally, as an extra healthy-bonus, That Mat does not contain silicone, toxic glue or PVC! A great gift idea for all the gym lovers, fitness nuts or mindful meditators.
Are you a gym goer, dog walker, love a good podcast or into some funky tunes? Whatever it is, wireless headphones always come in handy. I use the AudioFly AF45W in-ear wireless headphones and I’m super impressed with the sound, smartphone compatibility and chic design. This everyday essential comes in two fresh colours and combines a 11mm dynamic driver for the perfect balance between punchy bass, clear mids and well-defined highs. Available at JB Hi-Fi in All-Black and White and rose-gold for just $89.99.
Sunbeam High Performance Power Blender
For loved ones that love to cook or entertain, this new power blender by Sunbeam might be the thing they’ve been waiting for! It’s super versatile and can make everything from soups, smoothies, dips, sauces and soups! The blender can knead, grind, mill, chop and juice. A great gift idea and an excuse to whip it out and make daiquiris on Christmas day.
I’ve never met a man that doesn’t love a good quality leather belt. So, spoil a man in your life like your dad, your partner or your brother with some goodies from Buckle 1922. I’ve written about this Aussie company before and we even used their quality cufflinks and belts for our wedding! Family run with a passion for quality, Buckle 1922 provides some great Christmas gift ideas.
Circa Home Candles
Created by the sister company of Glasshouse, Circa Home light and refreshing fragrances are infused into a variety of home products ranging from mood-lifting scented soy wax candles to fragrant diffusers and hand washes. This Christmas, pick up their unique Christmas range with scents like Raspberry and Rhubarb and Cinnamon Sticks. Whichever scent you choose, you’ll be instantly welcomed home by a bouquet of beautiful fragrances that get you feeling festive.
Another popular brand that is embracing the festive vibes is T2! Releasing a range of Christmas themed teas like Candy Cane and Christmas Breakfast you can certainly wake up and feel festive every day. Additionally, T2 released a Christmas range of accessories, tea pots, candles and fun gifts.
Life Less Common Sunglasses
A Melbourne-based sunglass brand that creates unique styles that are made to be noticed. The range is hand-crafted, polarised and designed in Australia. My favourite part about this brand is their ‘Try-on’ function on their website that lets you upload a selfie and try all of their sunglasses! Support Aussie designers and spoil a loved-one with an original from Life Less Common.
Does your loved one have it all? I have many people in my life that are tricky to buy for, so I had to add a custom-made pamper box to this Christmas Gift Guide. Most importantly, collect products designed to make them feel beautiful, healthy and radiant. Start with body care – I’m loving the gorgeous pampering products by Embalm skincare. Get a pampering lotion and a hydrating body wash in their Body Care Twin pack. Don’t forget to add a skin smoothing exfoliating mitt!
Next add something luxurious for the face, like the Enbacci Deep Cleansing Pack that contains a microdermabrasion exfoliating scrub and a detoxifying mask. For something extra, add a Pore Minimiser cream which is a life saver under makeup for a smooth foundation finish!
Above all, it’s important to kick-start their health from the inside with some body loving vitamins from The Natural Vitamin Co! This vitamin brand is created using goodness from the garden not the lab. So, they use fresh, natural ingredients they created a whole range to treat a variety of conditions. I’ve been loving Probiotic Kombucha and Hair Skin & Nails tablets. The entire range is vegan-friendly, gluten-free and GMO-free. Finish off the box with some Papaya Gold paw paw and you have a wonderful pampering gift box they will love.
