Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas | 2015


It's that crazy, wonderful, hectic time of year. If you've left your Christmas shopping to the last minute, it can feel even more stressful. My advice; take advantage of the early morning opening hours and the later closing times. If you're feeling a bit stumped on what to get, how about something along these lines? These are all items you can easily go out and buy yourself in Australia and New Zealand, and even some you can order online and have looked after for you...


-Hourglass Blush: The Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette may be everywhere this season and while it is stunning, it's really not the best value for money. I'd recommend picking up one of their full sized blushers, bronzers or face powders instead. They're luxe, beautiful and such flattering powder products. Available from: Mecca Cosmetica and Mecca Maxima.

-Tender Love & Carry Pouch: I have a rose gold one of these and love it! It's designed to be a makeup bag I'm sure but at the moment it's become my temporary wallet until I buy a new one. They're really lightweight and compact, perfect for storing things like beauty minis, beauty tools, pens, whatever you want really. You could stick her favourite lipstick or something equally as lovely inside too. Available from: Farmers, 

-2016 Diary: There's just something about fashionable stationery that builds the illusion that you're an organised person who has it together and has excellent taste. What better way to keep tabs on all your fabulous moments in 2016 than with a diary. Whether it be weekly, daily, or monthly that you're after, they are a godsend. I'm sure some people will think they're archaic in the days of iCal and the rest, but you cannot beat pen and paper. Available from: Kikki K, Typo, stationery shops. You know the drill..

-Kinfolk Home: Or Kinfolk magazine, whichever floats your boat. I've actually gifted this book to Amy as a wedding gift and she+her partner love it. It's even on my own wishlist. If stunning interiors and home design+decor are popular, they're bound to love this one. Available from: Book Depository, Mag Nation and other specialty book stores.

-Printicular Photos: This one is really easy guys-all you need is a phone, an app and an internet connection+access to a Warehouse Stationery store. You can choose to sync this to your Instagram or upload your own photos, choose what size and finish you want, order them on your phone and bam. Once your pictures start printing they're usually ready not long after. These square sized options are perfect for your Instagram pictures. I think these would make a great gift for someone else if you chose to print out their photos for them. Available from: Warehouse Stationery, the Printicular app is on the app store.

-An iPhone/phone case: The number of people who tote around an expensive phone without a case on it astounds me. Not only do they look rad, but they keep your phone protected! C'mon people. If you're looking for something with a bit more functionality, those phone cases that double as a cardholder are nifty too. Available from: Rifle Paper Co., Kikki K, Typo, I even think Kmart may have some options.

-Freedom Bowls: Homeware is the one item that can be a bit risky as people's tastes with this are either really clear cut or a bit more relaxed. You can't go wrong with something like bowls or plates though. They might seem boring but if you buy something that you know will appeal to someone's tastes then it's much more thoughtful. I love this Freedom set (pictured) but they have a ton of other great options in store too. 

-What would you recommend someone buy for Christmas as a last-minute gift?

*Have an awesome Christmas everyone! If you don't celebrate, I hope you enjoy some rest and relaxation as well. This is my last post until next week-I'm not sure when I'll be back blogging because I'm really just winging things at the moment. I'm working pretty much every day next week too so it might be a bit more difficult to upload posts. We shall see. I'm off now to tidy my room and then I might do some Christmas themed reading. I'm working Christmas Eve so I'm trying to relax now while I still can haha. See y'all sometime next week-post Chocolate and gift giving x.
