[emphasized type=”emphasized”]We all know that Christmas is about receiving giving, but the struggle is real when trying to find the perfect present![/emphasized]
We’ve all performed the awkward act of feigned surprise when opening a useless present, while in our heads we are quickly calculating how much its worth and what we can swap it for… don’t pretend you haven’t!
Whether it’s for your girlfriend, wife, sister, mother or that chick that lives next door you’ve been trying to date for months, here are some full-proof gift ideas that will have them squealing with REAL pleasure… no faking it here.
Create a seamless soundtrack for her(and your) life with Sonos speakers. Control all your music and streaming services from the single Sonos app and enjoy uninterrupted, perfectly tuned Yeezy… only Yeezy. Or whatever takes your fancy. Our choice:
PLAY:1 is the all-in- one smart speaker that packs so much hi-fi sound into a super compact design – the mini speaker with the mighty sound!
PLAY:5 is the biggest Sonos home speaker with the boldest sound!
If she’s got impeccable(and no doubt expensive) taste and style, here’s what to get your fashion-obsessed woman:
The ethically and ecologically grounded sneaker makers out of France. They don’t advertise, they don’t use sweatshops and they don’t trade on their morals, AND they make dayummm fine sneakers!! We love the V-10 Nautico Pekin’s, dayummm guurl.
CLOTHING: Uniqlo x Carine Roitfield
Queen of ‘cool-girl’, style icon Carine Roitfeld has collaborated with Uniqlo and launched a collection of Parisian chic staples that are essential to any fashionista’s wardrobe! Literally any piece is a no-brainer!
If your missus is decked out in lycra by 7am Saturday morning and remains lycra-ed until 7pm Sunday night, anything from 213 Apparel is bound to keep her happy! Yoga clothing that can be worn on or off the mat, she’ll be ‘athleisurely’ grateful for the new gear.
Everyone(minus those poor lactose intolerants) love a cheese board. And if it’s not a cheese board, it’s a Jamie Oliver style rustic spread. Crafted out of beautiful Tasmanian timbers, it’s hard to go past The Big Chop for the ultimate wooden board. Square, circle, rectangle, whatever your shape or size, they are the perfect gift for the ultimate foodie!
If she can’t function in the morning pre-caffeine hit, get you’re hands on the new Nespresso Creatista to get the “survival juice”flowing. It’ll give you cafe quality coffee at home, so you won’t have to duck for cover with her morning moods!
For the woman that loves her chill time, or is simply looking for the TRILLEST sleepwear, look no further than P.Jame. Designed by Bambi Northwood-Blyth and partner Dan Single, sleep and style become one with the ultimate #SnoozeKing and #SnoozeQueen get-up. Wear it out or wear it to bed, welcome her to the #SNOOZELYF…
If she’s organized, clean, put-together and has an aversion to clutter, put a ring on it! OR give her the ultimate minimal accessory – a Two Sourced choker. A unique and structural piece(just like her), it’ll match with her monochromatic, clutter-free life.
If you’re in the dog-house from your poor choice last Christmas, or just trying to earn some brownie points, surprise her with something special from Melbourne based jewellery label James and Irisa. Showcasing the modern appeal of the Australian opal, our pick is the Meteorolite Points Cuff Ring. You’ll have the next 5 years(minimum) covered with this one!
Probably not one for your mum, but we’re not judging… If you’re looking for the ultimate stay-cation(that you get to be apart of too) a night at QT Melbourne is the perfect location!
Designed for the city it’s in, Melbourne’s newest boutique hotel has custom-made artwork and furniture, a talking elevator, a whole floor dedicated to its signature bar and grill Pascale, and a whole list of other elegant and eclectic quirks typical of all QT’s. Book in for a night or 2 and treat yo-self! I mean HER! Treat her.
Now go forth and wrap!
