Christmas gifts for the gals

Here’s a few of my recent finds that might be just right for your partner, sister, Mum, Aunt, Grandmother, friend…you choose:

Ok this sounds like heaven to me – two of my favourite things coffee and chocolate (it just needs the bubbly and I’d have the trifecta!)The Oxfam shop Fair Hamper containing a mug, world blend coffee, drinking chocolate and dark chocolate spread for $32.95.

I just keep coming back to anything with a Liberty print and Dusty Plum has been my latest find using them to make lots of lovely goodies like this Button brooch and necklace chocker for $15.

Aromatherapy eye patch from Sussan – a great little device to take away the day’s stresses or to shift a nasty headache $24.95. Metal bow Clutch reduced to $21.25. Leather look fabric includes flap closure with concealed stud fastner, a metal bow at the centre front and chain handle.

The leather tote with “New eucalyptus” print from Formosa designs is a touch of Australia without the kitsch! Gorgeous fresh print on organic cotton/hemp with genuine leather trimming. $129 from Formosa Designs.

The Naughty Pony typewriter key bracelet. This little gem is currently on special for $105 – snap it up while you can!

For the edgy girl in the family what about this Alexander McQueen Swarovski crystal skull ring. Available thru for GBP129. This brass skull ring with red crystals is sure to pack a punch!

Who doesn’t love Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Well why not really pull out all stops this year with a special treat (served with breakfast in bed) from Tiffany & Co itself? It doesn’t have to be a diamond darling…this Villa Paloma palm ring is stylish and sure to please. A lovely wide band in sterling silver for $340. (Hey but if you’re feeling flush with cash check out their sparkly section too ;))

Smell divine with luscious treats in the Book of Coconut pack from the Body Shop for $49.95.

Cute Dragon fly print silk scarf  from Laura Ashley reduced to $34.95.

Michael Kors at Macys – Sleeveless Sequined Dress. You can never have too much bling at Christmas! Currently reduced to $134.30.

I just love Aka Tombo and this delightful Japanese Golden Garden kimono hat would make the perfect accessory to all kinds of outfits you may have planned over the holidays. GBP75 from

Fossil have this Wallace Leather watch in White for $169. Inspired by the 1920’s with a slim leather strap and Roman numeral dial.

These sparkly beauties – the Sensation Pierced Earrings – $265 from Swarovski Rhodium plated, pear shaped in a gorgeous chandelier drop you are bound to be the shining star this Christmas!

As always remember in the end it is not the gift but the thought that counts – but some words of advice – don’t buy anything to do with household chores, dieting, sexy underwear (unless chosen and or requested – do you think after cleaning up all the mess everyone makes all day she is going to want to dress up in the little french maid outfit and tickle your fancy? Tickle hers instead!), or tickets to sporting games that only you really can’t wait to go to (for example petrol gives most people a headache so those front row tickets to the Formula One may not put the smile on her face you were hoping for!). When in doubt get a voucher to her favourite local boutique or pampering salon.

Would love to hear about some of your great finds too.
