Here it is! The start of our gift guide series I won’t shut up about because it’s taken forever and a day to organise. I hope this is super helpful – don’t forget to let me know your thoughts and to enter our massive giveaway down below. Thanks again to everyone who was as excited as me in the lead up to this. I hope you love it!



Sometimes receiving a gorgeous set of hand repairing duo like these Molton Brown Wondrous Myrrh, Musk & Cypress Hand Wash & Lotion duo is so special. Last year I received the Jurlique Clarity Hand Wash and Lotion that every time I look at that set I’m reminded of the person who gifted it too me. Perfect for a Mum, Auntie, grandma or friend it can really be a special gift because it’s not something you’d usually splash out on. I find the Molton Brown duo a little more unisex so if you’re gifting a couple it would still work well.

Hair electronics is always a favourite for women and the Vs Sassoon Power of Pink Style Express Hair Dryer is a great one if you’re after a good quality hair dryer that won’t break the bank. I’ve previously owned a VS Sassoon and it’s lasted me years before I left it in a hotel room… Derp. Everything from the Power of Pink range also supports Breast Cancer Australia so it’s worth hunting one down from this particular range. If you’re wanting to splurge a little more you can’t go past the MUK Curl Stick Set, it’s still super affordable in terms of hair electronics, and one step further a GHD Gold Professional Max Styler will have everything girl swooning!

When it comes to beauty sets Clarins always seem to nail it and this year was no different. This Clarins Beauty and Radiance Set would be perfect for any range of age and includes firm favourites of mine like the Beauty Flash Balm and Hand Cream. If you’re after a more pampering pack this Spa @ Home Set was my pick and for a more make up based kit the Lip Balm Crayon Collection is equally as gorgeous. The make up pouch included in the sets is so sturdy… I’m a little jealous of the giveaway winner!

For the girl who likes to pamper you really can’t go past Aromatherapy Associates as a brand. They have something to suit every budget and the products are so potent that they will last a few baths. If you’re after something super special the Aromatherapy Associates Ultimate Bath Jewels is great value for money and is a smart choice if you’re unsure what fragrance to buy for that particular person. On the other end of the spectrum they’re also doing these uber cute Aromatherapy Associates London The Star you can hang on your tree which contain one of the scents – such a great secret santa present or stocking stuffer!

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1207699″]



For the beauty lover who has it all you might find buying her a make up set a little impossible so the next best thing is always a candle. Glasshouse Fragrances have some gorgeous selections in their permanent range however I really rate their christmas collection this year. The Christmas Cheer and White Christmas Candle are my picks but if you’re again not sure what the person likes scent wise they’ve also released some little trios like the Destination Collection Miniature Candle Trio that would be perfect if you’re unsure!

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1207712″]



If you’re after something small for a secret santa present then this set from Lanolips is not only gorgeous but also such great value! How could you go past that case?! I would probably buy this for myself if I seen it in store… Another cute idea would be to pop some extra bits of make up in the pouch for a little surprise. It makes the gift that little bit more thoughtful too.

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1207740″]




The Sephora Wishes Come True Palette is another limited edition offering which would be perfect as a small gift or stocking stuffer. It’s super affordable so it won’t break the bank and I’m impressed with the two highlighters so far! They also released the Wonderful Dreams Palette for the holiday season which has 8 matte eyeshadows included and again would make an ace gift.

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1207763″]


Bobbi Brown’s Holiday Gift Collection is absolutely stunning and if you’re after a super special make up piece for a sister or Mum it’s where to look. I think the Caviar Mini Lip & Eye Palette is a great little palette for gifting and one most would get use out of. For the make up junkie you can’t go wrong with the  shimmer brick that’s limited edition! Check out the full review I did on these two here. 

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1207787″]


Another fab make up set that has been released into Sephora Australia is the Marc Jacobs The Sofia Set that consists of 5 different lip shades. I have a full review on this one coming soon so keep your eyes peeled for that. Unfortunately I couldn’t see this on the Sepgora Australia website so if you’re after it I would recommend heading into one of their stores.


As always the gift sets from Jurlique are absolutely divine! I’ve given these to family members throughout the years and they’ve always been a hit. If you’re after something a little smaller for someone who loves rose scented things the Jurlique Rose Hand Cream Set is uber cute and a popular product so chances are it’ll be a winner. If you’re looking to give some great quality skincare the Rose Moisture Plus Essentials kit is a great one as it suits so many skin types and ages. There is a full review coming on this set as well but honestly worth picking up for yourself or someone special whilst it’s out!

    Whoohoo congratulations Sarah! I have been so excited for this – fantastic gift ideas for everyone! Easy to see how hard you’ve worked curating this post (:

    The Estee Lauder Modern Muse set is definitely high up on my list of gifts ‘for her’ – it comes with a shower gel and body lotion in addition to a full-sized bottle of the Modern Muse original perfume. It’s a super classy and transitional scent (and my current signature!).

    Such an amazing prize to be won. Great products! I like to go all out with the wrapping paper for the adults this year it will be gold and silver and for the kids I like to make sure the wrapping paper is all Christmas themed with Santa, snowflakes, reindeer’s and Christmas trees all over the paper.

    Ooh, some lovely goodies there. I’ve already shopped for my sister, but i’ll have to send my other half here for some helpful hints :-)
    Oh and wrapping paper…I think i’m going to let the kid loose on a giant roll of drawing paper with paint and stamps and see how he goes.

    This is a huge help, Sarah! I always do love looking through gift guides, I think you just have to put thought into a gift and it will be special. Although sadly not everyone is like that.

    The children want to paint butchers paper with pretty christmas patterns so that will be the go this year :)

    I am keeping it traditional and fresh with red, green and silver striped wrapping paper! I also like to wrap my chocolates with red and white striped paper because it reminds me and my family of candy canes!!!

  36. 39

    I try and reuse wrapping paper, so whatever I can dig out of my cupboard, hopefully something red and green.

  37. 40

    Good picks, Sarah!

    I don’t normally have a wrapping paper theme. I just use whatever’s available (normally what was purchased in last year’s boxing day sales :P)

  38. 41

    I really want that Jurlique hand cream! And I’m not super organised to have a Christmas wrapping paper theme, I use what’s there ;-)

  39. 42

    What an awesome giveaway Sarah! It’s just mind blowing!
    And, I’m a cheap skate. I only buy from the 2 dollar shop and not particular with Christmas wrappings. I like the shiny ones though.
