The Style Gift Guide

I can’t believe I just typed the word “Christmas”! How is it here already!

They say each year goes faster as you get older, but could it just slow-up a little so I can catch up? I’m still back in July right?

Well whether I’m ready or not, Christmas is less than a MONTH away so it really is time to start thinking about the gift-giving list. Since I love all the things fashion and style, I thought I’d put together a list of accessories that you could either give someone as their main present, or easily stuff in someones stocking this Christmas!

Big gifts

These are for those special people in your life that are hard to buy for, but mean the world to you! A meaningful gift that they can use in their everyday life and think of you.

A leather handbag

Saben bag

GET THE BAG: Saben black leather “Obi” bag $450

I love supporting local brands and this NZ brand Saben does THE BEST leather handbags ever! Stick to a neutral tone like black or tan, that way the gift-receiver can use it everyday. A great, versatile leather handbag is something most of us use everyday, so imagine having a friend or family member thinking of you everyday when they reach for their keys or sunnies – how sweet!!

A beautiful scarf

Bird and knoll

SHOP THE SCAF: Bird & Knoll Fiji Bula Paradise Scarf $289

But not just any old scarf. Make it a meaningful gift with one of these gorgeous scarves from Bird & Knoll. These AMAZING luxurious oversized cashmere-blend scarves, described as wearable art, are printed with a photograph of an iconic destination – a beautiful vignette that tells a narrative of each location. This one is Fiji paradise, but there are so many different exotic locations to choose from.

While scarves can be quite a tricky gift to buy for people (your taste can be very different from your sisters, am I right?!) one of these creations will definitely be a treasured gift.

Fine Jewellery


SHOP THE RING: Boh Runga XOX ring from The Mint Republic $79.00

Again, buying jewellery as a present can be tricky, so make sure you know the persons taste that you are buying it for. Saying this, this gorgeous XOX ring from The Mint Republic will work into most people’s jewellery tastes, and I think gifting hugs and kisses (XOX) is really sweet! (and if your sis or BFF more a gold kinda person, there are rose gold and yellow gold rings over on the Mint Republic site too)

Stocking Stuffers

If you’re on a budget, or pulled a name out of the secret santa hat, here are a few great little stocking stuffers that will have your gifting in style too! Everything here is under $40 so perfect for a quick (but well thought out) gift, or combine a couple in a gift pack!

STOCKING STUFFERS: 1.Portmans watch $39.95 | 2. Novo plastic sandals $29.95 | 3. Jamberry nail covers $24.00 | 4. Colette by Colette Hayman clutch $24.99 | 5. Redcurrent whale sarong $24.00

So there are just a few wee stylish gift ideas, big and small, I think your sisters (family or not) will appreciate! Now the fun part comes in wrapping them!
