A Fashionista’s Christmas Gift Guide

Eating decadent food, sipping fancy cocktails, having many a laughs, a bit of a boogie, and of course enjoying many stylish gifts… yes Christmas is upon us and I’m excited!

Christmas is such a beautiful time for family and friends to get together and celebrate the year that was. It’s also a fabulous excuse to spoil our loved ones with gifts to thank them for the support they’ve given us.

Not only can gift giving be one of the most lovely things about Christmas, it can also be the most stressful. Many fashionista’s can be very hard to buy for, and I must admit I am one of them.

So, to help you work out what to buy for the style queen in your life, I’ve popped together a very stylish gift guide just for you.

From the finest champagne, to glitzy jewels, and killer heels, this is what she’ll want, believe me.

Beauty items are always a wonderful idea for gifts. They can be as inexpensive or as expensive as you want, and the variety is endless. For me, a cute coloured lipstick always brightens up my day. If you surprise your beauty with a fab lippy, she’ll be pout, pout, pouting for a big smooch from you. Mwah!

  • Love your post, Emma! My favourite thing about Christmas is stay with those I love. Doesn’t matter if it’s my family or friends when I’m not in my home country.

It’s great to be able to escape the hot summer in Australia to visit loved ones in a more festive city with cold temperatures and let’s not forget, WINTER FASHION (typically my favourite as a fellow fashion blogger). I’m currently counting down the days until I head off to the airport to be able to do my favourite thing for Christmas.. six days to go!
