It feels like Christmas has gotten here even quicker than usual this year and the time has come to be picking out presents if you haven’t already. We’ve been busy scouting some great gifts that are perfect for the women on your list to give you some ideas.
Kagi can always be relied upon to deliver beautiful jewellery that’s a hit with many different age groups. They have a huge range of stunning pieces and we’re particularly fond of this Red Velvet bracelet which is made from red Murano style glass beads. It makes for a gorgeous piece on its own or can be paired with a matching necklace for a striking combination.
Everything at Blush is elegant and perfectly curated so it’s no surprise that their Santa Sacks for Christmas are sublime and make the perfect gift pack. We love this one which contains Amazinger Face by Zoe Foster Blake (one of Sophie’s favourite books), a shimmery Golda Sphere Soap by Studio Cue L.A, Almond & Sea Salt Chocolate tablet by Western Australia’s Bahen Chocolate and a luxury Charlie Horse Pom-Pom finished with a gold-plated stainless steel clasp and PU leather strap. Not to mention it comes in a beautiful Blush linen bag.
For the woman who loves being pretty in pink Stella Royal by Augustine’s charming Samantha Kimono is a perfect choice. It’s an easy to wear style that can be worn loose and relaxed or more fitted with a tie around the waist. We love the sweet floral print and flattering soft tones of this kimono.
Summer is all about versatility and we adore this winsome Cabana dress by Tanya Carlson which is a wonderful choice for party season too. It’s a great way to add some colour to your wardrobe and is a relaxed fit so you can wear it how you want to and if you’re giving it as a gift it’s easier to get the sizing right. Dressed down with sandals or glammed up with sexy heels it’s a stunning piece that is available in two sublime colourways – Maraschino and Midori.
We think Kimberley’s Mustique dress would suit a range of ages and body shapes which makes it a great idea if you’re after a casual yet stylish dress to give away (or to keep for yourself). The simple shape and easy to wear length makes it an adaptable summer choice, not to mention the fun tropical print that won us over.
While a Trelise Cooper ensemble may or may not be in the budget for Christmas, her ever popular and always lovely tea towels are definitely at an accessible price and make a sweet gift for mum or nana. There are a few different designs to choose from and each set of 3 tea towels is made from 100% cotton.
It’s no secret that Karen Walker is a wizard when it comes to clothing, accessories, jewellery and well pretty much everything sartorial really. Her creativity and clever ideas mean oh so many choices each season but we’ve narrowed it down to this timeless Rope scarf in classic navy and white that has a touch of nautical and is easily adapted into anyone’s wardrobe.
Ok, so we did do a whole other gift guide for beauty products but just in case you didn’t read it or hadn’t got there yet we thought we’d add in this amazing soap by Ingrid Starnes to this list. It has the most divine scent and is an all natural parfum,with the ingredients including organic manuka honey, organic goat’s milk and shea butter for a luxurious feeling soap which leaves your hands soft.
A good hat is a summer essential in New Zealand and we couldn’t resist this cute bucket hat by Huffer in pastel pink. It’s made from 100% canvas and fully lined so it gives good sun protection and could easily be worn by lots of ages.
Garments don’t come much more classic that the white shirt and we love this simple but chic version by Sabatini which is a summer staple. It’s made from a soft linen blend and is a boxy fit which makes it quite versatile and easy to pair with other pieces.
Isaac + Lulu excel in modern garments that are particularly covetable like this beautiful Sofia floral cropped jacket in a cocoon shape. It’s made from an exclusive jacquard fabric and it’s clean lines means the focus is on the sublime print in teal and melon.
Shift dresses have been popular since the 60s and for good reason as they are a simple style that is easily dressed up or down. We have been adoring this sweet version from Workshop which has a darted bust, nipped-in waist and features a lovely embroidered daisy motif.
We have to admit there are always so many wonderful choices in store at Ruby that choosing just one thing for this list was nearly impossible. However this divine wallet is a great gift and as much as we prefer the tan version with delicate gold stars, it is also available in black, pink and moonshine without stars if you’re after something simpler but still gorgeous.
