Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Today is the day that marks the start of last minute Christmas shopping as most stores have introduced extended shopping hours. So for those who are busy this time of year and have not started their Christmas shopping (like me) I have put together this list of gifts suitable for the girls in your life whether it be your mum, sister, bestie or even your girlfriend.  

Glasshouse Triple Scented Candles

Encased in a gorgeous glass jar, these candles are something very special. With non toxic and triple scented wax these candles fill up a room with their beautiful scents named after the worlds most exotic locations. My pick is Montego Bay which is Coconut Lime. Glasshouse candles retail for $36.95(AUD) and can be purchased in store here and online here.

Gossip Girl Seasons 1-4 Box Set
This series follows the lives of four privileged “Upper Eastsides” from New York and the scandals that follow themselves and their families. Perfect for the fashionista in your life, those who love a juicy drama and for those who were fans of the 2004 drama, The OC. Foxtel is currently airing Season 5 so this box set is great for those who want to catch up on the gossip. This box set retails for $114.95(AUD) and is available from JB Hi Fi or Myer.

Jersey Boys – Soundtrack
The soundtrack from the stage show musical about Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, this CD has up beat songs for both young and old. I saw the stage show, Jersey Boys earlier this year and loved it. This CD would be great Christmas Day listening with the whole family and features fun songs such as “Oh What a Night”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Sherry”. Jersey Boys the Soundtrack can be purchased for $23.99(AUD) from JB Hi Fi or most music retailers.

The Kardashian Kollection Handbags and Wallets
Whether you love them or hate them, their bags and wallets sure are pretty. The on trend Kollection from Strandbags prices from $119.95(AUD) however as I type, Strandbags are currently offering 25% off all stock.

Kardashian Chain Tote $99.95(AUD)

Peter Alexander Sleepwear
Peter Alexander makes the most adorable sleepwear that makes the perfect gift. His pieces are quality made with the softest cotton and currently has a great Christmas/Holiday gift collection, so give someone the gift to “sleep in style”. My favourite collection would have to be the Disney collection and the Thumper Sleep Tee is just too cute!
Thumper Sleep Tee $59.90(AUD)

Belle Noel by Kim Kardashian
The Belle Noel collection contains some beautiful statement cocktail jewellery pieces designed in collaboration with Kim Kardashian and famed jeweller Pascal Mouawad. Belle Noel is fairly reasonable in price for a celebrity jewellery collection in Australia and you can purchase some nice pieces for under $100.
Honey Hexagon Locket $45.50(AUD)
