Xmas Gift Ideas - Part 2

Now there are less than two months until its Xmas….including today,  there are just leaves 56 days for your gift shopping.

As you may recall, I have already done a post on Xmas gift ideas – which I appropriately labelled ‘Part 1’, as I knew there would be more and more beautiful gift sets available as we get closer and closer to the big day. If you haven't yet seen Part 1, you can see it here.

Here are my latest suggestions of gift ideas.

So I thought I’d put together a list of things that I would love to receive - and hopefully I can give you some good ideas too. 


Justin Bieber Girlfriend
Get close with Justin Bieber’s new fragrance, Girlfriend and never let go. Flirty, personal, inviting, Justin’s new fragrance draws you in with an exciting splash of crisp mandarin and juicy blackberry. From there, things heat up with exotic floral notes of pink freesia and star jasmine, before striking a flame in your heart with warm vanilla orchid and sultry musk.

Personally, I cannot say that I am a Bieber fan, but I do love the look of the bottle!

I love beauty books, so I have my eyes on the Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible, and that makeup set from Laura Mercier looks so divine. Oh, and I also love the white vases from Witchery, so sleek and simple, and support OCRF at the same time, how good is that!

What do you think of my new gift ideas? Will any of these be on your wish list this Christmas?




  1. I agree with you...that perfume bottle looks amazing

    1. If only it didn't have the Bieber tag, then I would probably have been a bit more likely to get it ;-)

  2. Great post! The Clinique Chubby stick set looks really nice :) Not sure if I'll go for that if the revlon ones are released!

    1. Thanks heaps! I agree, the Revlon ones do look very good too, and I'm sure come at a better price too!

  3. Beautiful gift guide. I LOVE the ceramic vase set!
