CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE FOR HER


If you're stuck (like me) on what to get other people for Christmas, i've rounded up a few of my current favourite things and decided to create a "Gift Guide" to help you guys out a bit!

(Pictured: I love…hand cream, The Body shop strawberry body butter, Australis Velourlips matte lipstick in shade Doo-Bai, Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume, Aesop hand cream)

Hand creams, perfumes and lipsticks etc are perfect gift ideas, "stocking stuffers" or Kris Kringle presents because they're a super safe option (especially if you don't know the person very well) as every girl i know would love to receive these products. I especially love receiving hand creams because i always have dry hands and i always seem to end up losing mine! You can also get different brand for cheaper/ more expensive, depending on what your budget is!


If you've got a little bit more money to spend on your sister/ cousin/ best friend etc, a polaroid camera is a super fun idea! I got mine for my 18th birthday from my friends and i've brought it with me every time i go travelling to capture those ~memories~


This has been my newest obsession lately and i would of LOVED to have received this for Christmas! The clutch is from The Daily Edited and the pom pom is from Sportsgirl, and i think they're a really cute match together. The initials on the clutch are also a super cute way to personalise a gift for someone special



Daniel Wellington has always been my favourite watch brands. It's super simplistic and minimal and goes with every single outfit. I got the silver one as a present from my mum and i'm still as obsessed with it as when i first got it. I recently picked up the exact same style i already have, but in a rose gold colour and I'm in love! Also, how cute is the Christmas packaging?! Since it's almost Christmas, i picked up a special coupon code for you guys so that you can get 15% off ALL products on www.danielwellington.com, using "EMXREBLOG." This code is valid until 15/01/16

Every year i go on the hunt for a new diary and i thought it would be a great gift for someone and save them the hassle of purchasing one before the new year starts. I'm a person who likes writing down everything i have to do/ events etc on paper rather than using the calendar app on my phone because i always forget to check it and put myself through last minute stress- always.

I'm still deciding whether I'm a gold or silver girl and it's hard! I try not to "break" the clashing gold/ silver rule, but sometimes i am defs guilty of this haha- I just can't make up my mind! This is why i like to have a nice selection of both gold and silver jewellery for those days i just can't decide. 


(Pictured: Opallac Gel Polish Kit)

This is probably the best things i've ever received! It's an at-home gel polish kit and its sooo easy to use! i've already done it a couple of times now (even on friends) and it looks just as good as the ones you get at the salon. My favourite colour to use is soy cap and high tea. It also comes with the things you need to remove the gel nails afterwards, which i was most happy about! (yay for not going to the salon and spending $30 extra to get them removed!! woo).

Hi, I'm Emma and I'm a Candle vlogger (scream creams reference haha), but seriously. I feel like I'm becoming an adult little by little every time i purchase a new candle (i can also relate to my mum now who's obsessed with candles). Candle's are the BEST present to give someone because who doesn't want their room smelling like an angel in heaven? My current favourite scents are all by Glasshouse (duh) and include Tahaa, which is a vanilla caramel smell (I'm burning it right now and i can't get over how good it smells). These candles are around $50ish but they are 100% worth it. It took me over a year to finally convince myself to burn my Tahaa candle because it smelt so good even without burning it. They also have a Christmas candle called "White Christmas," which smells AMAZ-ING! The little gift pack is also super cute and would be a really nice present for someone! (refer to the second image)

(Pictured: Chi Chi eyeshadow palette in Taupes and Bases with a Models Prefer eyeshadow blending brush) 

Since I'm a broke uni student with no $$ and can't afford the Naked Palettes, i decided to give these Chi Chi ones a go and have been using it ever since. I got these on sale from Target (2 for $22 i think) and i really like the pigment and colour range of these palettes. They have a mixture of matte and shimmery nude colours, which i love! The brushes that come with it are pretty cheap and crappy, so i picked up a blending brush by Models Prefer from Priceline. Altogether this would probably total around $35, which i think is pretty cheap/ reasonable for what it is!

I hope these gave you some ideas on what to get your friends/ family and that you have a Merry Christmas and Happy/ Safe Holidays!

Love, Em x
