I am right there with you now as we quickly approach Christmas. Gift shopping doesn’t always come easily so I wanted to ease the burden by sharing some simple ideas that might be that perfect gift for your loved ones. These are some of my absolute favourite year round things… things I can’t live without… and things I know that you will love too.
Forget regular beach towels. Super stylish cotton Turkish towels are bang on trend and perfect for the beach, pool or home.
If you are going in indulge in Chocolate… make sure it is the best quality. Pana Chocolate is handmade, raw, vegan, organic, gluten and refined sugar free. There are so many delicious flavours to choose from and you can buy them individually or in a beautiful festive gift pack.
Magimix Cook Expert
My Magimix Cook Expert makes meal prep as simple as humanly possible. The all in one kitchen gadget cooks, slices, grates, chops, blends, whips, mixes and so much more. This is quite literally the only kitchen appliance you are ever going to need.
I love my coffee and love that I can save on paper cups by using a stylish keepcup… and as an added bonus the coffee even tastes better than in a paper cup.
The trucker cap is one of those classic accessories that never goes out of style. Un-branded caps are my favourite and you are sure to get loads of ware out of one over the summer.
Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi
Ottolenghi is quite literally single handedly responsible for making veggie cooking sexy! Plenty is not a new release but a classic. It’s a great way to introduce the home cook in your life to the vibrant, sophisticated world of Ottolenghi veggies.
Lemons are one of the healthiest, most versatile food ingredients. Having a great juicer/press is a key kitchen gadget. This device makes getting the most juice out of your lemons a cinch.
Heirloom variety seeds is a great low cost gift idea for kids and keen gardeners. These gorgeous packets, with vintage illustrations, come from Koskela. Diggers Club have wonderful varieties of seeds and their website and member magazine are bursting with information and gardening inspiration.
High quality tea is one of the best choices for the healthy gift option. The Tea Centre is a tea Aladdin’s cave were you are guaranteed to find a variety of tea to suit anybody.
Anything you can do to encourage people to print their photos is a good thing in my book. With digital cameras it is too easy to never make prints. Frames in all shapes and sizes can go together on mass to make an amazing feature wall to be cherished forever.
I have been using Everescence haircare products for years and love spreading the word about this pure, organic and Australian made range. The high quality essential oils within turn your shower time into a spa experience and your hair will love the gentle yet highly effective shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling products.
doTERRA Essential Oils
doTERRA is one of the world’s leading essential oils companies. They produce amazingly high quality products but also give back with some profits going to support a number of global charities. Not only are essential oils glorious when used for aromatherapy but they have a much broader application from cooking to cleaning.
I am super fussy about my cosmetics and did a lot of research before settling on Hourglass as my make-up of choice. A new lipstick is a great simple gift idea to spoil someone special.
The importance of a good knife should never be overstated. A good, medium/large kitchen knife is an investment and can last a lifetime if well cared for. If you know anyone battling with cheap and nasty knifes then treat them with a upgrade to some Japanese quality like my favourite Tojiro.
