It’s officially time to start (or finish) ticking off your Christmas list with exactly 3 weeks to go until the big day! It may be your favourite time of the year to shop ‘til you drop, or something that you’re seriously dreading, so to ease that Christmas chaos I’ve put together a list of gifts and tips to make it super easy to spoil your loved ones this December 25.

Chadstone – The Fashion Capital is also making your life easier this year with its digital Christmas Gift Guide – simply take a quiz to reveal a range of gift ideas for you or your friends and fam! As Chadstone’s Ambassador and official Face of Christmas, you’ll also find my top picks and personal wish list revealed!

Beauty: There is no better gift than a beauty gift! Whether it’s gorgeous cosmetic or skin care products, a stylish cosmetic bag personalised with initials or a spa voucher – a gift that gives someone permission to pamper themselves is super thoughtful and will not disappoint.

 Home: Buying gifts that you can use for entertaining family and friends throughout the summer will be a crowd pleaser this Christmas! For inside the home, think about decorative items as a coffee table book, cheese board and candles. For outdoors – a champagne bucket will make for a gorgeous statement piece and is sure to be a talking point at your next summer cocktail evening.

 Family: When it comes to gifting for the family I always try and buy something that will get us out and about, or entertained at home, creating memories as a family. A picnic hamper is a great idea to encourage summer night and weekend adventures. A Polaroid camera is the perfect addition to ensure those memories are treasured forever.

 Fashion: Buying fashion focused gifts are my favourite kind of purchases and this list includes some of my top wish list items this Christmas! A good thing to keep in mind is the upcoming seasonal events – weekends away down the coast, polo and wedding season or even just a Sunday afternoon cocktail with friends. Think about colourful summer outfits and accessories to match – bags, shoes, jewels etc. An overnight bag and new beach towel is always a favourite at Christmas time!
