Holiday Gift Guide 2017

With Christmas just over a month away it’s definitely time to look at that present list and get shopping! I’ve done about half of mine already but still stressing out on what to get everyone else left on my present list and I find posts like this really help me so I thought i’d go through some great gift ideas that are sure to be a winner on Christmas day! πŸ™‚

FUJIFILM Instax Mini 8 instant camera


These cameras are a great gift idea for just about anyone and you can pick these up for under $100. Perfect to capture the holiday season! I always go through so much film for mine during the holiday season and all the pictures go up on my fridge (which is getting pretty full).

QUAY X DESI Sunglasses in High Key Black Fade


I love these over-sized sunnies and are a great addition for any sunglasses lover you know! they also come in a smaller size which is great if you’re thinking these may look a little large. They are available on a number of different websites which is great as these tend to sell out on the Quay website fast!

Daniel Wellington Dapper Durham watch in Rose Gold


I find watches are always a great gift to give, especially a classic watch like this from Daniel Wellington. The quality of their watches are incredible and sturdy which for me is a must and I love the leather watch straps they use. I have partnered with Daniel Wellington to offer you a discount code (CHANTELLE15) for 15% off everything on danielwellington.comΒ from now through till December 31st, which can be used with their special offers as well as free worldwide shipping!!


Here’s some of their deals currently:

Black Friday (from Nov 23 to Nov 27)

– free watch strap with any watch purchase

– 25% off the Dapper series on top of my 15% off discount code (CHANTELLE15) which is an amazing deal!!


ChristmasΒ (running from now till Christmas except during Black Friday period)

– an extra 10% off when you order 2 items or more


Don’t forget to check out Daniel Wellington’s Instagram page for some inspiration πŸ™‚ and these watches make a great gift for self too! And with all those discounts, if you were thinking of picking one up, now is the time.

Marc Jacobs Enamored High-Shine lip lacquer lipgloss in Sugar Sugar


My favourite lip gloss ever!! it’s a thick formula, but not sticky, lasts ages and smells like peppermint!! what’s not to love!!

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette


Honestly can’t get enough of this palette!! I’m wearing it right now and the shades haven’t faded or moved at all since applying it this morning. This is a great palette for any makeup lover, whether they are just starting out in makeup or a pro, everyone will love this palette!


For more on this palette check out my review here.

As i’m writing this, this collection has just launched so most items are still in stock but that could well and truely change once this post goes up. I love the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick formula as it is pigmented, long lasting and isn’t overly drying on the lips and look at the shades and packaging on these!! Perfection! A must for any liquid lipstick addict you know!

Typo Daily Planner……or really anything from TYPO πŸ˜‰


I love using these little planners for work and uni as they are small enough to keep in my page but has a whole page for each day so have enough room for everything. And come on!! Look at that glitter! πŸ™‚

Everyone in Australia loves Mimco so these products are great presents as they always bring out new designs so these are fairly safe gifts. I love the quality of these and Mimco gifts are always a winner on Christmas day!

E.L.F Beauty Shield Magnetic Mask kit


If you’re buying for someone who loves skincare, pick this up for them. The holographic packaging is eye catching and the magnetic mask is a fun masking experience that’s for sure! While this mask felt very warm on the face felt great taking it off with the Magnet wand to remove the mask and left my face feeling so clean and soft!

Status Anxiety NORMA wallet in Black


Out of all the wallets I own, this is still my favourite. Status Anxiety is a great Australian brand that has amazing wallets and bags, suited for everyone. check them out! They also have AfterPay!!

Anything from the MAC Snowball Holiday Collection!


This set is now sold out but honestly anything from this collection will have any makeup lover super excited on Christmas day with the stunning packaging and high quality product that is MAC you can’t go wrong!

Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadow in Kitten Karma


These liquid eyeshadows will make any eye look pop which means they are perfect for the holiday season and new years eve! This is the only shade I have but I need them all. mini gifts are available at Stila and Mecca (although I can’t find them online at Mecca anymore so maybe they are just in store now). If you have tried these in store or own these you understand the hype around these, they are INCREDIBLE!!!

Colourpop Liquid Lipsticks……or pretty much anything from Colourpop!


Colourpop is a great inexpensive brand and the quality of all the products i’ve tried from them are amazing and highly recommend! I can’t get enough of their liquid lipsticks in particular but their pressed powder eyeshadows are also part of my daily makeup routine! perfect for if you want to put together a makeup kit for someone as a present!

Calvin Klein One Gold EDT 100ml


Scents are such a personal thing but if you’re around people enough you know what kind of scents they are into and this has been my go to everyday scent for the majority of the year! its a fresh, unisex scent that I think most people would love!

It is described as:

Fragrance notes include fig, neroli and vetiver. Middle Notes: Jasmine, iris. Base Notes: patchouli, woody notes.
A juicy fresh woody unisex fragrance that captures the golden allure of radiant youth. Fragrance notes include fig, neroli and vetiver.
The Clay Play face shaping palette from tarte is currently one of my most used palettes at the moment, I can’t stop using it! It has bronzing and contouring powders, eyeshadows and brow powders. This palette is perfect for travel or if you want a multifunctional palette! Available at Tarte and Sephora Australia.
You can never have enough makeup bags, am I right?
These makeup bags from Beat Bag are to die for! I love the design and colours and they have a mesh pocket and elastic holders to fit all your makeup and brushes! this is perfect to create a little makeup kit as a present or just on their own as we can always do with more makeup bags, especially when they look like this!!! πŸ™‚
Well I hope you now have plenty of ideas for Christmas gifts and let me know if you pick any of these up for yourself or gifts πŸ™‚

P.s all items in this guide were purchased myself or given to me as gifts from family except the Daniel Wellington watch, Which I was sent to include on my blog and Instagram. All my opinions are my own and I have worn the watch numerous times over the last few weeks and fully stand behind the product.
