The Christmas round-up: gifts for her

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and by that we mean it’s the time when you start Christmas shopping and realise that there are a bunch of people you need to buy for that you actually don’t know as well as you thought. What to do? If a special lady in your life has been playing coy about what she hopes to find under the tree this year, fear not – we’ve rounded up a rad selection of gifts for every type of gal.

The style maven
For the girl who never puts a sartorial foot wrong, we’ve rounded up a few choice gift options that she will love. Fashion with a conscience is always a winner, so pick her up a TOMS tote – for every bag purchased, TOMS will help provide a safe birth for a mother and baby in need. Sunglasses are another great gift, and we’re digging the Ollo shades from EPØKHE (you can check them out at the Byron Bay boutique), then go one step further with a glorious chain from Sunny Cords. For the stylish beach goer, shift your eyes to local labels like Marloe Swimwear – the new Endless pieces are pretty dreamy. SIR the Label is feminine summer dream, so grab your girl something breezy and adorable like this ruffle mini dress. Nice Martin is making some killer threads at the moment – we suggest the Celine jumpsuit for a dose of instant cool-girl cred. For some effortless style, you can’t go wrong with Mister Zimi, the Hvar Ivy Jumpsuit is a fabulous choice, or treat her melon to one of the glorious straw hats from Lack of Colour. For a dash of linen goodness, The Bare Road is the go-to, or she’s more into silk then jump to Tallebudgera Valley’s The Silk Laundry for a peek – the 90s silk slip dress is perfect. Good accessories are always a hit, and Petite Grand make some of the prettiest jewels going around – check out the collection online. Bralette’s from Bimby + Roy are a great vibe, and if she’s not afraid to stand out from the crowd, these Lego-inspired bags from Agabag will certainly make a statement.

The gourmand
We all know the way to her heart is through her stomach, so if you’ve got a lady in your life who loves to eat we know just what to get her. For the hostess with the mostess, a Sunnylife cocktail party kit is a summer staple – she can whip up the coolest drinks in town with this tropical-themed extravaganza. If she fancies a tipple or two, The Wine Gallery’s wine subscription service is a solid option – there are a bunch of personalised packages available. Myer’s Christmas Giftorium is a great place to pick up some delicious edible and personalised presents that won’t cost a bomb. If she’s into gin, then get her the ultimate gin experience with a distillery tour of Brookie’s Gin in the heart of the Byron Bay rainforest. Why not treat her to a packet of Tim Tams or a jar of Nutella that literally has her name on it? Perfection.

The beauty babe
Ladies who love to pamper are so fun to buy for! We’ve picked a few things that are bound to get her giddy. Go-To skincare is an absolute godsend, and to keep that lifesaving vibe going the company has a range of rad gift sets to choose from. A trip to the Clean Beauty Market in Nobby Beach will get you sort, with every natural, cruelty-free non-toxic makeup brand you can imagine. Make like a celeb and hook her up with the Insta-famous Hi Smile kit – it will have her pearly whites looking brighter than ever. Mecca Maxima always delivers the goods, and this year’s Christmas crackers are no exception – the likes of Too Faced, Mecca MAX, Lancome and more have all come on board with the goods. If she really gives a damn about how she looks and feels, then BEAR’s bespoke vitamins will have her glowing.

The outdoorsy type
Got a sweaty Betty on your hands? Active ladies tend to know their stuff, which can make gifting hard, but these presents are sure to come in handy and put a smile on her dial. If she spends a lot of time in the water, the Cancer Council’s ugly Xmas rashie is an ideal option – the designs are kitschy-cute and the money raised from sales goes towards fighting cancer. Beach babes will love this Tulum wicker basket from Posse – it’s a great size and looks damn good to boot. If she’s an ocean girl, then the navy star surf leggings by Salt Gypsy are a great gift, and they also double as yoga pants. Activewear is something she’s guaranteed to use, so grab a voucher for D+K and let her go nuts (or pick out some cool stuff if you know what she likes). Runners will go bananas over these baller Nike Air VaporMax shoes with metallic panels – the running shoe holy grail of both practical and visually appealing. The TomTom Touch is a nice alternative to the mega-popular Fitbit, tracking vital fitness signs around the clock.

The girl who has everything
There’s one every year – the woman who seems to have everything she could possibly want. Not to worry, because we have tracked down some cool stuff that will please these ladies. The HP Sprocket pocket photo printer is a dreamy little device that allows you to print photos from your phone on the go, akin to Polaroids but way more affordable. How about gifting your lady with a cool experience? Something like an Only T workshop is a bit left of centre, or go for a bulk-show voucher from The Arts Centre Gold Coast for a heady dose of culture. For some local goodness, The Borrowed Nursery in Miami is gifting heaven – you can grab a gift voucher or choose a rad plant and add on cool products like Posie Candles. If you’re totally stuck, Insta-famous Rupi Kaur’s new book The Sun and Her Flowers has been flying off the shelves and is packed with beautiful poetry.
