The Christmas season is upon us – which means some gifting is probably going to be involved.
Sometimes it can be a challenge finding a couple of cool presents for those people in your life so we’ve picked out ten stocking stuffers that include some of our fave things – stationery, beauty, footwear, cookies and home accessories that are all $35 and under so friendly on your wallet!
Moustache’s Mo Dollars
If you haven’t tried Auckland’s top cookie destination Moustache – you are missing out, trust me. Their chocolate, oreo and marshmallow is my treat go-to and the vegan options both in milkshakes and cookies are second to none. The growing menu of treats is evident which is why picking up some of their Mo Dollars (vouchers) is an easy way to get spending on their delicious cookies, dough, candles and cakes.
Kikki K Gift Sets
Kikki K are known for their beautiful stationery and with these cute gift seats, it’s easy to share their great stationery around. While it’s hard to pick what to spend your moolah on (cause there’s so many good options!), the Embrace Gratitude Gift Set that includes a gratitude journal, refillable pen and kindness cards, all in a cute gift box for $29.90 that would be a steal this Christmas.
Glassons Pinewood Mirror
Glassons new homeware range has a bunch of great finds at an affordable price including this pinewood mirror number that will sit nicely on a dresser or table alike for only $19.95. They also have festive lights, floor cushions, planters, bamboo glass teapots and mugs to suit all your needs.
Forget your average jandals which can be uncomfortable, slides are the way to go (in my books anyway!). I’m loving these comfy Fila Slides – the black ones are my pick. They are available in white, black, navy, gold, pink, red, mint and holographic to suit anyones wardrobe. Grab them from Factorie online or in-store for $34.95.
Ruby 2018 Diary
It’s no secret that Ruby come out with a killer Diary every year and their 2018 edition is no different, the NZ designer have teamed up with NZ artist Marcus Watson to create this rose gold-edged book that also features zodiac illustrations. They’ve also got wall planners, stickers and key rings to complete the creative collection. The diary retails at $35 in store and online.
Cotton On Beach Towels
The weather’s heating up which means a season full of slip, slop and slapping at the beach. You’ll easily catch some rays with Cotton On’s range of beach towels including rad designs by Chupa Chups, a rainbow Nirvana print and flamingos – all for $34.99 RRP.
Do you ever walk into a Lush store and want it all because it smells so divine? The beauty of Lush’s gift sets as they come perfectly pre-wrapped (in a ribbon and everything) and have a mixture of devine treats, all at different values to suit your budget. My picks are the Sweet Christmas and Golden Wonder ($21.90 each) plus the reusable Magic Wand bubble bar ($12.90) are all easy stocking stuffer winners.
NYX Go to Goodies Set
NYX is a great drug store brand that has products you can rely on – grab one of their ‘Go-To Goodies’ sets for $28 from Farmers for a cute kit of a 4 shadow eye palette, matte lipstick and lip liner.
Secret Message Candle
Australian-based Peppermayo stocks some of the coolest novelty items that can make great gifts – 54 Celcius’ Secret Message Candle, nicely gift boxed is a A+ treat for a candle lover, available on their website now for $25.
Last but certainly not least, you need a place to put all the beauty and life essentials. You can grab from a great range cosmetic cases from Cotton On’s brands. Slogan and glitter cosmetic cases and a three-pack of sized travel cases are available from Typo and Cotton On’s website for $29.99.
