It’s that time of the year again! With Christmas just 2 (TWO!) weeks away, we have complied a couple of our favourite stocking stuffers from footwear to 2019 planners to a F.R.I.E.N.D.S collection and other rad things in between. What’s even better as these picks are all $50 and under so that you can shop smart (and exit those chaotic malls quickly) this December.
I’m a big fan of stationery (especially a beautifully designed one) and need to have at least one planner for the year. Kick start the new year with a fresh planner for Twenty Nineteen. RUBY’s 2019 Diary is in collaboration with illustrator GATTOBRAVO, inspired by multiple locations across the world. RRP$25 online and in stores.
Sink into this five-piece Mini Masks Set from Origins, available at Mecca. The (RRP) $44 box set includes their Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, Intensive Overnight Mask, Original Skin Rose Clay Mask, GinZing Peel-Off Mask and the 10 Minute Mask to Rescue Problem Skin. The Limited Edition gift is in store and online at Mecca now.
There is so many products to choose from in store or online – if you’re after a sweet-smelling variety pack, the Christmas Candy Box could be the one. It includes the classic bath bombs – Butterbear and Luxury Lush Pud with the return of Xmas favourite, the Snow Fairy shower gel, all for $42.90 (RRP). If you’re after a little extra pressie (for someone else or yourself!) the Ariana-Grande-inspired Goddess bath bomb is a great option.
F.R.I.E.N.D.S by Cotton On
How You Doin’? If you’re a F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan like me, you’ll be happy to get wind of Cotton On’s new collection. The range all retails for $30 and under with t-shirts, phone cases, notebooks, towels, mugs, socks and even a pencil case in the mix.
As we get prepared for beach weather (even though the rainy days this week doesn’t feel like it!), slides are always a good option. The Adidas Originals Adilette Slides are available in black, white and navy so there’s an option for anyone on your gift list! (rrp$50)
Do Your Own Thing Pin
I’m a big fan of pins – they’re a simple and cool accessory for your clothing, bags and anything really! Plus they also make a rad stocking stuffer or gift! This cute quote enamel pin, ‘Do Your Own Thing’from Kikki K is an easy pick at $9.90(RRP).
While window shopping the other month, I walked into a Ikoiko store and was pleasantly surprised to find a huge range of all things pop culture! From cards to notebooks to posters with an artists impression of the likes of Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Post Malone and Chance the Rapper – head over to Ikoiko for your unique gift (and perhaps grab something for yourself!)
A voucher…I know, hear me out! This is a cool gift voucher, that can even be sent via email for family and friends who aren’t in the same town as you. The Auckland-based website boasts over 858k products and cheap shipping so there is loads on offer! Perhaps you’ll choose a book to read in the summer sun (I’m currently reading Crazy Rich Asians after seeing the movie), a novelty slogan mug, POP!’s galore or browse their many sales – gaming, toys, beauty, TV and more…
