Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide for 2013

With less than a week to go (yes, in the single digits)... If your anything like me you've left your presents (and coincidentally your blog gift guide) to the last minute Here is your gift guide if you're still unprepared.

Disney Princess Forever - PJs

Yes, this is freakin' cute. I'm pretty sure every girl had a soft spot for Disney Princesses growing up and clearly the nostalgia still exists for me. The PJ set has 2 designs Ariel from The Little Mermaid and Snow White. This is the perfect gift as it comes with it's own gift box with the design being the same as the shorts and part of the shirt.

Price: $29
Sizes: 8 to 18
Where: Target

Miss Links Melbourne

Cufflinks for the ladies... I love this idea. It's a great way to add that bit of oomph to the classic work shirt (which can be worn as casual wear). The only 'catch' with this is that you need a French Cuff Shirt to wear cufflinks. Miss Links Melbourne have a ton of designs available ranging from the simple (my preference) to the blinged out. I was lucky to receive this set, that has a bit of subtle bling (ie. Swarovski crystals) in my favourite colour, blue. Thanks to a gorgeous gift box, it makes a great Christmas present BUT it makes an even better back to work present as I don't know a single lady with a set of cufflinks.

Price: $180
Style: Annabelle - Sapphire Bows
Where: Miss Links Melbourne

Benefit - Under My Spell Noelle

How pretty are these brushes? I originally spotted these back in July at the launch of Colour Theory which is exclusive to Australia and super affordable.

Lush Goodies

Went to the Lush Blogger Event last week to check out what was instore for Christmas... and here are my picks! My personal favourite is the limited edition Snow Fairy shower gel, it smells delicious and super glittery which is pretty much the single deciding factor in the 'favourite' title - it smells that good. It is a overly sweet scent so it might not be to everyone's taste.

I also had to chuck in a mention of Golden Fun, it's gold and it is a 4 in 1 bathtime play-doh. Play with it, use it as a body wash/shampoo, bubble bath and even to wash your clothes - fun!

One Direction USB

To be clear I'm not a directioner... despite that, I was very stoked to see this 8gb USB for selling less than $5 at Officeworks I actually needed one, this was the cheapest and had the added bonus of proving my immaturity. The perfect gift for the huge fan, closeted fan and haters.
