Christmas Gift Guide

Although Christmas is so much more than gifting presents, it can be lovely to share a pressie with your nearest and dearest.

Here are my must-have gifting ideas to help you spoil the ones you love. 

1. Coveted Impression Necklace

Coveted is a New Zealand company based in Wellington. They help you craft beautiful, one-of-a-kind impression necklaces. I worked with them earlier this year, to create a white-gold necklace that features Cooper, Jonty and a third pendant for our wee Felix. We scanned his small little palm and engraved this print onto the third pendant. This necklace is very special to me and I’m so happy to be able to wear all the boys close to my heart.

Jewellery is like a biography. A story that tells the many chapters of life. With Coveted, you can create an impression from your fur babies paw print, your children’s fingerprints, something from nature like a shell to remind you of a special place. You can even use a family heirloom like your Mum’s engagement ring, pressed into the wax to create a sentimental piece to cherish forever.

They sell their impression kits for $99 which comes with everything you need to create a beautiful impression which can then be cast into any precious metal. Gemma was so fab to work with. A+++ Christmas pressie gift idea!

2. Hot Pool Experience

Sometimes the best pressies are an experience – a little family holiday! The Romanos LOVE visiting the hot pools. So how about a voucher for Hanmer Springs or the snazzy new Opuke pools in Methven!

3. Relaxing Facial & Spa Treatment 

Let’s be honest, you can’t beat a relaxing facial or spa massage. A voucher from Nicola Quinn Beauty & Day Spa is the ultimate present for the person in your life that deserves some R&R this Christmas. My go to Facial is the O Cosmedics Peel – but the Ginger&Me Mindfulness Facial is also fabulous. Otherwise, you can’t go wrong with a dollar value and letting your giftee choose their treatment.

4. Pic’s Really Good Recipe book – with Pic’s and Friends

There are more than 60 enticing recipes provided by popular cooks from around the world who love Pic’s Peanut Butter…. including me!  From a simple banana and peanut butter smoothie bowl, to stir-fries, curries, and sweet treats like emy Kumara fudge, that will have you rushing to the kitchen to try them out.

5. Susie’s Picnic Bag

Nothing beats a kiwi summer picnic. But what makes them even better? An epic picnic bag! My fav is Susie’s

6. Sunscreen

If your loved ones are getting outdoors over the summer holidays, make sure they slip, slop, slap and wrap! Suntegrity is passionate about sun care that not only protects from harmful UVA/UVB rays, but also promotes the long-term health of your skin and body.

7. Country Road Zipper Beach Towel

I’m sorry, what am blimmin good idea is this! This groovy style features a handy zip pocket. Hello best beach towel ever!

8. Glow Cloth

The Glow Cloth is the OG of The Glow Cloth range and your secret to removing all kinds of makeup using nothing but water. Made from ultrafine microfibres that when wet are designed to lift and remove all makeup with ease.

9. Active Wear

Fearless is an awesome shop down in beautiful Wanaka. Owned and run by women, for women, their aim is to create a luxurious space and offer health and well-being inspiration to our sisters through a wide range of high-end, comfortable and beautiful items. I am loving one of their labels – Alexandra.

10. For Him 

It’s hard enough shopping for girls…men can be a blimmin nightmare! I stumbled across this super cool store called Housekeepers. Located in Oamaru, they have the most epic range of gifts. Especially for the boys in our life. p.s they also have a marvellous range of gifts for your mini-mes too!

11. Treasure Box

I always find something I LOVE in Treasure Box. They offer a fab range of women’s fashion, shoes, bags, sunglasses… the list goes on. So whether you are shopping for a fashionista or are need of a summer / Christmas outfit price up, they have lots of great gifting options! 

Last but not least…
