I for one absolutely ADORE everything about the holiday season, there’s so much joy in the air and you get to constantly hang out with your favourite people.
December is simply BRIMMING with fun events before finishing with a week of family and food – I honestly don’t understand how ANYONE can be grinchy about this time of year. It baffles me.
One thing I know stresses people out, is buying gifts. What to buy, leaving it too late and the expense of it all can seriously mess with stress levels. This makes me sad because buying presents should be FUN!
You get to choose things people you love will enjoy. Finding something you know someone will love and then seeing their face when they open it is actually priceless. But before you all decide you want to kill me for being so ‘Hallmark’ I should let you know that I am actually here to help ?
Keep reading to find a slew of options for all the lasses in your life and easy links so shopping is as easy as ‘add to cart’. You’re very welcome.
This gal is unashamedly girly. She loves pink and pretty things and swoons over Ryan Gosling on the reg. This girl is probably the best to buy for as she’ll gleefully screech as she opens her goodies.

Gifts for that little nomad…
