Pretty little things


Stuff many a stocking with these fashion and beauty finds.

So many options, so little time – gifting dilemma is no longer a thing, except these days we’re spoiled for choice. So, a specifically-focused, thoughtfully-priced gift guide, you ask? Say no more.

Here we’ve listed down for you a shopping list for your nearest and dearest so all you gotta do is buy it, gift wrap it, and scribble your sweetest message along with it. Happy shopping!

For the minimalist

This friends only ever buys what she/he needs and is a zero-waste advocate, so make sure your present is cute and functional. This handy sling wallet lets them carry just the essentials: keys, wallet, maybe a lip balm – all in style.

For the Fashionable Friend

We all know better than to try to buy clothes for the chicest girl in the gang. If your secret santa is a fashion lover, your best bet is an accessory. Which begs the next question: which ones? Luckily, H&M has a set of 14 pairs of assorted earrings, because fashion girls know: options are everything.

For the One That Works Out

It’s no longer hard to search for fashionable and sporty finds, but if your sporty secret santa’s got limitations budget-wise, why not a pair of statement-making socks they can take from workout to lunch?

These bicycle-printed high-cut pair would look extra cute matched with short shorts.

For the Beauty Girl

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, local beauty brand Sunnies Face has been making many a beauty girl’s lipstick dreams come true.

For your beauty-loving friend, who we’re sure may already own a few tubes from the brand, get a limited edition kit that has color themes put together for every holiday face she needs to put together.

She’s a lady of leisure and spends her weekends in a bubble bath with her favorite music on, wine in hand, and book in the other.

Indulge your tita-est friend’s favorite pastime with an all-in-one set of all the pampering she needs (and wants). She’ll be having her best bath ever.
