Gift Guide ~under $40~

We all have people in our lives who are really hard to buy for or have everything. I put this little guide together with these type of people in mind but made sure it was all things I would be happy to receive in my chrissie stocking....

Espirit Beach towels - these towel are so soft and huge! Perfect for the beach or pool. Currently $39.90 from Myer.

Glass House candles are the absolute bomb. I have bought them for so many of my girlfriends this christmas. Coconut Lime is my current favourite and they are available from Peter Alexander for $35.

I will always stand by my belief that people can never have too many pj's. Soho pj sets are always good quality and are only $30 (from Myer). Peter Alexander also has some really cute male boxer shorts at the moment for $30.

This Calendar from Rhianne of The Easily Distracted is filled with such lovely photography that it will look gorgeous in anyones home or office - approx $US12.15.

I am anxiously awaiting presents that I have bought off the internet to arrive and have my fingers crossed that they arrive by Christmas, I hope all your gift shopping is going well. I have two last little things to pick up this afternoon and I am all done.


  1. I never seem to put summer things on my Christmas list so it would be lovely to have a Christmas in Australia to feel it more appropriate!

    I hope to get all my shopping done tomorrow too, hope everything of yours arrives in time.

  2. I know what Cassie means! I had to stop and think about it for a minute... beach towels, for Christmas? We usually give pajamas to our boys, but they're thick, fleecy ones!

    Well done, Megan, for getting all that shopping done. I've still got some things to buy, and am looking forward to finally having our reno done so I can sit and wrap gifts by the fire in our lovely new room!

  3. My mind was just being blown by the fact that Aussies' get to sunbathe on Christmas...if they so desired. Lucky folk! :)

    You're way ahead of me in the Christmas shopping game. I have a few more to pick up, and am feeling a smidge stressed about that.

    Oh, and I love your picks. Especially the calendar!

  4. Great picks, especially love the candles, really cant go wrong there

  5. Oh yes this is a great guide! I love those beach towels and I adore Glasshouse candles. They smell amazing!

    Peter Alexander have the comfiest PJ's and I don't mind the Soho sets too.

    I adore the calender too of course!! x

  6. I love the pjs! None can have too many!! (:


  7. thank you so much for featuring my calender Megan :)

    Lovely list!

  8. I'm waiting for presents to arrive in the mail too! Beating the crowds by shopping online seems like a fantastic idea ... until you realise your presents may not arrive on time :/

    I hope yours come soon!
