Christmas Favourites

Advent Calendar

Advent calendars are huge during Christmas time. There’s your standard cardboard cartoon kind that are filled with chocolate, the ones made of fabric that have fun little knickknacks inside and there’s even beauty ones, where you get a new product every day. This may not be as extravagant as others but the mini house advent calendar is a great addition to any home this holiday season.

The wooden-style calendar includes 25 adorable houses, which you pull out to reveal the treat of the day. Although it is not prefilled, this gives you the opportunity to get a little creative and think of some personalised goodies for your friends, family or yourself. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of self-love! It is also fitted with a convenient hook so you can hang it anywhere you like.

Ceramic Decorative Christmas Tree

TK Maxx are well and truly killing the game this year. Their Christmas range is very different to what you see in many other department stores. They have a huge selection of Christmas mugs, decorations, cushions, homewares and heaps more. This shiny little Christmas tree ornament immediately stood out from everything else.

It’s the perfect decoration to pop on a coffee table or it could be a lovely addition to a dining room table centrepiece. The colouring is Christmassy enough, without being too over-the-top, so it won’t clash with the rest of your home decor. The best part is, it’s an absolute steal at just $7.95.

Peter Alexander Dachshund Cracker Pyjamas

Celebrating Christmas in Australia means that you can forget about the whole ugly sweater tradition. In 30 degree heat, a knit just isn’t an option, so thank goodness for Christmas pyjamas! While the majority of pyjamas online still seem to be all about that wintertime cosiness, the PJ King – Peter Alexander as always, has come through with the goods!

Their Christmas range covers everything from nighties, pyjama tops and bottoms to eye masks and undies. Although dachshunds aren’t the exactly the most festive of animals, who can resist a dog in Christmas attire! These adorable shorts are available in both men’s and women’s sizes and they come prewrapped in a matching Christmas cracker, so you can pop straight under the tree.

Too Faced Melted Matte in the Shade Lady Balls

It can be so hard to find that perfect shade of red; not too orange and not too berry. The melted matte liquid lipstick in the shade lady balls (aka. Christmas red) is the colour you should be rocking this holiday season. Let’s just say, there’s a reason why it sells out at this time of year!

This range is super long-wearing, so it will last through even the craziest of festivities. Like most liquid lipsticks, it is a slightly drying but the formula does contain avocado and vitamin E, so it’s pretty comfy in comparison to many other brands. Just be sure to exfoliate and moisturise beforehand and you’re all set!

Christmas Cards by Melsy’s Illustrations

As the years go by, Christmas cards seem to be less and less popular. Why make the effort of sending a card via snail mail, when you can write a generic text, chuck in a few emojis and get the same reaction, right? Definitely not. You’d be surprised how much a pretty card with a thoughtful message can mean to someone.

These beautifully illustrated cards are a great reason to put technology aside for 10 seconds and brighten someone’s day. Let’s be real, it’s always nice to open something other than a bill from the mailbox! The gorgeous designs are by Melsy’s Illustrations, who captures the holiday season perfectly, yet in such a unique way. The cards come in a pack of 20, made up of 4 different images, with simple messages that won’t take away from the one you choose to write.

Rustic Glam Wreath

An extravagant wreath is the dream but when you live in an apartment building, sometimes less is more. This simple wreath is rustic glam at its best. The tangled twigs and pine cones paired with glittery bows and gold detailing create a natural, yet festive look.

Although it’s quite different from traditional wreaths, which are decorative the whole way around, the visible branches make it all the more unique. It may be small but it will definitely spread the Christmas joy!
