Last minute gifts

Did Christmas creep up on us this year, or do we say this at this time every year? Either way, this last week before the big day can be quite hectic as everyone tries to finish off things they have been putting off all year, add to the fact the kids are on school holidays and you need to purchase endless amounts of gifts for anyone you have encountered throughout the year!

We have a solution that might ease the stress a little this week this week, some fantastic shopping pieces that will look great under the tree with your name on it. We all need a few ‘Santa’ gifts to open on Christmas morning…

#1 Channel some tropical vibes with the Aloha Pineapple drink set from Maxwell Williams, perfect for summery cool mocktails for all to enjoy, and such a lovely centrepiece to your Christmas buffet!

#2 Scrunch buckets, what a great idea! Easy to pack endless sandcastles while on holiday, or even to stash in the glove box for a thirsty pooch!

#3 Animal inspired décor will never go out of style, especially in on-trend block colours, like this stunning ebony horse head from White Moose in the Sheraton on display at The Address, Point Cook. But the rose gold cow skull definitely makes a statement for those who like a little bling!

#4 Probably makes sense to get yourself one of these Vindalso trolleys from Ikea to go with your pineapple drink dispenser, perfect for the alfresco, easy to move around, or maybe stay still while someone rolls it to you!

#5 Artwork doesn’t have to cost a bomb, some of the best effects are created with non-traditional pieces, or by buying contemporary prints. This striking monotone collection from Norsu Interiors in the Matisse on display at Berwick Waters, Clyde North look great when mounted together, or when time for a change can be split up into various rooms.
