Gimme gifts for her

Maybe some of ye smug bitches have your gifts wrapped up and ready to go. If you do, well done – you may rest up with your hot ports. For the rest of us looking for inspiration, here’s a little help.

the flamboyant gift

The best thing about Christmas (beside goodwill and peace for all) is the festive flea markets that are popping up around the country. The mammy and daddy of all these is the Dublin flea market (starts 7th Dec at the Point), which literally has something for everyone. Take these fabulous Grace Jones earrings from Kiki na Art, pull up to the bumper baby and let your wild friend live her vie en rose.

the fashion gift

All that glitters may not be gold, but who cares when everyone will be transfixed by these boots. Too good to giveaway – sassy snakeskin YASSSS!

the beauty gift

You can’t go wrong with a  classic. This newly packaged Touche éclat from Yves Saint Laurent is a lovely little stocking filler. This world-famous, take-anywhere pen-brush is perfect for highlighting and refreshing make-up. The secret’s in the tiny light particles and mineral extracts which create a healthy, natural glow – light, luminosity and radiance at the click of a button.

the eco gift

Next gen skincare is all about hyaluranics, AHAs, Retinols etc which can be SUPER harsh on your skin. Waters + Wild have stripped everything back with this serum made up of organic evening primrose oil and healing essential oils: neroli for well being, lavender for natural antiseptic qualities, frankincense for healing and fennel for purity. This serum will soothe not strip, which is great news for the skin. What a perfect pressie.

the Irish label gift

Irish label Theo + George believe in the ethics of buying well but buying less. Every piece on their site is exquisitely made, and made to last. This bomber is no exception, made with the most gorgeous diamond quilted metallic fabric with chest pocket detailing, and lengthened sleeves for a modern look and fit.

the culinary gift

If you’re looking for an offering for the culinary gal, this architectural egg cup will nestle her googy in style. Based on individual cityscapes you can travel the world every morning with Eastern, Classical and Russian styled buildings. Sadly the golden egg is not included.
