What Nicky's Gifting This Year

Friendsmas lunches, work parties, kids' recitals and family events - it’s the most wonderful but certainly the busiest time of the year! Before you know it, you’ve remembered Elf on the Shelf but forgotten to organise gifts for your girlfriends, your in-laws and your significant other! Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered: from stocking stuffers to secret Santa surprises, here’s what I’m gifting this Christmas! 


With three little ones at home, we’re making the most of the Christmas magic while it lasts! House of Bimbi is my one stop shop for anyone who still believes in Santa. I love their carefully curated neutral essentials for expecting and new parents and cant go past these cute summer must-haves for poolside parties 
Christmas can be a challenging time of the year for some families, but it is also a chance to spread hope and generosity, if you are able to do so. This year, we’ve partnered with Lighthouse Care to help make a difference, and we invite you to support their incredible efforts too! From now until December 15th, you’re welcome to drop off toys and non-perishable foods at our James Street store to support Brisbane families in need. Find out more about their life-changing work here! 

With our Calexico Gifting Guide, the perfect present is just one click away! Here are my picks:
Get the indecisive girlfriend a gift voucher and join her for an unforgettable experience instore with us! Sip on champagne while she shops ‘til she drops or pour yourself a wine and browse through our online store together!
Fragrance is always a crowd pleaser – from sweet to sultry, you've just found the perfect secret Sant gift! I’m also loving the Zodiac eye masks we’ve just received in.
Handcrafted from the softest silk and hand painted with individual star signs,  UK designer Jessica Russel Flint created this for your co-worker who swears by her daily co-star message!
For the girl whose Spotify Wrapped exposed her addiction to Taylor Swift in all of her eras, I give you  Furbish Studio. There’s a hilarious cushion for your auntie who’ll be indulging in the vinos this holiday season, your twelve- going- on- 21 teenage niece and of course, a gift to yourself too!
On the hunt for a classic gift? You can never go wrong with a dainty personalised Maya Brenner Initial Necklace

If you’ve gifted your favourite guy one too many pairs of shoes to count, Loake’s Valet Box is the answer to all your gifting prayers! All he needs for impeccable shoe maintenance, in a gorgeous wooden box that won’t be an eyesore!
Sick of reminding him to be sun safe? For long days at the beach, I love this classy panama hat and this relaxed bucket hat.   

We can all agree that men are tricky to shop for – we've curated our 
foolproof favourites so the man who has everything can walk into the new year in style! 


In charge of Christmas Lunch this year? This is your sign to treat yourself to an early gift! Revamp your dinnerware with Mud Australia’s elegant and versatile handmade porcelain you’ll show off for years to come! Check out their handy gift guide and make sure you leave your browser tab open to drop a hint, or drop into their brand-new James Street store next time you’re in the area.

We all have an interior design fan in our lives, itching to redecorate the house once the Christmas tree is gone. Kelly Wearstler is THE place to shop for them! From cheeky to classy and eclectic to timeless, find the ultimate gift here 

Take some time to indulge yourself with delicious skin care and carefully crafted makeup products from Manasi7 this silly season. Pure, simple and sustainably produced natural beauty products, made in small batches to minimize waste. The perfect stocking stuffers you’ll be tempted to keep for yourself! 

Just across from Calexico, the entire team are regulars at Jocelyn’s Provisions on James Street where we pick up excellent coffee and delicious treats to share all year. In the lead up to Christmas, Jocelyn’s becomes a lifesaver – I buy all our family festive favourites online, sit back and enjoy the holidays! 
There’s nothing better than seeing eyes, young and old, light up this special time of year! Go forth and tick those gifts off so you can enjoy the festivities! Still unsure what to buy?
