So you’ve missed the cut off date for online shopping and you actually have to hit the shops to do your Christmas shopping IRL. It’s your own fault and we both know it. Lucky for you, we’ve teamed up with Macarthur Square so you can find everything you need in one place with this nifty gift guide. You can thank us later.

For The Beauty Queen

Stunna Lip Paint By Fenty | Sephora

There’s nothing a girl wants more than a lipstick that doesn’t come off after 5 minutes of wear. Fenty’s ‘Stunna’ lip paint is a 12-hour liquid lipstick that actually lasts. Super bold and handpicked by Ri Ri herself, we’re telling you now, gifting this will earn you some serious brownie points.

For The Bookworm

Big Little Lies By Liane Moriarty | Book Face

Yes, we know everyone has seen the TV show (and if you haven’t you need to, ASAP), but not everyone has read the book (and they need to). Almost better than the HBO hit, this is one book you can’t put down, and is the perfect easy read for summer.

For The Fitness Freak

Alta HR Fitness Wristband By Fitbit | Rebel Sport

FYI Fitbits are still a thing and you shouldn’t knock ‘em till you try ‘em—they’re actually fab. Tracking your heart rate, activities, exercise and sleep, anyone who thinks their body is a temple will be completely obsessed.

For The Foodie

Baccaret Spiraliser | House

Any real foodie should own a spiralizer. If they don’t, they’re not really a foodie. Just sayin’….Stalk their kitchen collection then gift them with this cooking necessity if it’s missing on their shelf.

For The Gamer

Deathadder Overwatch Gaming Mouse By Razer | EB Games

Apparently, every gamer needs a gaming mouse. Update your mate’s old one or treat them to something they obvs don’t know they need if they haven’t got one. Razer is our pick, with an ergonomic design so your hand doesn’t get sore, ya know.

For The Music Lover

QuietComfort Wireless Over-Ear Headphones By Bose | JB Hi-Fi

These bad boys might cost a small fortune but you’ll be jealous you didn’t buy them for yourself. Famous for a reason (yes, they’re practically famous), any true music fan will be living their best life. Did we mention they’re noise cancelling?

For The Oh-So Difficult One

Kindle | Target

Life is legit easier with a Kindle, even if you love real books. You don’t have to worry about losing your page or keeping your S/O up with the bedside lamp, and it’s pretty much the best travel companion. Buy one for any bookworm and we promise they’ll come ‘round to it.

For The Homebody

Tallo Throw | Country Road

You can never have too many throws so treat your fave homebody to Country Road’s super simple yet super chic Tallo Throw, complete with a tassel trim. Made from 100% cotton, they will use it 24/7 for looks alone.

For The Vegan

Elixir Body Oil By Mecca Cosmetica | Mecca Maxima

When in doubt, Mecca is always the answer. No matter what you choose we’re 99% sure they will love it, but we can’t look past the luxe AF elixir body oil. Boasting vitamin A, B and E (oh, and it’s 100% vegan), this bad boy feels like silk and melts into the skin for total rehydration.

For The Fashionista

Circle Basket Sling Bag | Sportsgirl

If you know anything about fashion, you’ll know that straw bags are trending RN. Sportsgirl (of all places!) have the perfect woven circle bag that would look fab on anyone’s Instagram. Talk about #fashtastic.

For The Booze Hound

Silicone Giant Ice Tray | David Jones

Fact: no Negroni is complete without a giant ice ball. If you’re booze lovin’ (read: Negroni lovin’) mate wants to make their own cocktails at home, we can almost guarantee they’re missing giant ice cubes of the sphere variety. Treat them and they might treat you. With a Negroni, obvs.
