The sun is shining, the pohutukawas are in full bloom and Christmas is just around the corner. With only two weeks to go, here is our AGD last minute Christmas gift guide. Everything here has either been tried, tested and loved by us this year, or are items that we are looking forward to trying. Whether you have completed most of your gift shopping and just need those couple of last bits and pieces, or are still to start, I hope this list is helpful.
These are top of my wish list. If you live in a home without a bath, or are just not a fan of soaking in the tub, you may feel you are missing out on that little bit of luxury that comes with all the beautiful bath products that are available. Shower Bombs or Shower Steamers (not to be confused with bath bombs) are the latest way indulge your senses, and create a luxurious spa experience at home. These beautiful blends of pure essential oils are created specifically to turn your shower into a truly luxurious and therapeutic experience. Made with vibrant smelling pure essential oils, these shower bombs elevate your showers to a whole new level. Yum! Find them here.
Flox Keep Cup
My number one favourite go to keep cup. The stainless steel double walls keep hot drinks hot, without getting hot on the hands. Super sturdy and durable, I have had mine all year and it still looks as good as new. This limited edition reusable cup boasts a full colour 3D printed FLOX artwork while also exhibiting an array of functional features. The open/close lid and slimline vessel shape also make for an easy travel experience. Presented in a deluxe sliding box, this product is the perfect gift for you and the planet. The perfect pressie for anyone who like hot or cold drinks on the go. The Flox stainless steel reusable cup can be purchased here.
Kearose Scented Candle
Triple scented soy candles that are made here in Aotearoa and come in a variety of stunning scents. I love to burn Coconut and Lime to get those summer feels – light, airy, fresh and breezy. It’s a refreshing fusion of zesty citrus, creamy coconut and smooth Tahitian vanilla invigorates and uplifts. Also available in many other delightful scents including Pine & Spruce for a festive Christmas experience. Shop the range here.
The Storyteller – Tales of Life and Music by Dave Grohl
No last minute Christmas gift guide would be complete without a book, and this is my recommendation for Christmas 2021. While I haven’t had the chance to read it (I am next in the queue for our household’s copy) I’m a sucker for rockstar autobiographies, and adore Dave Grohl’s down to earthness and what seems to be genuine joie de vivre. With reviews like ‘By the end of the book, you feel like you have gained a new friend, a kindred spirit of sorts. The most important thing to me in a memoir like this is authenticity of voice and Grohl delivers that here in spades. The intent with which he lives his life—the focus on savoring each moment, not taking a single second of this wildly amazing ride for granted—strikes home; it is an ideal that does not feel disingenuous but is simply the core of a pretty amazing man. A phenomenal musician. A natural born storyteller.’ Support local bookshops and buy it here.
Dark Chocolate Dipped Mango from Trade Aid
The perfect way to enjoy chocolate guilt free – hey, it’s mostly fruit! We love these decadent pieces of dried mango, dipped in premium organic dark chocolate. The perfect stocking stuffer or last minute gift. Buy here and while you’re there check out the fab range of super cute Christmas ornaments that you can feel good about buying.
