Christmas shopping is BLOODY HARD. So we've teamed up with Afterpay to make your life easier, by just handing you a platter of gifts that'll leave the spesh folk in your life super impressed. Btw - festive spending got your wallet screaming in fear? Afterpay means you can pay in 4 instalments instead of one big chunk, so you can give the gifts you really wanna this Xmas. They've got more gift guides for ya on site, check 'em out HERE.

Buying for you S.O is insanely hard. They’re usually the person you love most in the world aside from your fam, and you know all the in’s and out’s of their life – which should make it easier to buy for them, but actually just puts the pressure on at level 100.

Thing is, there’s stuff every gal in your life will absolutely adore (well, 80% chance minimum) and we’re here to help you out, so she’s not doing that fake-smile when she opens her pressie.

GO-TO SKINCARE EVERYDAY HEROES GIFT PACK

Step Away From The Gift Soap, Here’s What Your GF Really Wants This Xmas

Go-To is Zoe Foster-Blake‘s skincare line – you know, hilarious gal, married to equally hilarious dude Hamish Blake, has amazingly adorable and hilarious children Sonny and Rudy? Well, Rudy is a literal baby and therefore we are unsure if she’s going to be hilarious. But we feel positive she will be. ANYWAY. Zoe’s an ex-beauty editor and knows her shit when it comes to skincare. Her beauty line consistently receives high praise from big-name peeps, so getting your lady this set – which features everything you need to get your skincare routine in check – is a good bet.

LACK OF COLOR MAKE YOUR OWN SPENCER BOATER

Step Away From The Gift Soap, Here’s What Your GF Really Wants This Xmas

A classic straw hat is a never-fail, and Lack Of Colour are the Aussie brand for them. They’re worn by all of the style set, so trust me when I say your bb will loooove one.

ZANUI MONSTERA LEAF FRAMED ART PRINT

Step Away From The Gift Soap, Here’s What Your GF Really Wants This Xmas

Art is always a good gift, as long as you get your ~special lady~ something that works with the decor in her home. Have a sneaky squiz of the art she already has, then buy something that works in with that. If she doesn’t have any art at all, make sure whatever you get her is simple and understated – that’s a safe bet.

SOL SANA @ TUCHUZY APRIL SLIDES

Step Away From The Gift Soap, Here’s What Your GF Really Wants This Xmas

Everyone needs more summer sandals, and these Sol Sana slides work in perfectly with most trends – black sandals are a safe bet, too. You can wear them to work, on the weekends with cut-offs, pretty much anywhere.

RELIQUIA JEWELLERY @ THE ICONIC SPIRAL HOOP EARRINGS

Step Away From The Gift Soap, Here’s What Your GF Really Wants This Xmas

These earrings were the ones to own in 2017, so there’s a pretty solid chance they’ll be frothed over if you gift them to your S.O. They’re the perfect balance between subtle and statement.

TARTE @ SEPHORA CLAY PLAY FACE SHAPING PALETTE

Step Away From The Gift Soap, Here’s What Your GF Really Wants This Xmas

When it comes to makeup, the golden rule is to stick to neutrals – unless you know the kind of colours and brands your girlfriend loves (aka. she’s hinted to you 4,000 times that she specifically wants the Kat von D lipstick in Sinner) your safe space to play in is neutral palettes. There’s no such thing as too many nude eyeshadows, and this kit has those, plus three great bronze tones for contouring.

RUNNING BARE BEYOND STATUS QUO CROP TOP & BEYOND STANDARD TIGHT

Step Away From The Gift Soap, Here’s What Your GF Really Wants This Xmas

Trend-driven athleisure is usually spenno, so buying some for your gf means she gets to feel hot as hell whenever she’s working out – or when she’s just mooching around the house… going to brunch… yeah we’re all pretty much wearing athleisure as normal-clothes these days, so it’s pretty much like buying her a fresh weekend outfit.

Found the perfect gift in this list? The best thing about all of these is you can buy ’em with Afterpay and fork out the cash in 4 smaller instalments – which skips out on having to pay in one hit. They’ve also got loads more gift guides on their site, if you’re deep in the Chrissy shoppping zone.

Oh, and if you’ve spotted something in here you’d like for yourself – why not let Afterpay be your wingman, and forward this lil’ list on to your own S.O? Hehehe.
