JustSoChristmas Day 4
Christmas is fast approaching and so is the shopping madness that occurs every year. In my opinion, giving gifts is way better than receiving, I just love seeing peoples reactions to opening up their gifts! But finding the “perfect” present for family and close friends can be difficult at times. So I decided to share a Christmas gift guide for the girls in your life, some of the gifts are more directed towards teenagers whereas others are for any age. These gifts are more on the pricey side, but they are meant to be for those looking to really treat someone, with an extra special gift this year.

Emma Carey an Australian Influencer, who is also known as The Girl Who Fell From The Sky. Became a paraplegic after a freak skydiving accident, she was told that she would never walk again. 5 years later Emma is walking and is sharing the real and raw reality of what life is like after her accident. Emma has released two gorgeous stamped necklaces, both styles have the same quote “If you can you must” both are made out of 100% recycled Australian sterling silver. Each necklace is also handmade and individually stamped, so each design will be slightly unique and a little bit wonky, kind of like us. The necklaces are made in Melbourne, Australia by the family-owned business – Ernest & Joe. Either of the necklaces would be the “perfect” gift for anyone that’s gone through a hard time recently or is needing a little inspiration!
PLAN A GIFT
Sometimes experiences are better than materialistic things. Plan out a special day for the recipient, is there a certain activity or going to a workshop they have always wanted to do? Or perhaps they have always dreamt of seeing their favourite singer live? It all depends on the person your gifting to and the budget you set. This would be the “perfect” gift for those who prefer experiences over things.
