If your girl likes lingerie, then this is a great gift. Lingerie is typically hard to pick, so it will really show her that you understand and know her. If you don’t know her cup size, opt for a wireless bralette, which usually run in just three sizes: small, medium or large. Alternatively, you can take a sneaky peek at one of the bras she already owns. The size will be written on a white tag on the back strap.

A bikini

Summer is here, and there’s nothing better than kicking off the beach season with a brand new, smoking hot bikini. These three options are some the hottest trend pieces this season. Unwrapping one of these on Christmas morning is guaranteed to bring a smile to her face.

Decor accessories

Does your girl love home and interior design? Is she always trying to make the house look nicer? Then why not get her some cool accessories for the home?

A designer bag

If you have the cash, a designer bag is the way to go. Don’t sweat, because these options are all under $500. Handbags are used every day and often act as a status symbol. If she’s been talking about upgrading or hasn’t bought a new bag in a while, then one of these will be so appreciated. Before buying, think about the colours she usually wears and buy something to match. Don’t buy her a black bag if she usually wears brown.

Tech accessories

If she loves her Galaxy phone or is a little obsessive over her iPad, then a cool tech accessory could be the perfect gift. A phone case, tablet cover or laptop sleeve are practical gifts that she’ll use every day. Plus, she’ll think of how awesome you are every time she sees it.

A suede skirt

Suede skirts are one of the hottest trend pieces for the season. They’re all over fashion blogs and street-style Instagrams. Buying her one of these shows her that you know what’s in style and that you understand her interest in fashion.

Jewellery storage

Are you dating an accessories queen? Rather than buying her a bunch of new jewellery to add to her massive collection, why not get her a creative place to store it all. These jewellery storage solutions are just as beautiful as the jewellery you put in them.

A party dress

Party season has just started, so your girl will be looking for a new party dress. Get her something in a neutral colour like black, white or grey so she can wear it a few times without people noticing. When choosing the style of dress for her, think about her assets. If she has great legs, you can get something with a shorter hem line. If she has great shoulders get her something that lets them show. If she likes to keep a tan, try buying her something in white to show it off.

Running accessories

For sporty girls, you can’t go wrong with some new running accessories. A set of wireless headphones, a sports armband for her phone or a fitness tracker are perfect presents for the girl that likes to stay active.

An eye shadow palette

If you’re with a creative girl who loves her makeup, get her an eyeshadow palette. Cult makeup brands like Kat Von D, Tarte and Marc Jacobs Beauty have only recently become available in Australia. It’s likely that your girl has lusted over these eyeshadow brands for a long time, so this is the perfect gift idea.


It can be really hard to pick perfume for a woman, even if she is your partner. Unless you know what she’s wearing now or the types of base scents she prefers, it’s a tough task. Stick to the classic scents that have stood the test of time. Marc Jacobs Daisy, Ralph by Ralph Lauren or Jlo Glow are fresh or floral scents that are non-offensive and very popular.
