Because you just can’t put off those festive shopping days for much longer, I’ve put together a list of six luxurious and lustworthy gifts she will love!
I’m pretty certain that these would make great gifts for any woman, even the one who seems to have it all!
By the way. If you need more gift idea inspo, be sure to check out my Christmas Shopping Guides of the past. There are still some great ideas
Okay, let’s get into it…
GOSH Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit
I’ve been using my GOSH Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit 001 for a while now and even though this product isn’t crazy expensive (R255) it definitely makes it onto my list of lusty items!
The product formula is flawless! Inside you get a quad of four highlighting shades that you can either wear on their own (my absolute fave is the golden shade in the top right hand corner), or you can combine them to create your own level of glow.
What I love about this highlight formula is that the “glow” is super fine, so when you apply it onto your face you don’t get a powdery finish at all. The glow can be subtle or really intense – depending on how much you load on – and it adds mega brightness to your face.

CHANEL N°5 L’Eau Twist & Spray
I showed you gals all the beauty of this sleek and sexy CHANEL N°5 L’Eau purse spray on my 2017 Chanel Holiday post and I think it would make the perfect gift for any woman with class!
The packaging is simply gorgeous; elegant and sophisticated with it’s iconic Chanel black and white signature.
Besides being a limited edition and the fact that it’s a perfect scent for summer, this is a real treat because you not only get the Twist & Spray – that fits perfectly into your handbag – but three 20ml refill bottles, so you can wear and enjoy it for as long as you would, your favourite fragrance.
If you haven’t sniffed the CHANEL N°5 L’Eau fragrance as yet, be sure to give it a whiff when you next pass a CHANEL counter. It has citrusy top notes that burst with sparkle, while the base notes combine Jasmine, May Rose and Ylang Ylang before settling on a base of Cedar, White Musk, Orris and Vanilla.

Janira Shorty Greta Briefs
You guys! This brand of underwear is simply amazing! Seriously, I didn’t know you could praise a pair of panties, but after discovering these Janira briefs, I’m ready to stock my drawers with only this brand!
What makes them special you ask? Well, besides their devilish good looks and high quality materials, Janira Lingerie is manufactured in Spain and made to not only look beautiful, but feel beautiful too!
I was fortunate to receive a pair of these Greta Shorty Briefs to “try for myself” and love them to bits! They don’t have yucky elastic bands that dig into your skin, rather they fit fantastically with a seamless touch. They are made out of a microfiber fabric that’s comfortable, soft and stretchy – and that little section inside has a luxurious, almost towel-like fabric for superior comfort.
I LOVE that they come in a box, instead of being stretched to insanity on those annoying in-store hangers, and the box also adds a nice bit of luxury when you wrap it up as a gift this Christmas.
Find them at Barclay & Clegg Stores, or purchase them online (R370) from their online store.
MIMCO Micra Passport Lanyard
For the women who travels a lot, this is such a great gift that she will love! I know, I’d absolutely LOVE it!
Ever since my obsession with the Estate Backpack, I’ve really become drawn to the Mimco brand. I find that their handbags and wallets are really well made, with high quality leather and hardware, plus they are affordable!
This little Passport Lanyard is genius! Made from Saffiano Leather with gold hardware, it features everything you need to travel smoothly. The leather lanyard strap is detachable, so you can use it as a normal passport holder, or hang it around your neck for when you’re checking in at the airline counter, but run out of hand-space!
It’s got a little mirror and four card slots, so you can keep everything you need for travel close by, including a back slot that fits your passport.
Ain’t it just gorgeous?
Gert-Johan Coetzee Ruffle Mesh Bodysuit
Oh my gaga! How insane is this Mesh Bodysuit by local designer Gert-Johan Coetzee for Woolworths? I mean… WOWZERS! Lady Gaga will go crazy, but Dimi is equally as obsessed!
I found this online while searching for sexy, but not quite lingerie bodysuits and I was instantly obsessed. Then I saw that it was a Gert-Johan Coetzee piece, so naturally, I thought “out of the budget”. But, I clicked anyway because I wanted to see it, and glad that I did becuase this is part of a collab with Woolworths, which means… it’s still “Designer”, but more accessible to use mere folk.
It’s so beautiful! I love the centre mesh that looks like a star explosion, and the ruffle sleeves give it that serious diva effect, but not too OTT. It’s the perfect piece to rock with a high waisted skirt or black, high waisted denims and look uber luxurious don’t you think?

Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Dry Oil
I got to try out the Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Dry Oil in August this year, and have been using it ever since! Dare I say, that my hair seems to be loving it more than my beloved MoroccanOil!
I love how it feels, I love how it makes my hair feel soft and sleek and that it leaves it looking and smelling like a million bucks! For reals!
It helps to nourish the hair without leaving it heavy or weighted, and it also protects against environmental damage, while moisturising, and strengthen the hair.
I had my ends trimmed this weekend and my hairdresser was like “wow, your ends aren’t as bad as they usually are”. So if you’re wondering, “does it work”, it absolutely does for me and a little goes a long way!
