The Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

The Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

Stocking stuffers can be so much fun and with all the festive markets happening right now, you could probably find really cute, unique things that will make great stocking stuffers. If not, hopefully my suggestions today will inspire some ideas, and best of all you can shop them online. I like to find stocking stuffers that are fun and Christmassy, so think yummy treats, delicious smells and cuteseys that make it all the more festive. Ceramic Gingerbread Diffusers Okay, so stocking stuffers should not be expensive, and I know I’ve started on the pricey side (with the most expensive stocking stuffer), but hear me out. You don’t have to gift the whole pack of three ceramic gingerbread diffusers in one stocking. If you’re looking for cute ideas that are christmassy and fun to stuff your stockings these Gingerbread Scented Ceramic Diffusers from Zara Home (R479 – R160 each if you divide them into three stockings) will release that wonderful smell of freshly baked ginger bread cookies. While it’s a very Christmasy smell, the scent is also warm and cozy and your gift receiver could also hang the diffuser in a wardrobe after the season and indulge in that yummy smell…

Gift Guide: Lovely Linen Luxuries

Gift Guide: Lovely Linen Luxuries

So, as you may have figured, particularly from my Instagram stories, I am a wee bit obsessed with linen fabric at the moment. And guess what? I am not alone! It’s no wonder everyone loves linen, with it being such a hardy, beautiful and elegant fabric that actually looks better with age. It wears so well, it washes so well and best of all, it’s long lasting. Giving the gift of linen this festive season is a perfect choice if you’re looking for a special gift, particularly for people who love quality, and who you may think have everything they need. IMO, you can never have too much linen! And I don’t mean bed sheets (which half the time are anything but actual linen fabric, although those do exist, albeit at a price – but that’s another subject all together). Now before we get into today’s gift guide, be warned that you may think these suggestions are simple, but that’s exactly the kind of person who would appreciate a linen gift. Not a simple person, NO, NO, but rather a person who appreciates simplicity. Someone who appreciates beautiful, timeless things rather than bold, outrageous gifts that lose their lustre far…

Christmas Gift Guide 2018 – Gifts Under R1000

Christmas Gift Guide 2018 – Gifts Under R1000

I’m wrapping up my final 2018 Gift Guides for the Holiday Season today with some lovely gift ideas for her, under R1000. If you’re still stuck with ideas on the perfect gift and you’ve got a budget of R1000 (and less) to spend, then check out some of my top suggestions for her… Kiehl’s Creme De Corps Body Butter I’m not going to lie! I don’t enjoy giving (or receiving) body creams as gifts! Maybe I’m a snob, I don’t know? Maybe I just prefer the finer things in life – haha! However if I were to receive a tub of Kiehl’s Creme De Corps, I certainly would not complain. It’s an iconic Body Cream that is loved by just about everyone I know. Even those that have never used it, will love it when they try it! There’s a very good reason it is an icon! So that’s why it made my gift guide! Because it’s a fabulous gift and a fabulous product too! If you’re going to buy her a body cream, forget the el cheapo kind and splurge a little on Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter for R720 for 226 grams. She will…

Smells Like Christmas

Smells Like Christmas

Oh la la, it’s December and ya know what that means… CHRISTMAS TIME is here! I love Christmas, especially the smell of Christmas…. Gingerbread cookies baking in the oven, the smell of pine trees and eggnog! The only problem is well, we live in South Africa! So, Christmas smells for us usually lean toward braaied meat and HTH. Not very Christmassy if you ask me. HAHA! But fear not. If you yearn for a true Christmas smell, I’ve rounded up a few goodies you can get to fake that Christmas smell and make your home smell amazing for the holidays… Check out these favourite Festive smells Diptique Pine Tree of Light Candle Oh my gosh guys, this candle is everything! I sniffed it the other day at Edgars and was instantly transported to pine tree heaven! It smells like Christmas; a green, gorgeous Christmas as if you’re walking among the fir trees and cedars. I love the design of this one as much as I do the scent, and if you’ve got moolah to spend or your nose dominates your pocket, then you’ll love the Diptique Holiday Collection candles. In the collection are three gorgeous festive scents, including; Pine Tree of…

Christmas Gift Guide 2018 – Gifts Under R350

Christmas Gift Guide 2018 – Gifts Under R350

Welcome to back to another instalment of my Festive Gift Guides for Christmas 2018. Today, I’ve got a couple of fab gift ideas that come in under the R350 mark. Most of them are actually under R300, but since one was just R20 over, I had to be fair with my title. Like my Gifts Under R200 post that I shared last week, I wanted to find gift options that are useful and above all, good quality! This list is also not exclusive to the ladies. I mean, StyleScoop is a blog for the fabulous females out there, but you might even like some of the ideas for guys too! Are you ready? Shop Great Gifts Under R350 If She (or He) Loves To Cook… I guess you could say I’m full on adulting, since I would totally consider a cool kitchen gadget an awesome gift. But I mean awesome okay? I don’t mean another thing that would just clutter up my drawers. I mean, something useful and cool, like this Joseph Joseph Herb Chopper that comes in at R249. I’ve got a couple of Joesph Joseph items in my kitchen and some I’ve had since about seven years ago. I tell…

Home For the Holidays

Home For the Holidays

Do you decorate your home for the holidays? I’m pretty basic, in that I usually just put up a tree, maybe a wreath on the front door and that’s about it. I know some people go all out with decor, but I’m more on the simplistic side. This season however, I’ve seen a ton of cute festive home-wear that’s inspired me to maybe take it up a notch. I’m not talking about your classic, overly shiny Christmas decor, but rather something that’s festive, without being too OTT. Something like…
