In my last post I began the annual onslaught of holiday gift guides by showcasing the best beauty kit gifts from Sephora. For those of us in Australia, we can order from Sephora only through mail forwarders or from family and friends. Not ideal. So today I wanted to do a gift guide that is 100% for the Australians. All the items listed here are Australian brands so they are absolutely available in Australia. Not only will they make great gifts for your loved ones you are sharing this Christmas with, but also a nice option to send to those who are overseas.

If you aren’t in Australia don’t panic, I will have more great gift guides coming up and if you missed the Sephora one go and check it out!
