You’ve decked the halls, trimmed the the tree and invited everyone over for what will surely be the party of the season. But, as the day approaches, you realise you’ve neglected an integral part of the holiday tradition. You’ve forgotten the gifts. There’s nothing under the tree and the stockings are decidedly vuoto. It’s a fiasco, and at this point time is running slim. As Christmas crazy as you may be, everyone slips up some seasons, so don’t sweat it. We’ve taken the stress out of shopping by compiling a crash-course list for the eleventh hour gifter. Avoid gracing the galleria on Christmas eve, because we’ve got you covered from your crush to your cugino.
Add a touch more mystery to your Secret Santa exchange by gifting your clueless crush a little something extra to keep him warm and cosy. Wrap him up in a sleek intarsia knit scarf and proclaim your love under the mistletoe. Get ready for a Christmas miracle.
Your Favourite Cousin
You know that as soon as the last present is unwrapped on Christmas day your coolest cousin will be hopping on the plane to a hotter climate. She’s the queen of the tropical city-break and needs a costume to match. Gift the gal a technicolor turban and hope that she grants you a shoutout on Instagram.
Gran & Gramps
What’s cuter than a couple still crazy in love after almost a million years? Your grandparents are rarely seen separate, so what’s more appropriate than matching outfits? A his-and-hers set of Missoni socks are just the right amount of sweet and in-sync.
The Newest Family Member
It’s happened. Your sister has started procreating. The same girl that used to steal your sweaters and always copy your jeans now has a little girl of her own and she needs to look fab. Set her up with a tiny Missoni onesie so she’s stylish from the start. If you’re lucky she’ll even start calling you Zia zig-zag.
It’s an open secret that Dad’s been wearing the same tired trackies since the seventies. Banish his bummy trousers and furnish him with a pair of slacks he’ll sing about. Come Christmas morning the whole family will thank you.
