It’s the first Saturday in December, which means your local shopping mall is going to be crazy-busy with Christmas shoppers.
My advice? Skip the crowds and finish your shopping online – I’ve found 24 perfect gifts for people who are slightly obsessed with homewares and interiors.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather unwrap a single tube of sensational Chanel lipstick than a budget-vacuumed-sealed-box of 12 crummy lippies. Small, yes. But also very special, superb quality, and a little touch of luxury I wouldn’t usually spend on myself.
Shopping for gifts can get tricky when you’re considering colours – one person’s glorious fuschia can be another person’s ghastly fright. That’s why you can’t go wrong with neutrals, and one of the strongest looks we’ve seen this year in fashion, design and interiors is monochrome.
If you want to change up your look, or take a daytime outfit to night, it can be as simple as popping on a pair of statement earrings.

Have you been to Vogue Fashion’s Night Out before? I went to the very first one when I was living in London, and had a grand old time shop-hopping, champagne sipping, canape-nibbling and gallivanting around the West End in some kind of retail frenzy. Fast forward five years and one major move, baby and two […]
Dinosaur Designs Seed Pod collection. Photography by Tim Georgeson. If there’s one brand that’s synonymous with iconic Australian design, look no further than Dinosaur Designs.
