It’s that time of year again; Christmas is just around the corner…how quickly did that year go? Easily a stressful time for anyone, the mad dash to the shops, the fritting and fretting about preparing for Christmas parties and events, it can all feel a bit of a whirlwind.
Remember that this is the season to have the most fun, to show love and be loved (well not just at Christmas time, but think of it as a time to remind you how important your loved ones are to you when you’re given time to spend with them) and to let your hair down. In this week’s Laloom blog we wanted to share some gift ideas for this Christmas.
Since Christmas is 6 weeks away, have you thought about what Christmas gifts you want to get your mother, sister, best friend, mentor? For those special ladies in your life, we’ve got you covered – literally.
We believe the key to giving a great gift is the intention, the meaning behind your gift. You want to give something special and gorgeous to reflect how you think of her, but when it comes to fashion you might not know exactly what she would like best.
With a Laloom gift voucher, you can let your loved one choose from all kinds of prints and styles – the options are endless. With online shopping not only can you conveniently shop from home, it’s easy to browse fashion options so your friends and family can choose the garments they want.
So you have your gifts under wraps, how about a treat for you too? An Aussie Christmas Season usually means warm weather and outdoor events. Daytime barbeques with friends, picnics at the beach, and camping with the family all come to mind. Something cool to wear should definitely be on your list this year.
For a summer Christmas, you need something that’s casual yet stylish. Keep it elegant but versatile enough that you can kick off your shoes and enjoy the sand between your toes if you’re at a beach party.
Dressing for Christmas events in the summer can be tricky – with all the heat, probable alcohol and food you’re likely to eat, you may feel bloated and uncomfortable after a while. So, you definitely don’t want to be wearing something that might look good but is too tight, hard to breathe in or hard to wear for long periods of time.
In previous blogs we’ve shared how kaftans and maxi dresses are great garments to stay comfortable in – they’re light to wear with breathability, and oh so forgiving!
