4. For the friend that has everything: Candles
Candles may seem like a cliche present, yet you can’t help but love receiving them! Check off your gift-list with holiday-scented candles. My pick for the Season is Tree House by Byredo, a nature-inspired scent featuring rich spice and and fresh pine needles. If you need more convincing, it is Taylor Swift’s favourite scent!

5. For the traveller: Travel wallet & passport case
The must-have item for anyone who travels regularly! A travel wallet is also the perfect gift for office Kris Kringle’s as they are not overly personal and are great for both men and women. I use the Kikki-K leather travel wallet, given to me as a Christmas present last year. It’s made of durable leather and has more compartments than you could ever fill!
