Source, located over on Market Street, is a wonderful treasure chest bursting with unusual lifestyle goods, home accessories and fashion items and is our go-to for all things gifting. With Christmas creeping up on us and last-minute shopping-panic setting in, we asked boutique owner, Sonya (who certainly knows a thing or two about unique finds) to put together a little gift guide of chic items from her store to help find something special for the ladies in your life.
For your mum.
Christmas is a time for relaxing, spending time with family and of course, eating and drinking in excess. With that in mind, this stunning New York map dressing gown by One Hundred Stars is perfect for when mum fancies a lazy day or is feeling the effects of all the eating and drinking over the Christmas period. Note: also good for when clothes no longer fit after eating too much turkey… (we’ve all been there).
For your daughter.
Make-up bags are a fail-safe option for daughters of all ages. These fabulous velvet make-up bags with bejewelled bumblebee brooches are great for stocking fillers or stuffing with beauty products and accessories. She could even use it as a handy clutch bag!
For your super-cool teenage sister.
You’re no longer the cooler older sibling that you used to be, but you might just win back the title with a little help from Source and this vibrant cushion by Talking Tables featuring the iconic Frida Kahlo. Serious cool points coming your way!
For your best friend.
Let the festivities beGIN! Nothing says classy like sipping alcoholic beverages from a teacup and saucer, right? If your bestie is partial to a G&T (or three), this is the perfect Christmas gift. There’s also a Prosecco alternative if that’s more her thing. Here’s an even better idea, why not buy one for yourself too? The ultimate Instagram moment.
For your mother-in-law.
You know the feeling… sheer panic when desperately trying to find something lovely for your mother-in-law/partner’s mother. If you’re new to the family, this can feel like quite the challenge and the pressure of finding an impressive gift is high! Source is home to a whole collection of stylish fashion accessories, like these elegant faux-fur collars. They’re super easy to wear and will add a touch of luxury to all of her winter looks. Head in-store or to the Source website to check out the other colour options.
For your glam Gran.
Nans: notoriously hard to buy for because they already have everything they want and need. These luxurious crushed velvet slippers by Ruby & Ed are lined with cosy faux fur; comfort and style for all the glam-mas out there.
For your office Secret Santa.
Whether you’ve picked your work bestie or a newbie you’ve never spoken to, this chic desk plaque is a fail-safe purchase that will sit perfectly on the recipient’s desk and ensure on unnecessary interruptions.
