If you have left your Christmas shopping and entertaining planning to the last minute like I have don’t fret! I have a few ideas for us last minute planners.
If you’re having friends over during the Christmas break and want a stunning yet effortless Christmas lunch, Maxwell Williams has a beautiful Christmas Range “O Christmas Tree”. Ranging from gold cutlery to festive dishes to a gorgeous swank platter.
I recently had family over so I thought I quickly put something together with my gorgeous Maxwell and Williams range. I bought a kg or more of pre-cooked tiger prawns and placed them onto the beautiful Swank Platter with some lime wedges and it just makes it look so extra!
I also grabbed some fresh fruit and placed them on a very festive looking O Christmas Tree Platter. Finally I finished the afternoon with a cheese platter on my favourite marble mezzo platter also from Maxwell and Williams.
Christmas Gift Ideas
I used to struggle with gifts, but ever since I started giving scented candles to my friends, gift giving has become so much easier. My two favourite candle brands – Circa Home and Glasshouse have come out with a gorgeous range of candle products.
Cant decide what scent? Circa Home has a gorgeous Christmas Mini Candle Trio – Raspberry & Rhubarb, Cinnamon Sticks and Red Spiced Pear. They all smell like Christmas. mmm

Want to give something more luxurious but also candles? The Glasshouse Miniature Candle Trio is AMAZING. It comes with miniature versions of: White Christmas, Night Before Christmas and Christmas Cheer.
Another set is Glasshouse’s Explorer collection that comes with Rio de Janeiro, Kyoto, Cyprus and Arabian Nights.
Have a friend that travels? Glasshouse has a travel essentials kit that comes with a delicious Montego Bay Coconut Lime hand creme and mini triple scented candle.
What about if you have friends who likes wine? Dalfarras recently released a beautiful wine range.
The Dalfarras range is named after Tahbilk’s Chief Winemaker Alister’s wife and renowned artist – Rosa Dal Farra. Dalfarass is a premium and carbon neutral wines produced by Tahbilk Winery.
Finally, if you’re like me and you love tea than do yourself a favour and head into my favourite tea store – T2, as they have a great range of teas and tea gift sets. If you’re in Melbourne or Sydney CBD, there’s also a popup where you can custom label your tea.
Good luck and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
