The Gritty Pretty Christmas Gift Guide 2022
Let the festivities begin!
Yep, it’s the most wonderful time of year (again)! We can’t quite believe it either but Christmas is right around the corner. That means the season of endless champagne, beach days and, you guessed it, gift-giving is almost here. Avoid the last minute dash to the shopping centre (does anyone else have nightmare-ish memories of a Westfield car park at 5pm on December 24?) and get the jump on your gift-giving list early.
But, because most of us are at a loss as to where to start, we have rounded up the ultimate Gritty Pretty Christmas gift guide for 2022. From skincare must-haves to fun makeup additions and chic home accessories, we think this (pretty exhaustive) list of pressies is the perfect place to start. Hint, hint, nudge, nudge!
