The carols are on repeat and we can’t stop eating gingerbread; Christmas is but a moment away. Here, we take a look at what a few of our favourite tastemakers are gifting for Christmas.

"Christmas in Australia is such a joyful time of year. Balmy summer days, fresh prawns and oysters, a glass of wine, afternoon beach swims to revitalise our body and mind, and catching up with family and friends over long dinners is what makes Christmas so incredibly special. It's my favourite time of year as I get to spend it at home, with the people I love."
"Every Christmas, my family and I do a Secret Santa. This year, I have one of my sister-in-laws and this jacquard striped pyjama set is perfect for her during summer. You can never beat fresh, new PJ's feeling and this beautiful lightweight cotton set makes for a great gift idea."
"I adore Christmas because it brings the family together to eat, drink and be merry! Homemade Christmas cake and the Elvis Christmas album is pretty special also! I cannot wait to host it this year for Franco’s first."
"I love buying for my Mum. I love freshening up her bedroom with fresh bed linen for the year to come and the Brae set is such a divine option."
YAN YAN CHAN + NATHAN JOLLIFFE
"I’ve been based in Sydney for the past eight years now but majority of my family live in Queensland so Christmas Day has always been about bringing everyone together. I love catching up with everyone especially my grandparents as I don’t get to see them nearly enough."
Nathan: "I’ve chosen this gift for my dad. My dad loves to cook and entertain so I’m sure this will be put to great use."
Yan Yan: "I love giving presents that come with an experience, so this Christmas I’ve picked this tea set for my Mum."
"What I love most about Christmas is spending time with my loved ones, enjoying good food and good company!"
"I'll be getting the Demi Jewellery Box for my mum to store all her favourite trinkets and accessories. It's both stylish and practical, and the black finish will be right at home with her monochrome decor."
MEGHAN + DOM LONERAGAN
"It’s rare that we spend time just the three of us, so I’m more than excited to spend the entire day together as a family."
Meghan: “Big enough to travel with but pretty enough to wear out at night."
Dom: “A not-so-subtle hint to get creative in the kitchen/bar."
