How well do you really know your partner?

The gifting season can feel like the ultimate relationship test: is she a gold or silver girl? Would he be offended if I bought him socks? And why the heck can’t I remember what I bought them last year. 

It's high-stakes stuff, but the best advice we can possibly give is this: don't overcomplicate it. Opt for classic gifts that have a track record of making people feel special, like simple jewellery, nice perfume or a lush face mask. 

We’ve put together a whole list of gift ideas that will get you in the good books. There are gold chains that would win any girl's heart, wardrobe staples for those playing it safe and sheer lingerie for the spicy couple who still want to keep it tasteful this Christmas.

For the partner who annoyingly looks better in your clothes than you do

It’s time to officially embrace a shared wardrobe.

1. Suitor Chain Necklace Sterling Silver 

The chain necklace suitable for your boyfriend or girlfriend’s jewellery box. The long rectangular links with rounded corners are made from recycled sterling silver. Want to score extra points? Pair it with Monarc Jewellery’s Suitor Chain Bracelet or Remie Huggie Hoops. 

2. Tune Sunglasses

You’ve got to love a pair of sunnies you share. Taking inspiration from 60s styles, these distinctive rectangular sunglasses are perfect for adding a touch of contemporary to any outfit. Just try not to fight over who gets to wear them.

3. Folsom Sunglasses 

Sleek, clean and sophisticated. The Folsom sunglasses have green polarised lens and are made from innovative bio-acetate materials. The design is a modern take on the classic rectangle sunglasses shape, with a slight raise across each eye.

4. Short Sleeve Linen Shirt 

A linen shirt you can share. Made from certified organic linen, this shirt is lightweight, breathable and has a relaxed fit. The corozo button down detailing and boxed sleeves are a win for smart dressing or wear it open with a crop and jeans for a low-key look. 

$125.00

Ikebana Bra

Kye Intimates

$460.00

Dandelion Earrings

Jasmin Sparrow

$330.00

Panthera Mini Bag

Sentient

$239.00

Resort Perfume

ROEMY

For the girlfriend who always brings home a little treat for you 

Sliding a Portuguese tart across your desk is their love language.

1. Ikebana Bra 

Sexy lingerie always gets a nod of approval from us but there’s another reason why this bra makes a beautiful gift. Crafted from deadstock mesh, the see-through profile is perfect to wear peeping from under a button-up or blazer for extra style effect. 

2. Dandelion Earrings 

If they’ve always been a pearl girl or guy, they will adore the Dandelion Earrings from Jasmin Sparrow. Made from recycled sterling silver, the ivory baroque embellishments gather together to form an elegant bouquet of petite pearls. 

3. Panthera Mini Bag

Compact and cool, this is the “it” bag that will last the distance (like you two hopefully will, too). Made from cactus leather with a crossbody strap for versatile wear, the purse is big enough for all the essentials: lip balm, phone, wallet and keys.

4. Resort Perfume 

A holiday in a bottle. This perfume has a velvetine and rich base of amber and blond wood, which is made all the more vibrant and tropical with hints of creamed coconut, dewy green fig and citrusy bergamot. Formulated with a mix of safe synthetics and natural ingredients.

$429.00

Cotton Cashmere Robe

JH Lounge

$110.00

Bioactive Mask

LESSE

$375.00

Horseshoe Choker

Released From Love

$216.00

Hermione Hoop Earrings Two-Tone

Monarc Jewellery

For the partner who taught your parents how to use WhatsApp and didn’t roll their eyes once 

It’s hard not to love someone who is so committed to preserving your sanity.

1. Cotton Cashmere Robe 

A cashmere robe? Very boujee and kind of perfect. Made from organic cotton and ethically-sourced cashmere, this robe is a big win for lounging around the house. But is also stylish enough to layer over a nice outfit. 

2. Bioactive Mask 

Level up their self-care routine. This mask works wonders for those with oily, congested, dehydrated or ageing skin. It’s a highly detoxifying, vitamin-rich formulation that boosts hydration and promotes a more luminous complexion. 

3. Horseshoe Choker

If your partner has had a run of bad luck this past year, give them a sign that things will turn around with this necklace. Featuring a smooth and fluid gold snake chain, the horeshoe pendant at the center of the choker is a token for good luck. 

4. Hermione Hoop Earrings Two-Tone 

The hoops that will sort out your gold versus silver dilemma this Christmas. Minimalistic and the right amount of eclectic. They look great alone or stacked with multiple piercings, plus the gold vermeil doughnut charm can be removed for an even more pared-back look. 

$179.00

Ag- R0 6 Ring

LAB935

$179.00

Forest Perfume

ROEMY

For the boyfriend who has been putting up with your family’s “when’s the wedding” questions for years

You both think it’s an outdated institution anyway.

1. Ag-R06 Ring 

The small rectangle face signet of this unisex ring is a classic design that will become one with their everyday style. Made from solid Argentium and crafted locally by hand. 

2. Forest Perfume 

Step away from the Calvin Klein perfume this year. The Forest blend’s notes of spicy-resinous cedar, sweet fig and aromatic cardamon give this long-wearing fragrance depth and complexity. Woody and earthy but crisp and fresh. 

$259.00

Self-Care Set

RIISE

$78.00

Essentials Pack

Aotea

For the one you haven’t “officially” said girlfriend/boyfriend to yet 

But you spend most nights at their place and they’ve already met half your family.

1. Self-Care Set 

The pack that will up their self-care Sundays. Featuring LESSE’s best-selling reparative Ritual Serum and detoxifying Bioactive Mask, plus a soft and stylish organic cotton face cloth from BAINA. 

2. Essentials Pack 

Essentials for every skin type. Kawakawa Balm is a soothing, multi-purpose balm that can be used to treat a range of concerns; Kūmarahou & Mānuka Hand & Body Wash gently cleanses without stripping the skin; and Mānuka Oil is 30x more powerful than tea tree oil.
