Beauty bauble

M.A.C's Dazzlespheres from the company's gorgeous Glitter & Ice Christmas collection are just the sort of decoration we would love to find on our tree. A Coral Ornament costs $88 and contains four-coral coloured Cremesheen and Dazzleglass glosses. There's a pink version also, plus Dazzlespheres for eyes and nails.

Scented swinger

Hang this black and gold scented tassel from your bedpost or door handle, or use as a curtain tie-back. It costs $19.99 and is from the Aromatherapy Company's Millieu range. This comes in three fragrances and also includes diffusion sets, candles and scented drawer sachets. (Exclusive to Farmers.)

French kiss

This white and gold tin bauble opens up to reveal one of M.O.R's little Lip Macarons, a tin of French Vanilla lip balm for $14.99. A black and gold bauble is also available, containing three different-flavoured Macarons balms and costing $29.99.

Bright star

String up these Linden Leaves scented porcelain shells for a Christmas decoration with a summer feel. Choose from a box of finger starfish, chunky starfish or shell designs priced at $34.99.(For stockists and online sales see the site above.)

Well hung

Add a personal touch to your tree by slipping a photograph into these little ornamental frames in a range of coloured cardboard ($9.95). They're also light enough to pop in the post with a Christmas card. (From Isabel Harris, Newmarket.)

Cracker idea

A Jo Malone gift for under $100, now that's enticing. This little Christmas cracker contains three trial size products (a candle, body cream and cologne) for $85, making it a lovely little introduction to the fragrant world of Jo Malone. In this packaging you won't even have to wrap it. (From Jo Malone, Britomart, to order ph 0800 506 7470).
