Dear Santa... Top Picks for Fit Fashion & Beauty Lovers

I know there's endless lists of what you need this Christmas, but there's some absolute gold dust sparkled, she'll-love-you-forever, purse bursting goodies worth featuring so here goes. Dear Santa, I've been very good (ok, ok...QUITE good...) and I would like...

philosophy candy cane shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath
Every year we eagerly await the Christmas scented range from philosophy. Don't we all? From gingerbread to snow angels and cranberry, they tick all the boxes on yummy scent, pretty packaging and cute messaging. As the bottle suggests, "we all could use some peppermint cheer this time of year" so if you're done chewing candy canes, your hair and body can smell like one instead. Available at David Jones ($30)

Where's Karl? The Book
Remember Where's Wally? This is the fashionista version with Karl & Choupette located within various fashion cities (Milan, Paris, Dubai...). Behind Kanye and Kim, Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, Andre Leon Talley and Tom Ford, he will be lurking for you to find. Too much fun! Available at Pan Macmillan Australia ($19.99)

Active Creatures Glamour Puss Shorts
Sure, these are ideal for your pole dancer friend, but they're also ideal for hot yoga. You do not want any unnecessary layers in there, trust me. There's a new range out this week (set your alarm for early Wednesday morning) but I've got these in pink and I adore them. Available at Active Creatures (free shipping, $54)

Pacifica Nail Polish
You've read about 5-free nail polish without the nasty chemicals found in your chemist's $2 bargain bin, right? Well, Pacifica will outdo that! They are vegan, cruelty free and 7-free. No parabens, no formaldehyde. I love Crystal Orchid for a pretty pink, but there's every shade from grey to sunshine yellow. Available at Nourished Life ($18.95)

Bitchin Skin Matcha Green Tea Body Scrub
I think the label pretty much sums this up. Get Bitchin Skin with... bitchinskin. My personal pick is the coconut + peppermint mix. YUM. You will not want the shower to end. It's the ideal prezzie for your Doesn't She Already Have Everything? friend. She doesn't have this. Australian made. Available at BitchinSkin ($14.95)
A Bit Hippy Ho Ho Hamper
What to get the vegan crossfit hippy in your life? I know, real problem. Thank goodness for A Bit Hippy and their hamper. A range of their gorgeous, cruelty free and fab skincare and haircare in a cute box. What's not to love? Contains 
Rice & Fresh Face and Body Wash
Soothing & Improving Moisturiser
Nothing To Smell Here Deodorant
Ditchin' The Itchin' Shampoo
