Top Ten gift ideas for Christmas in Australia (or abroad)

Are you ditching your ski boots for flip flops this Christmas?  For most people living in the Southern hemispheres, this means barbeques and seafood lunches, not mulled wine and mince pies. So if you are heading to a warmer climate this Christmas or you live in a warmer weathered climate and are celebrating the festive season in boardshorts and t-shirts, then here are my top ten gift ideas for Christmas in Australia (or abroad on holidays). 

Top ten gift ideas for Christmas 

Beach Towels 

You can not go past a beach towel this Christmas, as there is nothing better than laying down that beautiful new beach towel for all to see. Whether by the pool, river or ocean, you will need a great towel to dry you off. Tesalate is the perfect summer essential as it has a rapid-dry feature which means no more heavy towels as it will dry in half the time. It holds up to 1 litre of water, folds up so small that it is easy to carry, and the designs are gorgeous.
