Jewellery, chocolate, accessories, the perfect dress… here’s what The Grace Tales team are hoping to find under their Christmas trees this year.

Wear it to the beach, the park, work, out for lunch with friends – this shirt will take you everywhere (you might even need two).

Confession: I’m copying our fashion director Marisa Remond. She has these cute sunglasses in black and I thought red would be fun for the festive season.
As the girls get older, I’ve been able to start wearing earrings again. I love a statement earring and French jewellery designer Aurélie Bidermann’s gold-plated brass earrings are at the top of my list.
I’m adding an extra one in, because I love my chocolate and no Christmas wish list would be complete without it. If it’s from Ladurée Paris, even better.
I’ve become really obsessed with simple yet well-made dresses that still allow me to bend over (i.e. pick up toys) with ease. There’s something Gwyneth Paltrow-ish about this Sir The Label dress that is ticking all my dream dress boxes.
I’ve recently joined a new gym (with a creche, woohoo!) which means all my old workout gear is suddenly looking really tired and uninspiring. I’m sure some cute printed leggings would put a spring in my step come high-kick time in boxing class.
Obviously this is a dream buy, but it’s the first handbag in a handful of years that has actually taken my breath away. I love the canvas and leather combo, and in a time where there’s an influx of double G logos everywhere, I’m loving the simplicity and subtle logo detailing. Go you halves, Santa?
This is a usual suspect on Christmas morning. I always make sure it’s under the tree even if the card says it’s from me to me! I am still a paper diary girl, there is no better stationery than Smythson and it makes me feel excited for and somewhat in control of the year ahead. This year I’m choosing emerald green…
SHOP: Smythson diary, $249
I love everything from new fine jewellery brand, The L’estrange by the super stylish Heidi Moore and these beautiful rings in the palest hues stack beautifully for some sparkle during the summer festive season and beyond. Although if I could have some mismatched drop earrings I would be very happy too!
Always love a fresh dress for Christmas Day. This has a nod to Isabel Marant, though designed and made in Sydney by fab label Matin Studio. I love the lace detail and drop waist for easy summer style. In fact, can I wish for it in white too?
