If you read our blogs over fashion week, you will have noticed that Jessica Kahawaty is a huge fan of Code8 products. You can shop her favourites here or you can read on to discover Jessica’s top gifts she is looking to buy for her girlfriends this year.
1. Code8 - Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette in Jaipur Marbles
I love this eyeshadow palette and think it’s the perfect gift for a friend over Christmas. The rich tones are perfect for the festive season and she can either use the brownish/golden tones or be daring and use the emerald and rust pigments
2. Chloé embellished leather
This Chloé embellished leather wallet is such a perfect gift if you like to change wallets often like me! I love that it’s simple, has a zipper and multiple card holders. I also love that it’s white with the C logo so it can be worn as a mini clutch.
3. VALET- Naomi silver-tone and crystal hair clip
I can’t have enough of these Valet hair clips. I have them in 5-6 different colours and feel like they add a beautiful pop of colour to any outfit or makeup look. This is the perfect gift for someone who likes hair accessories and experimenting with different hairstyles.
4. PRADA. Square-frame metal mirrored sunglasses
The 90s trend is in and square metal mirrored frames add a cool vibe to an all black outfit or even a futuristic twist to a coloured one. I feel like sunglasses are personal so it’s important to know your friend’s face well and adjust the frame shape accordingly!
5. Code8's Lip trio- Brunch to Bash.
I’d definitely gift this lip trio to a friend over Christmas if she’s travelling to a hot summer destination for the holidays or even to use in the New Year. The trio is incredible because she can use whether she wants to go for a matte or shiny look and the coral/pinkish tones are a great alternative to red lipsticks.
6. Desmond & Dempsey Printed cotton-voile pyjama set
PJs are such a heartwarming Christmas gift because let’s face it, we’re pretty much lounging around during the holidays. Imagine sitting on the couch with a hot chocolate and these cosy pjs. I love the leopard illustrations throughout. They’re classic and you can even stay in them with guests over!
7. Moleskine notebook - limited-edition David Bowie
I love gifting notebooks as the Christmas and New Year time is a period for renewal as well as writing new goals and plans. This limited-edition David Bowie Moleskine notebook is fun and perfect for a music lover.
