Her hair always has that perfect wave. She is the only girl you know who can pull off pastels, neons, and other bright colors. She keeps a spare bikini in the trunk of her car, just in case. She has a carefree spirit. Her skin is always perfectly sunkissed. She will travel across the world at the drop of a hat. She is the Sydney girl.
If you want to give a truly unique and one-of-a-kind gift this holiday season, this (1) Vintage Town & Country Surfboard ($998) is a must-see. It is one of those home décor pieces that will become an instant talking point, and its green hue is so pretty. The Sydney-inspired girl is always ready to mix up a cocktail, so she will definitely appreciate these (2) Tribal Color Coasters ($10). Of course, she is also always ready to travel at the drop of a hat, so (3) Tory Burch’s Robinson Passport Holder ($95) is sure to be welcome. Given that she is always on the move, she is sure to appreciate a signature scent in a travel-sized bottle—like (4) Marc Jacobs’s Lola Rollerball ($22). Similarly, a dress that is ready for both day and night would be a definite hit with the Sydney-inspired girl and the fact that (5) Aqua’s Mirror-Print Dress ($78) has a scuba-inspired feel is a bonus. Her collection of international coins will be contained in (6) Apple & Bee’s Embroidered Hemp Coin Purse ($22). The Sydney-inspired girl knows a great bikini when she sees one, so make sure you check out (7) Lisa Marie Fernandez’s The Lauren Bikini ($193). Last, but certainly not least, (8) Kelly Wearstler’s Cabochon Opal Ring ($295) is perfect because the Sydney-inspired girl loves a low-key yet luxe look. Happy shopping!
