A lover of nature and greenery but too lazy to be a green thumb; a terrarium certainly appeals. This one is my favourite from Bosky. $90

That just-right gift may be at your fingertips. Get in touch with Celia at I Scream Nails to arrange a voucher for a nail art manicure. $35

Black. Suede. Sexy. I’m sold on these Lauren Marinis pumps. $250
