The festive season is creeping ever closer and we’re not sure about you gals but we’ve certainly started to daydream about indulging in Christmas gifts! There’s certainly no set rule on what to spend your holiday bonus on – some of us are more “save, save, save” than “spend, spend spend”. While of course we’re not advocating that the holiday season is solely about shopping and selfish endeavours, after a cheeky read of this TIME magazine article, we deduce that there’s no harm in treating yourself every once in a while and after a year hard at work, we say, go for it, girls! So, in the spirit of gift-giving, we’ve come up with fabulous wish-list that doesn’t rely on Santa!

We firmly believe that it’s super important to travel and see as much of the world as possible. While we’d obviously love to travel the world month to month without having to worry about finances, the real world does bring us back down to earth quite sharpish. So, in the spirit of wanderlust, we can’t think of a better way to spend that sweet holiday bonus than towards exploration and adventure.
