Reporter: Sally Obermeder

Alyce cowell - Westfield stylist "at xmas it's not about how much you spend it's about what you buy, you don't have to spend a fortune to get fabulous xmas presents."

Sally which is great news for those that still have a few things left to buy or are yet to make a start on the xmas list. Westfields fashion insider, Alyce Cowell, is guiding me through the best gifts choices under $50 ... First off - gifts for women

Thomas sabo charms: from $37 Alyce: sally charms have made a huge resurgence; they're really popular at the moment, these Thomas sabo ones are my favourite because they actually have 473 varieties. So for women who love jewellery this is a great way to start off a bracelet or a necklace for them.

Sunny girl dresses: from $40 Sally "Fashion is a great option when it comes to women's xmas presents. A little summer dress like this is perfect and you don't have to spend a fortune. Sunny girl has a massive range. It's all affordable and it's completely on trend."

Sally "for men Alyce recommends steering clear of socks and undies

Edifier Ipod alarm $50 Alyce "tech toys are a great gift for guys for xmas and what's good about this Edifier I-pod dock is that it's an alarm clock but you can also play your own music through it and its ipod and iphone compatible. i especially love what it looks like, it's masculine and it's sleek and it's good for the home or office

TOP GEAR THE CHALLENGES COLLECTION: $50

ALYCE: this xmas its all about boys and their toys and top gear is all about that so we've got this cool gift for all guys and what's cool is that its got challenges 1 to 4 hidden inside SAL: oh hidden inside stig ALYCE: yeah and the DVDS just flick out from there

FERRERO ROCHER GIFT PACKS + GELATISSIMO PACKS:

Alyce "if your looking for a unisex gift we've got two ideas which are quite amazing. the gelatissimo cones, they're a really quirky gift idea in itself or for the chocolate lover we've got the ferrero rocher packages. they are really good for a kris kringle or if your going to somebody's house for Christmas Sal: and not expensive? Alyce "the boxes here are under $50 and the cones here are $12.95 for a dozen, Sal well for 11

Sal if you're spending a bit more, up to $100, Westfield's gifting expert Margaret merten has the best picks. For women, a m.a.c xmas pack is a treat most women would love to receive

MAC XMAS PACKS FROM $55

Margaret "we've got all the lip glosses, we've got eye shadows. These are fantastic ideas for stocking fillers if you're looking for something a little bit smaller this is a great option.

SEAFOLLY TOTE AND HAT: TOTES FROM $50 AND HATS FROM $40:

Margaret "the tote bag is a fantastic present and quite a substantial thing to give as well and also a summer hat with the tote bag, she's sorted for the beach, it's a great combination

MASTERCHEF KITS:

Sal "so what do you recommend for kids?

Margaret "this is really great because it feeds into the whole masterchef phenomenon for kids. There's a cake kit, there's a pizza maker there's the burger kit. There's these cute aprons and chefs hats, this is just a really great idea where the kids will be really engaged for a long time

TWILIGHT ECLIPSE BOX SET: $XX

Margaret "another great gift idea for kids is this special Eclipse box set edition and there's 3 discs and there's all this fantastic behind the scenes footage, there's deleted scenes there's audio commentary by the stars it would just be the best gift

Sally "unisex gifts are often the hardest to buy so take the experts advice and choose something they wouldn't buy for themselves. The top tip? Beach accessories.

SUBOO BEACH UMBRELLA - $100 BEACH CHAIRS - INSERT GFX: $55

sally "the suboo beach umbrella and beach chair are perfect for men and women and also make a great gift for a family.

SPEEDO AQUA LAP $90

Margaret "look men are sometimes hard to buy for and this is a fantastic present for someone who is a little athletic and what it is is actually a ring you pop on your finger and it counts laps. its got a stop watch an alarm and it can be used under water.

SAL: wow that's quite good isnt it MARGARET: it's a really genius idea

MARTINI KITS:

SAL: OK so the boys what else can we get them?

MARGARET: this is a great idea for someone who might be a little bit hard to buy for, but likes the finer things in life so what we have here are 2 martini kits. This one here has 6 flavours and this one is a bit fancier it comes with a beautiful cocktail shaker so it's something that the person can really enjoy for a long time after Xmas.
