A Christmas Gift Guide With A Difference

Christmas is a beautiful time of year. Filled with joy, giving and….crowds. Here are 5 ideas to keep your Christmas shopping stress free.



Christmas Gift


1. Support a Fellow Mum
Whenever I can, I like to support a local small business. This year Santa will be coming down our chimney with a sack full of the delightful wooden toys from Little Wooden Toybox. The toys are so aesthetically pleasing and really encourage learning through play. You (or Santa) can get your hands on some at the Little Wooden Toybox facebook page.

2. Give an Experience
Yearly passes are a great gift and we have some amazing local options. Feed some kangaroos at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary or entertain the budding engineer at the Workshop Railway Museum.

3. DO something
Perhaps the greatest joy of Christmas is spending time with our family and friends. Consider planning a get together with your nearest and dearest- even something simple, like a picnic in the park during this busy season can help us reconnect.



4. MAKE something
Put your Pinterest board to good use and embrace your inner Mister Maker. I love these Footprint Reindeer, guaranteed to delight children and Grandparents alike.

6. Give Charitably
Help children understand the true meaning of Christmas by giving to those less fortunate than yourself. There are so many worthy causes. The Pyjama Foundation, amongst other things, provide literacy programs to children in foster fare and accept donations of funds, pyjamas, books and of course, your time.
