And so it begins! Throughout November I’ll be featuring a number of baby and kids gift guides to help with the tough question of “what do I buy a X year old?!” Before I let loose with specific age group gift guides next week, let’s talk Christmas themed gifts.
From baby’s first Christmas to personalised decorations, craft, cute accessories, books and much more, here are my favourite Christmas themed gift picks. Nothing is sponsored here. All ideas are items I love or would love to give!
These may not be personalised but I like the idea of some fun Aussie icons hanging on the Christmas tree!
First Christmas baby boy bodysuit – for when he needs to dress up for the occasion!
Oh the excitement of waking up on Christmas morning to a sackful of gifts! This personalised Special Delivery Santa sack comes “Santa Approved” or get the kids to decorate their own Santa sack with this DIY kit from Blank Canvas Gifts.
This Hubble and Duke ‘Wild Thing’ gold leather crown would be perfect to wear at the Christmas table (and also great for dress-up fun all year round). Available in four sizes to fit newborns up to 7 years.
First Christmas hand-stamped vintage silver teaspoon – a beautiful keepsake gift for baby.
Let it snow! Just add water to create 5 litres of snow. It’s the closest thing to the real thing.
Lego Advent Calendars – wherever Lego Advent Calendars are stocked, they sell out like hotcakes. A fun alternative to chocolate advent calendars.
Don’t forget books! Books always make great gifts.
Stick Man lives in the family tree, with his Sticky Lady Love and their stick children three…another lovely story from the author and illustrator team of The Gruffalo. When Stick Man gets lost, he desperately wants to get home to be with his family for Christmas. And when he helps Santa out of a bind, he finds the perfect way home!
Budding ballerinas will love this Ella Bella Ballerina adventure – these books are beautifully illustrated.
Miss T discovered Santa’s Secret on a trip to the library when she was 3 and loved it. A delightful Christmas book with a cheeky Australian twist.
If you are feeling crafty then here are some cheap and cheerful free printable gifts to make. My tornadoes would crack up at the mere mention of “Snowman Poop”! Such simple and clever uses of Tic Tacs and Malteezers (and a Jaffa!).
Happy gift hunting!
Are you gearing up for Christmas or sticking your head in the sand until December?!
