Gift Grapevine gift guide # 1 – Christmas themed gifts

Gift Grapevine gift guide 1 - Christmas

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!


bamboo personalised ornament  silver plated first christmas spoon

Personalised ornaments

Personalised ornaments are unique Christmas gifts that can be treasured year after year – I particularly love these bamboo, silver-plated vintage spoon and clay ornaments.

Make Me Iconic Aussie christmas decorations

These may not be personalised but I like the idea of some fun Aussie icons hanging on the Christmas tree!


Mad Alice Jewellery Christmas wishes bracelet  Lauren Hinkley Christmas charm bracelet 2

Beautiful children’s jewellery including this Mad Alice Jewellery Christmas Wishes bracelet and Lauren Hinkley sparkle charm bracelet would make little ones feel even more special on the big day.


First Christmas baby bodysuit

First Christmas baby boy bodysuit – for when he needs to dress up for the occasion!


special delivery santa sack  Blank Canvas Gifts DIY Santa sack

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.


Hubble and Duke crown baby

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 spoon

First Christmas hand-stamped vintage silver teaspoon – a beautiful keepsake gift for baby.


let it snow

Let it snow! Just add water to create 5 litres of snow. It’s the closest thing to the real thing.


Star Wars Lego advent calendar  Lego Friends advent calendar

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    Ella Bella Ballerina    Santas Secret

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.


Tic Tac labels

Reindeer noses

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!).

Stay tuned to the blog for more bumper gift guides coming your way this month. You can also stay up to date with gift ideas on my Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram feed.

Happy gift hunting!
