13 Dec



Once again, I peaked too early. I never learn. I had our tree up by mid November, I also knocked-off 80% of the presents, and now I’m panicking about the remaining 20% and the fact that I had completely forgotten about Santa photos! Fun and games, this adulating stuff! OK. I’m going to get straight into it, as there’s only 12 more sleeps until the big day! 

CAREGifts { https://caregifts.org.au/ } > CAREGifts is an online gift registry with a difference. There are a selection of life-changing presents and they cater for all budgets. A few examples: vaccinate a child $25, a school backpack $30, school books $10, Malaria safe mosquito nets $20, a school toilet $100. This is a great gift idea for that one friend or family member who is impossible to buy for, a gift for the grandparents or even a work KK. CLICK HERE TO SHOP

MAG SHOP { https://www.magshop.com.au/ } > We are all guilty of the sneaky petrol station mag purchase, but this adds up in the coin department. I purchase ALL my mag subscriptions on Mag Shop every year and it’s such a fantastic gift idea – and perfect if you’ve left it as late as Christmas Eve (as long as you own a printer!). The enormous selection caters for everyone and anyone – my faves: Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue Living, Belle. CLICK HERE TO SHOP

RED BALLOON { https://www.redballoon.com.au/ } > There are many website who sell experiences, but you can’t really go past RB. There are experiences, vouchers and hampers available online to purchase. There are gifts for the kiddies, families, him and her – Australia wide and you can also shop with a budget.

MECCA { https://www.mecca.com.au/gift-cards } > If you are super disorganised this one probably isn’t for you, as it’s always nice to handover a gift card – rather than a piece of folded paper! Shipping/postage can be a nightmare at this time of the year, so get on it! Mecca offer a huge variety of gifts for men and women, but also gift cards if it’s all too hard. CLICK HERE TO SHOP

HARD TO FIND { https://www.hardtofind.com.au/ } > This website is bloody fantastic! There are fifty million online gift stores, but I just LOVE how they have broken down their categories: gifts for him, beer gifts, husband & grandad gifts, girlfriend gifts, slogan gifts (inc. baby stuff!), family gifts etc. Much like my Mecca suggestion, get onto it NOW though.
