Making a list and checking it twice

Ok, I am not one of those super organised people that write a list at the beginning of the year and then spend the next 12 months at every sale event ticking items off. In a way I wish I was – that would be so much more organised and less stress at the end of the year. My problem is that I really like shopping while there’s Christmas carols in the stores and the kids love the decorations – we visit Santa and we wrap pressys only on Christmas eve while watching carols. It’s last minute and we love it! But this year I’m slightly more organised – at least I know what I am going to get (mostly!)

So I thought I’d reach out to those last minuter’s like me who are looking for that perfect gift for someone – something unique or that doesn’t come from a Westfield 🙂 Here’s my list of must-have’s for Chrissy, and nearly all can be ordered online so you can save your trip to the stores for checking out the Chrissy windows!

This jewelry from Ellissa Nolan is gorgeous – I have numerous pieces and wear them daily, plus a good price for a totally unique and personal gift. These are my favourite pressies for birthdays and thank you gifts too!

For our daughter…. she’s getting a red headed doll from Cuckoo for Coco. I’m not sure that you would get an order through in time for Chrissy but stock of some dolls is available for shipping now at Sweet Creations or Unique Boutique ! Or plan birthdays for next year 🙂 Presenting Matilda

Cuckoo for Coco also does the most amazing mobiles – so if you’re looking for something super special for a baby, you can pick these up now……

Miles is getting a skateboard but have no idea where to get one for him – will have to start exploring that, but the kids also need new bike helmets, we have been planning Nutcase ones for sometime…..
What about these?

For the ultra-stylish, and the person you struggle to get the perfect gift for, you can’t go past these stunning linen tea towels from Puddin Head. Oh I’d love to open one of these Chrissy morning, but I don’t know which design I’d choose!

If your better half (or little one) is into bikes then wrap up a cycling cap from Rocket Fuel – they put style back onto two wheels! We already own several of these but am feeling a need to co-ordinate my summer riding outfits so some more could be on the cards….. Keep an eye out though – there were a whole lot of new caps added to the site on Sunday and today when I checked most of my favourites are already gone, so you’ll need to be quick when you see something you like!

Finally, to sate my obsession with little redheads I have found this from Indy and the Ninja – Tilly won’t wear it in her hair but there’ll be a badge available soon, hooray!! Check out all of their gorgeous hair accessories for little ones – I always struggle for gorgeous stocking fillers but these are just perfect!

So has that helped? I’d love to open any of these on Chrissy morning! Can you add to the list?

  1. Oh my goodness, how gorgeous is Elissa’s jewellery? I see them on you all the time and keep on meaning to ask you where to buy them and always forget. Now I know, thanks Sam 🙂

  2. That jewelery is divine. Stuff the kids, I want some for me!! I used to be super organised and hit the sales and layby but now, well now I the mad lady you see rushing around the megaplex on Christmas Eve.

    Next year Samantha, I hope to be more like you, you’ve inspired me. x Bern
