Over the weekend I was browsing at Christmas gifts and I couldn’t resist my inner child. I know it’s not very creative but with some help from a little elf I’ve created this Christmas Gift Guide .
Firstly, some gifts for the glitter lovers like me. This was like glitter heaven for me. I love how the i phone case has an N on it. Unfortunately they only make them for i phone 6 at the moment. 😦
Glittery i phone cases $19.95 at Myer or Cotton On
Cup $6.99 at Typo Travel tea cup $14.99 at Typo
For the unicorn obsessed. I couldn’t help but think,”It’s so fluffy I could die” when I saw these. Only they’re not fluffy.
Unicorn Pen $6.99 from Typo Unicorn Cup $9.99 at Typo
Unicorn lip gloss $8Myer .95 at Myer Unicorn Putty
Notice how the cup says side effects include sweating rainbow and glitter.
And I haven’t forgotten children whom might be reading this blog. You can’t go wrong with some classic board games or some Lego. They’ll get the whole family involved. Or if you’re after a bit of tech that’s not too expensive, I found this touch activated LED watch where you press the face to see the time.
Pictionary and Jenga $25
For the tea and coffee drinkers. These keep cups will never grow old. You can get them in different sizes and colours and they’re good for the environment because you can reuse them. There’s even Star Wars ones available now for the males or for any Star Wars fans. And check out this cute tea infuser.
Keep Cups starting at $9.95 for small size Tea Infuser $17.95
For the budding scientist.
I spent some time thinking what exactly is this? It’s a bit pricey but it’s a pretty cute novelty gift. It’s called a Jab A Boo. You give it a squeeze and its hands come out like its playing peekaboo and its tongue sticks out too. You can get them in a Boo Bunny, Boo Bear, Boo dog or Boo cat. The Boo Bear and Bunny are my favourites.
Jab A Boo $17.95 at Myer
This whale ice ball mold that makes your ice cube in the shape of a solid circle, although a little pricey at $15 is cute.
And finally for the Disney Queen’s out there. Yes, that’s also me.
Happy gift buying! And remember it’s the thought that counts, not how big an item is or the price.
I absolutely love getting crafty, getting my hands covered in paint and making an absolute mess with glitter, especially at Christmas time. I came across this quote on a wall while browsing for craft supplies and I thought, this is so true. If you’ve never made a mistake in your life, you’ve probably never tried anything new. I am always trying out new things and they don’t always come out right on my first attempt. Like when I tried to make a loom band superhero and when I went to remove it from the loom the entire thing fell apart and it ended up being a pair of legs! Sometimes it’s OK to make mistakes and sometimes the only way to learn is to make a mistake. After all, nobody is perfect. So this Christmas, why not get in the kitchen and try out that new cake recipe, or get crafty and make something for someone. You never know, a mistake may lead to something better than thought and it’s the thought that counts.
It’s the first day of December which means just 24 sleeps till Christmas! Not that I’m counting down or anything . Even though it’s pelting down rain, I took the time to stop and look at the beauty around me and reflect on the beautiful day I had.
Earlier I took this photo of this tree while waiting under shelter. I can see my reflection on the wet ground. I watched as each individual rain drop slowly dripped off the leaves. While it may just be a tree it stood out to me and it looks beautiful all wrapped up in Christmas colored wool like a present. These are the little things in life we should appreciate. So today think about the little things in life which make you smile. 🙂 “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… it’s learning to dance in the rain”.
