While we’re not a a huge Christmas family, I hear a lot of people talking about gifts and what to get. And that’s really the hardest thing to decide. You want them to like it (not fake like it) and you want it to fit into your budget. Today I thought I would try and make this a little bit easier for everyone by doing a round up of gifts.
I thought about this post a while back, and when I started looking around for good ideas, I felt stuck and like I was looking at the same old retail stores that are in every shopping centre. So I put a callout on Sourcebottle and had an unbelievable response. I’ve selected just a few that really stood out to me personally to share with you here.
I have not been paid or gifted any of these products, these recommendations are based on my opinions after looking at company websites. As such, please direct queries about any of these products to the retailers themselves.
Enjoy the Christmas Gift Guide!
My Choc – Price Range: from $8.95 plus postage
My Choc allows you to create your own chocolate bar. They so many options available that there are over 30 million possible unique chocolate bars you could make. The mind boggles! You can get them in heart or bar shapes, so maybe keep this one in mind for Valentine’s day too!
My Sweets Paradise – Price Range: $8.99-$11 plus postage
My Sweets Paradise is a company who caters for food allergies in baking. You can purchase cake pre-mixes that cater for gluten free, dairy free, egg free or vegan. So if you have a family member who you usually struggle to cook or gift for because of allergies, this fills your need really well.
Knotlace – Price Range: $12.95-$39.95 (free postage within Australia)
Knotlace is a product that lets you wear a custom piece of jewellery every single day. It can be a necklace, bracelet, hair accessory and even a decorative belt. Perfect for outfit changes throughout the day or for travel.
Beer Cartel – Price range: from $30 per month
Beer Cartel’s Beer Club intrigued me immediately. While I’m not a huge beer drinker, I do like to try new drinks. Usually for me that means looking through the discount bin in the local alcohol warehouse, but I think this is a much simpler (and probably classier) option. You can subscribe to a monthly 6 or 12 pack, with a variety of payment options and durations.
EcoChici – Price range: from $22
ecoChici is a great idea – reusable & stylish gift wrapping. I love the idea of this, and think it’s a perfect way to do gifts within your family – that way you can make sure that what goes around is coming around!
Scrubba – Price range: $64.95 (free postage within Australia)
The Scrubba Washbag is a cool travel device that cuts down your washing to between 30 seconds and 3 minutes. The thing I love about travel devices is that they are usually super-efficient and super-durable, which means they work well in daily life as well as for travel.
OzHarvest – Price range: $60 (free postage within Australia)
OzHarvest is an amazing charity which takes perishable food from commercial outlets and delivers it to charities who support vulnerable people. They have a cookbook full of family friendly recipes available for purchase.
Glow Pear – Price range: $199 (limited time free postage within Australia – metro areas)
Glow Pear aim to make gardening simple and possible in any environment with their self-watering planter. I think this is a great idea, especially for those who live in apartments or don’t have a yard.
Storksak – Price range: $499.99 (plus postage)
Storksak are a baby bag company who have a difference that appeals to me greatly – they don’t really look like baby bags! I’ve been snooping around them and other baby bag brands for a while as I try to find something that reliably stands up to a lot of use.
I hope you’ve found something that you or someone you’re shopping for will like!
