A Merry Tonkin Christmas Gift Guide

Copy of gift guideChristmas can be a stressful time…
The shopping centers are packed, your wallet is getting emptier by the minute, and you have no idea what to buy anyone!?

Although this is a gift guide-may I just remind you all that Christmas isn’t about presents-sure, its nice to give and receive them-but there is absolutely no need to go overboard.
Appreciate the time spent with your loved ones around Christmas time, and be thankful for all that you have in your life.
I’m hoping with my gift guide that you are able to find some practical, personalized and sentimental gifts that can be treasured and loved for a long time-rather then something that will end up in landfill in a few sort years.

name tags from Little Wellington & Co

Something I like to try and stick to with my kids is-
‘Something you need, something you want, something to wear, something to read, something to make, something to share”

I also like to try and add in an experience to do together too, which could come under something to share, or even something to make depending on what you did! ūüôā

Below is a list of some of my favorite gifts to give.
Some I have already bought for family and friends or my girls over time, and some are on my list for this upcoming Christmas.

I have kept most of it affordable, and tried to support small and local business’ where I can, but of course there is bigger brands in there too and some more expensive items-but I wouldn’t suggest unless I thought they were worth the investment!

Oh, and some of the lovely business’ have been kind enough to give you guys a discount code too!

Happy ‘Shopping’

STUCK ON YOU
These name puzzles from Stuck On You are my go to gift for friends kids!

I love these personalized Backpacks from Tinyme!
IMG-2888The smaller size ones are perfect for toddlers to carry around themselves.
Eadie got two for her 1st Birthday (one from us and one gifted) but I use them both so much! They are durable, I love the variety of designs and they wash up well if they get dirty.
The bigger style would make the perfect gift for a child about to start kinder, daycare or school! (you can get matching drink bottles and cooler lunch bags too)
Eadie also has one of their large Swim Bags as well!

STRATTAN PHOTOGRAPHY

What’s more personalized then beautiful photos of you, your child, family, or pets!
Annmaree is a great friend of mine, but she’s also my go-to photographer!
She’s based in Drouin-Gippsland. I have had multiple outdoor sessions with Annmaree.
Last Christmas I got ‘secret’ family photos done with her of my siblings then printed them all and put them in a huge collage frame which is now hanging up in my parents home. If you are struggling with what to buy someone who’s got everything, pay the money to get some professional photos done-you can never have enough photos to treasure.
You can check out some more of Annmaree’s talented work here- Strattan Photography

PHOTO GIFTS
Once you’ve got your photos, there’s so much you can then do with them!
Last year I used Vistaprint for all of my photogifts!
They quite often have good sales on of 40% right up to 70% off, so sign up to their newsletters or keep an eye on their Facebook pages for sales.
Last year I got personalized Christmas Cards, Calenders and Magnets made-but there’s a huge range of products on their website you could make with your images.

HOME BAKED TREATS
IMG-3159Another way to give a really personalized gift is to make some baked treats. Get the kids involved, they absolutely love it!
Last year I got some themed Christmas Boxes from The Reject Shop, then made a range of different home made treats with Eadie. Each family member received a box, with a personalized tag I made using a template on Canva. Leading up to Christmas I will share some of our treat recipes on my Instagram Account.

 

 

MONDAY DESIGN CO
hchart
One of these gorgeous height charts from Monday Design Co is on my Christmas List for the girls this year as a joint gift.
hchart1Such a beautiful keepsake that will stay with the family forever, keeping track of measurements and memories.
Would be the perfect gift for a family, or even for the Grandparents to keep at their house. I love the fact that this is a item that you can move around your home, and better yet-take with you if you move house!
Imagine having written a lifetime of measurements onto a wall in your house, and then having to leave them behind!


These height charts are hand made by a family in Brisbane, and can be personalized with a family or child’s name.

SNUTZ
54203996_1271916232949726_9090049465938608128_n
We got one of the Snutz Flipout couches last year for Eadie for Christmas.
It has honestly been one of the best investments!
unnamed (28)
Beforehand, we had one of those soft material ones from Kmart-I was forever having to pull off the covers to wash them after Eadie spilt something on it, then each time I put it back on it was becoming more misshaped and discoloured.

 

 

 

69308658_1381272095347472_4237072386685403136_n (1)The Snutz couches are made from vinyl, and completely wipeable!
We’ve had so many spills (and toileting accidents) on our Snutz couch but its been easily cleaned! I got a plain black one to match our black couch, but there is a huge range of different colours, and you can even get your childs name put on the back of it! They are also bigger then the foam ones you can get from Kmart, so suit children up to a larger age.

 

Is your child a fur baby?
They also make personalized Pet Beds and Booster Seats too!

LOVE STAXX

Love Staxx create the most beautiful water colour paintings from your images.

unnamed (2)
Or perhaps you’ve got an image you love but its really poor quality? Love Staxx can bring it back to life with her beautiful work!
Teacher

School, Kinder, Daycare, Dance, Music, or Sport Teachers-we all want to gift these people who are educating our children something special at the end of the year-but having multiple children with multiple hobbies and classes can make it become quite expensive.
Below are a couple affordable, yet thoughtful and personal gift ideas.

BOHEMIAN STRINGS
unnamed (3)
Teachers are always wearing lanyards to carry their keys and swipe cards, so why not gift them a beautiful silicone beaded one from Bohemian Strings. Or better yet, why not get them a personalized one?
I have been using my lanyard for months with my car keys and its honestly been the best thing I have ever purchased! I never lose my keys again, or lock my kids in the car (whoops) and I love how pretty it is!

HAMPSONS HOMEWARES

Teacher (1)

I’m ALL about the practical gifts!
Honestly, I would not be disappointed in new socks and jocks this year for Christmas (hint hint Aunty Sue)
Those things we really need, but never get around to buying for ourselves, or cant quite afford-they are the best types of gifts to be given!
I even find myself buying my own kids every day items they need for their birthdays and Christmas, like a new toothbrush and toothpaste etc.

A CALENDAR
I mentioned above about Calendared Shop, but if you aren’t ready to make the change to a reusable calendar just yet, there are some other places you could grab a personalized calendar from-
STUCK ON YOU
stuckonyou
They have some really affordable personalized calendars and weekly planners on their website. Keep an eye out for their sales too!

VISTA PRINT

Vista Print also have a range of different types of calendars that can be personalized with images. Last year I got a few different types made, small desktop, standard wall calendars, and magnetic fridge calendars. I personalized them with our family photos I got done. I waited until they had a sale and they were extremely affordable! Great gift for Grandparents and extended family members.

TOY SACK
toysackk
We all know your kids are going to end up getting a mountain of new toys for Christmas, so why not get them a personalized Toy Sack from Happy Joy to put them all in?
Completely customized with your child/children’s name, and theme of what to put in them. If you buy two you can get a bundle discount too!
DISCOUNT CODE: TINYTONKINTALES10% for 10% off

NEW SHOES
IMG-8085Kids seem to go through shoes soo quickly! Between how quickly they grow, and the general wear and tear-I’m always needing new shoes!
My absolutely favorite brand of shoes are Bobux-they were Eadie’s first pair of shoes, and I have some away for Dottie as her first pair of shoes also.
I think its really important to make sure your children have good quality shoes, after all-they do spend A LOT of time running around on them?

TOOTHBRUSH & TOILETRIES
tooth.png

Well, you can’t get much more practical then buying someone a toothbrush or toiletries?
But what about helping them take the first step in making more sustainable choices?
EcoShores is a business created by a 13 year old girl who wanted to make a change to the world we live in, but also make it cost effective. Her products are very reasonably priced, you can also purchase starter packs and monthly subscriptions.

HOUSE CLEANER
What a gift!!!
Buy someone a house cleaner for a couple hours!
Its as easy as googling local cleaners in your area (or the person you are gifting’s area) and paying for their service upfront. My friends did this for me after I had Dottie and it was great! I went out for the day, and come home to a sparkling clean house! A much appreciated gift!

AMBULANCE MEMBERSHIP
Perfect gift for those young teens!
My parents use to buy my brother and I an Ambulance Membership every year for Christmas. Something you don’t even think about at that young age, but if anything was to ever happen, you (and your parents) would be very thankful that you didn’t cop a large Ambulance fee!

VOUCHERS
Do you know where someone gets their hair done regularly?
Or any beauty treatments?
Or help put towards their weekly groceries or fuel with a gift card.
Or maybe treat them to a few nights off cooking with an Uber Eats voucher?
I think the older we get, the more we appreciate practical things like that! and hey, at least you know it would get used!

A HAT
bedhead.png
Can’t go wrong with buying a child a hat!
Especially at Christmas time, right in the middle of summer!
Our favourite hats are Bedhead Hats!
unnamed (27)
We’ve been using them since Eadie was a baby. I love that they all have a string to keep them on, and their sizes range from newborn right up until teens. You can also purchase in bundles and save some $$$.
We have one from their swim range and normal range, they have so many different prints, as well as plain colours.
They also have great wet bags and bathers too that you can purchase in a bundle!

 

LUNCHBOX

Both my girls have a personalized Bento Box from Stuck On You, and they get used so much! I have also bought them as gifts for people before too. Being able to personalize them with their names and prints/pictures makes each one unique! You can also purchase different bundles with matching lunch bags, drink bottles etc.

experience

This is something I always try and do for gifts-give the gift of an experience, something they can create a memory from and spend time with their family, partner, friends, or even just themselves! Plus, its a sustainable gift to give too! As it won’t end up in the landfill like a plastic toy etc. would.

A DIFFUSER


I have bought diffusers from Lively Living as gifts for people before, and because I know they have one-I then get them another new oil each occasion! (so you’ll never not know what to buy them again)
You can get some gorgeous styles and designs now, I have 5 of the Lively Living range in my household!

HAMPERS
hamperI generally don’t buy pre made hampers at the store because they can be costly, and also filled with items I don’t think people will use. So, I’ve created my own for people in the past!
To make it more sustainable, head to the Op Shop and upcycle an old cane basket!
Then head to the shops and purchase all the favourite things of the person you are creating it for.
A Mother or Grandma? You could great a pamper pack with their favourite face creams, washes, perfumes etc. and add their favourite hot drink (coffee, tea, hot chocolate) and biscuits, or perhaps wine and crackers? Then add whatever else they like! Facemasks, nailpolish-you can custom make it to match perfectly to that person, meaning you know that everything inside will get used.
What about a male? Add some beer, socks, jocks,some fishing accessories-whatever they are in too! Wrapping it all up as a hamper gives it that special touch.
If you are purchasing a gift voucher for someone or an experience, add that into your hamper too!
Some home baked treats can make it that bit more special too.
I’ve also made Fruit Hampers at Christmas time for people as well-we eat soo much junk food leading up to and on Christmas that sometimes it’s nice to be gifted something that’s a healthier option. Plus you can support your local Fruit & Veg store doing so!

BATH TOYS

We’re all starting to use keep cups for our coffees, but what about those Smoothie lovers? Or perhaps Iced Latte lovers! I’ve heard amazing things about these Smoothie Cups, and planning to buy some for myself for my smoothies and shakes I make at home, so that I can take them with me when I head out. They also come in kids sizes too!
You can purchase them here at Little Bags Of Magic
