All The Christmas Gift Ideas You Need This Year
Summer is creeping tantalisingly closer every day, and yet another year has whizzed by faster than ever. Before we know it, we’ll blink and Christmas will be looming!
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the growing to-do list towards the end of the year. That’s why it makes sense to start prepping for Christmas ahead of time, so you can enjoy the festive season instead of rushing around crowded malls looking for last-minute gifts.
And who knows, we might not even be able to go mall-shopping this year!
So, we are getting our gift buying sorted early this year. If you’d like to get a head-start on yours too, we’ve got it all wrapped up for you.
Read on for our top picks for eco-friendly, stylish Christmas gift ideas for the whole family, from the smallest to the tallest.
Christmas Gift Ideas For Kids
Shopping for the littlest family members does not have to be hard this year. Here are our favourite Christmas gift ideas for the kids:
Beautiful children’s books with a difference
Let’s face it; little people have some pretty big emotions that they’re not always equipped to deal with. We can help children understand and manage their emotions and the world around them through the stories we tell and share.
Our range of children's books is a very special one. They are full of meaningful stories and beautiful images to help kids (and us!) navigate life.
We stock the bestselling, award-winning Kuwi the Kiwi Series by Kat Mereweather, Rebekah Lipp’s Aroha’s Way series, Kobi Yamara’s What Do You Do series, some stunning books celebrating New Zealand’s flora and fauna illustrated by NZ artist Flox, and many more options.
Check out all these beautiful books in our shop.
Creative and Sensory Play
We’ve all spent a lot more time stuck at home than we would have liked this year, so many of us have probably encouraged the kids to develop their creative side!
We have some fantastic supplies to keep those hobbies going over Christmas and into next year.
We adore the vibrant colours in the Honeysticks Crayon Collection
(there are even water crayons and bath drops to make bath time more enticing!) and Natural Watercolour Paints.
For a deeper sensory experience, we love the different colours (including glitter!) featured in The Dough Folk
play dough products. Why not give a play dough themed gift complete with hand made dough stamps?
Natural Kids Makeup
Kids love to play make-believe, get dressed up, and become different characters - but not all makeup is kid-friendly - unless you shop the range of natural play makeup we stock.
The No Nasties Makeup
range has no nasty chemicals, is gluten-free, and safe for most sensitive skin.
We also stock water-based nail polish and plenty of other makeup products and colours perfect for keeping kids busy throughout the year.
Christmas Gift Ideas for Family
Now that we’ve got the littlies covered off, it’s time to focus on Christmas gift ideas for the rest of the family:
We’re all itching for some outdoor time this summer, so why not make that happen by gifting someone supplies for a picnic? Paper plates and plastic utensils are wasteful, so opt for supplies that can be used and reused on different occasions, like these Bento Lunch Boxes
– perfect for any age, and not just for school!
Insulated Food Jars
keep things cool on a hot day (or hot on a cool day!) and are perfect for salads or smoothie bowls.
Need something to put all your picnic supplies in?
Check out this stylish Insulated Tote Bag from Montii Co
, big enough to fit EVERYTHING you need, whether you’re doing the school run or escaping to the beach for lunch.
Summer is perfect smoothie weather. Help your loved one stay hydrated and healthy with a reusable Smoothie Cup by Montii Co
(also available in Mini size for the littlies).
For Smoothie inspo, we have a delectable range of Smoothie Bombs.
These little morsels of goodness are packed with ten healthy ingredients in each serve (packaged in a plastic-free wrapper, of course) and come in mouth-watering flavours, including Peanut Butter, Iced Coffee, and Golden Chai.
Hydrate in Style Water Bottles
Being a parent is hard work. You’ve always got a thousand things to do, and staying hydrated is usually low on the list – even though it’s one of the most important ways to stay alert and energised during your day!
If your gift is for a gym bunny, a busy mum, a coffee addict, or all of the above, they will adore one of these following high-quality, eco-friendly presents to help them stay hydrated throughout the day.
Prepping For Christmas Doesn’t Have To Be Hard!
Christmas is meant to be about spending time with loved ones, relaxing, and enjoying some much-needed downtime, not rushing around trying to complete a million tasks!
By prepping early, you’ll have more time for fun, food, and sun. All you need to do is jump online, choose your favourite gifts from our gorgeous, sustainable products, and stash them away. Job done.
