Did You Know About These Christmas Gifts Ideas? plus Giveaway

One of the things I love about blogging is finding products to showcase.  I say no to many reviews so you know if a product makes it here, I was won over.  Here are three products you may not be aware of that would make wonderful Christmas presents.  One is fun, two is practical and three is full of homemade goodness.

1. Fun: Sing-a-ma-jigs

Sing-a-ma-jigs have taken America by storm and are now available in Australia in time for Christmas.  They really are adorable! Disturbingly so. They chatter, sing a song and my favourite, harmonise with each other.

Here’s a video I did with my girls.


2. Practical: Mooo Family Calendar

Mooo brings absolute class to personalised products.  Stick labels, clothing, wooden puzzles and canvas art are a few personalised products available.

I was given a family calendar and it far exceeded my expectations.  Every member of our family has their own column so, at a glance, I can see what every one is doing on a particular day. How brilliant is that!  The designs are gorgeous and there are matching personal diaries and journals.

The family calander is one of the best family Christmas presents I’ve found and represent great value for money. Click the picture to see the entire range of family calendars. Watch out for a Mooo giveaway in December.

    Ive actually been eying off these calendars for ourselves. My hubby works in the mines for two weeks and then is home for one week. Our 3 year old is forever asking when is daddy going to be home. Think I might order a calander so that I can chart in for her when dad is home and away.

    It’s nice to hear that you think the Mooo products are of good quality. Thanks

    Sing-a-ma-jigs are adorable! You have just solved a few of my Christmas gift problems. I can just see my daughter trying to mimic it – just like your youngest and my two little nieces too.

    Iv been eyeing off those calenders for awhile. Might be the push I need to go order one. Crayons are adorable too

  12. says

    The crayons are so cute. I should get a pack for Heidi’s early intervention classroom. Although possibly the children would get distressed when they are not perfect anymore…. hmmm bears thinking upon.
