OK, I understand
I am loathe to title this 'Christmas Gift Guide' because there is literally SO MUCH GOOD STUFF to buy on the interwebs when you start looking for it, and I wouldn't want to claim that I have found the ultimate list! Instead, this is just a round-up of 23 awesome gifts for kids, some handmade, some not, most from Australian online stores... because everyone knows Christmas shopping is way less painful online in NOVEMBER than it is in-store in DECEMBER!
Some seriously fantastic online stores are represented here - I could literally have filled the entire post just with stock from Kido Store in Sydney (SO amazing!)... so if these picks don't quite fit the bill, do have a browse through some of the stores mentioned, and I am sure your stockings will be looking very full before you know it!
HUGE THANKS to The Design Files' very lovely occasional blog helper Miriam McGarry and of course brilliant sub-editor Jenny Butler for their fantastic gift research! Most of these are their discoveries... nice work ladies! Gifts for Mums, Dads, boyfriends and girlfriends to come over the next 2 weeks!
