I’m not sure exactly how it happened so quickly, but December is here.
Tis the season for get-togethers, Christmas parties, farewells and end of year celebrations – all while keeping your cool and trying to make sure that all your Christmas shopping is taken care of before the last minute rush. Yikes.
It’s the rush that brings us – and our little ones – to overwhelm and exhaustion, so making sure that you take the time to slow down and just hang out together is so important right now.
The good thing is that you can just curl up on the couch with your babes and still tick items off your Christmas list! We’ve pulled together a range of our products that make fabulous gifts for babies, gifts for children and for parents, to make it easy – and relaxing! – to get your Christmas shopping done this year!
For babies under 6 months:
Bedhead hats make the best gifts! Their super-soft fabric and comfortable designs are perfect for days of outdoor travels and adventures to keep baby shaded from the harsh summer sun.
Teething bibs are the holy grail of chewable, teething soothers. Not only are they a super-absorbent bib with cute designs, but they have a non-toxic silicone teether attached for soothing angry gums. Genius!
For children under 5 years:
While adults often wear sunglasses to protect their eyes, we often don’t think about protecting our children’s eyes. Strange, huh? 80% of UV damage to eyes occurs before 18 years of age, so it’s time we get serious about eye protection! Babiators are leaders in child-friendly, safe and flexible sunglasses for kids and they make a brilliant gift!
A day at the beach wouldn’t be complete without a good explore around the rock pools and sand dunes, but hidden dangers can bring a good day to an abrupt end. Minnow Beach Shoes protect little feet from sharp rocks and shells, allowing the perfect beach day to have its perfect happy ending.
Keeping your child hydrated and drinking water is made easier when they have a bottle they love and we love the fun designs by Ecococoon! Made to be as unique as your child, our small and medium sized Ecococoon water bottles feature fun designs that every child will want to keep by their side.
We also have Ecococoon Cuddlers in a range of designs to keep their bottle safe from knocks and bumps.
For Older Children:
Babiators sunglasses are a great Christmas gift for older children as they are an essential accessory for outdoor adventures – and they look super cool too!
Likewise, if the child you are buying for loves funky designs, they’ll be over the moon to receive an Ecococoon water bottle
Most school-aged kids don’t get too excited about their school lunch, however our Bento Box lunch boxes can change all that! These fun and practical lunch boxes are perfect for creating a healthy lunch without the wrappers and plastic waste, and they fit beautifully into our Fridge To Go insulated lunch bags! Featuring cute designs for children young and old, a gift of a Bento Box and Fridge To Go will have them ready to return to school in style.
If your child is more into a laid-back style of water bottle, they’ll love the gorgeous colours of our MontiiCo water bottles. Available in a range of sizes, you’ll find just the right size for their needs.
Our reusable Smoothie Cups from MontiiCo also make fabulous gifts to reduce waste on the weekend smoothie run!
Just because we stock a huge range of products to make life easier with kids, doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about products for parents themselves!
Our MontiiCo reusable water bottles are just the thing for ensuring parents stay hydrated on the run and reusable smoothie cups are perfect for the post-school-run morning smoothie snack.
Keep a few snacks in your bag for ensuring your energy levels don’t drop and avoid the trap of plastic wrapped bars and snacks by using the fabulous Planetwise reusable snack pouches. As a bonus, your children will never know what is inside, so it can be all yours!
For busy Mums, we have stylish nappy bags that keep every essential at her fingertips without looking frumpy, funky silicone necklaces that are safe for chewing babies and convenient nappy wallets for simple nappy change convenience on the run. These are the gifts every mum needs!
So take a load off, put your feet up and tick off your Christmas list without even leaving the front door. Spend more time with your little ones and make this Christmas one where you are able to spend more quality time together.
