Christmas Gift Guide – picks for the man around the house

Welcome to Day 9 of our Christmas Gift Guide series. Today we have Jessidee Handmade with a great selection of products perfect for the man around the house. “Because lets be honest, we all could do with a little bit of help buying mens gifts!”

Christmas Finds for Dad

1- Mens Bi-fold Wallet from Whiteley Design – Every man needs a beautifully crafted wallet, classic black leather has to be my favourite, but the others in store are just as lovely

2-  Top Hat Skull Baseball Tshirt from Mikes Ink – I absolutely love this vintage top hat print on this shirt. Perfect for the younger man in the family

3- Resin Shark Tooth Pendant from Resinating- A shark tooth necklace, that is made out of resin, so you don’t need to worry about how ethical it is? I think so!

4- Bike Chain Star Keyring from Tread and Pedals – Bike chain is a great, robust, manly product, and this key chain is a fun mix of eclectic materials and manliness

5- Australian Blackwood Pen from Twisted and Turned –  Beautifully hand made pens are difficult to come by, but this one, from Twisted and Turned caught my eye. A perfect gift for the guy in an office job, or who just appreciates something beautiful

 

Jessidee Handmade is a card and notebook company, that specialises in one of a kind cards, with cute people and animal images, as well as completely customisable journals. The business started with a love of paper, ink and stamps, and quickly grew into what it is today. All my cards are unique, and are only created once, so if there’s something that grabs your eye, let me know

Did you see Day 8– gorgeous monochrome for the nursery?

 

Christmas Gift Guide – monochrome finds for baby

Welcome to Day 8 of our Christmas Gift Guide series. Today we have the lovely Lil HipStar with her funky Monochrome discoveries for baby. What a great selection of goodies for the nursery.

1- Fitted Cot Sheet from Pappiyon

2- Star Mobile from Stef Collections

3- Baby Crib Quilt from Alphabet Monkey

4- I love you to the Moon and back Wall Print from Mint Imprint

 These products are perfect to complete any modern baby/toddler room.  I love the neutrality of the current trend of the black and white baby scheme making it usable for a boy or girl or even a second child.

Laura launched her label Lil Hipstar in September 2013 as a creative outlet to pursue while caring my my first child Oliver.“When Oliver was born I just couldn’t find the funky, hip baby blanket that I was looking for. I wanted something a little different. Before having my son Oliver, I was a full time architect. When Oliver was born with a congenial skull condition called craniosynostosis, I knew that returning to the corporate work would probably not be possible with a lot of doctors appointments to attend.” This was a turning point and a great opportunity to have the best of both worlds: caring for Oliver, and designing and creating fun exciting things for other babies that just weren’t available for us!

Laura chose her business name after considering lists and lists of names, and discussing them with neighbours, friends and family. She chose Lil Hipstar to portray the spirit of Melbourne, the funky little generation of kids. Laura lists her creative inspiration as “a constant passion for wanting to make, create and design”. She says, “For me, designing and making things has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. The next step in Lil HipStar’s life is to start designing and printing our all of our own fabric designs. I think this will add an extra special touch to our product range.”
Laura works with all kinds of fabrics, but “My favourite colours and style combinations at the moment are geometric black and white. I love the simplicity of monochrome and the gender neutrality”.

Did you see Day 7– everything a super hero would need?

Christmas Gift Guide – need a super hero?

Welcome to Day 7 of our Christmas Gift Guide series. Today we have Little Peas 3 with a great selection of products perfect for any Super Hero. 

1- Super hero themed Shirred Dress from Crystal Leigh Creations - Keep cool in the Summer heat with this amazing Super Hero Shirred Dress.  The best thing about this dress?  It can be worn for more than one season! The shirring around the bodice means that as a child grows, the soft elastic makes it easy to be worn as a top with leggings or shorts once it becomes too short to be worn as a dress!  Crystal, from Crystal Leigh Creations makes the most stunning clothes for little people!

2- Messenger Bag from Button Hole Designs – Whenever I go out, my children want to take one or 2 small items with them, why not teach them some independence and responsibilility with their own bag?  These messenger bags have adjustable straps and are perfect for a small person to carry their precious things! Buttonhole Designs uses soft denim and lovely fabrics to make bright bags for children. 

3- Super Hero themed Shorts  from Jasami Handmade – I simply love the products at Jasami Handmade, and the super hero shorts that Michelle makes are divine.  Not your usual Super Hero Shorts, these are made from denim and use fantastic super hero fabric as accents, perfect for a super hero lover, but super durable for the roughest child to wear too!

1- Super hero themed Shirred Dress from Crystal Leigh Creations - Keep cool in the Summer heat with this amazing Super Hero Shirred Dress.  The best thing about this dress?  It can be worn for more than one season! The shirring around the bodice means that as a child grows, the soft elastic makes it easy to be worn as a top with leggings or shorts once it becomes too short to be worn as a dress!  Crystal, from Crystal Leigh Creations makes the most stunning clothes for little people!  

4 + 5- Super hero themed Bucket  Hats  from Sew n Sow – Sun safety is SUPER important, and I can personally recommend a sun hat from Sew n Sow.  My boys wear their hats with pride, everywhere (my oldest would sleep in his if he was let! At Sew n Sow, you can purchase both boys and girls super hero hats in a variety of sizes. 

 

 At Little Peas 3 all our items are for the little (and big) super hero in all of us.  We make super hero capes, masks, wristbands and messenger bags, all following the super hero theme, all by being a stay at home Mum to a 5 year old girl, and two boys, 3 1/2 and 20 months.

Super-Hero-Cape by Little Peas 3

Super hero capes – These come in 4 sizes – little peoples capes, attached with velcro to the back of a t-shirt or onesie, small (3-5 years), large (5+ years) and adult.  They encourage imaginative and creative play, are made from poplin, a durable fabric known for strength, attached at the neck so little (and big) can dress themselves with ease and come in a variety of bright colours, of which people placing orders can choose.  Wristbands and masks can also be ordered to match your super hero cape to complete the look.

Did you see Day 6– super cute gift ideas?

Christmas Gift Guide- super cute finds

Welcome to Day 6 of our Christmas Gift Guide series. Today we have the lovely Robintail with her selection of super cute gift ideas for a special Christmas. 

1- Je T’aime Dress Baby Doll Dress from Pretty Parcel – Perhaps a gift for yourself, Shannon’s gorgeous work always makes for a very Pretty Parcel. Her pieces are high quality, well made and just plain fun! I love this one because there is an air of the Nutcracker about it however in warmer places this season, her Watermelon Wednesday skirts would also be an ideal Christmas day outfit.

2- Inspiration Necklace from Dear Delilah - “She took a leap of faith and found her wings on the way down” is one of my favourite inspirational quotes! The necklaces Katie lovingly creates are typed on her vintage typewriter meaning each piece is as special as the recipient. This one would be great for girls and women of all ages.

3- Pretty Posie Earrings in Peach from Megsy-Jane – These are a favourite of mine so I just had to add them to the list! The feminine charm is delightful and the who doesn’t love a bit of rose, sparkle and gold?  A great gift for women of all ages, they also come in a beautiful gift box so the hard work is all done!

4- Panda Felt Toy from Plushka’s Craft -  Katia’s pieces are stitched by hand, which I think is pretty special! Her designs are also unique and oh so cute – I’m certain this Panda in black and white would be suitable for both boys and girls..and not necessarily restricted to being a child-only gift..he would also be a delightful addition to any modern decor!

5- Pink Deer Christmas Card by Mulberry Muse-  I absolutely love Wendy’s amazing designs. Her gorgeous illustrations and quality of work are the reason her cards, gift tags and prints bring so much joy to the heart – this lovely deer card would be perfect for someone special and will remain a keepsake they can frame later – a gift & card all in one!

6- Gold Rush Ballet Moccs from Hubble and Duke- These teeny tiny ballet moccs would be an ideal Christmas gift for a baby girl, the stunning gold has a luxe look and will go with almost any outfit. A perfect size for slipping into baby’s first Christmas stocking.
