Kid's Christmas Gift Giveaway

It's less than seven weeks till Christmas and as the shops fill to the brim and the frantic pace steps up a notch, I'm intent on keeping it simple. 

My children will be gifted something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read but I needed inspiration and I'm guessing you would like some too. So I contacted some of my very favourite companies and asked them if they would like to suggest one or more of their much-loved items for a gift guide. Before long, I was organising a giveaway! Once again all the companies involved have been incredibly generous  - thank you.

Because Christmas is all about giving and sharing it seemed only right that I divide the gifts into three beautiful packages. There will be three winners.

Gift Pack One includes:

1. Purdey Bonnet by Dover & Madden - a handmade 1970's inspired ski bonnet featuring a bubble design sized from 3months-36months. Winner will choose size and colour - $41. 2. Customised Child's Birth Print by Playfield. Featuring favourite colours and theme this unframed design is printed on 300gsm quality satin stock  - $60. 3. Bohemian-inspired Blue Dreamer Mobile by Made by Mosey. Wire hoop wrapped in embroidery thread with handmade patchwork feathers and wooden beads hanging from white string - $70. 4. The ever-wonderful Bertie's from Jonah and the Girl. Winner will choose one pair in the size and colour of their choice - $40. 5. For the little gypsy this las flores dress from Little Tienda is vibrant and joyous. Winner will choose size and colour - $59. 6. A sweet Maze & Vale oobee to call your very own (there's two in my household!). Handmade by Leslie Keating this one-of-a-kind creature is perfect for all ages and is made with handprinted soft pinwale corduroy and stuffed with 100% natural wool fleece - $40. 7. A book pack from Harpercollins including three new release hardcovers - This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers / There is a Monster Under My Bed Who Farts by Tim Miller / Ruby Red Shoes by Kate Knapp - $69.95. Total value $379.95

Gift Pack Two includes:

1. Basket Cable Car Kit from Dragonfly Toys -  perfect for transporting little passengers, a secret message or a tiny treat (Che will be getting one from Santa) - $45.50. 2. The latest book from talented duo Jane Godwin and Anna Walker, Today We Have No Plan celebrates the beauty of doing...nothing! - $24.99. 3. Clover Hat by Dover & Madden - a chevron-inspired earflap hat for 3months to 48 months. Winner will choose size and colour - $44. 4. For the babywearer, this children's play sling is perfect for the little muma and her dolls. Made from a single layer of handwoven dupiono silk by Sakura Bloom - $38. 5. Nature Baby French Singlet Suit, an essential item in Poet's wardrobe. This simple one piece design is made with pure certified organic cotton which is incredibly fine, soft and strong. Winner chooses size and colour/pattern - $34.95. 6. The ever-wonderful Bertie's from Jonah and the Girl (love this new yellow!). Winner will choose one pair in the size and colour of their choice - $40. 7. Quirky fairy/bear flip doll (remember these from your childhood!) by Miszko Maszko - $22. 8.

  100. My eyes went straight to the shoes in each giveaway pack. I cannot keep up with how fast Jarvis's feet grow. I would love for him to have a pair of stylish shoes like in either giveaway one or two. Oh, but the fart book! If you ever slept a night with my son you would understand how much this rings true, we call him our fart machine.
    Amazing giveaways!
