I am so happy to take some time out (for half an hour or so) from baby bubble to talk Christmas gift giving! Each year, I put together lots of Christmas Gift Guides for my readers and this one I have teamed up with my friends at Pacific Werribee to show you some of my favourite things from their retailers.

Here are some things that I get for my family members to help you get started on your shopping journey:

Mum: I love to get spoil mum with some clothing, usually from Black Pepper or Jacqui E. I love the youthful yet sophisticated style at Black Pepper and have some great pieces for Christmas lunch outfit options. Jacqui E have some stunning floral and lace designs that always look good on my mum.

Josh: My hubby always gets his new jeans re-stocked at Christmas and I found the ones pictured from General Pants that are a key wash for summer and a hint of destressed is always cool. Now Josh is a dad of three, the ‘dad presents’ are officially ready to roll in and what says dad more than some boxer shorts! Josh loves Peter Alexander and they have them all packed in super cute gift boxes ready to go!

Aston and Will: I usually stock up on toys of course and books and some clothing. I found the flip sofa from Adairs kids and it is something that all my boys love.

Friends: Anything from Mecca is great for gift giving, all my girlfriends are obsessed with this one-stop shop of beauty and home heaven! Mecca have already packaged holiday gifts from $14. For my friend’s children, you can’t go past clothing from Seed or Uniqlo with the cute characters they have in their designs, not to mention PJs from H&M for kids- such a fun collection.

Grandma: I always get my grandma (or Nunna as I call her) a scarf and I couldn’t narrow down which Seed scarf to pick but I found the leopard one and it never goes out of style! I would also look at Sussan for some other fashionable accessories too.

For me? Oh, my list is long this year but I have my eye on a wrap dress from Sheike, more denim shorts from Decjuba, a hair voucher for some blow waves throughout the year, a new dressing gown from CottonOn Body (they are so cosy!) and a heck of a lot of bras, Bras n’ Things have some stylish maternity bras I like.

I will be heading into Pacific Werribee (my old home town) to grab some last-minute things as well as get our family Santa photo.

A little hint, Pacific Werribee has extended trading hours for the Christmas period and will be open until midnight on the 22nd of December; you can find all details on the website.

I also want to mention something fun Pacific Werribee is launching this year, which I think is so genius because I currently have toys in black garbage bags on top of my wardrobe so little fingers don’t find them! The concept is Boring Boxes!

Ensuring that Christmas morning present time remains a surprise, Pacific Werribee has launched its unique gift disguises in the form of ‘Boring Boxes’.

Customers can choose between three plain boxes labelled Toilet Paper, Tomato Paste or Laundry Soap to keep their gifts hidden without any risk of them being discovered. It’s the perfect way to get this year’s gifts into your home and hidden away from prying eyes.

The brand new initiative is being offered at Pacific Werribee’s gift wrapping station for a gold coin donation. All proceeds will be donated to the Wyndham City Salvation Army and go towards helping those most in need in the local community.

You can find out about all the fun that is happening at Pacific Werribee this Christmas on their website pacificwerribee.com.au
