Christmas 2012 Gift Guide for Toddlers

Ok so you may have noticed my absence lately. My other business is booming so I have less and less time these days. At some point I hope to be able to make more time again but for now you will have to put up with intermittent posts. But this one is a pretty big one!

My first Christmas gift guide for little ones, mostly based on what I have bought my girl. But mostly a whole lot of really cool things I like. I hope you enjoy this!

I absolutely love this Early Rider bike and it is the present my daughter is getting this year. I am not sure I have seen a cooler balance bike actually. They are sent from Australia and arrive super fast. I can not wait to assemble this on Christmas day!

These are so beautiful and made in NZ by hand. I'm sorry but I bought the very last of the Peppin ones (on the right) for my daughters birthday. Buy them here. Oh and there are unicorn versions too!

I'm sad to say I am not buying this sandpit. Another NZ made product and one of the nicest I have seen. With a lid that turns into seats, it's pretty much perfect. Order them through Trade Me here.
These are some books on my Book Depository wish list, some classics and some graphic style ones. 

All from Der Klein Salon, these are my pics from their Christmas section.

Beneath The Sun

I came across Beneath The Sun via my favorite NZ design blog Studio Home. I absolutely love these blocks, how great would they look in a kids room? It's worth a look around the site for cute spotty pillowcases and great cushions.

I have been searching online for Christmas gifts recently and decided to get our girl a balance bike. During this search I cam across a cool online store from Australia called Wooden. These are my favorite things on the site, a balance board and a swing. I love the simplicity in their designs.

Meadowlark for SPCA

It is annual appeal week at SPCA Auckland and Meadowlark have teamed up with them to produce some cool merchandise. All proceeds go towards their work looking after cute animals in need. Support the SPCA by buying some cool stuff, there are kids tees (sizes 2-8), a tote bag (perfect for a beach bag or nappy bag), Mens and Women's tees and a super cool coffee mug. You can even get a necklace directly from Meadowlark and $50 from every one sold goes to the SPCA. Get in there! I know I am going to buy up large for Christmas gifts. Buy the necklace here and everything else here.
