Christmas gift ideas

Do you brave the shopping centres at Christmas?

As much as I love the Christmas music and atmosphere at the shops during Christmas time – I have better things to do than spend an hour finding a car park – so I do most of my christmas shopping online, and I know I’m not alone!

If you’re an online Christmas shopper, some of my vendors on the children’s party directory sell a range of items – not just party decor! So I thought I would put together a collection of gifts you can find online from these vendors and to make the shipping costs more worthwhile you can pick up some partyware items for 2014 from these stores while picking up some chrissy shopping.

Remember to click on the images below to be taken directly to the store where you can browse even more gift ideas.

I also want to remind you to view the Christmas Showcase on my Facebook page if you want to browse a range of Christmas printables, decorations, props, gift ideas and more all in one place!

Meet our Blog Sponser – Tiny Tots Toy Hire

I’m excited to introduce you to Tiny Tots Toy Hire as one of our fabulous blog sponsers.

I love this business because not only do they have fantastic toys (such as the ever popular ball pits!) but they have some gorgeous other items for hire such as unique props, drink dispensers and cute kids tables and chairs!

Since so many of us mums love to have a theme for a party it can become expensive having to buy theme specific items. So it’s great to find items that you can hire such as garden placemats, dinosaur ride on toys, pirate and fairy playhouses etc which can work into your theme but won’t take up space after the party! I also love the idea of being able to hire items such as drink dispensers which add that special touch to a table without storage issues afterward!

Have a look at some of the many items they have available and then read on to find out more about Dalia and Tiny Tots Toy Hire







As you can see, there is a WIDE variety of items they have available and I can’t wait to have some of their lovely items at my own daughter’s birthday party!

Dalia who owns and runs the business fulltime is a mum herself with 2 children (daughter 1.5yrs and 3.5yr old son). She is absolutely passionate about business and Tiny Tots in general and is friendly, warm and down to earth too (as I found out when I had the pleasure of meeting her!)

She is someone who is constantly dreaming up new ideas of ways to make her customers experience unforgettable as well as incredibly simple! Over the last few months I’ve seen the Tiny Tots range grow immensely especially with unique props – testament to the fact that Dalia is always seeking out the next unique and sought after party items to offer for hire!

She aim’s for 6 star professional service and for Tiny Tots Toy Hire to be the leaders in their field!

If you are in Sydney (or know someone else who may find these items useful) please visit the Tiny Tots Toy Hire facebook page and website. Their toys are also available to hire if you are coming to Sydney for a holiday and just want a few items to entertain the kids while you are here! Sounds perfect.

I look forward to sharing more with you about Tiny Tots Toy Hire in the future =)
