JoJo Siwa Bows, from $10, Big W

These bows are so large and fabulous! The signature accessory of 14-year-old YouTuber, JoJo Siwa, these bows are all about confidence and being proud in your own skin and I absolutely love that – I know the kids will too. Get into Big W to find these bows and more!

Stretchies Tutu Dress, $29.95, Bonds

Bonds is always a winner for babies and this year their Christmas range is to die for! My favourite piece is this tutu dress with the classic Bonds cut and adorable print.

Pig the Pug Collection by Aaron Blabey, $19, Kmart

If you and your kids haven’t met Pig yet, then this is a must have! He is a rather greedy pug who often finds himself in a spot of trouble. This set from Kmart includes three of the Pig the Pug books, which will all be on high rotation for bedtime stories.

Character Bags – Space and Mermaid, $49.95 each, Smiggle

Smiggle is my go-to for anything school related, whether it be stationery or backpacks. Mermaids are another current trend as is anything space related (did I mention Star Wars??)

SmarTrike SmarTfold 400 Folding Trike, $199, Target

Bikes and trikes make great Christmas gifts and what I love about this one is that it folds up compactly - so it is great if you are tight on space or want to take the trike with you on a road trip. This is a brand new model and I predict it will be a huge hit. Grab it from Target today!


Bucket sets, $10 each, Best & Less

At just $10 each, you can’t go wrong with these adorable bucket sets. They come in a range of different characters and will be the perfect accessory for summer beach trips. See more fun gifts at Best & Less.

LEGO Disney Princess Moana's Ocean Voyage, $48, Big W

When I spotted these in store recently I knew they would be super popular with young Moana fans that just can’t get enough of her! There really is a LEGO set for every interest these days. Check out the whole range at Big W.

So Slime DIY Slime Factory Kit, $24, Kmart

Brace yourselves because it looks like the slime craze is here to stay. I like to follow the old philosophy of “if you can’t beat them, join them” so embrace the slime and everything that comes with it. See more quirky gift ideas at Kmart.
