There is nothing cuter than the two-three year olds dancing in the end of year ballet concerts. What a great night. Xanthe had a blast and the DVD is something we will treasure forever.
You’ve been rushing around like a blue-arsed fly and you thought you had it all done and were oh-so organised, but you forgot one of the teacher gifts, or your brother’s new girlfriend or the nephew of the new uncle in law who you didn’t even know was going to be there for Christmas dinner. So you have one final week before Christmas descends upon us all. Here are some last minute, but still great gifts for those people you almost forgot.
iTunes Gift Card
Fantastic last minute gift for the person with an ithing. Great stocking stuffer or cheap postable gift as it fits inside a Christmas card.
Any gift card is good as long as it is a good match for the person you are giving it to. I don’t think Great Uncle Gerald would appreciate an iTunes card, but he might like a Bunnings card, or whatever it is that Uncle Gerald is into.
If you know the person, then you probably know if they would prefer a bright colourful scarf or a classic neutral toned paisley print number. If it’s a gift for the brother’s new girlfriend who you’ve never met, buy something you would like, but include the exchange card. Great teacher gift or stocking stuffer too.
You can pick up a scarf from most department stores from $15-$40. I have seen scarves at some stores for $140. But that’s totally insane.
Unless the person is diabetic or allergic to chocolate, you can’t go wrong with this yummy gift. But a box of Favourites, Roses or Scorched almonds is too easy – even for the last minute. Put some thought into it and get something a little different. Something from San Churro or Lollypotz.com.au for example.
Bottle of wine if you don’t know the person well or a bottle of their favourite drink if you know what that is. Baileys tends to go down well at Christmas.
Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored or asked for in any capacity by the companies featured. I have recently run a giveaway for San Churro and love all their stuff. I also work for Lollypotz on occasion as my friends own the local franchise. I want everything on this list.
If you have never been to San Churro you are missing out. If you haven’t been lately, you need to go again soon. San Churro have added some Christmassy goodies to their menu for your Christmas pleasure. Salivate over these:
The berry delicious Jingle Berry shake ($7.95) is made with real white couverture chocolate, vanilla ice cream, berry coulis and dark chocolate chips for a taste of pure Christmas indulgence.
The new White Christmas ice cream sundae ($11.95) is made with San Churro’s own creamy white couverture chocolate ice cream, berries, berry coulis and ginger biscuit crunch, topped with milk chocolate and whipped cream.
Indulge in these Christmas yummies at your local San Churro. Can you think of a better place for an office Christmas catch up? Or mums group? Or anyone?
It’s also the perfect place to pick up something delicious for those teacher gifts or stocking stuffers. I’ve grabbed two of these truffle boxes to add to the teacher gifts this year. OMG they smell delicious. And how cute do they look? Perfect!
There are some fantastic gifts. Cubitos are my new favourite thing ever and would make the perfect stocking stuffer. Check out the entire range on their website. There is totally something for everyone.
San Churro also do awesome hampers which are full of the most delicious Spanish chocolatey awesomess but they also come in the most beautifully colourful boxes!

The timing of seeing this pic on facebook is perfect as I wanted to share some accidental selfies I have taken. I am so glad it’s not just me that does this.
I usually delete the accidental selfie as soon as it happens, but some survive the deletion process as I quickly change to the correct camera to capture the actual thing I wanted to photograph.
Most unflattering angle ever. I was trying to take a photo of the kids playing with Leo on the lawn. Failed.
This one didn’t turn out too bad as far as accidental selfies go. It was Millar’s birthday party and I was trying to get a shot of Xanthe running around like a pirate with patch and sword. I ran around in front of her and bent down and clicked. Caught my goofy grin instead.
Are you an accidental selfie taker?
