While Santa always seems to know the right thing to get, our kiddos and young adults can be tricky to buy for sometimes. Here’s a helping hand to make your Christmas gifting that much easier.
1 | Kidzta – more fun, less stuff
Sick of explaining to people what your child needs/wants for Christmas, birthdays and beyond? Kidzta helps you create wish lists of presents your kids will actually like, which can then be sent on to relatives or friends. It even allows you to split up expensive items so multiple people can chip in. We’ve created a “Source Kids recommends” list on there to make gifting even easier. kidzta.com
2 | iFly – For the adrenaline junkie!
Safe, fun and accessible for people of all abilities, the iFLY team offers adrenaline- driven flights for all. Indoor skydiving is a great experience to try with friends and family. With a glass tunnel, it allows spectators to watch and cheer on from the front seats as you free fall and enjoy the freedom of flight. RRP from $79. iflyworld.com.au
3 | The Paeds Ed Family First Aid Kit
Ok, so it’s not a present that will have the kids in raptures, but we all know how important
it is to have the right products in those vital moments.
