I love Christmas. Some of our favourite family traditions include driving around the suburbs looking at everyones Christmas lights and going to carols by candle light in the park. For me, Christmas also means hanging out with my girls over the summer school holidays, having play dates and spending time with friends. I might get a little twitchy after 13 weeks with my small people, but right now I really can’t wait to hear the squeals of laughter in the pool everyday in summer. It is such a precious time. I know that Christmas is not all about buying presents…but I really love giving gifts to my friends and family.
For all my new-mum friends out there, I try to make sure they are as comfortable as possible when bonding with their child, so I will be giving them soft breastfeeding Mamaybebe pyjamas. My favourite at the moment is the Florence nightie because it suits all mums at whatever stage they may be (pregnancy, breastfeeding or post baby) and it is incredibly flattering.
For my pyjama loving girl-friends, I think the Clara pyjama set with shorts will be a go-to present this year. They are the perfect summer-loving pyjamas helping you feel cool and calm even if the weather outside is brutal and refusing to cool down at night. The colour is a stunning, rich grey – great way to channel you inner Cape-Cod look and feel!
And for the impossible to buy for people in my life, I will checkout Gwyneth Paltrow’s yearly gift guide. This is one of my many Christmas traditions. The gift guide is such a giggle – last year it included made-to-order 18 carat gold dumbbells for $125,000US!
Happy Christmas preparations and I hope you have an amazing holiday season with your friends and family!
