This is a sponsored post for Santa Email via Digital Parents Collective

I am sure you have noticed that more and more stores are putting out their Christmas decorations already, it may seem early but (don’t freak out) Christmas is only a little over 80 days away. Yes, it really is that close! Before you know it the first Christmas toy catalogues will arrive in your letterbox and the kids will start dropping hints about their favourite toys and other presents.

Keeping track of all those wishlists is not easy, usually they tell you all about their wishes just when you are busy cooking or cleaning the bathroom. Then there is the aunt who rings you to say what your nieces and nephew would really like, just when you are outside hanging up the washing. Even if you don’t have a baby brain like me it would be hard to remember everyone’s heart desires! Luckily there is help in the shape of Santa Email.

Santa Email is coming to the rescue of busy Australian parents with a fantastic FREE service. Guided by a parent kids email their wishlist to Santa via the Santa Email website. Parents will receive a copy of the wishlist and can then browse Australia’s favourite online stores to find the best price for each product, simply tick off as you go! You know I am a big fan of shopping online and especially around Christmas time it can be a real sanity saver, no lining up at busy checkouts or fighting for a parking spot.

Aside from helping you remember your children’s wishlists and finding the best prices Santa Email can also save you precious time coordinating presents with other family members. Once your child has submitted his/her wishlist you can choose to share the wishlist with eg. grandparents or aunties and uncles. They can tick their purchases off on the same list and voila, no doubles on the big day!

If you would like the helping hand of Santa Email make sure you ‘like’ Santa Email on Facebook for the latest news and updates. Right now they are giving away a $100 Toys Etc gift card, now that should help with your Christmas budget this year.

In preparation of our first ever vegetable patch Daddy and the twins are working very hard on digging up the garden and building a raised garden bed. Our son loves helping people so he is totally in his element (dirty must most adorable). Like most boys he really enjoys the digging up and moving dirt but he is even more intrigued by the building part of it all, he would love to help Daddy out with his own tools so I have no doubt he would love this Toolbelt with Tools from Shop For Tots.

The cool kids Toolbelt by Me2Me2 looks just like the real deal. It is made with strong blue nylon and comes with 4 tools, a perfect start for your future builder and obviously there is plenty of room in the different pockets to add more tools as his collection grows. To make it easy for little hands to do and undo the belt it features quick release buckles. The Toolbelt and tools set ($33.95) offers hours of play fun without the dangers of real tools.

Handpicked by parents Kate and Steve all the products at Shop For Tots are selected with care. With more than 25 years of retail experience under their (tool)belts they know all about picking durable, high quality products and offering nothing less than outstanding customer service. Add to that speedy dispatch (usually next day delivery) and their love for Australian designed items and you can see why Shop For Tots is a store worth bookmarking.

The Shop For Tots range focusses on 0-4 year olds and it doesn’t stop at great toys. From clothing to gifts, decor to bedding, party supplies to out and about, Shop For Tots really is a one-stop-shopping address and the best thing is that everything on the website is in stock and ready to be sent out. Over in the decoration department these new Little Red Riding Hood Wall Decals ($39.95) have just been added,  just gorgeous!

As a big fan of Australian label Oishi-m (their jeans are fantastic, having survived two of my kids and now being worn by no 3) I am very excited by the new Summer collection. Think funky shorts and stylish skirts, fitted with the signature Tummy Toastie waistband and stunning kimono fabrics, as well as a hip range of tees and cardi’s for boys and girls. This pink Bee U girls tee ($35.95, size 00-4) has the sweetest floral fabric sleeves and not unimportant, it is Australian made.
