Can you believe Christmas is next month? It’s such a lovely, warm and joyful time of year and kids catch on to all this excitement early on. I bet Santa has received his first Christmas wish lists of 2015 already! In this beautiful new book by Aussie favourites Jane Godwin and Anna Walker we get to take a look at some of the many different things that make Christmas time special:

What Do You Wish For?

From wonderful memories and treasured traditions to fun people to spend it with and much longed for gifts, What Do You Wish For? has got Christmas covered. Everyone in the street is looking forward to the big Christmas show and writing down their paper wishes to hang on the big tree. But what does Ruby really want for Christmas this year?

What Do You Wish For?

Every family celebrates Christmas a little differently and this delightful Christmas book captures all those different aspects beautifully through words and pictures. Don’t hide this sweet book until Christmas Day, sit down and share it with your children in the weeks before and talk to them about what makes Christmas special for your family.

With 7 weeks to go until Christmas it is time to start organising the presents and plan with whom and where to spend this special time of the year. When it comes to December gifting I am the super organised kind, I start early in the year and keep everything in piles so I can see easily who will be receiving what and if the scores are even (for both number of presents and budget). I am well on track with only a few missing pieces left to organise, no stress here.
