Christmas Countdown – Day 1

While the girls have been asking for quiet entertainment like dolls and art and craft supplies, our one and only son has been begging for a gift that’s a bit more exciting. He really enjoys spending his free time outdoors: running, kicking, bouncing, jumping, racing, as long as some speed is involved he’s happy. With this awesome Razor present waiting for him I have no doubt he’ll be spending the entire school holidays outside:

Snap, Strap and Roll! In just three simple steps Razor Jetts (RRP $49.99, age 6+) transform an ordinary pair of shoes into the coolest set of wheels.

razor-jettsJetts ‘Heel Wheels’ are designed for street-smart kids who love trying out different things and mastering a new skill, changing from walking normally to riding on your heels will require a bit of practice! Jetts are super simple to install, simply snap the ‘quick click’ frame onto your shoes, fasten the ankle strap for a secure fit and you’re good to go. The multi-fit design caters for shoe sizes US Youth 12 to Adult 12 and suits users with a maximum weight of 80kg, I think I might have to give it a try too!

jetts-razorTo add to the fun Razor Jetts come with removable spark pads that emit localised sparks when you’re cruising the neighbourhood and the spark pads come in contact with hardened outdoor surfaces. If that doesn’t make Razor Jetts the hottest Christmas gift of the year for active boys and girls I don’t know what will! Razor recommends leaving the spark action for ages 8 and up.

With all eyes on the kids on Christmas morning it is easy to forget about their wonderful mamas, who (usually) have been very good yet often miss out on presents. Of course it is totally normal to put your children first and spend your entire December budget on fulfilling their Christmas wish lists (meanwhile Santa takes all the credit!), but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a few sneaky Christmas wishes too. Just in case there is a generous Santa reading along, here are my five secret Christmas wishes:

kirstin-ash-bespokeFor some time I have been admiring the stunning Kirstin Ash ‘Bespoke’ collection, a gorgeous range of mix and match jewellery that allows you to create your own unique look. I have been picturing a pretty silver and rose gold combination of five initial charms (to represent my precious tribe of kids) and two or three add-ons, I think it would look fantastic and I would definitely wear it with pride.

sneaking-duckWith the new year just around the corner I always feel the need to change my look and make a nice fresh start. Getting the big chop at the hairdresser is generally followed by regret, so this time around I might going for a less drastic change with a new pair of glasses. I am currently coveting these trendy Sneaking Duck spectacles, the classic blue and traditional bamboo mix is just my style and would go with pretty much anything.

endota-spa-gift-voucherAs much as I adore my big family, being a mum of five young children is hard work and there is rarely any time for relaxation. The thought of some proper pampering, a good massage and a quiet room (and maybe a tiny snooze…) is pure bliss to me, so to find an Endota Spa gift voucher under the tree would be absolutely amazing. The only small problem will be to find the time to actually go there, but I will just have to lock it in on the family calendar.

love-my-teethAnother secret little Christmas wish of mine is whiter teeth. Although I thankfully have quite straight teeth thanks to wearing expensive braces as a teenager I would really love to brighten them by just a few shades. The high costs of in-chair treatment at the dentist (and the fact that success is not guaranteed) have been holding me back, but maybe a safe, in-home teeth whitening kit will fit within Santa’s budget?

brother-sewing-machineLast but not least, and I know this may sound a little dorky, I have always wanted to learn how to sew and make my four girls some lovely handmade dresses. Right now I can just sew on a lost button and fix a broken knee on school pants but that’s about it, to own a good, easy-to-use sewing machine would be a dream come true (and if it came with a few classes for beginners that would be even better!).

Go on, tell me about your secret Christmas wishes…
