Mum Central knows ‘good gifting’ and this round-up of our Hippo Blue favourites is sure to inspire your festive shopping! 

When it comes to choosing the perfect Christmas gift everyone appreciates a present that demonstrates a lot of thought, even our little people! We’ve curated five of the best in personalised Christmas gifts so you can look like you made an enormous, impressive effort – when really we’ve done the hard work for you!

Personalised storybooks – bringing literacy to life!

From the moment I read the line ‘We want their problems to be small and their dreams to be big…’ as the intro to this beautiful story I was sold. Could there be a sentiment more perfect than that? Add to the fact that this adorable tale can be personalised with your child’s name and I can’t log on fast enough to order one.

Hippo Blue Books

This is definitely not your ordinary book gift! Authored and illustrated by Australian Brett Curzon, The Adventures You’ll Have is an inspiring story teaching children to live wildly, laugh loudly, dream without limitations and seize the adventures ahead! If you’re looking for another title so you can gift siblings also check out The ABC Jungle Adventure.

Unique wooden puzzles – that look just like your little one!

These illustrated wooden puzzles that allow me to tweak the hero to be ‘just like my son’ are a total winner! After you’ve personalised the character you can emblazon your child’s name onto the piece for the most perfect puzzle around. I’m particularly taken with the Australiana themed Christmas puzzle – the perfect choice to send to relatives overseas but there’s stacks of gorgeous themes to choose from including Heroes Save the Day, Busy City, Magic Garden and Royal Play Time. Of course anything that promotes learning, quiet time and problem-solving play is a total winner! Adore!

Wheelie Bin Cricket – It’s as Aussie Christmas as summer & sun!

When I discovered these wheelie bin cricket stickers I couldn’t believe anything so ingenious actually existed! Add to that their cute Christmas styling and massive practicality of no longer getting your bins mixed up and for me this is the gifting trifecta. Perfect for a family gift for your neighbours, as a stocking filler for Dad or those tricky to buy for older tweens this is the gift that will give all year round. Always remember, one handed off the fence is out!
