Your Christmas shopping is sorted!

We all love to give and receive gifts at Christmastime!  Sometimes the joy of giving surpasses the receiving when the recipient squeals in obvious delight at what you have given!  Choosing something with them in mind shows thought and care, but can be overwhelming at times!  This week my newsletter subscribers received a series of gift guides to help get their Christmas shopping easily sorted!  Cross people off your list with these Resinating ideas…

Gifts for Teachers

At Christmastime it’s so lovely to reward your child’s teacher for a great year of going above and beyond for the entire class.  And what better way than with a pop of colour for their desk!

  • The Pop Planters ($15) are suitable for both male and female teachers (and the plant will survive the holidays!!) and add a lovely splash of colour to their home or school desk;
  • Trinket dishes ($12-15) come in many colours and look great filled with paperclips or small items that help to keep their desk tidy;
  • The floral brooches ($8) are a gorgeous handmade gift at a great price – especially if you have more than one teacher to buy for!
  • And the small bud vases look beautiful filled with a freshly picked flower.

All items available in assorted colours

Whatever you decide to give the teachers in your life this Christmas make sure to include a card handmade by your child – a joy to give and receive!! ♥

Gifts for Neighbours

They’ve collected your newspaper, brought your bin up when you were sick, watered your plants and let your cat sleep on their outdoor setting!  At Christmas it’s nice to be able to say thanks with a little gift of appreciation.

  • Make some shortbread biscuits and tie a mini heart or star on the packaging (or tape to a box of chocolates or bottle of wine if time is against you!) $8 set of 5

Christmas decorations make great gifts as they’re not something extra to find a permanent home for, and each Christmas when the tree and decorations are hauled out they bring memories and smiles as they are discovered and remembered! 


So there it is, my Resinating Gift Guide!

I hope you got lots of ideas to help you cross people off your list and make your festive season easier!
