Looking for great Christmas gift ideas? Christmas is around the corner and we are looking forward to getting together with, and hearing from old friends, family and those we love from both near and far. It is a time of traditions, special meals, music and most of all a wondrous time for young children; dazzled by bright colourful lights, stories and Santa Claus. One of my first happy Christmas memories is being with family at the beach and the joy that children derive from this special time of the year. Here are my favourite Christmas articles with many great Christmas gift ideas:

Just like the ones I used to know

and children listen
to hear sleigh bells in the snow

4. 12 Christmas gift basket ideas
First of all these Christmas gift basket ideas are simple to put together and always a hit. They are based on a basket, cello wrap and lots of ribbon, a card and a bit of imagination choosing the contents with almost endless variations. Easy to do yourself, adding your personal touches with gifts you know the recipient enjoys. Excellent, all occasion gift ideas. Finally, Christmas would not be the same without chocolate treats and Mum’s no-bake truffles.

Hoping some of these gift suggestions will inspire your own unique and creative ideas. As Christmas is also a wonderful time to give back to others perhaps a donation to a charity on behalf of a family member since this simple gesture is all that is needed to create happy memories for others who may not be as fortunate as ourselves. Joy to you and your family and blessings in the New Year.
