My second niece will be arriving into the world this Friday – so this week I can’t help myself, I’ll be trying to find the perfect ‘first’ gift…
Weekend: so we headed on to met me gorgeous new niece on saturday and took with us a stuffed elephant for her which D and I both really liked.

Thursday: Even the cutest baby can have sleep issues – what about making their first soft toy from you a Sleep Sheep Plush Sound Machine that makes four Soothing and relaxing Sounds – mother’s heartbeat, spring showers, ocean surf and whale songs.
Wednesday: The first gift D gave to niece no.1 was a monkey, which she loves – so may as well stick with a winning idea! Here is a Monkey rattle, which I like the look of…
Tuesday: Ok I couldn’t help myself – another destination related gift! How fabulous is this alphabet canvas
Monday: Of course I have already started her first bank account which I’ll contribute to regularly until she is 18 when i’ll give her a lump sum to put towards an adventure – preferably of the travel variety! So why not encourage the travel bug early with Hugg-A-Planet Earth rattle
With Christmas just days away online shopping can no longer assist you, but hopefully I can provide you with some last minute gift inspiration…
Thursday: Just saw these downloadable gift certificates on the 7pm project tonight:

Monday: On Sunday I was in the Sydney CBD and was surprised to discover a fabulous range of gifts in Portmans. If you are looking for some great secret santa gifts or stocking stuffers, Portmans can definately help you out.
