Ok so this isn’t my REAL wishlist … because in our family we have decided in the last few years to keep gift giving to handmade and small gifts under $20!
But I love pretty things (and making lists!) so this is my wishful Christmas wishlist!
All festive themed and available from New Zealand businesses! I hope you can find some inspiring ideas for your own Christmas shopping … and wishing ♥

The Foodbank Project Christmas Bundles
All of us know Christmas is a time that really stretches the budget … and for many kiwis there is sadly no budget at all. The Foodbank Project is an easy peasy way to help those in need this festive season – just add a bundle or individual most needed items to your donation “cart” – it’s as simple as online shopping!
I really like that they have included a Feminine Hygiene bundle – an often overlooked aspect of being in need that no woman should have to suffer!Feminine Hygiene Bundle $15 – shop here
Small Christmas Bundle $29.94 – shop here
Medium Christmas Bundle $60.02 – shop here
