All it takes to bring back a flood of happy childhood memories is to think of my Nonna (Italian for Grandmother). She was such an impressive part of my childhood, specifically, all the best parts of my childhood. Spoiled silly by her in every way, she made being a kid so much fun and I will forever be grateful for the memories. This special bond between a Nana and her grandchildren is what inspired Kelly of Nana Clair’s Gifts – www.nanaclairsgifts.com.au – to name her store after her lovely Nana Clair.
Nana Clair’s Gifts stock a wide range of brands including: B.Box, Bobble Art, Djeco Products, Missi Missi, Nana Huchy, Le Toy Van and Sparkle T. The store’s virtual shelves are lined with quality toys and gifts to suit all budgets this Christmas – so, if you are looking for stocking stuffers or for items with the wow factor, you have come to the right place. My *favourite* gift for girls is the Le Toy Van – Honeybake Baking Set (pictured at #11 below). It comes complete with a food mixer with a rotating whisk and mixing bowl, a rolling pin, knife, tea cakes with tasty interchangeable toppings, a velcro swiss roll cake that can be sliced, a beautiful cake stand, a baking tray and an apron! Maybe if I had been given one of these as a child I’d be a better cook now! There is also a great range of gifts for boys, including the Red Farmall Tractor with its great vintage appeal and amazing detail, and the Chevy Fire Truck, perfect for any budding rescuers out there. For babies you cannot go past the Bella rattles, with many of them under $15.00 they are a bargain gift for a wee little babe – this bib and rattle combination in the Pirate design is my fave!
Being a bit of a neat freak, I am already thinking ahead about where I am going to store all the lovely gifts my children will receive this Christmas. Not to worry though, Nana Clair’s Gifts can help me there too – they stock the sturdy Missi Missi Collapsible Storage Boxes in a range of different colours and patterns (plus they coordinate perfectly with the super funky Missi Missi Beanbags). Made from the same strong and durable leather like material that the Bean Bags are made from, the boxes are easily wiped clean and perfect to hide away all the little bits and bobs that kids seem to accumulate daily!
