Welcome to the first annual Mamamia DIY gift guide

You know, I could have compiled a list of gifts that I thought were neat and published photos of them with little blurbs about why they’re so great and who you should buy them for.

That’s what many magazines and websites do at this time of you. But if you’ve been here longer than 5 minutes you’ll know I’m not that organised. ESPECIALLY at this time of year.

So we’re going to shake things up a little.

We’re going to use our collective wisdom to help each other with gift suggestions and advice.

Here’s how it works. If you have someone in your life you need to buy a gift for – say, a 7 year old nephew –  and you have no idea what 7 year old boys are into, just leave a comment and underneath, those who DO have a clue about your particular gift dilemma can leave their suggestions.


It doesn’t just have to be kids obviously. Nannas can be a bitch to buy for. All help is welcome.

I am going to go first with the first comment which I will leave after I’ve posted this.

See? That’s called multi-tasking. Or something.

This way, we all get to help each other which is surely what Christmas is about. Isn’t it???
