It seems crazy to be talking about Christmas – where has this year gone?! – but, somehow, it’s fast approaching. Eek! Don’t fret, though – we’ve got your Christmas shopping sorted with a gift for every family member.
FOR YOUR DAUGHTER
Whether you’ve got a girly girl or a tom-boy on your hands, she’ll love the animal-themed prints on our various SoYoung products. The grade school backpack in ‘Bunny Tile’ features a gorgeous black and white bunny print, which perfectly suits the uncoated linen the backpack is made from. Pair it with the SoYoung lunchbox in the same print – or mix it up with another of our favourites, ‘Lucky Unicorn’ – and watch her eyes widen on Christmas morning when she realises how cool she’s going to look on her first day back at school.
(Plus, you’ve got a bit of your ‘back to school’ shopping sorted. Win, win.)
FOR YOUR SON
Surfer dudes aren’t the only ones who love the Yumbox x SoYoung collaboration! The lunchbag – which features a radical retro combi van – comes in blue or orange, and perfectly fits a Yumbox Original/Panino AND a Yumbox Minisnack, plus a Yumbox ice pack or two. The best part? The SoYoung lunchbag was designed with Yumbox’s ‘California Cool’ range in mind, so the two go perfectly together – we recommend the colours ‘Blue Fish’ or ‘Surf Green’ for your little grommet.
FOR YOUR TEEN
While the appeal of matchy-matchy school products might have worn off by the teenage years, everyone loves some stylish lunchware. The new SoYoung Paper and Modern collections are exactly that, with a range of colours from light patterns to black paper. Pair them with a Yumbox Tapas and a large black or white Drink in the Box (they come clear or opaque, as well as in all of the classic Precidio colours) and your teen will have the best looking lunch in the schoolyard.
FOR YOUR TODDLER
Toddlers love toys, and parents love products that make mealtime easier. Combine the two, and you’re giving your toddler the perfect gift – for both them and you! We’ve written before how you can turn a FunBites food cutter into the perfect playmate, while the entire WeinMeister range is non-toxic, bacteria resistant and dishwasher safe, meaning things like the Scoopsy Plate and the spatula can go from mealtime to playtime easily.
FOR YOUR MUM
No one can say no to a gift that is both stylish and functional, and SoYoung’s Emerson Tote is the perfect combination of the two. Perfect whether your mum is on or off her grandma duties, this bag has space for everything – we mean everything! – and is made from quality canvas, meaning it’s both beautiful and durable. From the shops to the park to the beach to the movies, the Emerson Tote will go everywhere with her.
FOR YOUR DAD
If your dad is notoriously hard to buy for, listen up. The Charlie bag by SoYoung is the ultimate unisex carry-all, perfect for work, the gym or travel – or days spent watching the grandkids! Much like the Emerson, the Charlie is sturdy and durable, and comes in three stylish colours: khaki, navy and black. With both a detachable messenger strap and a backpack conversion option, it’s the bag for the guy on the go – whoever that may be!
FOR YOUR NEICE OR NEPHEW
Score major aunty or uncle brownie points with a gift that’s too cool for school. The Firefly safety reflectors are the ultimate schoolbag collectable, with a whole range of different shapes and characters to clip onto any bag you like! Add to that a gorgeous Yumbox poche – which can fit just about any slim, rectangular container in it, or act as a protective case for their iPad or tablet on the go – in a range of different colours and styles, and you’ll be their favourite in no time.
FOR YOUR FRIENDS
If you’re attending friend-mas celebrations or simply want to give a gift to your nearest and dearest, the Tasty Tummies Recipe Book is one of the best. Written by two of our favourites, Kylie from Kidgredients and Lauren from Create Bake Make, this book is full of 14 lunchbox and Thermomix friendly recipes to get you inspired for the school year ahead!
