What is the perfect Kris Kringle gift?

It is that time of the year when the people you work with or the group you play netball with - or maybe even your family - decide that the best way to share some Christmas cheer is to have a Kris Kringle or KK gift exchange, you might even call it Secret Santa.

These days, technology makes it so easy to organise a Kris Kringle. There are plenty of generators on the internet that allow you to put in everyone’s name and even apply filters so that when the list is generated, you aren’t paired up with particular people.

For example, in the Stinchcombe family Kris Kringle, we make sure no-one is allocated someone in their direct family by using Draw Names. You can of course still do it the old fashioned way where everyone’s name is put into a ‘hat’ and each person draws the name of the person they will buy for. Once you know who you are buying for, is where it gets tricky! How do you decide what to buy for your Kris Kringle?

Here at Nerridah & Ross, we have a range of gifts that are perfectly priced for Kris Kringle. Read on!

Surf Coast Candles' range of travel tins allow you to take your favourite fragrance with you wherever you go.

Does the person you are buying for deserve some time to relax? A Bath & Body Duo will be a Kris Kringle present they will love. Handcrafted in Maleny on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland by The Soap Bar, this pack contains a bath bomb and soap, perfect for spoiling.

Maybe the person you are buying for is always on their computer, if so, a usb salt lamp is a great choice. The mini USB salt lamp plugs into a USB port or straight into their computer, dancing through all the colours of the spectrum – pink, magenta, purple, blue, aqua and green. Made from Himalayan salt, they are said to have many benefits including reducing impurities in the air by generating negative ions through the heat of the globe; improving concentration and they are a fantastic mood lifter through the tranquil, calm and relaxing glow.
