Christmas 2023 Gift Ideas & Giveaways! Win Amazing Christmas Gifts for Everyone in the Family

As the festive season approaches, the quest for the perfect Christmas gifts begins. However, finding ideal presents for your loved ones can be a daunting task. Whether you’re shopping for a fun-loving child, tech-savvy teen, gastronomist grandparent, beauty-conscious mum, or fitness-obsessed dad, this guide offers a curated selection of ideas to make their Christmas 2023 truly special. PLUS… in the spirit of the season, we have giveaways up for grabs too!

For the bread connoisseur 🎄 BALMUDA The Toaster

Few brands succeed in making kitchen appliances functional, yet sexy; BALMUDA goes above and beyond with its flagship product, The Toaster (yes, with a ‘the’). A TikTok sensation, this iconic Japanese toaster earns raves for its ability to ‘zhng’ old bread and turn it into perfect toast — crisp on the outside, fluffy and soft on the inside — using steam technology and precise temperature control. It can do the same for pastries and croissants too, making all our daily breads divine indeed. $539 online and at Takashimaya.
