Who gives a crap this Christmas? Kriskringle Edition

I'm in a number of groups - two book clubs, a mah jong group and a few others, and every Christmas, we get together for celebrations and I like to give little gifts - just tokens, like nice soaps, Christmas pasta, hand creams etc. This year, I'm giving paper - but not just any paper. Toilet paper.

It's festively wrapped, and all good things for the environment, and the best part, has a charity arm too. So it's win-win all round. I'm figuring my friends will find it funny, and I'm not filling up the world with more things they don't need. You'll find it at Who Gives a Crap.


I did manage to get these super cute decorations for $1.00 a piece at Papaya so they'll get one of those too.


Lastly, I've discovered the perfect useful Kris Kringle shop - The Chef & The Cook. They have a myriad of chocolates from around the world, plus the festive Freckleberry range, under $10. They also have spices, sauces and delectable delights you don't find elsewhere. One of the kids is mad for Christmas Crackers and they have the most amazing collection - from high end glamour ones of the 12 days of Christmas to these super cool magic ones that include magic tricks as the prizes.


Are you hunting around for a Kriskringle gift? What are you thinking of getting?
And don't for get the It's in the Bag toiletries are to be dropped off before the 11th.

  4. Ha! What a great idea. It's lovely to exchange small useful presents just to say "I remember and I care".

    1. Yes, I give out lots to book groups and mah Jong group etc, but only little tokens, yet that makes those that don't uncomfortable, even tho each year I bring them and they don't (if it worried me, I'd stop bringing them???) I just like to, as I enjoy my time with them...

    2. I gave it to the first lot - they all thought it was hilarious. One woman knew the company so she said "I love that company - it's so great!" when she say it in her bag. I don't think many people my age are greedy about presents, at least not ones I know. You had me worried it wouldn't be well received...

  15. Love the toilet paper, haha. I am still thinking about what to get family for Christmas. Not heading home for Christmas gives me a little extra time, because 12 months obviously isn't enough.

  16. I had no idea that toilet paper was a fundraiser as well. I was at my local op shop today and they had a Christmas table set up. Some fab stuff on it too.
