The camera that’s making a huge comeback …

It seems these days that technology is progressing so fast that our heads are spinning constantly. This is why we adore seeing a comeback.

There’s a comfort with what you know – it takes less learning and understanding, plus there is this feeling of kinship.

The latest comeback this year is…

The Polaroid Snap Camera

Although it now has a slick, modern design, a built-in printer and some handy gadgetry. But don’t let that distract from those cherished memories. These upgrades are designed to make the Polaroid Snap much more memorable.

What To Order 4-5 Weeks Before Christmas

It’s Christmas in a few weeks (eek) – yes, only a short time to write your cards, order the turkey, finalise the Christmas party and order the gifts for your business buddies.

While we can’t help you with the first three on the list, we can definitely help with the last because even with only a few weeks to go, we still have plenty of options available as corporate gifts.

However, the window for ordering is up until the 7th December. This will give us ample time to confirm everything you need, order and send to you.

Our best options for Christmas:


This is one of our largest categories and is chock-full of choice. Whether it’s a quirky gadget, or a much-needed case, we have it.

A popular gift is the power pack. This handy device was covered in our ‘Tech Heads’ blog post and simply allows you to charge devices on the go.

A favourite is the trusty USB. Always useful and very nice branded. We have the stylish to the unusual and most size options.

5weeks-christmas-winterWinter Warmers

We are seeing the start of the cold weather this month, which means winter warmers are a practical choice.

We have an extensive range from many top brand names like Helly Hanson, Regatta and The North Face.


Venturing out at this time of year demands the addition of an umbrella. Though you may think all umbrellas are created equal, this is not the case. Our ranges cover double layer, sport, stormproof (almost indestructible).

We have all the colours too from simple single colours to something more personable and positive. Well – if you have to brave the storms, you may as well brave them with a cheery frontage!


5weeks-christmas-flasksFlasks and Mugs

With winter in mind, the flask is one of our front-runners (closely followed by the classic mug). If you know those who are cranky without a hot coffee and/or need that caffeine boost while working on a long project, then a flask should be on the list.

Kate in the office would not be impressed if we didn’t mention the ‘Mighty Mug’ – it’s the office saviour as it grips to the desk! (Bottom left in the graphic)

Luxe Vs Low-Cost

We understand that when it comes to Christmas corporate gifts, there’s a lot to consider: –

  • branded/unbranded
  • all the same item
  • different items per person or company
  • and of course, cost

Budget is actually one of the first questions we ask to help us make the best selections for you. And while you may feel that a lower cost item is not as well-received, we can tell you that this is not the case. A gift of any size or cost is always appreciated.

Whether you like to splurge or make a saving, we have an exquisite collection of gifts to suit any budget.

We have chosen five categories to showcase our Luxe Vs Low-cost options, proving that no matter the budget, you are guaranteed an exceptional gift!


Where would we be without our Christmas games? Bored between dinner and drinks, that’s where.









The flask is not just your outdoors companion, it’s also your indoor companion for keeping hot drinks hotter for longer.

Sound: Ear Buds

Storage on the go – in sizes from 1 GB upwards. So many styles from chic to cool.









A mini briefcase or portfolio is a dandy office gift. Who couldn’t put one of these to good use!
