Here are some last-minute gift ideas that you can order online and don't require wrapping! Both Clare and myself came into Classlist HQ yesterday weighed down by the mental load of being working parents with three kids each and way behind with our Christmas shopping. As we realised we didn’t have enough time to choose thoughtful gifts and meet any of the last delivery deadlines, a mild panic permeated across the office to say the least.
Our mission at Classlist is to make parent life easier and schools community stronger. As we started to book last minute experiential gifts for our loved ones, we thought we would share our shortlist of personal recommendations. We would like to help make your Christmas preparations a little easier and a bit less stressful. Not only will you not have to worry about being around for deliveries, you will get kudos for gifts that are more eco-friendly, less materialistic orientated and on-trend, too!
