Donating gifts this Christmas

30 Nov 2023

While many of us eagerly anticipate the joy and warmth that Christmas brings, it's important to remember that not everyone is fortunate enough to experience the same festive cheer.

As part of our ongoing efforts to spread love and compassion, we are organising a special gift drive  this Christmas within our local hospitals. Our goal is to bring smiles to the faces of those who may find the holiday season challenging due to challenging health circumstances.

This is where you come in! We are reaching out to our wonderful community to kindly contribute and make a difference in the lives of those in need. Your generosity can truly brighten someone's Christmas and make it a memorable and special time for them.


Here's how you can help:

Donate a Gift: Consider donating a new, unwrapped gift before December 15. Wishlist does receive many toys for young children, but teenagers and the elderly often miss out. Here are some ideas: 

Gift ideas: 
  • Vouchers from Rebel Sport, JB Hi Fi, Sunshine Plaza, Coles, Woolworths or Bunnings.
  • Skincare or haircare products like hair dryers or hair straighteners.
  • Gifts for teens like items from surf shops, remote control items, fishing gear, scooters, sensory items like fidget spinners, weighted toys, arts and crafts, handheld games, earbuds and electronics.
  • Gifts for seniors such as crossword or puzzle books, food hampers, toiletries, moisturisers and soaps.
  • Baby toys: Safe toys and clothing for ages newborn to 12 months.

Monetary Contributions: If time constraints make shopping difficult, monetary donations are also greatly appreciated. You can plant a daisy in Wishlist's virtual garden for just $25 here, and support Wishlist's work helping local families.

Spread the Word: Share this initiative with friends, family, and colleagues. The more people involved, the greater the impact we can make together.
