We’re More Than Just Books, You Know …

Recently I had to attend an important event in the family calendar – the 1st birthday of a niece. My other half and I had known about the party for over three months, the pink invite staring at us each time we reached for a drink from the fridge. The party was on a Saturday morning at 11am, and we had to leave early to ensure we made it to the house on time (they lived a few hours west in semi-rural suburbia). This meant there was no time for me to do what I do best when it comes to gift buying – the quick Saturday morning shop-and-wrap session. It was 3.30pm on the day before the party when my internal emergency alarm went off. Woop! Woop! Woop! WE DON’T HAVE A PRESENT! I’d always intended on getting one. But, you know, life kinda got in the way. And there was no way we could turn up to this party without a gift – the tsk tsks would be louder than the Wiggles soundtrack and crying kids combined.

Thankfully, my office is within dashing distance of a Co-op store, and I was able to run in and pick up a few cute pressies, including The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Touch & Feel  and the oh so ah-mazing Chill Baby Goatee dummy (doesn’t matter if a baby girl is wearing a goatee, does it?). Crisis averted. Well, that one anyway. I won’t tell you what happened at the party – let’s just say it involved a tricycle, a cake and a whole lot of cleaning up. :/

So for all those people who, like me, leave everything to the last minute, I’ve done a little community service and put together a list of cool gifts you can grab on the go at the Co-op. There are 54 stores in total around uni campuses – just drop in between tutes or before beers at the bar.
