It’s in the post!

Gifts that are post-friendly!


This year Australia Post have advised that posting your Christmas gifts (or posting anything) should be done earlier than usual and delivery times will take longer.  This means that if you’re posting gifts for Christmas birthdays, or a “just because…” gift you’ll need to get your skates on to not just purchase the gift, but to get it mailed.

So, what is a good gift to post and what is possibly best to leave off the gift list?

Cost-wise sending letter sized parcels will be more friendly on your wallet than a parcel and the Australia Post size regulations for letters is a ‘package’ that weighs less than 500g, has a rectangular shape, is not larger than a B4 envelope, and is no thicker than 20mm.  This gives you lots of options for posting small items including books, wall decals (we’ve got you covered with those!), jewellery, stationery gifts, or even chocolates or sweets.  Of course, you can send larger items as a parcel, which will cost you a bit more but with the new standardised parcel rates (up to 22kg within Australia, or up to 20kg for international post) you can easily choose lighter gives and send more of them for less than you would have been paying previously to post!

Wall decals (of course!) – our wall decals and wall stickers are a perfect gift idea for anyone!  You could choose from one of our ready-made wall decals, or we can work with you to create something personalised and unique.  We’ve got a great range of colours from metallics to pastels to brights so we’re certain you’ll find just the right colour to suit your design and décor!  Our wall decals are made from a super high-quality vinyl that will leave no sticky marks or residue and will stay put on just about any flat and smooth surface (like magic!).

We’ve also got our Vinyl Living range of homewares that are light to post – cushion covers, tea-towels, and canvas bags and pouches of all sizes.  We’re sure that you could find something for every person on our list in our Vinyl Design and Vinyl Living online shops!

Handmade leather goods are a popular choice for people of all ages.  Dear Dagger intertwine craftsmanship, colour and premium leather to produce timeless, versatile and gender-neutral products such as wallets, pouches, coin holders, keychains, laptop sleeves and more.

Francisca Rendic’s handcrafted jewellery is made from the heart and so it makes sense that gifting such beautiful pieces is a gift from the heart too.  Francisca creates meaningful jewellery; each piece embedded with strength and energy.

Koskela always have a beautiful array of gift ideas for everyone (so good it’s hard to give them away!).  One product in their range that struck us as a great ‘feel-good’ gift idea is the Life Cykel Bee Pollination Grow Kit.  Saving the world, bee by bee!

And now for something sweet… Loco Love Chocolates Holy Cacao Hot Chocolate looks amazing in it’s packaging and tastes DIVINE!  What a perfect gift and oh so sweet!

If you’re needing to shop in person and have a penchant for Aussie handmade, we’d love to see you at our Artisans’ Nest popup shop in Newtown!  Our store is open from 10am daily and we’ll be at our 216 King Street Newtown (NSW) store until the end of the year … you don’t need to gift shop!

So, there you have it, just a few gift ideas for posting to your loved ones this gift-giving season.  We know there are literally thousands of other ideas for lightweight gifts to post but we hope we’ve given you a few ideas to get your shopping started!

We’d love you to share how and where you’ve used your Vinyl Designs decals and any of our blog picks with us – share on Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #vinyldesignaustralia or tag us @vinyldesign.

No, we’re not crazy but Christmas IS looming!

It’s absolutely not too soon to get your gifts and décor sorted for Christmas

Righty-o it is ‘only’ September and we’re talking Christmas … we can hear you; you think we’re crazy! But really, this year has been all sorts of crazy so we’re kinda just goin’ with the flow…!

One of our first September sales through our online shop was a Christmas Tree wall decal, so we do think we’ve got good reason to start thinking Christmas décor and gifts.

Christmas 2020 is going to come at us with a rush … after months of social distancing this Christmas is going to be like none we’ve experienced before so there is absolutely no time like right now to start getting ready! Let’s talk wall decals for decorating and gift giving with Christmas in mind … after all, wall decals, decorating and Christmas are a few of our most favourite things!

Planning wall-y (heehee) good Christmas décor

When most people think of Christmas decorating their mind immediately goes to untangling the Christmas lights or dragging out the boxes of kindy-made decorations that you’re obligated to hang for the next 50 or so years. Yes, those sweet Christmas traditions will linger and can wait until at least mid-November, but we’re touting the Christmas wall decal as the next best thing in ways to bring Christmas cheer to your home right now!

From fat Santas, to Christmas trees, to gold snowflakes we’ve got your walls (windows, mirrors, any smooth surface!) covered!

Our wall decals range includes so many different options for traditional Christmas décor, Aussie-inspired Christmas décor, or choose your own unique Christmas theme that’ll bring you and your family some much-needed 2020 holiday cheer!

Here are some of our favourite wall decals to create a Christmas-inspired home.

Christmas Tree wall decals: we’ve got six trees in our range, and of course your tree doesn’t need to be in a ‘traditional Christmas’ colour … we’ve got 28 great colours for you to choose from!

Our jolly Santa wall decal is as well rounded as you’d expect him to be! Picture Santa over your kitchen bench as you bake up a storm of Christmas treats!

Christmas Baubles wall decal or the Christmas Balls wall decal look great over your mantle or a shelf.

Snowflakes wall decal and Mini Snowflakes wall decals look great either on their own or mixed up together to create a snowflake dream.

The Christmas Wreath wall decal looks so festive on a window or front door.

Sometimes all you need is a little sparkle! Our Stars wall decal set comes with 40 stars in varying sizes and with so many colours to choose from they don’t need to be just part of your Christmas décor.

It might look like you’ve gone dotty but our Dots wall decals and Mini Dots wall decals do make a fun combo and a little different to the ‘traditional’ Christmas shapes!

We LOVE doing custom wall decals too! Does your family have a favourite Christmas quote, or maybe you’ve got a Christmas design of your own that you’d like to have made up as a wall decal? Get in touch with us and let’s see if we can make this happen for you!

Why decorate with Vinyl Design’s wall decals?

All of our wall decals are removable and don’t leave any sticky residue or mess which make them perfect for anyone who loves to switch up their décor, and also for renters who love to decorate.

Wall decals for gifting

All of our wall decals are perfect for sending overseas for gifts … they’re light-weight and pack down flat which is a plus for being one of the most postage-friendly options. We all know it’s a given that postage services around the world are moving much slower at the moment than usual and with that in mind getting organised with your overseas gifts early this year is a very good idea! We offer free shipping Australia-wide so getting your list together for décor AND gifts from across the Vinyl Design and Vinyl Living ranges means you can get everything sorted at once!
