Declutter Book Shelves or Ornament Shelves
Remove items for shelving units that you no longer want or need. They could be books, ornaments, magazines etc. Dontate these items to your local charity. Below is the shelving unit in my craft room, which is where I am keeping my new Christmas Wrapping Station.

Christmas Platter and Cookie Plate
Perhaps this may not be a gift to give at Christmas, but they certainly pretty enough to use at Christmas.
Wonderland Melamine Long Platter and Cookie Plate from Myer
Purchase an Elf on the Shelf from The Book Depository, they are the cheapest I have found and offer free shipping to Australia. Use the Elf on the Shelf Planner, notes from Elf, letters from Santa acknowledging good and bad behaviour, plus elf report and more.
