 At koolaman designs we just love Christmas. The lead up to Christmas, although hectic, is very exciting for the team at the koolaman hub. We can’t help but get excited seeing Christmas decorations popping up. We love the chatter and discussion about Christmas parties and hearing how others celebrate this special occasion. We look forward to seeing the joy on the faces of our children once the Christmas tree is up and reading over those beautiful notes written to Santa prior to sending them to the North Pole. There is always a buzz in the air in the last few weeks of December too. The Christmas cheer takes over as people start to wind down at the end of the year in order to celebrate Christmas day and the coming holiday season.
Lisa and Stacey can't wait to share Christmas with their beautiful children
To kick start the festive season, we have decided to provide all our Facebook, Twitter and Blog followers with the opportunity to win one piece from the koolaman designs collection, every week for the next four weeks. Each week on our Blog we will ask you a question relating to Christmas. All you need to do is answer the question in the comments section of the Blog and post your comment on Facebook to be eligible to win. We think this a fantastic way to get you into the Christmas spirit. We would love you to join us as we count down the weeks until Christmas.

Now is the time to place your koolaman designs Christmas order. This way we can ensure your purchase arrives in time to give it to that special person for a Christmas gift or if for yourself, it will arrive in time to make you feel special over the festive period.  Check our online store for details relating to all Christmas delivery cut off dates.

If you would like to order a BILLIE, like the one above, you need to HURRY. ALL orders for pieces from the HIDE COLLECTION close on December 1, 2012
We are also providing free REGISTERED POST only, to anywhere in Australia to reward those who get in early and place Christmas orders this week.

So go on, get ordering and put that extra saving toward beautiful pieces like these, which are from our Silver Pendant collection.

In the first week of koolaman Christmas my true love gave to me a BANJO with MAMA PENDANT. We would like to give this piece from our new HIDE COLLECTION away to one lucky entrant. All you need to do is tell us which koolaman designs piece would make all your Christmases come at once and why? Place your answer in the comments section of this Blog and then head over to our Facebook page and share your answer with all our Facebook Friends too.  It’s that simple.
Could the BANJO with MAMA PENDANT make all your Chistmases come at once?

The most interesting and creative entry will be judged the winner as determined by staff at the koolaman designs hub.

Don’t forget to check our online store to see where our pop-up-shops will be located in November and December. We may be headed to a destination near you soon. 

Wow, the SILVER SEEDS display at the BOWERBIRD BAZAAR Pop-Up-Shop in Adelaide looked exquisite!

With there names & the beauty of the pendant would be just so special! you guys make the most amazing jewellery it just melts ur heart its so beautiful! this would def make all my christmas's come at once. Katie xx

    1. sorry forgot to add my email!

  2. After receiving my beautiful Alice pendant (with the names of our four wonderful boys on it) for my birthday last year from my wonderful husband, I think he would love to get the new Ned piece as a celebration of our 15th wedding anniversary this year.

  3. I have the most beautiful, caring husband in the world who became a father at 18 and has been adoring his three (now adult) children and me ever since. It would make all my Christmas's come at once if i could provide him with a tangible reminder of them every day in the form of a Banjo with Mama pendant. At a still hip 45, he would love it!!!!!

    1. oops.
      Thanks :)

  4. Being part Mama and part rock chick, I would love the Billie bracelet - with the leather and silver, it really rocks out in a funky fashion way with cool character.

  5. Simply I love all things BANJO! Such an iconic Australian much so we named our little boy after the great man Banjo Patterson. To see Banjo and his siblings on a Banjo band would just put a huge grin on my husbands face.

    1. Just to add, email is

  6. The banjo would make all christmas come at once because it is the perfect reminder of how important family is especially around Christmas time.

  7. Today I was asked by my husband and daughter what I wanted for Christmas, I had no idea. That was until I came across Koolaman Designs, the Banjo Mama bracelet would be a perfect gift. I love the design of leather and silver and the fact that it can be personalised.

  8. I would love the banjo mama bracelet a it looks smart and can be personlised and i would put my grandsons name and birth details on it so i keep him with me all the time

  9. The Grace pendant that i just ordered and it confirms how blessed and lucky i am to have two healthy, beautiful and active kids! Christmas is a time to reflect how special our family is, and the grace pendant is a constant reminder of this

  10. I fell in love with STELLA from the moment I saw her, saved her to my home screen and dreamt about her every night. I'm sure if I bought her home my husband would fall in love with her too!!

  11. I would love this exact banjo for my dad I think he deserves something special for once he is hard working and recently lost his father so I think it would cheer up his christmas abit :)

  12. A Mia pendant would make all my Christmas's come at once. Been waiting for 15 years for wedding proposal, always said i'd be quite happy for Koolaman Design Mia pendant in place of ring. Can then add our precious three children's names.

  13. I would love a Penny pendant on a chain. I would love to be able to fit my family's names (hubby & 3 darling kids). I'd really love Hubby to buy one, but as he hasn't bought me any jewellery since our first was born I'm not counting on it!

  14. Josie

    Only 4 weeks till xmas
    One of these beautiful deigns would make me happy
    Loving all the range
    My family would love these aswell
    Amazing products
    Now fingers crossed and see if I am a lucky winner.

  15. All my Christmas's would come at once with a billie as my first grandchild is named billee and this is our first Christmas with her and I carnt wait

  16. The BANJO with MAMA PENDANT would light up my husbands face on Christmas morning. He is a tough country bloke but if this was stamped with W & L, (his two sons are william and Lachlan) it would melt his heart and all my christmas's would come at once.

  17. Christmas comes but once a year,
    Yet my mum is constantly on call for help and cheer.
    Helping with toddler and bub,
    Keeping me sane and the fridge stocked with ice cream by the tub.
    The Grace golden pendant would be the perfect gift,
    To show her my love and give her a lift.
    Stamped with the name of her three grand kids,
    So she could hold them close to her heart, their love not to be hid.
