Top 10 School Holiday Essentials

With school holidays now upon us, we’ve put together a Top 10 Holiday Essentials list that will keep all members of your family happy and entertained over the break!

A short trip to Homeworld Helensvale, with convenient parking and coffee in hand, will have your school holidays sorted.

Happy shopping!

1. JB HI-FI – Noise-cancelling headphones

Ideal for long car trips, early morning beach runs, and overtired children noises. Currently available in-store at JB HI-FI.

2. Chemist Warehouse – Sunscreen

Fingers crossed you’ll be #blessed with blue skies during your time away, and reapplication of sunscreen is a must. Pick up this Cancer Council Ultra SPF 50+ 1L at Chemist Warehouse, where your family’s sunscreen, medical and cosmetics needs are sorted.


4. Sheridan Outlet – Towel Poncho

School swimming lessons often see goggles and towels (somehow?) go missing. Pop into the Sheridan Outlet and pick up these stylish and oh-so-snuggly towel ponchos for long-lasting quality and practicality. Surely a wearable towel can’t be misplaced??

6. Mr Toys – Boogie Board

Hitting the beach? Need a child’s boogie board? You won’t go wrong with the universally adored Bluey. Or if you’re heading inland – Mr Toys at Homeworld Helensvale has aisles and aisles of board games, Lego, puzzles (and the ever-popular slime!) Just try and visit sans children or you’ll be there for hours!

Phone cameras are convenient, but real cameras deliver. Capture amazing memories properly with this stunning NIKON or choose another from the significant range at Videopro Homeworld Helensvale. A digital camera will make all the difference to your happy family snaps.

Ensuring your little ones settle in quickly to your holiday home (or campsite) can be made easier with a nightlight. These wireless (no trip cords!) soft, and cool-to-touch USB-charged night lights are super cute and have six levels of brightness. See more of the range in-store.
