Toddlers Christmas Gift Guide 2017

AD | Gifted items Erin will be 2 on New Year’s Day so we’re always on the look out for things to buy her either for Christmas or her birthday. Everything happening in the space of a week means quite a lot of planning on our part. With Erin getting presents so close to each other, I like to try to make what she gets varied and different and I think our Toddlers Christmas Gift Guide for 2017 reflects this! Erin got her first Duplo set for her birthday last year and she spends hours playing

Personalised Christmas Gifts From GiftsOnline4U

Now that it is October, Christmas is coming around really fast and it will be here before we know it. With Erin’s birthday being on New Year’s Day, Christmas is an absolutely manic time for me and my family. I tend to shop all year round when I can and pick up things for people as and when I find them. I have had a good head start on my Christmas shopping this year and I have found some fantastic gifts both in the shops and online. One of my go to places for personalised

In fact, I think you’d need to live under a rock to not know what an emoji is. Penguin have come up with some great emoji books this Christmas and they make fantastic stocking fillers.

Curl Up With Some Christmas Fiction

AD | Gifted items A few days ago I posted about my favourite books this year for children at Christmas. Today is all about adult fiction with a Christmas theme! I find reading about Christmas really helps to get me in the mood and these three books are perfect for that! Mistletoe on 34th Street by Lisa Dickenson Olivia has never experienced a snow-covered, ‘traditional’ Christmas before. Having grown up in a family that chose winter sun over decking the halls, she’s not sure what all the fuss is about. So when she and her colleagues

A Penguin Random House Christmas

AD | Gifted items If you didn’t know, Me, him, the dog and a baby!was originally a book review blog many years ago! Books do feature quite heavily in my Christmas Gift Ideas posts because they are such a big part of my family’s lives.

One publisher, Penguin Random House, has an utterly amazing range of Christmas gifts. There is a Doctor Who (beautiful) box set, a crafty postcard box and a fashion book from

Snuggle up in a SnuggleSac

I love finding a local company that makes a fantastic product. We live in a big, old, Victorian house that is drafty and cold. We don’t have central heating so when I find something to help us, and Erin stay warm, I get excited. The SnuggleSac is perfect for us! Now that Erin is nearly a year old we’re looking to get her out of the normal baby sleeping bag and into something a bit more grown up. On a recent visit to my mum’s, Erin had a duvet for the first time and she
