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. We all like very different genres and kinds of books so I think showcasing different products is perfect for Christmas. 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

The Happy Book Club

AD | Collaborative post  There are so many subscription boxes available but this one is by far one of my favourites. As I said in my earlier post today, we’re very much a family about books. When I came across The Happy Book Club I knew that it was something for us. The Happy Book Club send out a themed package at the beginning of each month that also comes with some extras. The packages are tailored to your child’s age which is what makes this so perfect. We got the October package where the theme

Christmas Books for Children

One of the first things I bought for Erin before she was even born was a book. Most of my family read a lot albeit very different genres. It was a given really that Erin would grow up surrounded by books. So, I thought I’d do a bit of a post about some of my favourite Christmas books this year! Walker Books The Christmas Eve Tree by Deliah Huddy and Emily Sutton When the ugly little fir tree is taken to the city, no one wants to buy him; they prefer the big tall trees.

Personalised gifts by Beach Hut Charm

Nearly a year ago now I lost my beloved Tiffany necklace in the crazy event of Erin being born. Since then I had been searching for something to replace it. It had to be super special though. I came across a very local company called Beach Hut Charm. When I say local, the owner Emma lives about 10 minutes away from me. I I had seen some of Emma’s products at local craft fairs and had fallen in love. Beach Hut Charm offers bespoke handmade silver jewellery which can be personalised in many different ways. I was specifically
