Encouraging Education Through Play

AD | Paid collaboration For some time now we have been spending a lot more time at home as a family and we are keen to keep up Erin’s education before she is due to start Reception in September. As none of us are teachers, and really don’t know much about what a 4 year old needs to learn, we turn to online resources and shops to help us out. This is also a great time for family members to order gifts online, when they might not be able to see someone in person. The thing about education is that

Out Of This World Gifts For Star Wars Fans

When I first met John I quite quickly found out that there was two things he really enjoyed; Harry Potter and Star Wars. I don’t think he was at all impressed when I told him I hadn’t actually seen a Star Wars film at this point (that’s not the case now). With John’s birthday being only a couple of days ago I thought it would be appropriate to write about some Star Wars themed birthday presents from Urban Gifts. Sometimes I think it’s nice to get gifts that go well together and I found a fantastic set with the Stormtrooper Decanter

Men’s Birthday Gift Ideas

Does anyone else struggle when it comes to gift ideas for their other halves? John’s birthday is just a couple of weeks away now but Father’s Day wasn’t that long ago which means he had some presents quite recently so thinking of great gifts for him sometimes isn’t very easy. I’ve tried to come up with some ideas for gifts to suit a range of tastes. Here you’ll find all sorts from chocolate to clothes to being able to find about more about your ancestry! Of course, if it’s someone’s birthday the first thing to think about is a birthday

What To Buy As A Housewarming Gift

My sister has been living with us since December after being made redundant and her fiancé moved in a couple of months ago. Yesterday they picked up the keys to the house they’ll be renting so that means that today they are moving out! Moving house can be an expensive and stressful time but it’s really nice if family and friends buy a housewarming gift. Today I’m sharing with you a few ideas for what might make a great housewarming gift. Something I remember needing when we moved in to our house was a fruit bowl. It seems to be

Solving Present Problems With Wicked Uncle Big Kidz

AD | Gifted product When it comes to buying presents there are generally a few websites I go to first. For Erin I absolutely love Wicked Uncle as the choice they offer is fantastic and they always have things I have never seen elsewhere. However, until recently I thought that Wicked Uncle was just for children. It turns out they have something for everyone with gifts for babies all the up to the oldest of adults. Yep, they have gift ideas for Big Kidz! When I first heard about the Big Kidz category I was really excited. Not only do

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

AD | Gifted items Father’s Day is only a month away now so there is still plenty of time to think about what to buy for the men in your life this year. Last year Erin was too young to understand what was going on but she’s really starting to get the idea of birthdays or presents now so we’ll be making a bit more of a big deal of Father’s Day time year. We’re really lucky that John is really easy to get presents for but here are some great ideas for gifts if you are a bit stuck

Alternative Easter Gifts For Children

AD | Gifted products You may have read my post a couple of days ago about edible Easter treats for the whole family. I’m very mindful about how many Easter eggs Erin gets for Easter and how much sugar she is allowed in one go. It is easy to over indulge children at this time of year but there are plenty of other things you can do as a gift instead of a chocolate egg. So, here are some ideas for alternative Easter gifts for children. I LOVE getting new clothes for Erin and she also seems to get quite

Giving Jewellery As The Perfect Present

It’s my birthday in just under a week and I’ll be turning 32. I had to check that though because I’m terrible for forgetting how old I really am. I spent so many years lying about my age as a teenager to get into pubs years before I should have been in them so now it all gets a bit fuzzy. Anyway, it’s gotten me thinking about what I would really like for my birthday this year and jewellery is always a great option! For Christmas in 2016 Mum bought me a charm bracelet, something I have wanted for a
