Last Minute Christmas Shopping Idea's

For those of you who are like me and rather unorganised for Christmas this year, Do you think I can blame it on the fact I had a baby four months ago? Probably not. Or for those of you who won't be getting paid from work until Christmas Eve I thought that I would make a very quick Christmas gift guide, as it might make a change from fighting over the last Lynk and Dove gift sets in boots or buying your own body weight in quality streets and selection boxes for people.

Chloe's Tweenager Christmas Eve Basket

A couple of day's ago you may have seen me post about creating my younger daughter Sophia a toddler Christmas eve basket which you can read about here . Well, I have also created her older sister Chloe (who is twelve year's old) one too. Obviously, as there is a huge age gap between my girl's  (10 years) I have put totally different things into Chloe's basket. But I have kept the idea similar pyjamas, an activity of some sort, some sweet treats and then I added a few extra little bits I have seen whilst out shopping.

December Degustabox

Last month you may have heard me mentioning Degustabox, which is a monthly food and drink subscription box service. For those of you who are unsure of the concept of subscription boxes you basically just sign up for and pay the monthly fee which is only £12.99 per month including posting and packaging and then once a month you will receive a box delivered to your door which is packed with between 9-14 surprise food and drink products. Each month the items in your box will be completely different and it is a great way to try out lots of new foods and drinks you may never have tried before. There is no long sign up commitment, you can cancel your box any time you like as long as it is before the 10th of the month. It really is as simple as that.

Sophia's Toddler Christmas Eve Basket

I love Christmas as it such a magical time of the year when you have children. As a mam, I am always looking for new Christmas traditions and new ideas of things that can make Christmas that little bit more magical and special for my children. Last year I seen a few people mention Christmas Eve boxes/baskets they had made and I thought they were such a lovely idea. So a Christmas Eve basket will be something nice for them to have on Christmas Eve morning to occupy them (hopefully).

Review: Bright Starts Nest And Sing Pots

Hand's up who still has Christmas shopping to do? I do. Every single year I say that I will get organised for Christmas early and every single year I am still doing some last-minute present shopping on Christmas Eve. One gift that I always find hard to buy is presents for young children, as a mam to two very young children I know that there is a huge selection of baby and toddler toys on the market, but to be honest a lot of them kind of do the same thing. So I am always on the look out for something a bit different when I am present buying - as I don't want to buy a gift that someone else will buy for my children.

So when Bright Starts asked if Sophia (18 months old) would like to try out the Nest 'n' Sing Pots of course I agreed. When Sophia was younger we had a Bright Starts bouncer and play mat for her which she loved. I never knew that they also made toys for toddlers and I had never seen the Nest 'n' Sing Pots before so I was really interested to see what they would be like.

Review: Tommee Tippee Gingerbread Gift Set

I love Tommee Tippee, I really do, they are without a doubt my number one baby product company. We have a house full of Tommee Tippee products from steriliser and bottle warmers to nail clippers and cutlery. Tommee Tippee is a brand that I have been using with all three of my children over the last twelve years of being a mum, they are a company that I know and trust as they make great baby products.

November- What A Month

I can not believe that it is now December, this year really has flown over so quickly! I really am certain that time speeds up once you are a parent. November turned out to be a rather great month for us, I always love November as it's my birthday month and its close to Christmas and I have an excuse to shop and spoil my children. I also love winter as it means cosy nights in, lazy pj days and stodgy home cooked meals like stews and roast dinners.

This November has been a pretty great month, it was my birthday on the 11th November- my parents should have called me Poppy saying as I was born on remembrance day. On my actual birthday, I did not do much as Jacob had his injections in the morning and then we had a baby group in the afternoon. However, we had a Chinese for tea (my favourite) and I got some lovely presents of Lee and the Children. I was treated to a long overdue haircut and colour and I opted for dark chocolate and caramel ombre hair and had a good few inches cut off to bring my hair back to life, as it was in a right state after having Jacob. I got a vanilla cupcake Yankee candle (I love them) and bath products, soap and glory things, smellies and chocolates. And the best bit was the other half done the night feeds and let me have a lie in, when you have a young baby sleep is the best gift ever!
