Now when I say wicked, I don’t mean wicked as in evil wicked; I mean wicked as in awesome wicked. Which is exactly what Wicked Uncle are. Especially for last minute Christmas shopping! I’m almost done with mine, but I do have a few little bits still to get this week. I am not usually as unorganised as this – I’m normally all done with wrapping by now! Luckily the boys still have another four days at school, so hopefully I’ll manage to get some done then. Read more
A hamper is one of my favourite gifts to give at Christmastime. Whether to say thank you, Merry Christmas, or just to treat a special someone to lots of delicious treats in one box. Prior to having the boys I made the effort to make my own treats for my own foodie hampers and they went down a storm. Since then, I barely get time to bake goodies for myself, never mind anyone else! So a pre-made hamper with ready to go items is a good place to start. Prestige Hampers can do just the job for you.
Somehow I seem to find adults easier to buy gifts for than children – though usually it’s a gift card or a bottle of booze! Practical items too, and the token joke gift. The Husband will be getting mostly practical this year!
If you’re still shopping for the adults in your life, hopefully there are a few ideas for you below in the final one of my series of Christmas gift ideas.
Whether it’s mine or somebody else’s, I usually find children difficult to buy presents for – especially at Christmas! If you’re the same and still looking for ideas, you’ve come to the right place. There’s quite a variety of gifts below for children of primary school age, so hopefully you’ll be able to find something suitable. Happy shopping!
Let’s talk school run style. Well, we’ll start with school mornings in general. I’m not a fan, in all honesty. I’m really not an early bird, the boys just mess about eating their breakfast and getting dressed, they argue; but I do like being on time. I get anxious if we’re even running one minute late. So I’m the school run mum that just jumps out of bed and chucks my clothes on, ties my hair back, and doesn’t put any makeup on. I’m only a special occasion wearer of makeup to be honest!
I know we’re all different, and some parents go straight to work from school so they may need to make a bit more effort. But if you’re like me, then you want to be comfortable but still look a bit stylish too. I wouldn’t call myself a style icon (ha!) but I do like wearing bright colours; which thinking about it, is a bit strange for somebody who likes to blend into the background! I also like at least two of my garments to match, or complement each other, colour wise – so maybe I do make a little more effort than it first seems!
