Daisy’s Gift Guide – great gifts for a toddler

Our beautiful little Daisy turned 2 recently. We celebrated her day with family, and it was a lovely day. Also, Daisy had a plethora of lovely toys, some of which I’m going to share with you today. This is my guide of great gifts for a toddler. All items have been tested by Daisy for the past few weeks so you can be sure that they are sturdy, tough, hard to break, easy to clean and great fun too!

Support Breast Cancer Care this Mother’s Day with Buyagift and the Superwoman Smartbox

Regular readers of my blog will know that I love Buyagift! I’ve worked with them a few times in the last year, including a Trip To The Shard and soon Thomas and I will be going for an overnight hotel stay as well! Recently some friends of ours were celebrating their 40th Birthday so we bought them a Taste of Italy Smartbox from Buyagift. Best of all I found a 10% discount code on the website which saved us a few pounds too! Anyway, today I want to talk to you about Mother’s Day which is THIS SUNDAY! This Mother’s Day you can help support Breast Cancer while treating your Mum to the gift that she truly deserves.

Send your Valentine a gift across the miles with My Parcel Delivery

That time of year is here once again, when heart-shaped chocolates, teddy bears, and an endless supply of affectionate cards dominate the aisles of the shops. Valentine’s Day is no longer a romantic day just for couples, with lots of people choosing to spend it with their friends and family… or even their pets. Unfortunately, some couples are unable to spend the special day together, whether that’s due to living in different cities or having to work away from home a lot. Not to worry, you can still make sure that a thoughtful gift reaches your significant other, no matter how many miles are separating the two of you.

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2018 – What to buy for the man in your life

This year I thought I’d bring you something a little different for Valentine’s Day! My Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2018 is going to focus on the man in your life, rather than being a list of items that women would love to receive. My husband is a hard worker and while our Valentine’s Day this year isn’t going to be too great, as my Mum is having open heart surgery that day, I’ve got him a lovely array of items to gift to him and make him feel loved and appreciated. Here is my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2018 – What to buy for the man in your life!

Christmas food and drink guide 2017

I don’t know about you but one of the things that I really enjoy at Christmas time is the food and drink. This year I’ve tried out a few goodies that I have never heard of, or tried before. I want to share a few of the lovely items in this Christmas food and drink guide. Hope you enjoy having a look!

Christmas food and drink guide - Crabtree and Evelyn

This lovely mini shortbread biscuits musical tin from Crabtree & Evelyn is available for £15. This is not only a delicious tasty Christmas addition BUT you could use it as a gift instead. The tin is a musical one and is the perfect festive biscuit tin that is hand wound. The only thing I would say is if you were giving this as a gift it DOES make a few twangs in the box. Very cute! 

Christmas food and drink guide - Cartwright & Butler The Pocklington Large Metal Tin Hamper

If you’re looking for a healthier snack at Christmas time then check out Wellaby’s Simple Bakes. Coming in flavours of spicy chilli, sea salt & pepper and smoky BBQ these have an RRP of £1.79. They are gluten, dairy, egg and nut free, and contain 70% less fat than regular potato crisps. They are available from Waitrose and Ocado too – ideal for your Christmas shop for delicious goodies!

Christmas food and drink guide - James White Drinks

Well what can I say about these juices? These are ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! We received a few boxes of these lovely fruit juices and we took them away on holiday with us. Sitting in the hot tub, sitting Cox apple juice is a little different to what we will do with the remaining juices at Christmas time I know! These juices are beautiful alone or would make the great basis for a cocktail or two at Christmas time! Also, if you’re looking for something as an alternative to wine then the Bramley apple juice is going to go lovely in a wine glass! RRP £2.66 per 75cl bottle. You can buy them from the James White website.

Christmas food and drink guide - Great Uncle Cornelius Refresher Range

This is another great range of non-alcoholic drinks. The refresher range from Great Uncle Cornelius is absolutely delicious. The lemon refresher was my absolute favourite for sure! The ginger refresher is delicious, served hot or cold, and is perfect for the cold Christmas nights ahead. The RRP of these drinks is £2.50 per 75cl bottle. You can buy them from the James White website.

This is just a selection of the delicious food & drink that we are looking forward to enjoying over the Christmas period. I hope you’ve enjoyed finding out about some brands that I hadn’t heard from before!

I received the items featured in this Christmas food and drink guide, or similar items from the same brands, for free, in exchange for inclusion.
