Father’s Day Gift Guide 2019 (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted the featured items in exchange for coverage. Father’s Day is coming! In the UK Father’s Day 2019 falls on Sunday 16th June. As this is just a few weeks after Thomas’ Birthday AND our Wedding Anniversary I’m planning ahead – as I don’t want to be caught out without a gift. My lovely husband always makes sure that Mother’s Day is a lovely event in our home. He will spend the day treating me well, completing all the household jobs and dealing with most of the parenting. I really look forward to this day, as I feel so privileged to be a mother to Daisy, and I can’t believe Daisy is 3! Anyway, today I’ve got a selection of lovely items that I have hand-picked as I think each and every one of them is a fantastic gift idea for Father’s Day!

These are my gift ideas for a 3-year-old.

My Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for 2019 (AD – Gifted)

The products featured in this guide were gifted by brands in exchange for this feature. Valentine’s Day isn’t something that we go mad on, to be honest. We no longer go out for lavish meals, and we rarely even cook a fancy meal to mark the day! However, as busy parents, working on buying a house and running our family, we like having a special day to make an effort. This year I’ve decided that Valentine’s Day is going to be about more than just treating Thomas, my lovely husband, and will also be about treating myself! I’m a hard worker and I deserve some nice treats too! Here is my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for 2019.

2018 Christmas Gift Guide for Pets (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted all of the featured items in exchange for coverage. Our pets were really our babies before our daughter was born. We have cats, fish and a turtle. We also have a family dog, that we spend time with. I love to treat our pets, as I do the rest of our family, at Christmas time. Today I want to share with you a selection of the items that we will be gifting to our family pets, in my 2018 Christmas Gift Guide for Pets.

Our cat Izzy really is the Queen of all of our pets. Izzy is the first to be fed, even over her cat sister Jasmine. Izzy was diagnosed at birth with a heart defect, and we expected her to die a long time ago, but she keeps ticking over and living the lazy life. This shark pet bed, from Cool Stuff, is perfect for her. It has a large opening, giving her lots of room to climb inside, and it’s super soft inside. The bed within is removable, which is perfect for giving it a weekly refresh. You can even press this down flat if need be, to store it away. It says that this is hand wash only, but I’ve already washed it on a hand wash cycle in my machine and it has held up great! I love how easy this is to wipe over too.
