Christmas gifts for children (AD)

AD. We were gifted the items within this gift guide in exchange for coverage. Our daughter Daisy is 3, soon to be 4, and as such I’m quite the expert on toys for her age range now. Being an Auntie to 15 nieces and nephews means that over the years I’ve learned a thing or two about toys at Christmas time. I’ve gathered together some of my favourite Christmas gifts for children from this year for this gift guide. Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration for the little ones in your family.

Christmas gifts for a new baby (AD)

AD. We were gifted the items within this gift guide in exchange for coverage. Babies come in waves in our family. We can go several years without there being a new arrival, despite having 7 surviving siblings between us, and now something different but exciting is happening! My NIECE is having a baby. Wow – I feel old! I can remember sitting next to her, at 7 years old, bringing her home from the hospital when she was 2 days old. It was snowing outside and it is one of my clearest memories of my childhood. Anyway, fast forward 24 years (almost) and my niece is having a baby of her own! I’m SO excited and so this year I wanted to host a post filled with Christmas gifts for a new baby. It has been a few years since I had my own baby, as Daisy is 3, and these are some of the items I will be gifting my niece ready for her own baby to be born.

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.
