Christmas is the time for indulgence, both in food and decor. A self-confessed home bird who loves Crimbo cosiness, this week’s festive favourites are a combination of the two. My Mummy Mode HQ party season picks so far are delicious Lindt Christmas chocolate and gorgeous gold LED lights from UK Christmas World- the perfect December decadence duo.
Mr T turns three next Thursday, as he’s been excitedly telling everyone within earshot. The happiest time of the year, I love birthdays and always seek out extra special treats for little ones in particular. I recently came across My 1st Years, an online store which sells personalised baby gifts. With an emphasis on understanding how precious those early memories are, this is a site that pays full attention to the finer details of gifting.
What do you get the man who has everything for Christmas? In my experience, usually even more socks, an ever popular festive fall back gift. I’ve come across a new collaboration which adds an exciting twist to this basic buy, a sock set that could be right up your street as you play Santa this year.
For crafty kids you have trouble keeping occupied, I’ve found the answer in the form of Mattel’s brand new creative figure concept AmiGami. Asked to review AmiGami ahead of their launch into stores in January 2015, this project was right up L’s street as she is constantly dreaming up new arty ideas.
Hibernation, Christmas candles and fake fur are top of my to-do list between now and next spring, so I was more than happy to oblige when asked to get cosy with Morlands Sheepskin.
Santa letters stuffed up the chimney, my favourite time of year is here again- Christmas shopping for the kids. Top of L’s wishlist and straight out of Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse, was the Barbie Malibu House, an amazing two storey explosion of pink, kitsch and cool. Complete with a fair few Barbie mod cons (fish-tank staircase anyone?), we were beyond excited when those lovely people at Mattel asked us to review said Barbie Malibu House.
