Christmas Gift Guide For kids Under 8.

**AD - Gifted**

Have your kids started there Christmas lists yet? Or maybe there are like mine who end up making several lists sending me into a complete frenzy a few days before Christmas, trying to find the gifts they have added to their lists that they never even mentioned before!

When looking for gifts for my kids I of course try and include some of the items on their lists but I also look for toys I know they will be able to use throughout the year. Toys they might not of thought of but I know they will totally love. Some funny and silly, some educational and some a bit random (but these usually end up being the ones they love the most!). 



Here is a list of some of the fantastic gift ideas I have found this year that are perfect for kids under 8.

The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Mums - 2019

**AD - Gifted**

Christmas is next month, can you believe it!? It definitely feels like Christmas has snuck up on me this year. With the kids now back at school after half term I have decided its probably about time I made a start on my Christmas shopping. I even ordered our real Christmas tree over the weekend and took the kids to pick up some new decorations from The Range.


When it comes to buying Christmas gifts we all want to gift the perfect present but it can be hard to find that gift when there are so many things to choose from. Especially when it comes to mums, they are so special to us that finding a gift they will love and show them how much they mean to us can feel overwhelming and impossible.

Autumn may be well and truly here, bringing with it the cold, wet and windy weather. But if you are already missing the warm sun on your skin and days at the pool you could be in luck with some last minute breaks in the sun thanks to Voyage Prive.

I have to admit I have been tempted myself after a few chilly morning school runs and having to buy us all new woolly hats and gloves this weekend! The summer feels like it was so long ago and scrolling through all of the holidays available a few definitely caught my eye, one of those being breaks in Greece.

A Personalised Call to Father Christmas with Portable North Pole!

**AD - Review**

Christmas seems to have a whole new meaning once you become a parent doesn't it? There just seems to be that extra little bit of magic, the kids excitement for Father Christmas is almost infectious and it takes me right back to when I was a kid. I remember that excitement, the buzz about Christmas, wondering if Santa would come and what he would bring. And now I am a parent I get to experience it all again with my own children, its just magical.


Since having kids Christmas has fast become my most favourite time of year again and I love finding different ways to make it as special, magical and enchanting for the kids as I can. From visit's to Father Christmas, to baking Christmas goodies and going out to see all the Christmas lights. But this year I have found something I think my top it all, a personalised phone/video call to the big man himself, Father Christmas!

Summer is well and truly over and the beautiful autumnal colours are everywhere. Winter is well and truly on its way and with it, it seems to have brought the rain, wind and darker evenings too. Whilst Autumn is my favourite season (closely followed by winter, purely for Christmas!) it is all to easy to fall into a bit of a slump when the rain and wind scuppers your plans and the evenings are dark before you have even had dinner!


However there are plenty of ways to beat those winter blues and here are some of my favourite ways to stay happy, healthy and positive through the colder winter months.
