Valentines Day Gift Ideas

I love Valentines day and whilst I don't feel the need to run out and buy lots of gifts or receive any I do like the idea of celebrating 'being in love'  

Daddy and I have been together for 16 years and I know we still love each other the way we did when we first started dating, if not more. When we were younger Valentines Day seemed more important. I'm not sure why but we really used to make a big effort. Nice gifts, flowers, chocolates and even a trip to Dublin. Now we don't need all that, maybe because we are parents we would be just as happy with a hour or two to ourselves.

For those who would like to spoil their loved ones this Valentines Day I have a few ideas for you.

Christmas Gift Guide

Buying presents at Christmas time can be quite difficult and there is nothing worse than rushing round crowded shops looking for ideas of what to buy. Whether you are buying for him, for her, for family, fiends or secret santa it can be a nightmare. I tend to browse the internet for gift ideas and I have added a few ideas below for you to enjoy. Hopefully you might spot something you like or would like to receive which could make your Christmas less stressful.
 
World Class offer a wide selection of fragrances for both him and her. The Colour Me range are a perfect choice and the Purple is my favourite. An elegant rich modern fruity chypre fragrance. The fresh top notes of bergamot and watermelon are boosted by a subtle floral accord of pretty jasmin, rose and violet notes. The dry down is a tenacious blend of oakmoss, amber and precious patchouli woods.
 
Personalised Bottles have a large selection of gifts that would be suitable for all. I particular like the Scottish hampers. Using only the finest Scottish foods and gifts, the traditional Scottish gift hampers are a luxury gift for that someone special. As they are based in Scotland, they have access to over 60 Scottish food producers, with a total combined list of over 600 products.


 
I love the smell of gingerbread. Baylis & Harding's latest collection captures the essence of this fabulous aroma and presents it in a range of festive and fun pampering products.

Caramel Fudge, Creamy Marshmallow Frosting, Hot Chocolate and Sweet Gingerbread scents will create a deliciously festive feeling in your bathroom.

My favourite is the Baylis & Harding Beauticology Cream Marshmallow Frosting 50ml Hand & Body Lotion.
Christmas wouldn't be the same if you didn't have some delicious sweets to snack on while watching a Christmas movie. Hope and Greenwood have some amazing sweeties and this is my favourite. Splendid Stocking Fillers is packed with Sugar Mice, Sweet Bag Ginger & Chili, Sweet Bag Peppermint, Sweet Bag Cranberry & Orange and Curly Candy Canes.

Christmas Gift Guide - Toys

There is just so much choice out there at the moment for little ones for Christmas. I have been browsing over the last few months and character toys seem to be the most popular at the moment, well they are in our house. Little J loves Cbeebies, Peppa Pig, In The Night Garden and Golden Bear Toys have a lovely selection at the moment and I have included 6 of our favourites below.

1. Henry Hugglemonster Henry Roarback - RRP £39.99

Have you ever wondered if your little one can ROAR as good as Henry? Well now you can put them to the test as Henry will copy their every word and sound. Press Henry's right hand which will start the ROAR back feature. Once Henry's nose starts to flash you will know that the recording mode has started. Let your little one chat away or get them to ROAR. When its time to play back Henry will repeat word for word in his own voice. Your little ones will be amazed. There is also lots of phrases from the tv show which can be heard by pressing Henry's left hand. Suitable from 10mnths+

2. Cbeebies Sweet Dreams with Squidge - RRP £19.99

Is your little one getting tired? Squidge is so its time to go to sleep. Give Squidge a big squeeze and listen to him softly play the tune from Cbeebies Bedtime hour. Use him as a pillow or even a nightlight as he glows in different colours soothing your little one to sleep. Give him another squeeze to make him stop playing. He is so soft and cuddly and would make a perfect gift.
This is the cutest plush I think I've ever seen and when we got the chance to review one a few months ago I wasn't sure whether little J would be interested or not but he loves his Squidge and it has been a firm night time favourite. 

3. Peppa Pig Wooden Play Pack - RRP £23.95

There is something special about wooden toys. This gift set would be perfect for any little Peppa fan. Firstly the wooden dominoes set has all your favourite characters from Peppa Pig on them. the first player to match the pictures and lay down all their dominoes is the winner. Hours of fun and perfect for learning how to take turns. The Pepper Pig wooden vehicles are also lots of fun. Just pull them back and watch them go. Chunky and colourful and perfect for little hands to hold. The pullback range features train, car, boat and rocket.

4. Ninky Nonk Musical Activity Train - RRP £49.99

If you have a little fan of In the night garden then I am sure this will already be top of their list to Father Christmas. The Ninky Nonk Musical Activity Train is a whopping 78cm long and comes with 5 detachable carriages. Each carriage is a toy within itself but when placed together they form the Ninky Nonk. The Engine carriage, Spinning Shape Sorter carriage, Stacking blocks carriage, pop up Igglepiggle carriage and Peek-a-boo carriage will keep little ones entertained for hours. With music, sounds and glowing lights this is perfect for any fan. If you want to read our Ninky Nonk just click HERE

5. Something Special - Mr Tumble Textured Spotty Bag - RRP £14.99

Mr Tumble fans will love pretending to be him by owning their own spotty bag. Bright colours, the Something Special logo and 4 textured spots to help stimulate senses. Green satin, orange velvet, red plush and blue corduroy. Also comes with 5 finder cards with Makaton signs to help recognition of popular household items.

Next I have included a few items that we really like and that will be going on our list to Father Christmas.

1. VTech Baby Toot Toot Drivers Airport - RRP £24.99

Little J has a set of Toot toot cars at his Grandma's house and he absolutely loves them. We googled the range and you can buy some many different playsets. This is my favourite, it comes with a little plane. All Toot Toot playsets can connect to one another so its just endless fun. You can buy this in major toy shops and also online at Amazon.

2. Thomas & Friends Battery Operated Train and 22 piece track - RRP £119.99

Little J has a few ride on's but I love the idea of this because it's battery operated and moves along the track. Little J doesn't have very strong legs yet so he does sometimes struggle to move across the floor on his ride on but he loves sitting on this. I think this will be great because at least he will be going somewhere.

3. TOMY Counting with Luke The Loop - RRP £14.99

Luke loves counting and looping. Your little one will love flying Luke around in his stunt aeroplane. He has an easy to hold handle perfect for little ones. His engine will roar as you fly him through the air and everytime you make him loop he will count - all the way up to 10.

4. Fisher Price Laugh and Learn stride to ride puppy - RRP £59.99

Whether your little one is sitting on puppy, walking with him or riding with him there is lots of fun to be had. He will play more than 50 songs, tunes and phrases. He will teach your little one about letters, numbers, colours, shapes, greetings, manners and more. Get your little ones to sort through the coloured blocks and feed them to him. 

5. Pink Lining Knights and Dragons Wheelie Case - RRP £30.00

I absolutely love this. We go on many weekend breaks and holidays throughout the year so this would be perfect for little J. Plus he absolutely loves putting stuff in and out of bags so he would have fun with at home too. Available from Pink Lining

Our Summer Essentials Wish List

I have read so many Summer wish lists recently and it made me think I need to sort through our winter stuff and get ready for Summer.
 
 
Cosatto Supa Stroller Pixelate
 
Firstly I think little J needs a new pushchair. I love his Cosatto Cuddle Monster but its time to get a new one. The stand has broke off and its worn a little now so to get ready for summer we had a browse at some new prams.
 
After browsing Daddy and I agreed to stick with Cosatto and we love this one.
 
 
Palm Springs 13KW Steel Gas Patio Heater  
 
I really don't like the garden. I hate anything that crawls, flies and  buzzes so the garden is a big no no BUT I am trying because big J and little J love it so much. We have just bought a new table and chairs but it can get quite cool outside so I am putting this lovely outdoor heater on my wishlist.
 
 
We R Sports Trampoline with Safety Enclosure Net Ladder and Rain Cover  
 
Big J has had his trampoline for sooooooo long. It has definitely seen better days so its time for an upgrade. Trampolines are great fun and good for topping up on exercise. It is important to have an enclosure though for safety.
 

Little J loves going on the swing so we found this great swing set that grows with your little one. suitable up to the age of 10.

Children's Wooden 1.2m Square Sandpit  

I would love this for the garden. Big and little J both love the sand so this would give us plenty of fun in the garden.
 Trunki Ride-on Suitcase - Limited Edition Gruffalo  
 
I have always wanted a Trunki but I'm obviously too old. haha.  They are so much fun and ideal for little ones. I would love one of these for little J to carry his teddies and toys around when we go on holiday.
 
and lastly
 
Bestway Deluxe Family Pool
 
We always have so much fun in  the paddling pool but unfortunately ours has decided to get a puncture and its a little bit small now anyway.
 
 Have you prepared for Summer? What's on your wishlist?

Mummy's Birthday Wish List

My birthday is just around the corner and I am probably one of the hardest people to buy for. I like lots of things but I really don't like people spending money on me. I don't know why but its just the way I am. So whenever anyone (including Daddy) asks me what I want my response is always 'nothing, I'm okay'.
