*Gifted Product

If you know me you’ll know that I love wooden products, I love something which has sentimental value, I love anything that is personalised of us as a family and I love beautiful bits for my home.

sustainable Christmas gift ideas from for first steps

Sustainable Christmas Gift Ideas From For First Steps

Christmas is just around the corner and if you are anything like me, you will be starting to wonder what to buy for all of the little people in your life. Not only do I have children of my own but I also have nieces and nephews, friends children and cousins to think of for birthdays as well as Christmas. But what do you get that will mean something, that will last and will be appreciated by the parents too?

Get Christmas All Wrapped Up With The RSPB

*Gifted Products

Yes, I said it. Christmas. I’m not usually one to say it quite so early but what with numerous birthdays beforehand (as well as one on the day itself!) I have decided that this year is the year I get organised and on the ball well in advance. As a busy Mum of 2 now, I can’t leave it all to the last minute anymore and I don’t want to be rushing around when we could be enjoying the run-up to the big day by visiting Grottos, going to Christmas Fayres or even to one of the many stunning winter wonderlands that are on in our area.

My holiday is coming up and we have decided that after experiencing a rainy Wales last year we need sun, so Crete here we come! I am so excited.
