Welcome back to my Christmas gift guide!!

This gift is one for the babies and toddlers in your lives!

Little ones can usually be easy to buy for and toys will probably be your go to but what if you want something a little different? Maybe the parents plead with you for no more toys and something educational as an alternative.

This is where Babel Babies comes inA great alternative to a toy, their Sing Languages Together CD, brings multilingual music and stories together to learn, sing and play.

Lapland Mailroom

Item gifted for review purposes.

Christmas is a magical time for children and I love little touches that can add to the experience for our little boy.

Elf doors, magic keys and snowy footprints all make an appearance at our house. With our four year old, Joseph, a little older this year and understanding Christmas a lot more I also wanted to add a letter from Santa.

So, when I was contacted by Santa's elves over at Lapland Mailroom I was super excited! 

Heading over to their website to place my order, I was impressed by what I found.

Lapland Mailroom offers four different letters to choose from, with one of the options to mark a child's first Christmas. How cute!

The others each offer different wording and messages from Santa, meaning you can pick the one that best suits your child.

Personalisation means you can add your child's name and what they'll be asking Santa for, as well as how you'd like the letter signing off. Great if you call the big guy Father Christmas instead of Santa!

There are two packages available, with a letter and a nice list certificate for £8.95 and a package with an activity pack for £9.95. Both packages include international delivery and are posted out during the first week of December, bringing excitement for the start of the festive period.

Placing the order for ours was really easy and I love that Lapland Mailroom have different letters to choose from. I can't wait to see Joseph's little face when his letter from Santa arrives!!

Spreading the Christmas cheer the elves are giving my readers 10% with code xmaspromo18.

Keep your eyes peeled as you might just see the Lapland Mailroom again in this month's giveaway!!

Goodbye October

When I wrote Goodbye September I mentioned how busy it had been but looking back I feel like October was in the wings, chuckling away to itself thinking you've seen nothing yet!
