Christmas Gift Guide - For The Organised Family

Item gifted for review purposes.

The next gift in my Christmas gift guide is for the organised family or the the family that needs to get organised!!!

Things like calendars and diaries are always really useful gifts and they can go from plain to very fancy. For the best character themed and licensed I always look in the direction of Danilo. I was lucky enough to get a Disney calendar in my BlogOn goody bag and I love it!

They have a huge range available, with diaries and calendars for Disney and Marvel fans, gamers, movie lovers and more! We got a peak at the Peppa Pig calendar for kids, the Mary Poppins diary, the Rick and Morty cube and the amazing Harry Potter set!

Christmas Star Bites

Well, it's been a while since I've done a bake and as the festive feeling is spreading over my blog lets create some festive bakes too!

As always I've done this as cheap as possible and for a couple of pounds the results are yummy!

Christmas Gift Guide - Family Board Game (7+)

Item gifted for review purposes.

Welcome back to my Christmas Gift Guide.

The latest gift idea is the kind of gift I got regularly as a child but we don't seem to give all that often these days. As people try and breakaway from tech and have family time though, board games are making a comeback!

Googly Eyes is for those aged 7+ and is for 4 or more players, making it a great game for family time.

Charity Spotlight - World Cord Blood Day

Collaborative Post

On the run up to Christmas people often begin to think about good and charitable causes and November is a month full of awareness days and weeks. With this in mind I've decided to pick one close to my heart and bring back my old Charity Spotlight feature. 

Writing about World Cord Blood Day takes me back five years! Back to when I was expecting out little boy! Wow, I can't believe it was that long ago?!
