What To Do With Unwanted Christmas Gifts

Christmas has gone and we've rolled into a brand new year. Maybe you're back at work, maybe you've taken your tree down or maybe your still plodding along in a festive bubble! Either way it's time to start getting things back to normal.

Put away decorations, eat the last of the chocolates and tidy away presents, but what if you've got some unwanted gifts? Items that aren't to your taste, are the wrong size or something you have already?

Simple Ways To Upgrade Your Home

Collaborative Post

When it comes to renovating your home you may think it's something that needs to be delayed and saved up for but the good news is that not all renovations have to cost a lot of money.

Of course there are bigger things that definitely will cost more but if you're simply looking to give your home a bit of a refreshing and want to change things up a bit it doesn't have to cost a lot. As long as you budget and approach it in the right way there are simple things you can do that will make a massive impact.

Last Minute Christmas Checklist!!!

Christmas is now just days away and I've already posted about keeping calm and this is to help that! 

A little list to make sure you've ticked off the important parts, timers and reminders to set and what we need to forget! So here we go........


Is everything wrapped and ready? If not do you have the time to get them done? Consider getting gift bags as alternatives or place straight into sacks for the kids. Hubs and I do this for Joseph and each other it saves so much time on wrapping but also means less mess on Christmas morning!

Portable North Pole

App gifted for review purposes.

As parents we tend to use Santa Claus as a behavioural tool on the run up to Christmas. Santa cam has been in effect and live for longer than I'd like to admit in our house!

Joseph has been working hard on his behaviour and has already received a Nice List certificate from Lapland Mailroom, but as the excitement grows there's been some silliness, so we've want to give him a little nudge in the right direction, whilst keeping the Christmas magic alive!

This is where the Portable North Pole comes in!
