Lots of little stocking filler present ideas. I always like to include some essential items ( that means no extra expenditure) bubble bath, shampoo even toothbrushes! The bigger the filler the better!

Happy Sunday studio table bags

I have added these beautiful party table bags from the wonderful Happy Sunday Studio this year ( choosing my favourite liberty prints of course)! we all put some names into a hat and have picked out one person each to fill a bag for . I am hoping it gives the kids some practise in how to really put some thought into what might make someone smile!

We are going to hand write a joke or riddle each and me and the kids are going to attempt to make some cute felt party hats and crowns to be reused at the table each year. A few ideas for little presents might be stickers and tattoos ( Meri Meri do great ones), a little car (Candylab are my favourites), make up (love Nailmatic) , Maileg mice, stationary (check out Penco for the adults), a pretty face mask, playing cards/ a card game ( we love Djeco ones), jewellery and hair accessories ( so pretty at Rockahula), animal figures ( Schleich, Ostheimer, Holztiger) , a vintage toy from ebay (care bear?), a teether ( Oli and carol), felt fairy ( Conscious craft), mini doll (Alice In Scandiland Shop), little doll accessories ( Scandiborn) , Play food, tools etc. Plus maybe some crayons and some colouring sheets ( have a look at Squidgearoo) to keep the kids busy while the food is cooking!

Baby Dreams : Little Beacon and Oli and Carol

In the middle of lockdown and with all kids at home the only way I can keep baby B asleep is by having him permanently attached to me! So on the very rare occasion I got to put him down with his new cosy linen Little Beacon moon blanket I couldn’t resist but take some photos of him!

Beautiful new teethers from Oli and Carol and hat from Fauna Kids
