Christmas Eve is a magical poignant moment in any child’s life, even at the age of 28 I can still remember being filled with excitement whenever I made freshly baked mince pies with my mum in preparation for Santa’s arrival and how I always insisted on a carrot for Rudolph and some fresh cold milk.

Now of course, I have the pleasure of witnessing the excitement from my nephew’s point of view. It is so wonderful seeing how a child’s imagination can truly bring the Christmas spirit and the magic that comes with it alive. Which is why, when I stumbled across these beautiful boxes from TreatBox, I knew they would be perfect for making 2017 an extra special occasion.

Each box comes with everything you could possibly need for the night before Christmas, from a delicious chocolate lollipop and coins for the recipient to reindeer food and a special bottle to put Santa’s milk in. The box also includes a reusable straw, ingredients to make a hot chocolate drink with marshmallows, a personalised print for your child and a hanger to go on your door that reads ‘Santa please stop here’. This beautiful gift comes in a cardboard festive house which is finished off with ribbon and a tag. Of course, for that extra special touch, each gift Includes a sprinkle of festive confetti.

This gift is guaranteed to put a smile on their face as well as get them involved in the Christmas preparations before bedtime. Imagine the look on their faces in the morning, when they see that Santa has been to deliver their gifts.

TreatBox also offers personalised gifts that can be added to your own unique design for your loved ones. If however you are rushed off your feet, then TreatBox can help take the stress out of finding that perfect gift for your Sister, Aunt, Mum or whoever you wish to treat via their pre-made boxes.

If you want to find out more, then all you have to do is check out the TreatBox website here.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Love Emma

If you are wondering why there wasn’t a post last night, I was invited by the lovely Katie Kirk and Lush to a bloggers event in Crawley, as part of the launch of this year’s naked Christmas range.

More of that in a separate post later, but today behind door number 3 are these delightful Christmas decorations by Wild Home Online. If you are searching for a unique Christmas tree topper then these are perfect. I absolutely love their bright neon colours and the fact that they are made by local artisans, in Kenya out, from banana leaves and sisal.

If you are looking for a unique gift on a tight budget, then at £3.95 these are a great idea as you can also stand them together to create a stunning display. There are four designs to choose from including praying, harpist, trumpeter and star.

In addition to these beautiful charismatic angels, Wild Home Online also sell vibrant jewellery, bags, baskets, beaded sandals, homeward pieces and accessories – meaning that there is a gift for every occasion and recipient.

To see the full range make sure you pop over to their website.

You can also follow them over on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

 

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend enjoying the firework displays with your family or friends.

Good evening, guys and welcome back to day 2 of the advent calendar reveal. Behind today’s door I have the XO Balm which is brilliant for keeping your hands moisturised, whilst also offering protection against the harsh elements that come with Winter.

If you are looking for a gift for a beauty lover, then this is absolutely perfect as XO Balm contains four natural ingredients: coconut oil, beeswax, olive oil and chia seed oil. This multipurpose formula can offer hydration and nourishment for your skin or hair, making it a must have beauty essential for those Christmas office parties.

Also, thanks to its neutral branding and packaging this could be a great stocking filler for that special man in your life and the synthetic free formula means it is perfect for sensitive skin like mine. One of the things I particularly love about XO Balm is that it was founded with a passion for solutions, whilst also offering a sustainable alternative for our beauty needs.

At £12.50 XO Balm also ensures that local UK Businesses are supported as all materials are sourced from local suppliers, sustainable packaging is used to help reduce their environmental impact and they support a local charity ‘Give Bees a Chance’ to help keep bee populations healthy.

This little tin is so much more than what meets the eye and if you give XO Balm to a loved one this Christmas, you can guarantee that it will come sealed with love.

 

Reasons why I love XO Balm

 

  • Natural Ingredients.
  • Non-greasy formula.
  • Sustainable packaging.
  • Against animal testing.
  • Suitable for sensitive skin.
  • The tin can be washed out and reused for storage.

With only 54 days until Christmas, it is time to find that special gift for our loved ones. I have decided that after 28 years of gifting, I seriously need to up my game and with our wedding less than 300 days away, it also needs to be budget friendly.

So, I have made it my own personal mission to search high and low for the ultimate gift, to help take the stress out of the festive season. Behind door number 1, is a delicious treat from Bakerdays who offer personalised cakes that are literally a package of joy and at 5″ are perfect for surprising the unsuspecting receiver, as they can fit through your letterbox.

They taste incredible and I highly recommend their fruit flavour, which is a big deal for someone who usually hates fruit cake. My cake was so moist and a delight to try, but I will confess I loved my design so much that I did feel a little bit sad about demolishing it. If you want to send a foodie a unique gift, then this is absolutely perfect as it also comes with candles, balloons or even your very own Christmas cracker. This would be perfect for your boyfriend, girlfriend, grandparent or friend who lives far away, as it lets them know that you are thinking of them and can be tailored to the individual.

Whether, you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary, Bakerdays can cater for every occasion and even provide a little tin to ensure that your moreish surprise arrives intact, not bad for £14.99.

Do you fancy winning your very own Bakerdays cake? Well the lovely people over at Bakerdays are giving you the chance to do exactly that! All you have to do is enter here

The competition is open from 1st November 2017 until 30th November. UK entrants only.

 

Have a dairy, wheat or gluten intolerance? Don’t worry Bakerdays has you covered.

Good Luck
