Okay Okay, we know it’s only October….and if you are as unorganised as Laura and I, you won’t have even started thinking about your Christmas shopping yet. After all there’s still half term to deal with, Halloween costumes to sort and bonfire night to enjoy. I would love to have everything sorted in plenty of time instead of frantically trying to do all of my Christmas shopping a week before the big day. Those dreaded words ‘SOLD OUT’ are nothing short of anxiety inducing! So just for this year, let’s start thinking about Christmas a bit earlier, let’s start planning those surprises now and maybe (just maybe) we can ease into the festive season feeling very organised, relaxed and even a bit smug!
And so, just like 2 very thoughtful (and stylish!) elves, we thought we’d give you a little helping hand! Laura and I have reviewed all of our wonderful products and came up with a cracking list of our Top 5 Picks for Christmas!
Baby Abode’s ‘ABC With Me’ Bunting £35
Get ready to sing the alphabet in the most stylish of ways on Christmas morning! These contemporary wooden letters on oh so chic black cord will look effortlessly cool when hung up ready for your little one to marvel at on Christmas morning. Our bunting is sold in a perfect little ‘do it yourself’ kit for you to create your own; so you could even let your little one help string up the letters and enjoy singing the alphabet as you go along. Our bunting comes beautifully packaged in our Baby Abode drawstring bags and will make a beautiful gift for any child. Stylish, cool, fun and educational! In our eyes it’s the perfect gift!
T-Lab Polepole Animals from £12 each
THE ideal stocking filler! Select your favourite animals from our collection of 14 different creatures and pop them in your little ones stocking for a very cool surprise. These handmade figures are carved from natural pure wood and are finished to the highest standard. They are quirky, friendly and beautifully made! Find the perfect home for them in your little ones abode by building a farm, a jungle or a desert and let your little ones imagination run wild on Christmas day. And guess what….if you order 3 or more animals we will package them up beautifully in one of our Baby Abode drawstring bags!
Fabelab’s Story Telling Blanket £49.95
Possibly one our favourite blankets ever! Not just a cosy blanket to keep your little one toasty on those chilly winter nights; it also encourages your children’s imagination by following the thread and unravelling their own story. This brilliant design allows parents and children to tell a new bedtime story every night. Bring in your T-Lab animals or your Lucky Boy Sunday characters to add another layer to the story and keep your little ones imagination alive with wonder! Made from certified organic cotton, this blanket is so soft and dreamy it’s even suitable for the most sensitive of skin. No one misses out on a bedtime story with this wonderful addition to your home.
Lucky Boy Sundays Secret Friend – Pale Nulle £89.95
Pale Nulle is a concerned little creature – he is mainly concerned about the weather, aren’t we all!! Give him a warm cosy home this Christmas and watch his concern melt away. Wrap him up in our story telling blanket and show him some love on these cold winter days. He will be equally as happy adorning a beautiful shelf or sat on a feature chair, as long as he doesn’t have to go outside! Pale Nulle is handmade with 100% baby alpaca and is super soft for your little ones snuggle up to on Christmas night. For extra bonus points team Pale Nulle with his cushion cousin – our Nulle pillow case (also £89.95).
Made of Sundays wall decals £12.95
Another nifty little stocking filler. Pop a set of decals in your little ones stocking and give their abode a little revamp for the festive season. These decals are soooo easy to apply and can create a feature wall in an instant! Even let your little one join in with the fun (if you dare!) and let them create a master piece within their own little abode. We have a variety of decals across our site from triangles, polka dots, crosses and lightning bolts – they are a steal at only £12.95 per set! You are sure to be a hit on Christmas morning with the promise of a little DIY decoration to spruce up their space.
So that’s the kids presents sorted, now we just need to sort their Christmas party outfits, plan our food shopping, sort out the Christmas tree, write out the Christmas cards and buy for everyone else! Maybe the lead up to Christmas won’t be that relaxing after all……
And to all a Goodnight
