Getting Ready For Christmas

Now that we're in to November and Halloween has been and gone I'm officially in Christmas mode and I've been getting myself organised lately to make sure everything will be ready for the big day which by the way is only 50 days away!

So first things first the most important thing to get organised for Christmas is the tree and this year same as last year we're going for a real one from Pines and Needles, our tree last year was the most beautiful tree I've ever seen and the service from Pines and Needles was brilliant. I've put my order in and our tree will be arriving just in time for the beginning of December so that we can enjoy a full month of it.

As a special treat for my readers Pines and Needles have given me a code which if used online entitles you to free Holly, Mistletoe, Mini Tree and 10" Decorated Wreath, just enter BAGS15 at the checkout.


Yesterday I re-stocked my Christmas candle collection in Home Bargains, they had these three beauties available to buy for just 49p each, can you believe it? 


I also ordered a few bits from Matalan including this gorgeous door mat and this mason jar mug gift set perfect for making hot chocolates on chilly winter nights.


I always like to get the kids some Christmas pjs to pop in their Christmas Eve basket so I got Summer this super cute Patterned Trees PJ Set from Hatley which have loads of gorgeous nightwear and clothing for kids and adults. I must say I'm tempted to get the matching pjs for myself too because they're so pretty.


I've even done a bit of Christmas shopping and picked up a couple of gifts for my friends baby daughter, I thought the Peppa Pig Activity Toy was so cute and the perfect Christmas gift for a baby as it's super soft but it also plays music, oinks and has different textures making it a sensory toy too.

 The whole range of Peppa Pig baby toys is lovely and it's not just for girls as there is a George Pig too, all the toys are available to buy from Mothercare, Boots, Tesco and Amazon.

  4. I still have so much to do before I can start the 'nice prep' - need to clear the decks by the end of November then I'm free to 'deck the halls' in December :) On the plus side I had most of my presents bought by Halloween so ahead there at least! :)
