The run up to Christmas is a wonderfully exciting time for children and parents alike. It’s filled with festive crafts and songs, food and films. Seeing the look of joy on our little ones faces on Christmas morning as the rip open the paper on the coveted toys that managed to not only make it onto their Christmas list but
us parents Santa was lucky enough to get a hold of (even if it did involve a scrimmage for the last one on the shelf!)
Luckily for our children they don’t see the stresses that often accompany the fun of Christmas. They don’t see the money worries, the traipsing through town in the rain looking like a windswept, drowned rat. The driving around to 15 different Argos stores across 3 counties because you heard on the school gates grapevine that they have a few of the latest doll/game/remote control thingamajig only to see the last one being carried out just as you arrive. The stress that the most important ‘big gift’ that was ordered mid November still hasn’t arrived 3 days before the big day!
Knowing I’m not the only one who doesn’t even think about themselves from at least October as we are in ‘Mission: Christmas’ mode, I thought I would have a little giveaway to give one of you lovely people the chance to pamper yourself a little. With the help from a few great companies I have put together a little pampering hamper worth over £50! (Apologies, the photo’s really don’t do the products justice!)
