I've started to browse online and in my local shops for ideas for both Chunk and my nephew Curly and here are my favourites so far:
|My Best Xmas Picks So Far|
I love personalised gifts as they seem that bit more special, and I still have some keepsakes from my childhood that featured my name.
LittleBWokingham is a great online shop that creates handmade, personalised gifts for quite low prices. I chose an artwork plaque as Chunk does a lot of drawing and painting at nursery and I would love to have a different one displayed each week to show him how proud I am.
The plaque is hand painted the colours of your choice and it has two small pegs attached to it which hangs the artwork and is just £4.
Sloth Slept On
I reviewed this hardback with Chunk recently and it was a hit and it's currently one of his favourite bedtime stories.
This rabbit is Chunk's latest cuddle companion and bedtime buddy, who he has originally named 'Bunny'. It comes in two colours and I think it's a bargain at £4.99 because it's a really well-made toy. It's beautifully soft and the perfect size for Chunk to carry around and for me to find when he's dropped it.
Thomas The Tank Engine DVD
I loved Thomas as a child so I was happy that he's still going strong now I have a child of my own, even if they did change the theme tune (which I admit has now grown on me).
Thomas & Friends: Tale of the Brave is about Thomas and his friends trying to find out what or who made some very unusual footprints during a scary thunderstorm. During their search they encounter dangerous situations which takes courage to face, as well as new friends to help them with their quest. Typical Thomas fun with those lovely, subtle messages that I hope slip into Chunk's unconscious!
