Gift Guide For Baby Christmas 2016

gift guide for baby Christmas 2016

Just like last year, my gift guides have some practicality to them. Newbies and young babies don’t actually play with toys so there is no point spending hundreds on toys for ‘ah they’ll grow into them’ because really they don’t, by the time they ‘grow’ into them a birthday has passed or a Christening and the junk piles up.

Team Hopes Launch Online Christmas Shoebox Appeal #onlineChristmasShoebox

A couple of weeks back I mentioned that the big kid and I had been putting our Christmas Shoebox together for Team Hope, a box full of treats including pants, socks and hygienic products like soap, a toothbrush, and toothpaste and of course a doll, a ball, and some munchies. We even put in a superhero cape in. It’s our fourth year to put a box together, I’m a huge believer in paying it forward, if I can help someone out in need in any way I will try my very best to do so. (more…)

Thank you so much for sharing your story! (more…)
