It’s just a few days left until Christmas and I just wanted to share some ideas on what you could fill the stockings with. This is things I think you can find almost at any bigger Supermarket, at least I hope you can.
First for the Children:
Crayons and colouring books
Small car toy
For the teenagers:
Itunes gift cards
Other gift cards
Mystic 8 ball
That’s all I got for stocking fillers. I hope you liked it. Have an fantastic Sunday.
I always think its hard to get presents for children. Because every child want different things and it’s hard to know what is the right thing to get. I don’t have children and as an aunt I am boring. because I love buying my nephews and nieces books. But here are some ideas that I think are appropriately whenever, and it’s not just books. And this is not an ad.
My first tip is something that’s called Moonlite. It’s a storybook projector for your mobile phone. It turns storytime into something magical. And here you can buy different packs, with different stories. I know there are a Disney pack, a Fairytale pack and a Very Hungry Caterpiller pack that you can buy. And you can also buy stories separately.
A present that I always appreciated when I was a child, no who am I kidding, I love to get it now too, is Disney Movies. As a Disney fan, I feel like this is a great gift. Why not give a Disney movie as a gift an make it into movie night with the kids. I will not link a store here, because I think you can buy a Disney move almost anywhere.
The fourth tip for a gift for children is Lego and Duplo depending on the age of the child. There are lots of different sets you can buy and I think any toystore have them in stock. I found both Lego and Duplo on Amazon. And in Sweden, you can buy Lego and Duplo on BR. I love these two toys because it can help children with keeping their imagination alive. They can build a castle or a ship. Or whatever they can think of.
And my fifth tip is the Coloring Without Borders Coloring Book. It’s sold on Families Belong Together and all the proceeds go to Families Belong Together, that is a movement that all Families belong together. You can read more about it here. The Coloring Book is really cool because the text is in both English and Spanish. And the child decides what she/he should paint.
And my last tip is the two books Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 tales of extraordinary women and Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls Volume 2 by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo. Volume 1 in English here and Swedish here. And volume 2 in English here and Swedish here. Or a boxed set in English here. In the clip down below you will see why I think we need to give this books to our daughters, nieces and all children.
I hope you liked my gift ideas for children. And that it maybe gave you some ideas. This is not an ad. Have an amazing day.
Christmas is soon upon us and therefore are today’s Christmas song It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas. This is a Christmas Classic that I love. This song is a must on my Christmas Playlists. Down below are my two favourite versions.
I hope you have a fantastic Saturday! Now I am going to wrap some presents.
Right now I am waiting for my husband to get home. It’s his last day at work before we move to Edinburgh, and I just want him home with me. He usually works the days between Christmas and New Year, but not this year. He has taken the time off to spend it with me and the dogs. And to help keep me calm and so we can pack what we need for our move.
So I think today’s song is appropriate. It’s Christmas (Baby, please come home). Because I want him to come home to me.
These are my two favourite versions so far of the song. I will now listen to these and hope my husband gets home soon.
Christmas is just a few days away and I haven’t packed a single present yet. I will definitely begin with that today. And a few presents haven’t arrived yet, but hopefully, they will come today or tomorrow. And now to the song of the day. This is one of my favourite Christmas songs because it’s in one of my favourite Christmas Movies, Home Alone. The song is Carol of the Bell.
I think this version that was in the movie is the best. I have to watch Home Alone soon. Maybe even today. I hope you have a fantastic Thursday.
Why not buy an infinity scarf with the words of the person’s favourite book on it. You can buy: Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Alice in Wonderland and Sence & Sensibility at Uncommon Goods. On the picture are the scarf with Pride and Prejudice.
Why not buy the book lover a Snug Rug Blanket with Sleeves so he/she can be snuggling under a blanket but still be able to read. You can buy it in CoolStuff Sweden and CoolStuff UK. It’s also available in different colours.
Another gift idea is mugs with book-related texts. Here are a few of my favourites:
