Ok with less than one month till Christmas, this festive season will be here before we know it. My kids may think that’s a life time away and three weeks is ‘WAY to long’, but for me it has seriously crept up a little too fast!
So this week to feel a little more organised we put up the tree and I made a gift list, that’s a good start right?! This year I have teamed up with online store Marks and Spencer who have crossed off the whole family’s gift list from the one place!! Couldn’t have been easier.
I took advantage of the Marks and Spencer 3 for 2 offer for some little stocking filler’s, like the fab, mini girls grooming kit, socks for the boys and a kids backpack (perfect for a 4 year old who starts kinder next year)
Sometimes my hubby can be a little hard to buy for so with a good quality selection of leather bags and back packs I ended up purchasing a leather briefcase So nice to be able to get everything from an online store, and with express post $7.50 and 4 days delivery, and a really easy returns policy if something doesn’t fit. This is much easier than facing the craziness of shopping centres this time of year.
With hubby being English, we always try and incorporate a touch of British feel to the festive season. These English Christmas tree decorations are perfect as our English theme. I picked out a little cute felt bear decoration for its obvious kid friendly appeal, which is important in a house with a very adventurous toddler running around.
Ok, so once I had covered gifts for all the boys and the decorations, I couldn’t help but shop for myself, a little self-gifting this time of year (and all year round 😉 ) is always a good idea. Couldn’t go past this Black Jumpsuit, it’s perfect to wear for a Christmas party, and is the ideal Christmas day look. It’s so easy to add some gold jewellery and wear causally with these Cross back Slides that are only $35. Or add a pop of colour with a bright heel to dress it up, a nice alternative to the LBD.
Now we are all ready for the super early morning wake up’s and eating way to much ham and gingerbread house.
The boys and I are dressed in all Marks and Spencer. Shop these pieces and the best staples at Marks and Spencer
