Have you spotted the mince pies in the shops already??
In the run up to Christmas last year I posted a few gift ideas for babies and toddlers, and more recently I've posted a few homemade gifts. I've also shared some ideas for gifts for the daddies here in my Father's Day post. I'm already starting to think about Christmas gifts for friends and family this year and thought I'd share with you a few of the ideas I've been having so far...
I mentioned the Cox & Cox popcorn bowls in a previous post, but this year Cox & Cox also have a retro Stove Top Popcorn Maker for £32. What a great gift that would be for a family with slightly older kids... popcorn maker and a couple of popcorn bowls for movie night!
And if you haven't already seen it, be sure to look out for Disney's Prep & Landing on the TV over the festive period. It's absolutely brilliant and my eldest loves it! So much so that I bought it on DVD last year.
I'm a stationery geek and am a sucker for cute notepads, pens, pencils, ribbons etc!!
How cool are these propelling pencils from Present & Correct...
On etsy you can also get some amazing personalised stationery sets which make ideal gifts. How cute are these cupcake notecards by lfhstudio....
Even though at the moment I don't cook often from scratch, I'm keen to encourage my little ones into the kitchen. I love these cooking utensils by Head Chef. They're functional and fun at the same time!

And how cute are these mini jelly moulds! Perfect size for toddlers and little kids! I managed to find these reduced in an online sale and gave them as party favours for my daughter's first birthday for the older kids.
Back to Cox & Cox again, as I'm also loving these Letterpress Cookie Cutters. These would be ideal as a gift, or if you are making festive biscuits for the neighbours you could personalised them.
Right, that's all for now - but be sure to come back as I'll post some more ideas in the lead up to Christmas... Can you believe it's September already?!?!!
