Beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

by - 22:47

We have received two beautiful deliveries recently and it is now beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. With only 7 weeks to go, I am starting to get organised and plan decorating and presents. With me thinking about the decorations one of the items I am very keen on is lights.

I love to have soft lights on in the house, I think it makes the winter seem warmer and welcoming. Last year we were sent some lights from the LED hut and I am looking forward to getting them out again. The LED hut have sent us some beautiful twig branch lights.

The beautiful clear flowers on the branch look so great even when the light is switched off

When switched on they give a beautiful warm glow, and the flowers are clearly illuminated.

The twigs can be stood in a vase or on there own, to create a lovely display. As they are battery operated there are no wires and this means they can go any where in the house. I like that they are battery operated as there are no wires for the girls to trip over. The battery compartment is also not too bulky so it can be hidden in the bottom of a vase.

Our other special delivery was from the Christmas boutique. I opened the box and was suddenly felt very Christmassy. There were tree decorations, gift bags, and ornaments. Almost everything we needed for Christmas, the Christmas boutique have a wide range and something to suit everyone's taste. We had both modern items and more traditional items

Meaning that every home can find something to suit how they wish to decorate.

With me starting to be organised too I have also arranged letters from Santa to the girls. There were 4 letters to choose from, 3 suitable for any age and 1 for babies. I picked a different letter for each girl and also opted for an activity pack.

The activity pack contains:

Colouring in Santa stop here
Elf yourself activity sheet
Colouring in Christmas card
Door hanger
Colour and keep tree decoration

I am really looking forward to the girls doing these activities in December. I haven't yet given them the letters from Santa, I am waiting for a bit closer to the time but I know they will enjoy the activity pack. My daughters also have in their letter a certificate to say they are on the nice list. This will bring a huge smile to their faces as they are really into certificates at the moment.

The letter has been personalised to each girl. The process was really easy to do. I selected the present they both have asked for and included their friends names. This will make it extra special for each girl. I cannot wait to see their faces when they open their letters from Santa.

Next day delivery is available on the letters if ordered before 2pm and all letters will start leaving the Lapland mailing room from the 1st December.

I am really looking forward to bringing the magic of Christmas to the girls this year.
