An alternative Christmas Wish List – Perfect for parents and parents-to-be

That’s it … we have entered the Christmas bubble. A bubble of festive decorating – (Did you see the White House’s xmas decorations this year?!), where school nights have turned into a blur of office parties and get togethers, and … dare I say it … PANIC PRESSIE BUYING!

Well, if you’re like me you’re only just beginning to cross off names on your ever growing present list and it’s the same culprits each year WHO I JUST HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO GET!

So Ladies and Gentlemen … I have been on the hunt for 10 great alternative xmas pressies! Perfect for Mummies and Daddies to-be, new parents – lets not forget that Daddies also need some TLC, and…well actually ANYONE. NONE of which can be bought on the high street! Whey hey!

Here goes … (and in no particular order)
