Crafty Sunday! Teacher gifts!

It’s crept up very quickly… The end of term is nearly here! I can’t believe my son’s first year of school is nearly over. 😩

So I’ve been thinking of ‘Thank You’ gifts for teachers. I’m pretty sure they get fed up with copious amounts of chocolate, biscuits and mugs they receive so I was trying to think of something different. Eventually I found this picture on Pinterest and decided we are going to give a go! 

Aswell as this I thought some homemade thank you cards from dude would be great aswell so I’ve picked up some bits for him and that’s our plan for this afternoon.

 He loves making patterns on his Spirograph aswell so this will go on the front of the card 🙂

What have you all got planned for teacher gifts this year? Let me know in the comments!


Unique Father’s Day Gift ideas!

When it comes to Father’s Day, I always struggle to get something different and original. It’s ok to get dad’s normal aftershave, favourite tipple or simply new socks and smellies but sometimes you want something a bit more original!

Here are a few ideas for that Dad that is a little more unique:

1. For the garden loving dad

If you have a loved one who is interested in conservation, or know someone who loves our beautiful butterflies flying through their garden, this is a very special and heart-warming gift!

£24.99 Available here

2. For the chocolate loving dad

Special Edition Fathers Day Chocolate Pizza is made from high quality Belgian milk chocolate and decorated with orange rainbow drops, milk chocolate curls, and finished off with a white chocolate plaque!

3. For the dad’s that like personalised gifts

More than a card, this beautifully illustrated 12-page book is a wonderful way for children to show their love for daddy.

4. For the fun loving dad

Finish filling in the cards, fold them up, pop them back in the jar and pick one out when you’re ready to go on a grand exploration! Or you want to make a den in the sitting room.
