Advent Calendars - CocoCards loves...

So many advent calendars to choose from, so I have added below some cute alternatives to the chocolate calendars.

From not on the high street - the Bucket advent calendar, great as you can choose what goes in each one, maybe even some fruit one day!!

A wooden Nordic reindeer advent calendar - again you can add presents, chocolates, sweets anything, so parents have total control over their childrens sweetie intake - perfect and so gorgeous.

How many sleeps till Christmas - my kids always base everything on how many sleeps - from M&S

These chocolates look divine from Montezumas.

I have been given some chocolate calendars by Grandma, but I have bought my kids these amazing advent calendars, they will just love it. Lego advent calendars.

Arley Hall - christmas shopping

I went to the most lovely Christmas Shopping spectacular yesterday at Arley Hall, it was just so lovely to see so many independent companies, mostly ran by women, very inspiring.
It was also raising money for the Seashell Trust, which is a really wonderful charity.

I have added just a few things below that I saw and bought.

From Hullabaloo toys I bought my favourite creative toys for my nieces and children for Christmas, we have had lots of Djeco before and wow they are beautiful and keep the children occupied and enthralled for a very long time.

I bought a beach bag for our next holiday and all the sun we will be having next year - ever hopeful from Klobbabags, they are huge and so well made, all in fun tasteful designs.

My children love writing stories, so I bought them their very own hand made notebooks from Handmadebooksonline.com. I just might be tempted to have Mollys for my own.

Really wanted to buy one of these wraps bought maybe a hint for a christmas present, from Birds of Paradise.
