Amazon's Top 10 toys for Christmas 2018

Amazon has released it's Top 10 toys for Christmas 2018. There is some tat on this list (hello Unicorn which poops rainbow slime) but also some decent toys on the list. I've had a look through the list and some of these gifts already have a 1-4 week dispatch time. My advice would be, if you think your children would like any of these toys, to order ASAP. Now that Toys R Us is no longer a thing, it's going to be trickier than ever for those of us who like to leave it to the last minute. I am tempted by the Interactive AI robot, the Harry Potter LEGO Hogwarts Express (which is actually on sale for a decent price I think) plus the Little Live Pets Una Wrapples. Let me know if you'll be buying anything from this list this year.

11 ways to still have a magical Christmas when your children are too old for Santa

Visiting Father Christmas has always been such a big part of Christmas for us and it's something I always look forward to. So what happens when your children out-grow this tradition? Nothing really prepares you for it and it just kind of happens. You never visit Father Christmas and think at the time 'this may be our last time'. As a warning to other parents, I feel this happens when your children reach the age of 9/10. Harry is almost 12 now and he didn't visit Father Christmas at intu Metrocentre with us last year and I this year I've booked to visit Father Christmas at Alnwick Garden without him. If it wasn't for the fact that Heidi and Jack have a little cousin to enjoy this experience with now, I reckon they'd not be far behind Harry.

Christmas Eve Box Ideas for a One Year Old

*Post contains affiliate links

I love creating a Christmas Eve box and for me, it's one of the most magical parts of Christmas. They aren't for everyone and if you don't like them, this isn't the post for you. If however, you are looking for a few ideas for putting together your first Christmas Eve box this year, then read on. The idea is, an elf will leave your child a special box with some special treats with a little bit of magic to keep your children entertained on Christmas Eve (at least that's the story in our house).

Eeek I am SO excited to be sharing my first Christmas post of 2018. I plan my life using my mobile phone but when it comes to Christmas, I love to use pen and paper and like to treat myself to a new Christmas planner. I tend to buy the Cath Kidston one and I love this year's townhouse design.
