Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Still looking for gifts?  Here are some of my top picks for gifts this year – a little something for everyone!

For the blogger

STM GRACE LAPTOP SLEEVE

Perfect for the stylish tech lover in your life.  It comes in a range of colours and you just know that your laptop/tablet is going to be safe in this case. I pop my laptop in it when I want to take it out and about with me (on those occasions where I need to get out of the house to actually get some writing done!) It’s available in 13″ and 15″ versions.

For the stylish next generation 

PROJECT MC2 PIXEL PURSE
As seen in the hugely popular Netflix original series, the Pixel Purse is the ultimate fashion accessory for the NOV8 agents’ next mission. Customise the multi-colour LED display with your own designs or phrases using FREE iOS and Android app. Also comes pre-programmed with 10 animations for easy out-of-the-box play.

It’s easy to programme in your own messages… it takes a little bit of getting used to if you want to write a long message. But the app is very easy to use, and this provides hours of entertainment.

For the family game moments

STACCUPS
Race your opponent against the clock to see who is the fastest at stacking their cups! Colour co-ordinated, this fast-paced game is all about reaction times and hand eye co-ordination. Will you be the first to stop the clock with your cups colour co-ordinated?

This is such a fast game!  Exciting too! I got confused a few times and put the wrong cup on, but it just adds to the fun.  I’m super competitive, and love games of speed, so this was right up my street!

For pre-schoolers

PEEKING IGGLE PIGGLE and MINI MAKKA PAKKA

Who has kids and hasn’t had the pleasure of watching In The Night Garden? NO ONE is the answer to that one! These guys are just TOO CUTE.  Iggle Piggle lifts up his blanket, and plays peekaboo with your little one! My youngest was entranced! And Makka Pakka is so soft and lovely – just perfect to snuggle up with.

For New Years Eve fun

HP SPROCKET

This is my new favourite toy.  No question about it! It’s a portable printer that is slick and gorgeous in design; perfect for taking on a night out!  Charge it up, load it with paper, and away you go!  No need to replace the ink because of ZINK technology; the result is smudge-proof, water-resistant, and tear-resistant photos.

I road tested this beautiful piece of kit when I went out for my besties hen night – I bought her a carousel photo frame, and we had a great time filling it up with her photos from the night. By the end of the night, her scrapbook (yes, they are stickers too!) and carousel were full of memories.

It actually encouraged us to take more photos throughout the night! Lots of people came up to me to ask what it was, and a number of people even said to me “that’s going on my Christmas list!”.

I couldn’t recommend this highly enough – a super little gadget!
