    Partywear

    partywear-sparkle-leather-skirt
    Tis the season! I  love this time of year, with all the parties  and occasions, I can dip into parts of my wardrobe that are gathering dust. I’m a huge fan of sequins/sparkle and Marks and Spencer have a big selection of partywear  to choose from. Since I have more of that than I get a chance to wear I chose this amazing leather skirt to get me through the party season and well beyond. A good quality leather skirt is such an amazing staple to own because it is so versatile year round for almost any occasion. The details on this one make it a bit special too. The zip and large pockets at the front make it feel a bit retro in the best way.

     For her

    Cashmere– This will come as no surprise if you follow me but receiving a cashmere jumper/cardigan/scarf or anything really is such a treat, especially as many people can’t justify buying it for themselves. The best kind of present that would be so appreciated.

    Satin Pyjamas– As I mentioned I think the best presents to give and receive are those that you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself. A little bit of luxury that feels special when you wear it. I only recently got a some satin pj’s and they feel amazing on and look fab too!

    Fondue gift set– Brilliant for parties or dinner parties, this cheese/chocolate fondue set also looks gorgeous!

    Filligree jewellery box–  I love this jewellery box, it’s decorative aswell as functional. M&S have some other lovely jewellery boxes to choose from too!

    Copper cafetiere and cups

    Photo frame– Lots of frames to choose from but I love the hanging ones the most!

    Bonded fleece dressing gown– This looks so cosy and I love the fact it’s in a darker colour considering the amount of time I spend in my dressing gown.

    For him


    Cashmere scarf–  Soft, amazing quality and the easiest present to get anyone who has everything. I picked up the charcoal one up for Kenny

    Leather belt-  Don’t overlook a good leather belt as a gift. Sometimes it’s the only accessory worn by a man so it’s nice to have options!

    Leather wallet and cardsafe– I’ve gotten a wallet for my dad every couple of years for the last twenty. A no brainer.

    Slippers–  I don’t know about you but there aren’t too many men I know that would go and buy themsleves a pair of slippers. So nice to receive though!

    Shawl neck fleece dressing gown- I asked Kenny to pick his favourite dressing gown and he chose this! Again there are loads more options.

    unicorn costume marks and spencer kids costumes

    For kids

    pyjamas– I honestly cannot say enough about M&S PJ’s. I’ve always gotten them for the kids since Freya was a baby and they just last for such a long time.

    Unicorn slippers

    Transporter play set

    Dress up costumes – Always a winner I chose Rapunzel, Spiderman and the unicorn costume

    Friendship bracelets–  Freya got a friendship bracelet in the post recently from her penpal and shes been obsessed ever since. Brilliant for 6-9 year olds

    Paint your own dinosaurs

    Stunt buggy– This is Kenny’s idea, more for himself than Odhran I reckon! It arrived today and the quality looks fantastic.

    charades time

    Books

    Walkmates boots and shoes- Walkmates shoes and boots are designed to support childrens feet. I chose these grey boots for Amelie because she’s had them before and I was so impressed with them. They go with everything too!
