Personalised Photo Gifts From Bags Of Love | Review

I’ve always been a fan of personalised gifts. What could be better than one of your favourite photos on a mug, cushion, or a canvas print? They’re beautiful memories and totally unique.

This is where bags of love come in, I was offered not one but two of their products to review, they have a huge range of gifts to choose from so are perfect for any occasion.

We chose a clock and a mug.

Square Clock – Priced at £44.00

The ordering process was so easy, you choose whether you want square or rectangle, choose the format of numbers/dials, and finally the colour of the hands, then upload the desired photo.  .  You can preview the product before you buy it to see how it is going to look prior to buying and how well the picture fits.  We decided to put a picture of our dog Carly on it.  The square clock is sized 22cm x 22cm.

Personalised Mug – Priced at £10.00

I LOVE THIS!! It was so hard to try and decide which photos I wanted to put on my mug though.  Finally made a decision to put the above photos on from our newborn pre wedding photo shoot.

The whole process from start to finish was stress free and so easy.

I would be sure to use this company again for pressies as these would make great gifts for all the family.

Hugzzies – A warm Hug | Review

Have you heard of Hugzzies? Probably not as they are brand new!

 Hugzzies are a super soft teddy bear with a microwavable lavender infused wheat bag inside that hugs around the waist giving the feeling of a warm hug, for use at home or on the go.

There are 5 Hugzzies to choose from:

Dexter the Dog.

Pauley the Panda.

Carly the Cat.

Mikey the Monkey.

Betty the Bunny.

Hugzzies could be used for a warm hug by fastening around the child’s waist with a velcro band on those cold nights or can be used without the wheat bag to carry children’s toys (like a bum bag).

We chose Dexter the dog.

With the cold weather drawing in this will be perfect for those cold nights when you first get into those chilly bedsheets.  The only one thing my nephew Jack didn’t like about it was the smell of lavender.

These are priced at £9.99 each which I think is very reasonable.  They would make a great present for children.

Bathtime #My Sunday Photo

Our little Monkey Freddie hates baths but doesn’t mind showers so much, we try and shower him at least a couple times a week.  He is getting better slowly and not screaming the house down every time.

My favourite part is when I get to wrap him up in his cute animal Towels.

Today he will be my little elephant.

Pandemonio | Review And Giveaway

Back in November last year we worked with Drummond Park to review a game call Stoopido. We loved it that much they have sent us another game called Pandemonio, So here is another review and giveaway for your chance to WIN!

The riotous new PANDEMONIO from Drumond Park is a brilliant, quick-fire card trading game for up to 8 people – where everyone plays at once, all the time! Yes – it’s sheer pandemonium… loud, raucous – and, of course, extremely funny. And with two levels of game play it’s perfect for all age and skill groups!

How to play

Each turn, players must collect as many cards as possible, all with the same image that their playing piece is sitting on. Everyone starts with eight cards, and Colin is wound up and set off along his track.

This is the point where everyone gets swapping madly (with cards FACE DOWN – so you don’t know what you’re getting!) for an equal number of an opponent’s cards. As Colin gets to the end of track, the swapping gets ever more frantic, until Colin grinds to a halt! Then everyone moves their playing piece along the board by the number of correct cards collected. If anyone has no matching cards, they just sit tight until the next go.  Each round, the players must get rid of their old cards and collect cards that match the new board square their piece is now sitting on. The first player to get all the way up the board – to land on or pass the Start line – WINS

At first we did struggle a little as to how to play but once we had got the hang of it, it was lots of fun very crazy with lots of shouting.

Would I recommend this game…Yes! It a great game for all the family to get involved in.

The game is prices at £19.99 and is for ages 8 to adult
