Stocking filler ideas for me, the man, the toddler and the baby

With less than 50 days to go until Christmas, the big day is fast approaching – trust me, 50 days is not the much, especially if you have a larger extended family.  If – like me – you always leave present buying to the last minute, then you need to get organised this year - and I’ve already starting thinking of a few stocking filler ideas. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far…

The Baby

It's Dylan’s first Christmas this year, meaning it’s going to be a special time with my family and friends. The magic of Christmas is all about spoiling the children – whether they’re yours or somebody else’s - and spending some real quality time with them. For Dylan, I’m going to treat him to a festive onesie to keep him snug and warm throughout the winter. Plus, it’ll make for some cute pictures.

The Toddler

The present pile for Oli next month when he wakes up on Christmas morning is likely to be massive. Oli loves Fireman Sam, so I’m going to get him a soft talking Sam doll – even though it may just end up driving me bonkers by Boxing Day. It’s also a toy that Dylan can enjoy when he’s a bit older as well and this is something I think about when buying birthday and Christmas presents.

The Man

Buying for your other half can be tricky sometimes, especially for those with joint bank accounts, which can make planning surprises turns into a covert mission at times. This year I’ve been looking at luxurious mens underwear online at FigLeaves or a comfy morning robe. The reason for this is because it’ll look more natural on the bank statement if he checks it. Genius!

And finally…Meee 

While I was looking at that site for potential presents for him, I noticed just how high quality the nightwear from is – hint, hint! Being a mother of two, it can be too easy to just go for the comfortable and practical option when it comes to underwear, but I don’t want to end up looking like Bridget Jones in her big pants. No, I want to look and feel great this Xmas.
