Gift Idea for Dads: Joke Jar

We have Father’s Day coming up in the UK in a few weeks time, so I thought I would share a great DIY gift idea that kids can easily make themselves (this would obviously also make a great gift for mums who like jokes). Oskar actually made this for his dad last Christmas, so we […] Read more…

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

With Mothering Sunday looming here in the UK at the end of March, and then Mother’s Day in May in many other parts of the world including Germany (must remember to buy a card for my mum now to send her in May!), I thought it would be fun to put together a wee gift […] Read more…

Toys for Boys – An Alternative Gift Guide

In the run up to Christmas, the internet is always flooded with gift guides of all descriptions. My favourite gift guides for kids are those that are themed by interests – such as gift guides for explorers, music lovers, little cooks, engineers or architects, or my own recent guides for book bugs or creative kids.

I had such fun putting together the Gift Guide for Little Book Bugs last week, that I thought I would put together another one with some of my favourite ideas for kids to get creative. Of course, there are the obvious things, such as art supplies, play dough, dressing up clothes and Lego, which you […] Read more…

Gift Guide for Little Book Bugs

What do you give a kid for Christmas who loves books? A book, of course! Or several books, even. When I was a kid, we always received a book for Christmas, and for our birthday, regardless of what else we got. But if you are looking to give something a bit more than a book […] Read more…

With Christmas fast approaching, everyone is on the look out for great gift ideas, and in my eyes, books are always a perfect […] Read more…

Danish Kids Favourites

  Somewhere between my first and my second baby, I discovered my love for Danish design. Since we’d saved pretty much all our baby stuff the first time round, baby no.2 was fully equipped, which I took as an excuse to invest in a couple of additional high quality pieces, so he wouldn’t just have hand-me-downs.

Gift Idea: Explorer Kit

Autumn is birthday season in our family, and every year I’m faced with the same question: what gift to get kids that already have everything? Books are a given, but they have a playroom spilling over with toys, so I like to think of alternative ideas to put together for them, or things I can […] Read more…

What to pack in a ‘Schultüte’

So, now that you have heard all about German traditions for starting school, and learned how to make your very own ‘Schultüte’, I wanted to share what’s going in my son’s Schultüte to give you some inspiration. Just to recap, a Schultüte is a large cardboard cone filled with sweets, school supplies and other small […] Read more…

Mummy & Mini…at the Beach

The boys and I are off on our first ever beach holiday today for a week! Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t look too good, but we’re being optimistic and have packed a few beach essentials. Firstly, our beloved hats – I brought mine back from London in June, and the boys wanted ones ‘just like mummy’. […] Read more…
