The Brightside Gifts from Really Good

Finding gifts that are a little bit different is always a challenge but The Brightside are a funky range of modern gifts with fun slogans that are available from Really Good, a small boutique online retailer.  They sell a mix of gifts and homeware accessories and use in house designers alongside individual artists to continually create and evolve the ever growing ranges.   A lot of The Brightside range centres around storage tins, always useful to keep various bits and pieces in, but these tins also look great and have fun words on the front.  The range is vast and there really is a tin to suit every person or occasion so we were excited to try out some of the items aimed at children and they arrived beautifully wrapped ready for us to try them out.

Some of the tins have a small padlock and key on the front which is a fun idea that kids will enjoy especially with the “Secret stuff to hide from parents” tin.  Although they may not be so keen on the “Screen time is suspended until further notice” tin but this one is a great size and perfect for locking away phones and tablets in.  Some general storage tins include the “Boy Stuff” and “Girl Treasures” which are both beautifully decorated and are great to keep bits and bobs in.  I like the way they use metallic colours on the tins to keep them bright and fresh looking.

There’s also a really fun, modern height chart with quirky sayings as they reach different heights.  One of my little boys favourite items is the handy torch shown above, a credit card size light with LED bulbs that very cleverly lights up as you click the button on it.  It also only stays on when you hold it in, so as soon as you let go it turns off – a revelation for me and my little boy who loves torches!  No more endless battery supplies needed with this one and it’s also very bright so my little boy loves to use it in the den under his bed and when looking for little things around the house.

Miss M just adores the bunny rabbit Pyjama Bag, a very cute drawstring bag, perfect for taking to sleepovers to pack her pj’s in.  It’s simple but has an effective silver bunny rabbit design all over that girls love and has already been to two sleepovers this year!!

Mister B loves the wooden door sign which immediately made it’s way onto his bedroom door.  The money tin is perfect for all those pennies he keeps finding out and about and the super hero plasters are just the coolest thing he has seen for cuts and grazes. Each plaster has a slogan such as “Dinosaur Bite” or “Dragon Burn”.

Being away at New Year saw this back pack get it’s first outing as Mister B carefully packed it with his toys and pyjama’s and put it on his back ready to go out.  He looked so cute and I just love the fun design on this bag, so different to anything you see on the high street, you can be sure he won’t get his bag mixed up with anyone elses.

One of my favourite products is the behaviour book.  It’s a high quality A4 chart where you can list both good and naughty things the child has done on each day of the week.  There’s a few sheets of stickers for you to use too to help encourage children to improve and brighten up the chart.  Each page can be ripped off at the end of the week ready for a fresh week ahead. This will be brilliant for my children and I’ve decided to keep the sheets we use to look back on in future months to see how well they’ve done (or not!).

They also have a range of celebration cards which do not disappoint.  I love all of them!! The age designs are all quirky but cute and look really lovely.  Being unisex too, they can be given to anyone on their birthdays.

The top line of cards are from a different range, Showtime – How fabulous are these cards?  Each come with an individual letter on the front and by pressing the button in the bottom corner, they light up!  I just love these cards and think they are perfect for celebrating with and will look amazing on someone’s mantlepiece both during their birthday and as a keepsake afterwards.  I’ll certainly be keeping our ones as we were lucky to be sent our initials which are just perfect!

All in all, I think The Brightside range of goods are really lovely.  They have their own unique style and fun words that will appeal to everyone and you could really pick a gift out for someone of any age.  Available from Really Good, I would highly recommend a visit as there are many other The Brightside gifts aimed at adults along with many other exciting ranges.  You’ll be sure to find something, if not many things that catch your eye from this fresh thinking, unique retailer!

Melt & Make Chocolate House – Review

The Melt & Make Chocolate House by choconchoc is available from what2buy4kids and is a high quality, fun to make activity suitable for children aged 4+.  The kit comprises of the house moulds, a garden scene colouring sheet, two bags of good quality chocolate buttons (one white and one milk) and a chef’s paper hat for the child to wear.

choconchoc houseMy two children, Miss M age 8 and Mister B age 5, didn’t need any encouragement  in participating in this activity, in fact their eye’s lit up in delight at the prospect of building a house out of chocolate which they could then eat!

choconchoc house 2The kit is simple and well thought out to make the job really easy and the first task was to melt the buttons in a bowl.  Miss M was in charge of the white ones, and Mister B the milk buttons.  I microwaved each of their bowls which they then stirred up to turn the buttons into gooey, runny chocolate.  At this point they were both begging to lick their spoons but I told them to fill the moulds first which they eagerly did using a teaspoon to spread the molten chocolate around.

choconchoc house 3Next came the obligatory spoon licking while the moulds were put in the fridge to set.  They also used this time to colour in the garden sheet upon which you can rest the finished house on to create a little 3D scene.

choconchoc house 4Once the chocolate had set hard, I helped the children to press the shapes carefully out of the moulds to ensure we didn’t break any pieces. I thought the pieceds looked great with a good depth of detail that was really clear and made the house look really effective.  We then put them carefully together using a little molten chocolate on our fingers to glue the pieces in place – the kids loved this idea and wanted to put ‘glue’ everywhere!

choconchoc house 5I have to say I’m quite impressed by the finished house, it looked really good for quite minimal effort.  The children were really pleased with their finished piece and looked longingly at it wondering when they could start tasting it.  I made them wait until after dinner so that we could admire our handywork for a couple of hours but when we did taste it, it was very good – the bonus of having good quality chocolate in the kit!

choconchoc house 6This kit was a great activity which both of my children thoroughly enjoyed.  The set would make great gifts for children at any time of the year, so well worth looking out for.

2 for £10 Gift Ideas from The Works

With Christmas looming, and many a day spent searching for presents that don’t cost a fortune, then look no further than The Works.  They have a fabulous selection of low cost gifts available, with any 2 costing just £10!  With something for everyone, children and adults, I’ve been taking a look at what’s on offer.

The worksCaptureFor adults there is a variety of things such as cookbooks, and a variety of dvd and book sets.  I’m really pleased with the Crochet dvd and book set as it’s a craft I’m keen to learn after trying it out earlier this year, and this will be perfect to learn from with simple, clear instructions.  This would make a lovely gift for a beginner to the world of crochet.

The works 4For boys, how about this fun Dinosaur Operation game.  My little boy loves dinosaurs and has been eyeing up operation style games for a while.  The dinosaur has obviously been eating things that he shouldn’t and has various tools as well as bones inside his body that need extracting as part of the game.  This would be a fun game for the family to play on Christmas day and a bargain at just £5 when bought as part of the 2 for £10 gift range.

 

The works 3This Build Your Own Rocket set looks like fun for boys and has a little booklet as well as a rocket parachute to make.  The booklet contains lots of ideas for rocket based ideas and experiments to make using simple things like a balloon etc I think there are plenty of ideas in here to keep boys occupied over the Christmas period and into the New Year!

The works 2One I think my daughter will love is a Crystal growing kit.  She’s loves science and experiments so I think this is a great mix of the two and something she can watch grow over a period of time.  With six crystals to grow I’m sure we’ll have windowsill full before long and they can be kept after as decorative pieces.

WP_20151211_14_38_26_ProYarn craft is a fun set for girls and my daughter does love anything needlework related.  This set allows you to make 12 fun activities using wool including pom poms, decorative wool hearts, hair for sock puppets and more.  The box also includes some googly eyes to use in some of your making projects.

I think the range of gift ideas from The Works this Christmas has a great variety and are an absolute bargain at just £5 each when bought as part of their 2 for £10 gift range. There really is something for all the family, so I’d definitely recommend checking them out either in store or online where you can get them delivered in time for Christmas.

A Sparkly Christmas at Lush

Christmas at Lush is a sparkly, glittery and seasonally fragrant affair that will leave you feeling all festive with all the products and gifts they have on offer.  I had a preview on the launch day of the new Christmas and Halloween ranges as they were fresh into my local store in Plymouth, to see what amazing new products have launched and which firm favourites have returned from previous years for another festive season.

lushWe were greeted with drinks and some fabulous cupcakes from the local Mrs Brown’s bakery which looked too good to eat and very festively decorated!

lush 3Then it was on to the bath section, packed full of glorious bath bombs, melts and bubble bars.  We had some demonstrations of bath bombs in action but here are some that caught my eye.

The Magic of Christmas reusable bubble bar is so festive, a star shape decorated with cloves and star anise, it’s perched on a cinnamon stick.  It’s burnt orange colour gives a warming feeling as the chilly evenings draw in and it’s covered in golden glitter, perfect for a hot bath to relax in the evening.  It has a cute ribbon tied around it’s collar along with a cute anti rusting bell.  The idea is you swirl it in the bath water to create a heavenly, softening bubble bath, packed full of bubbles and a Christmassy aroma of cinnamon, orange and almond.

Stardust is a snowy white Frozen inspired bath bomb with bergamont to uplift you.  Inside it’s white exterior lies a blue and white swirly mass of bubbles and a surprise of edible stars that will float around your bathtub twinkling under the lights.

lush aMagic Wand is a silver glitter coated pink bubble bar on a stick with a festive bell and ribbon attached.  I know my daughter will just love this so got her one to try out.

Five Gold Rings are individual bubble bars, glistening and tied onto a ribbon.  With a sparkly gold coat they are infused with fair trade vanilla and uplifting moringa oil.

Peeping Santa is a rather cute bubble bar that can be split into two halves for two baths!  Bursting with strawberry sweet bergamot and geranium oils and cocoa butter in the middle section, this sounds like a refreshing but relaxing bath full of bubbles.

Candy Mountain is a swirling pink bubble bar rich in vanilla for a soft, relaxing soak.

lush bNext stop, the shower section which was packed full of an array of different and interesting products.  First off, Snow Fairy, a popular favourite with candy floss aromas in a delectable pink colour.   I was tempted but opted to try the Rose Jam as I’m rather partial to to roses and love their fragrance. Never having tried Rose Jam I’m keen to give it a try in the shower over the next few weeks and trust me, it smells heavenly!

lush 7The Icing on the Cake Roulade is a shower smoothie and definitely one that looked quite luxurious, full of citrus peels and chestnut puree.  Perfect for a relaxing shower at the end of the day.

Santa’s Scrub is a mixture of castor sugar, dates and cherries to leave your lips smooth and soft and then you can follow it with Santa Baby, a long lasting lip tint with carrot oil and cinnamon.

Something that was new to me was shower jelly in the form of Santa’s Belly or Snowman.  They literally are just like jelly but quite stable and you rub them over your body to lather them up and wash.

The Cranberry Festive Face Mask smelt lovely and felt great on the back of my hand.  I think this would be wonderful on your face, packed with cranberries, fennel seeds, argan oil and rose clay.  It left the back of my hand feeling smooth and soft.

lush 5The soap bars available this Christmas are Yog Nog, Snow Cake and Baked Alaska shown below along with Reindeer Rock which I didn’t catch a picture off.

lush 2With so many products on offer, you really need to visit a store to check them all out.  Some I haven’t had time to mention are Christingle a body conditioner, Fairy Dust a fun glittery powder along with lots of other bath bombs and bubble bars.  Get along to your local store today and check out the amazing array of ethical goodies to fill your bathroom during the festive season.

I must just mention the Christmas gift selection with it’s cleverly thought out packaging, all very ethically sourced I must add.  Christmas Wishes is a wind up carousel that plays a festive tune, Sleeps ‘Til Christmas has a countdown dial on the front to help you count down the days and The Human Cannonball with it’s cracker snap to open the box that greets you with a colourful display!

lush 6I’m going to finish off with a quick overview of the Halloween range of which includes Lord of Misrule bath bomb and shower gel, Nightwing shower jelly and Sparkly Pumpkin which I couldn’t resist trying.  With juniperberry, lime and grapefruit oils this filled my bath with bubbles and left my skin feeling supersoft and relaxed. Definitely one to use again.

lush 8Keep an eye out for my review of the Xmas products once I’ve tried them in a future post.

Rose_Bubbleroon_WebAs the evenings get darker and the nights draw in there is nothing better than having an evening soak in a hot bath to feel totally relaxed, calm and ready to curl up in bed.  Rose Jam Bubbleroon from Lush is the perfect accompaniment leaving your bath water filled with bubbles, softening your skin and leaving you feeling relaxed and lifted on a cold, dark night.

ijustloveit.co.uk Online Gift Store – Review

I Just Love It is a wonderful online gift store, with a wide variety of gifts, many of them personalised giving them added meaning to the recipient.  They also have things that are a little bit different from the high street, meaning you can find something unique and special for birthday’s, anniversaries and Christmas etc.

I chose a selection of gifts, all for me to try out and I have to say I haven’t been disappointed!

giftsI should save the best till last but I just have to show you this amazing personalised cake tin.  I absolutely adore it, both in style and quality and it will take pride of place in my kitchen.  It is a little pricey at £42.99, but when you see it with its personalisation and feel it’s strong sturdy quality, you’ll know it’s worth having!

gifts 4The metal is really thick and strong, this tin really is made to last.  It has a handle on top of the lid to aid in opening.  What makes this tin different to others I’ve seen is the airtight seal, meaning that your cakes will stay really fresh and biscuits will stay crisp.  I love the grey colour, neutral but stylish.  The personalisation really makes this tin special though, and makes it the perfect tin to keep on show as well as the perfect storage for all my lovely baked treats.  I can’t wait to serve visitors with a treat from my tin when they come round for tea!

gifts 3This Personalised My Family Keyring is so cute with a silver charm for each child that is engraved with their name and a heart for wording of your choice, of which I chose my name.  The charms are made from a zinc alloy making them sturdy and strong.  At £12.99 I think this would make a lovely gift, I certainly would be more than happy receiving this from my children at birthdays or Christmas (obviously with another adult helping them to buy and order it).  This will be home to my house keys from now and live in my handbag,  I’m very pleased with this item.

gifts 6A girl can never be without too many make up bags, you know what it’s like, some get a bit old and need replacing, you need one for make up, one for hair bits, one for other toiletries etc.. I really like the simple but elegant style of this Beauty Parlour Wash Bag and with its neutral colours and pvc coated cotton outer, it’s practical and also a good size.  This one does seem really well made and at £14.99 is a good price for the quality and has room to hold quite a few items.  It’s sitting proudly in my bathroom at the moment, full of little bits and bobs to make it look at bit tidier but I’m also looking forward to using it when I go away.

gifts 2A small but cute gift is this Grow Me Say It With Flowers Seed Kit and priced at £3.99 is a bargain.  I love roses and hope this successfully grows and is something I can plant in the garden.  An ideal stocking filler or smaller gift if you are doing a bag of presents, then this is the perfect extra.

gifts 5I’ve been really pleased with the selection of gifts from I Just Love It and would happily shop there again.  The items are certainly different from what you’d find elsewhere and the personalisation on the some of the items is unique and makes them stand out a bit.  If you are stuck for gift ideas, then I’d definitely give here a look, the range is vast and you’re sure to find something for person you are gifting.

Wicked Uncle Online Gift Shop – Review

Wicked Uncle is an online gift retailer with a little difference.  It aims to be of help to those unsure what to buy or what is appropriate to a certain age.  It covers all ages from babies to teens so there really is something for everyone.

Rather than sitting for hours scrolling through pages of gifts, they are categorised by gender and age, don’t worry, lot’s of products are included in both boys and girls but it helps to segregate them by what is most popularly bought for the relevant category.

w1Once you have chosen you are then given a large page of gifts to look through all of which will be age appropriate for the child you are purchasing for.  There is a wide choice available from crafts to magic, stationery to gadgets and bath treats to edible items.

I had a look through and chose a couple of items I thought my children would love to see what they thought.  I chose the Melissa and Doug Rainforest Stamp Set as my two love stamping, particularly Mister B and I knew this was something he’d be happy to sit and do.  Also they love animals and there’s lot of different scenes they can create with these.

rainforestRetailing at £14.99, I thought it was great value with a total of 20 stamps, a double coloured stamp pad and pack of coloured pencils.  They also come in a wooden tray style box which is great to store craft bits on a shelf.   My two children were eager to get stamping when they saw this and I gave them each an A3 sheet of paper to get creative on.

rainforest 1They soon realised that if they put the stamp over both colours of the ink pad they could get mulitcoloured stamps which they thought was fascinating.  The stamps are all of great quality, being wooden means they look good too.  The choice of stamps in this set is really good with a mixture of animals and some foliage designs too.

rainforest 3The children really enjoyed these and I think it’s a lovely set, one that I definitely recommend for anyone who fancies a go with stampers.

 

We also chose something a little bit different to try out from Wicked Uncle, something practical that I knew Miss M would enjoy.  The Big Cheese Making Kit, allows you to make cheese in your own home and lots of it too!  Miss M loves cooking and I wanted to pick something that was useful and I think this was just the right thing.

cheeseAt £22.99 this wasn’t cheap and when the box arrived, it was pretty small.  Inside was a sachet of salt, sachet of Citric Acid, 2 rennet tablets, thermometer and muslin cloth.  The kit enables you to make either Ricotta or Mozzarella cheese, all you need to add is millk, a LOT of it!!  So was it worth it?

cheesexWe decided to try the Mozzarella cheese, which required 8 pints of milk per batch.  I wasn’t sure how long it would take or how easy it would be but Miss M and I set to work.  I actually found the whole process to be incredibly easy and it was more or less a case of simply heating the milk in a large pan, adding a piece of rennet tablet, salt and citric acid, then stirring continuously as the curds and whey separated.

cheeseOnce you have just the curds in a bowl, it needs microwaving to heat up at which point you need to wear gloves as the cheese needs to be stretched and kneaded until it becomes shiny which can then be broken up into balls of Mozzarella.  We made rather a lot of balls of cheese with that one batch (not surprising considering we used 8 pints of milk) but the set does contain enough bits to make upto 10 batchs of cheese of this size.  Obviously you need to add the milk each time but at £2 per batch I think it is pretty good value for the amount of cheese you get.  Also bearing in mind that part of it is the experience and fun of doing so.

cheese 2We’ve enjoyed eating the cheese in salads and on puff pastry tarts with roasted vegetables.  Obviously Mozzarella has many uses and in our next batch we are planning to make some pizzas with it.  We also want to try making some Ricotta cheese for which you use the muslin to strain the cheese, I’m thinking spinach and ricotta parcels for mains and ricotta cheesecake for dessert!  All in all I’m very happy with the cheese set, it was fantastic to try something new, a very different experience that Miss M loved helping out with and we had fun eating it!

Why not take a look at Wicked Uncle, the choice of gifts really is vast with some really different things available that you don’t normally see!

Great Gizmos NICI Stationery for Kids – Review

Great Gizmos sell a wide range of children’s toys and gifts, and have a lovely selection from the brand NICI, of which we were sent a few items to try out.  I could immediately tell all the items are of a high quality, well made and look good so I was keen to get the children to try them out.

niciWe received a Timmy the sheep backpack, sloth pencil case, coloured pencil tin and child size scissors.

timmy - Copy timmy 2 - CopyThe Timmy backpack has been a huge success in both it’s softness and likeness to a cuddly toy as well as it’s usefulness as a bag.  Both my children loved this and decided to take turns each day in using it.  Miss M above is modelling it and you can see it’s a medium size bag and Timmy’s head lifts up to get inside.  It fastens with a strong magnetic button that keeps everything secure inside.  The straps are adjustable and are a lovely bright lime green colour.  The bag itself is exceptionally soft and my children loved cuddling it when they were out and about in place of a cuddly they would use at home.  This bag has been a hit with my two and has even been on it’s first trip to France and was great to carry a few useful items in.

nici 2The Sloth pencil case is lovely, one of the most luxurious pencil cases around.  It feels so soft to the touch and has a really cute sloth on the outsdie.  Inside the lid unrolls to reveal storage for a number of pens or pencils.  You then have the main zipped compartment with plenty of storage inside for all your other stationery items.

The scissors are cute with a wild animal theme and are sharp enough to cut well, but perfect for little fingers.  My little boy has made good use of these as he loves to cut his pictures out when he draws them.

nici 3I just love the coloured pencils in the Kangaroo tin, how I would have loved these as a child!  The ideal of them being double ended with two different colours in each pencil is fabulous and means you only have to carry half the amount of pencils around with you but still have all the colours!

I think the NICI range of stationery from Great Gizmos is lovely and made to a high standard.  They are a little pricier than other brands, but to be honest, you get what you pay for.  I’ll definitely keep an eye out for other NICI products as I’ve been really pleased with what we’ve tried out here.

The Shed Inc Gifts – Review

The Shed Inc is a homeware website selling a wonderful array of items for around the home, featuring gorgeous high quality fabrics and unique designs.  We received a selection to try out in the Moggy and Pink Daisy designs.

shedBeing a cat lover the Moggy design products immediately appealed to me.  In a very neutral taupe and off white colour they will suit any kitchen or room.  The first thing I noticed about The Shed Inc’s products is the quality.  Immediately you can see these are well made using strong, durable fabrics that feel thick and being 100% cotton are machine washable.

shed 2The tea towel is really thick and absorbent and looks lovely hanging over my kitchen radiator. The oven gloves are equally thick with great padding to ensure your fingers don’t get burnt when using the oven.  They are well made with thick, well stitched binding that will last.  I also love the cute Moggy design and they look great in the kitchen.

shed 3shed 4I also tried this large wash bag which is tall, perfect for items such as deodorant, hairspray etc.  It comes in the same Moggy design but has is a wipeable coated fabric, perfect for sitting in steamy areas.  The inside is cotton, but ideal for dry items as mentioned above.  There is also a really sturdy, heavy duty zip across the top, which is brilliant although I did find the opening slightly on the narrow side, it felt like it needed to be a little bit wider.

shed 5I just love the Pink Daisy items we received for Miss M and her eyes lit up when she saw them which is a good sign.  The cotton tote bag is a nice size and can have many uses but perfect for Miss M to put her book and a couple of Barbie dolls in when she goes out.

The apron was an immediate hit too and before I knew it she had it on along with her chef’s hat ready to bake!!

Again with these products they are made with incredibly thick, durable cotton and finished beautifully with thorough stitching.  The apron has a lovely thick binding around the edge which adds to the look and design as well.

shed 6I love all the products we have tried from The Shed Inc and feel that they are all made to an excellent standard.  Not only are would they be a lovely treat to buy for yourself, but they are perfect for gifts.  With other prints and products available, why not take a look at The Shed Inc and you may just find yourself wanting to treat yourself to one of their lovely products.
