    Hi,
    Last year on your blog you had a guide/table that outlined 9 categories for gifts for the kids, they included things like ‘something to read’, ‘something to play with’, ‘something to experience’ etc. I can’t find it anywhere this year and last year was seriously the easiest shopping year of my life because I had that guide (and I’ve been a mum for 19 years so that’s pretty good going!)
    Can you repost it or tell me where I can find it. I’ve been searching through your archives all day!!
    Please help!!
    Mel :)ReplyCancel
