Christmas Gift Guide PART 2

11. Fellowes 
When it comes to technology Mr.B knows more about it than me, so when I asked him if he would like a Fellowes shredder to review his response was "yeah please, I have never heard of Fellowes before" so off he went to google them.

The shredder came very well packaged in a large box, about the same size as Alesha.

The very hungry shredder

Mr.B was like a very excited child at Christmas because he couldn't wait to get his hands on it to try it out, he even had some old bank statements at the ready to shred.

The shredder is a great way to dispose of household documents that may expose a families personal information including addresses and bank details. A shredder can protect against fraud, takes no time at all and saves annoying calls to the bank when information is stolen. The shredders also shred debit and credit cards, not just paper.

Mr.B was very pleased with the large 18L capacity bin and how stylish it looked.
Another good point is the electronic start/stop button, let's hope Alesha doesn't figure that out!
To empty the bin it was a very easy process of standing on the foot petal to pop it out and then once emptied just insert it back in, no hassle what so ever!

These can be purchased from Tesco, Argos and many other selected online retailer's and stores. Currently costing £99 with free delivery.

A perfect gift for someone who is forever complaining about stacks of paper in the house. 


12. Wooden Name Train

I received this product from the Wooden Name Train company and was in love with it as soon as I opened the package.

Made from wood and on wheels, each carriage connects together so can be moved along by  
your loved one as a great toy, or can be put on a shelf like i have done as a classic keepsake for when they are older.

The Wooden Name Train make a unique and timeless gift for babies and toddlers. For only £1 per letter (the vast majority of names under £10), these personalised gifts are the perfect stocking filler for any baby or toddler.

The trains are not only a lovely keepsake for children under one but can also double up as a toy for toddlers (boy's & girl's) and children aged 2-3, the wooden name train helps kids with spelling their name.

You can even have a wooden name train made saying 'Daddy' or a pets name, so they really are for anybody!.

Alana's is safe on a shelf for when she is older ( a lovely keepsake) and I'm sure she will love and treasure this gift for many years to come!


13. Zumba Fitness Core xbox 360

I try to stay in shape but can sometimes find it boring doing the same old routine day in day out, so when I was asked to review Zumba Core I thought why not try something new!.
The game launched on Friday 9th November and is available on nintendo wii and xbox 360, priced at £34 for the wii and £39.99 for the 360.

Research has found that women want to tone their abs most and this is the main body part the game targets, and let me tell you now it works! I have played it for a while now and think its great, I am really seeing a difference in my abs and don't think I'll ever go back to boring routines.

With features including, 40 new songs and routines, 33 different dance styles, many different music styles and eight different party venues to name a few it has something for everyone wanting an exciting workout!

Also with kinect you have voice control for easy menu navigation which I found great, multiplayer support for two players, so Alesha can dance away aswell.
And another great feature is the Zumba class locator to find your nearest zumba class.

You can get your copy of Zumba core by visiting

All in I think its a great way to work out and I'lll be looking foward to the next release of Zumba!  


14. Mothercare - Little Bird
I received a Cot Mobile & a pair of Jersey Rainbow Pyjama's to review from the newly launched collection from Jool Oliver called 'Little Bird'. The collection is exclusive and unique to Mothercare and features a mix of high quality , affordable pieces with a timeless look and feel that reflects Jools love of nostalgic yet modern collectables for children from birth to 5 years, the perfect gift for any child this Christmas.

The picture doesn't do the cot mobile justice, it's such a beautiful cot mobile made from natural cotton and wood, it doesn't look cheap and tacky like some plastic cot mobiles.  

Jool said "I love this mobile it is perfect for a baby shower gift, just a special little gift to brighten up any nursery". 

This cot mobile is priced at £20.00 can be found by visiting Jools Oliver Little Bird Collection on the Mothercare website here
I kindly asked for size 3-6 months in these lovely looking Jersey Rainbow Pyjamas for Alana as Alesha has a few pairs of Pyjamas.

The bright colours of the rainbow attracted me to these, not only do they look cute on Alana but Alesha loves too point and the different colours, so thumbs up from the girls aswel!

I have washed these twice already on a 40 degrees cotton wash and the colour never faded nor did they pyjamas loose shape, so therefore these also get a thumbs up from me.

These are available from newborn right up to 3-4years and priced between £12.00 - £14.00, which I think is quite reasonable.

15. My 1st Years
I received a lovely personalised Christmas bauble for review from the large range of baubles over on .
After oooing and awwing over them all I finally choose the Rooftop Santa bauble which is priced at £12.00 and that includes a FREE luxury giftbox.
The bauble arrived very well wrapped and as stated on the website it came in a lovely pink box tied with a pretty ribbon. Needless to say the bauble looked lovely and even better on our tree!
I asked for 'Merry Christmas Alesha & Alana 2012' to be printed on the back of the bauble, and they got it spot on, no spelling mistakes and the colour remained even after a good rub with a cloth.
This will now become a treasured babuble in our household which I will pass down to the girls for their three when the get older.
'At at heart of the range remain the essentials, outfits for newborn babies and the products that built the brand, starting with categories - My 1st Shoe, My 1st Outfit, My 1st Bear, & My 1st Accessory.'
Why not pop on over to My 1st Years website to find a special Christmas present for your loved one this year.
