Top 5 Christmas Gifts For Girls

It’s nearly that time of year! Time to get your Christmas Shopping List ready! This post is my personal recommendation and guideline for the perfect christmas gifts if you are looking for a great christmas gift for girls aged between 3 and 10.

As a mom of girls who are 6 and 4 years old I sometimes struggle to get the right gifts for them. Don’t get me wrong, if I were to let them loose in a toy store I’m sure they would find loads that they suddenly need or want, but the reality is that so much of it is either not worth the money, or simply too much money. All the toys for girls on this list are under R500.00 and has various options to suit most budgets.  Continue reading “Top 5 Christmas Gifts For Girls”

Gift Guide for my Kids

Warning: post contains swearing, sarcasm and real threats! 

As we approach the festive season I have a few conditions for Christmas gifts for the children to all my friends and family:

For the love of all that is sacred and holy in this world, please do not buy my girls another f*cking puzzle! They are incapable of tidying them up and I am quite frankly sick to death of doing it! 

I don’t care if it’s a Trolls puzzle signed in glitter by Poppy or by  “Justin Timberleg” himself – that’s what they call him! 

I don’t care if that puzzle has the power to turn my child into a genius overnight! 

Unless it has the power to turn them into an OCD cleaner, I don’t want you to give it to them! 

If you go against my wishes, rest assured that we will be having the mother of all braai’s (African barbecue) on Boxing Day, where the fire will be fed with the puzzles you bought them! 

Whilst I’m on the subject, also to go on the fire will be any gifts containing glitter, ones that make a noise, require intensive supervision by me or potentially discolour my furniture or car interior (paint, markers, glue etc)! 

Acceptable gifts: google play vouchers, Trolls/Barbie/Frozen/Lion Guard toys (except if they also fall in the aforementioned categories), clothing, swimming toys, dvds, sweets etc, even bats and balls will be allowed, but for the love of God, no puzzles or glitter!!!! 

Consider this advance warning – Mother!!! 

If you think I’m the grinch, or just a bitch, I really don’t care. As the only provider of grandchildren and nieces I suggest you all obey or their attendance at the next holiday (Easter/birthdays etc) will be cancelled! 

Love you all. Tra-la-la-la-la 😘🎄❤️🍷
