With Halloween over for another year my thoughts have turned to Christmas. It may seen a little early but we all know that us mums like to be organised and plan! Christmas is the biggest event of the year for our family and I find that a little planning goes a long way to ensure everything runs smoothly. With two young children I admit that Christmas is a lot about the presents. There are the Advent calendars, the ‘big’ Christmas presents and of course the stockings!
I’m excited to team up with Rex London who asked me to work with them on a Christmas Stocking Filler Challenge. Research recently revealed that the average cost of a single stocking is approximately £70. Rex London believes you can complete a stocking for a friend or family member for less than half that figure.
8 must-have stocking fillers for men
They offered to send me a £35 voucher and asked me to choose someone to buy for, finding them suitable gifts on the Rex London website. I love a challenge! I decided to pick for my husband as, I don’t know about you, but I find my husband pretty difficult to buy for. I then spent a fun evening browsing the Rex London website for items to fill his Christmas stocking.
Now not only is this a fun challenge but Rex London kindly offered to give the same stocking fillers to one lucky reader of the gingerbread house blog! Read on to find out what items I picked and for your chance to win the same.
So what did I choose?
Rex London have some brilliant designs and I found two that I knew my husband would like – World Map and The Departure Lounge. From these two designs I chose most of my items which I knew to be practical (just like my husband!). First I chose the World Map Design Lunch Bag, Money Minder Keyring and Rainbow Sticky Notes for him to use at work. Then I picked the Great Britain Air Freshener for him to use in his car.
I couldn’t resist the Departure Lounge Manicure Set for him to pack into his bag when he goes away for work. Finally I chose a few items for our home, including the World Map Scented Candle, Standing Brass Frame (which I’m going to add some photos of the children) and a cute Cactus Candle in Tin.
There were so many items I knew he would like but I tried to choose items I knew he would use. I found the website easy to use and was pretty spoilt for choice.
