Reroute Santa to make sure he finds you this Christmas!

This is a collaborative post. Do your children worry whether Santa will find them if they’re not at home over Christmas?

Christmas shopping at Grand Central Birmingham

While we were there, I thought I’d take the opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done in the fabulous Grand Central shopping centre.

A Meaningful Christmas Gift Guide And Giveaway

I’m not very good at Christmas. In fact, my friend Stevie insists on calling me the Grinch. It’s not that I’m grumpy (I am a bit). It’s more that I would prefer Christmas to be more meaningful, less commercial and quite frankly, shorter. When all the shops put their decorations up in September, it doesn’t get me in the festive spirit. It just annoys me. So when Christmas does arrive, I tend to look for meaningful gifts that are beneficial to someone. Whether that be an educational toy, a charitable donation or an experience. So here is my meaningful Christmas gift list…
