Being big fans of Red Letter Days we eagerly await the time when we can enjoy their exciting experiences again. Hopefully before Christmas and certainly again in the new year. Until then why not surprise someone with one of their newly launched gift hampers. This is the Snowy Delights Gift Basket which is packed full of festive treats.

BRITISH MADE PJS FROM PJ PAN
This year I discovered PJ Pans. Now as you might know if you are an avid reader Daddy Long Legs certainly lives up to his affectionate nickname. Hence making pyjamas shopping almost impossible. Until I found this British brand. I love that their high-end nightwear is made here in the UK and caters to tall people as well. When I surprised him with this stripy set his eyes lit up as with his 6″5 frame he’s never had a pair that actually fitted before.
They have designs for the whole family and you can see and feel the quality immediately. I’ve put a set on my Christmas wish list.

AMAZING SERUMS FROM ILODY
With all the stress of 2020 you might find that your skin needs extra care. As we head into winter I often feel mine needs more hydration to maintain its healthy glow. Earlier this year I discovered the amazing serums from Ilody. The exquisite yet potent potions are just the thing need to make you sparkle and ready for 2021. Hopefully, the year will bring many positive events and you or whoever you gift this to will look beautiful and glowing. Choose between Boosted Collagen Serum or the Hydrating Radiance Serum.

PHOTO LOCKET FROM LILY BLANCHE
There is something so precious about a photo locket and Lily Blanche has the most amazing collection. This feather locket is incredibly special to me as it has pictures of both boys and the golden feather represents the one we never got to meet after a miscarriage back in 2017 but who will always live on in our hearts. They are excellently made and you can have it engraved, too. I chose the boys names on the back. You simply upload your favourite photos directly on their website and the team at Lily Blanche takes care of the rest. It arrived beautifully packaged with a gorgeous gift box, too.
