Christmas Guide 2018 - Pre Christmas

Before you even get to Christmas presents you need to think of all the others things that come before and after the big day itself. This guide covers advent calendars, cards, gift wrap and decorations, everything in between you will find here!
Now I'm on slimming world and I don't want to waste too many of my syn allowance having chocolate from an advent calendar. When I saw Beanies were doing a coffee advent calendar I HAD to go and buy one! The Beanies advent calendar retails at £20 and is limited edition, so when its gone it gone. Day one you get 2 stick packs of flavoured coffee and a travel mug, every day after you get 2 stick packs of coffee and on Christmas eve you get a full-size jar of the Beanies coffee! 
Another Christmas essential is Christmas cards, we have a LARGE family so we need a lot of cards. Aunts, Uncles, Sister, Mother! You name it we need it! The team over at Hallmark have sent us a lovely selection of their Christmas card range available this year. I LOVE the Elf cards, its one of our favourite Christmas films. They have cards for the whole family and some lovely boxed cards to send to your friends and neighbours. You can find them all on the Hallmark website.
Now Miss S isn't a lover of chocolate at all, so this Haribo advent calendar is an ideal option for her! The Haribo advent calendar offers a merry mix of themed mini bags alongside Haribo Tropifrutti, Goldbears and MAOAM Pinballs. Perfect for those who prefer a twist on the traditional chocolate advent calendar, each window contains a tasty treat which will ensure that the festive celebrations start early. I love the selection of Haribo inside and there are a few she hasn't tried too. This is available from some high street stores and supermarkets priced at £5
A must-have for stationery and Smiggle lovers everywhere, the sought after Smiggle advent calendar. You get the added bonus of winning a £500 shopping spree with this calendar, just check your special envelope out and see if you're a winner. Behind each door is a fab Smiggle item, you will have a fantastic collection by the time you get to Christmas day. Available from the Smiggle store and online priced at £25.
One for the football lovers out there is the Match Attax advent calendar from topps, rrp £20. With 24 doors there is a packet of Match Attax football trading cards behind each door. You are guaranteed a superstar limited edition player on one of the packs. Plus with 24 packs to open your probably going to get some shineys to!
Aldi has a new range of Christmas crafts available that are perfect for getting into the festive mood. We all love a good special buy from those middle aisles. The mega craft tub has enough crafting stuff to make some festive baubles and a tinsel wreath, total bargain for £3.99. The learn to knit sew gift box would make a lovely Christmas gift at £8.99. If you are looking for someyhing to keep the kids busy in the weekends running up to Chriasmas then you can pick up one of the craft kits for £2.99. Avaialble as always while stocks last.
