We Recommend - Wishlists

Sometimes thinking of 6 different gifts to recommend for your children to various family members requires too much brain capacity.

But if you get into the habit (which I haven't but hey maybe it will help you?) of writing in a notebook during the year when you see things you know the kids would like or when they talk about things they want then it makes it all so much easier.

I have done this this year with small thoughts for Christmas gifts or stocking contents and I have to say it means no last minute scramble I know exactly what will be going in each one.

and for me?

well I am a firm believer in book wishlists

that way people have lots of choice, they can feel confident I am getting something I want and also I get a surprise (which I am partial to)

easy huh?

are you a wishlist writer? I like the idea of compiling them during the year rather than the kids writing a massive 'I want' list, although I did find an adorable one somewhere the other day that Flip had done all by himself and forgotten to show us....

What's no. one on your list?

Love you more than a surprise gift under the tree xxx
