Self-heating eye masks .. where have you been all our lives?! And our other musings for this week!
- Oh WOW, we were recently introduced to the amazing world of Elfland. A beautifully touching story for children with some many extra touches to bring the magic to life. This is wellbeing for the body, mind and soul, wrapped up with North Pole wonder galore. Ticks ALL the boxes and then some! AND …. Jolly Festive Friends get 20% off The Lost Wish book, Elf Eyes self-heating eye masks & the Sleepy Elf bedtime bundle with code JOLLYFESTIVE.
- With the Royal Mail strike yesterday and more planned for November, the motto of this year is to shop early! Latest strike details here but it’s likely there will be extended disruption to the system beyond the strike days themselves (iNews are reporting up to 15 more potential strike days)
- Reverse advent calendars will sadly be more important than ever in the run up to Christmas this year as more families struggle to make ends meet. If you’re in a position to help others, do consider doing a reverse advent calendar (or two) with your household in the ‘ber months.
Reverse Advent Calendars
- Anyone else obsessing over M&S’s choc corn wreath?! Though we may have to create our own special Jolly Festive take on it …!
- These wire Christmas trees are just gorgeous. One of our favourite finds last year. And Hannah couldn’t resist ordering some more for 2022!
- Paper Dreams have released their Christmas decorations for 2022 and we are completely in love! How gorgeous would this honeycomb tree look as a centrepiece! Talk about merry and bright!!
- There’s a new favourite game at Jolly Festive HQ! The Fuzzies is jenga with a twist and we love it! Definitely one to add to the Christmas list – great family game or for kids from 6+. Jo is loving the undercover fine motor skill development too of course.
