155 SLEEPS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
As of summer (July 22) there’s 155 sleeps until Christmas. Yes we’re talking Christmas now, yes July, yes – Christmas!
Even by my obsessive planning, now seems very early to be thinking about the festive season. But before you know it, the school holidays will be over and Harrods will be putting up baubles.
Perhaps it’s not such a bad thing though, I’ve just had a look at some of there recommendations by Hamleys and This Morning, as well as my own research and was surprised that some of these gifts are already out of stock. So now you know what to look out for, here’s what you can look forward to reading on Santa’s letters this year…
Lamaze Push Along Pup (From six months)
Do they know it’s Christmas time at all? Probably not! Still, this cute push-along pup is a snip for under £20.

Hands down, this is our FAVOURITE toy this Christmas. Silly, funny and something all the family can join in with. Better than egg on your face I suppose!

Peppa Pig seems to be a firm favourite with little ones, so this is sure to be a hit in any house with little people.
