5 Unique Gift Ideas for Friends Who Are Expecting

So your friend has told you that she is expecting, congratulations! 
Whether you have been pregnant, once, twice or half a dozen times you will know that planning for the arrival of little ones is no mean feat. 
Deciding what to buy our pregnant friends can also be a little tricky.

So with that in mind we have come up with a list of five completely original presents, that pregnant women actually want, to ensure your pressie is both practical and well thought out.

A Prenatal Massage

We’ve all been there. 
The aches and pains and general discomfort that pregnancy can bring. So why not treat your friend to a soothing and relaxing prenatal massage
Have a look into the local spas and beauty salons that offer prenatal massages and see what packages and deals they have available. 
This is a particularly great idea for anyone that is feeling a little overwhelmed and is going through the mill, physically. 
If that sounds like your pal then this
could be the perfect pressie.

Moses Basket

Not only are moses baskets a completely gorgeous accessory to any baby room but they are also really practical for ferrying baby around the house. 
If you would like to get your friend a little moses basket but are not quite sure where to look, check out a site like https://www.for-your-little-one.co.uk/furniture/moses-baskets
They are really charming to look at, are not as pricey as you may think and are a really unique gift for a pregnant friend, that they would probably never expect to receive, so it could be a winning idea.

Organic Beauty Kits

As pregnant women and mummies need to be extra careful with the products that they use and the products that they put on their skin, why not think about getting your friend a lovely little organic beauty kit. 
There are now lots of companies that specialise in lovely skin care items that are safe for pregnant women so if you think this could be the perfect gift for your friend, check out this site, reviewing ten of the best organic beauty kits on the market, www.eluxemagazine.com

Foot Massager

Again this one is all about mum. 
Treating your friend to a lovely home, foot massager could be just what your friend needs to take the weight off and spend a little time indulging herself and relaxing before and after the little ones arrival.

Baby Record Book

Baby books are a super thoughtful present for mums to be as they tend to be the sort of items that pregnant women rarely think of buying for themselves. 
Baby record books are such a charming gift idea as they will enable your friend to be able to record all her baby precious first moments. 
From first steps, first smile, first tooth to fall out all the way to the first lock of hair to be cut. Baby record books are a fantastic way of capturing all the lovely adventures mums to be are about to experience as a parent and will be able to always look back on with this book.

Num Noms Series 4 // Review.

To celebrate the new release of Num Noms series 4 we were sent...

The brand new Num Noms magazine,
Sweet Sampler Lunch box,
and the
Frozen yogurt starter pack.



 Ru adores Num Noms so was over the moon to see all the new ones. 
He was also pretty taken with the magazine and couldn't wait to get the toy camera out of the packaging.

The magazine was packed full of goodies and had lots of activities to do inside.
I'm sure this will be a magazine that Ru will want to buy again and again. 
 After Ru had finished looking at the mag and playing with the camera he moved on to the Frozen Yogurt Starter Pack RRP £11.95.

In the pack was -
Mango Sherbet,
Sprinkles Froyo,
Razzy Froyo 
and 
Orange Drop Gloss-up.
Along with a tray and spoon.







Ru's favourite was Razzy Froyo.



He then moved on to opening up the Sweet Sampler Lunch Box   RRP £17.99.

Inside he got -
Orange Crunch,
Violet Contessa,
Madelyn Macaron,
Tia Tea-Time,
Sugar Créme,
Nilla Shake,
Berries N Créme,
Hottie Chocolate,
Confetti Cookie,
and 
Mint Swirl Gloss-up,
Lemon Drop Gloss-up







Inside the Lunch box you also receive a mystery box ... inside Ru's it was 
Lemons Pink-Fill.
 




Ru was pretty impressed with his brand new collection of Num Noms.




After he had finished unboxing them all, he sat in the lounge for a while playing with them, lining them up and then putting them in his play kitchen then feeding them to me and Jon.
He also enjoyed putting on the lipgloss.

You can find Num Noms series 4 in all good toy shops!

Four Boys In The Wood


We got out the house today by taking the boys off to Dersingham woods.
We love it there, it's become our favourite place to walk the dog and we drive through it twice a week taking Ru to nursery.

We haven't done much this week due to some health issues that I'm trying to deal with, so it was nice to get some fresh air and see they boys running and jumping about in nature.


When we said we're off to the woods today, their first question was.... can we climb trees?
For boys who have never really show much interest in climbing trees it was a bit of a oh where did that come from moment but we said of course!

As soon as they were out the van they went off on a hunt to find the perfect tree to climb.
Noah thought he was doing really well until he turned around and saw that Alex was further up than him.


Even Ru had a go.



After they had finished climbing trees we went off to find the local cows.
They weren't in their usual spot, so it took a little time.
We eventually found them at the bottom of the hill.

They were all pretty desperate to get as close as possible, but within getting a few feet away they decided that was far too close and they ran back up the steps to Daddy.



We did a little bit of fairy hunting and the boys all managed to find at least ten little mushrooms each, unfortunately no fairies this time.
