VW Campervan themed Wedding stationery

A Campervan themed wedding is a wonderfully fun theme to choose for your wedding day, it might be part of a full on Festival themed wedding or you are just keeping it a bit more simple and having a campervan as your wedding car for the big day.

Either way you want to set the scene for the theme of your wedding day and you can do this to begin with with some Campervan Save the date fridge magnets to let you guests know of your special day. You want to make sure that your guests can make your wedding day (well hopefully you do) and so letting them know as soon as you can of the chosen wedding day will give them chance to pencil it into their diary. To do this you can send them a "Campervan Save The Date fridge magnet" that has your names and the date of your wedding fully colour printed onto wood with the outline of the VW Campervan cut out around it. To match up even more we can change the main colour of the campervan to match up with your colour scheme or that of the Campervan you might even be using as your wedding car.

Next up and a bit later on after the save the dates is when you need to sort you invites, again we have come up with some Campervan wedding invitations, full colour printed direct onto wood invites that give that extra wow factor as they are a bit different than the usual paper/card invitations most people send.

What to put in a Christmas Eve Box

A Christmas Eve Box is a lovely way to bring a little bit of extra magic to Christmas and will be sure to make the night before Christmas that extra bit special and exciting.

If you've already got a Christmas Eve Box, are planning on making one or are yet to buy one then you still need to figure out what to put in a Christmas Eve Box, there are a few simple suggestions that need not break the bank but all add up to help bring that extra bit of magic to Christmas Eve.

Pyjamas:
A new set of nightwear or PJs are great. It's so nice getting into a new pair of Pyjamas so a new set for Christmas Eve are just the ticket. You can even choose festive ones if you want or you can go for more "all year round" designs if you don't want to be seeing reindeer and Father Christmas each morning in March!
The great thing with new PJs is that you can then have people snuggle into them before they get to tuck into the other treats in the box.

Classic Christmas Film:
There are loads of Christmas films to choose from including loads of classics that will set the Christmas mood. A lovely way to spend the afternoon or evening just before bed is to settle down as a family and watch a festive movie.

Hot Chocolate:
A nice warm cup of hot chocolate is a real treat (maybe some marshmallows and a bit of cream on top too to make it extra special?), bring out the festive mugs too.

Father Christmas magic key:
If you live in a house without a chimney then how will Father Christmas be able to get in. Get a Santa's Magic Key that can be hung outside so that the man in the red coat can easily get into your house on Christmas night.

Chocolate Coins:
Chocolate coins are a festive tradition now (despite Cadbury's no longer making them). Stick a few coins or a little net of Chocolate coins in to eat, they will compliment the hot chocolate and film perfectly.

Cuddly Toy:
A little Christmas teddy can easily fit in, only a small one o it will fit into the box and doesn't need to break the bank. Just a nice thing for any children to take to bed with them on Christmas Eve to help them get to sleep before Father Christmas comes.

Reindeer Food:
Some magical reindeer food that you can put out so that the reindeer can find you. You can make this yourself for very little with some porridge oaks and bit of glitter and seal it up in a little bag and just then need to scatter it outside. A little exciting task to do before bed time along with putting out a mince pie and a drink for Father Christmas on a Santa's snack plate.

Christmas Book:
Read a nice Christmas Story, there are plenty of classics, traditional or even some more modern stories depending on what you are after. You can also choose one as to what the real meaning of Christmas is all about.

Christmas Activity Pack:
A small activity pack is a great idea if you want your children to have something to do if you have a few last minute Christmas jobs of your own to get done, settle them down with an activity pack that has Christmas pictures to colour in and other activities such as word search that could help occupy some time and be fun.

First Christmas Decorations & Baubles

There are a few different circumstances where you might want to celebrate a "First Christmas" and mark the special occasion, it could be the first Christmas since a baby has been born or it could be the first married Christmas of a couple that has happened this year.
Whatever the occasion you may find that one of our range of First Christmas decorations could be what you are after, they are in-expensive but pack a real punch in terms of sentimentality and are a certain keepsake for years to come.

In terms of baby's then there are 2 real occasions you may be after, it could be that your baby is not yet born and is still a bump, in which case the "Bump's First Christmas" bauble shows that your baby is there still growing and with you, it also adds to the already growing excitement that they will be with you in person for next Christmas too which is just a lovely thought.

Any baby's who are going to be having their first time with Father Christmas coming to visit also is a very special occasion, the Personalised First Christmas heart shape decoration not only has the baby's name but also the year engraved onto it too.

Newly married couples are also excited about spending their first Christmas as a husband and wife team and so the various "1st Christmas as Mr & Mrs" baubles are perfect. There are a few different versions to choose from, you can choose it to say "Your" if it is a gift you are giving them, it can start with "Our" if you are buying it yourself or you can leave out either of those prefixes and just have the personalised "1st Christmas as Mr & Mrs" bauble which has their name and the year engraved onto it.

Make sure everyone knows whose keys are whose

Many homes have a drawer with all the families keys get put and when you open the draw to get your set out you have to fish through them all to figure out which is your set of keys.

One way to alleviate this problem is to make sure every set of keys is on its own keyring, so if you have a family you could all have your own set of keys on a keyrings wit your own initial on. Our wooden engraved Initial keyrings are perfect for this, 2.5cm round keyring fobs with a metal split ring to attach your keys to, nice and simple yet a great time saver.

The initial keyrings are also good if you have lots of sets of keys for different purposes, for instance you may have a Shed key, a Front door key, Car key, Gate key, you could easily assign each key with it's own relevant initial letter keyring, so a letter S for the Shed key, a letter G for the Gate key, an F for the front door key etc. You will know your reference for each but it would take anyone else some time to decipher too which is no bad thing for security reasons.

Gift ideas for a pregnant Mum to be

Being pregnant over Christmas is a special time as you know that next Christmas things will be very different in your household. Pregnant Mum's (& Dad's) will no doubt be thinking ahead about what will be different (especially if it's waiting for the arrival of your first baby).

Although your baby is not there with you properly but your baby is there growing inside pregnant mum's tummies so it is actually still with you over Christmas and so many people still like to mark the special occasion of your Bump's 1st Christmas. There is not loads you can do but there are some special token things, one of which is marking your Bump being with you over Christmas. We make a personalised Bump's First Christmas decoration which is personalised with the current year on it. This will make a lovely lasting keepsake after Christmas and you can even bring it out each Christmas to put on your Christmas tree to remember how special the time was and that you were thinking about the joy your baby would bring when they arrive.

Other gifts that can be given tot he mum to be are perhaps a token gift "from" your baby, it doesn't have to be anything over the top but again just a token gift that Mum will cherish, if mum is into charm bracelets then maybe just a small charm from the baby. You could also go down the indulgent route from a gift from the baby, does Mum have a current pregnancy craving, maybe there is a certain type of chocolate that she is craving and you could wrap that up with a Happy Christmas note from the baby too.

Just keep it thoughtful and mum to be will love it!

Why are Horseshoes Lucky at Weddings

One of the traditional gifts given at weddings is the Lucky Horseshoe and this dates back many many years with the actual reason possibly down to a number of different superstitions or reasons depending on what you want to believe.

Why are horseshoes lucky at weddings?In pre-Christian times the horseshoe was said to represent a crescent moon which meant it was a potent fertility charm. The Romans  believed the "U" shape offered protection from evil and others believe that the "U shape of the horseshoe meant it could retain good luck and that it could retain good luck forever if the horseshoe is kept hung up in the "U" shape rather than turned upside down where the good luck of the marriage might be able to fall out.

Whatever the real reason the giving of a wedding horseshoe it is still a lovely traditional gift that any new bride is likely to appreciate on her wedding day.

Modern times mean that there is a huge range of wedding horseshoes that are available to buy and it is a product line that we ourselves make with our personalised wedding horseshoes that are engraved and cut out of wood.

Baby's First Christmas - Make it one to remember

The year a new baby arrived in the family is an exciting time, there are so many "firsts" to come and each one is very special in their own way as your baby develops and learns.

Other than all the amazing firsts such as first smile and first crawl or steps which are landmark days you like to cherish and remember there are other special baby's firsts that pop up in the year and Baby's First Christmas is one of them.

Your baby probably won't really know what is going on and they won't really get the excitement of unwrapping presents yet but it is still a very special occasion as it will be your Baby's 1st Christmas and one that you will always remember fondly.

Your little bundle of joy is likely to be getting spoilt by all your family and friends with nice gifts of toys and clothes but it is also nice to have something that you can look back on as a reminder of this special Christmas day.

Baby's First ChristmasOne popular gift that we make is our personalised Baby's First Christmas baubles that can hang on your Christmas tree. The decoration is personalised with your baby's name and the current year and is engraved into a wooden bauble so it will be a lasting keepsake from this first Christmas you have shared together. Many people like to pull out the Baby's First Christmas tree decoration each year to hang back on the tree too and as your child grows and gets older you will always be reminded back to that very special first one and how special they still are to you now.
