Treats For us Girls – By Way of a Quest for a Nice Kids Christmas Jumper

My friend Jody and I have been worshipping these shoes for weeks. They are too pretty for words also come in black with silver sequins and diamonds. And they are flat (I do not do a heel, far too impractical for dancing – or walking for that matter)
Jewelled Pumps, were £129 – discounted until Sunday

In line with my plan to have the least stressful Christmas ever, I actually started Christmas shopping on Saturday. I am about halfway there and plan to have it all wrapped up – literally – by December 1st. So uncharacteristically organised!

Christmas jumpers are on the list for the boys – Little can inherit Big’s from the year before last, but Big needs a new one. We take a photo of them in front of the tree each Christmas to send out to our families, who are spread around the world. They’re not ‘Christmas jumpers’ Christmas jumpers though – no reindeer/snowmen or anything. They’re more Scandi fairisle types, so that they can be worn throughout winter, not just for Christmas.

I think this is the one for this Christmas!
Chunky Jumper, was £30-£35, discounted until Sunday

My quest for a good one that will be warm and long-lasting (you know how I feel about inherited clothing – although all wool must now live in vacuumed lavender-stuffed bags, thank you moths) lead me back to Boden and the above ‘Chunky Jumper‘ which Big would really suit. I know I have written about the benefits of buying Boden before, so I won’t go into it here.

I am not usually a Boden buyer for myself, but because of the aforementioned December 1st deadline, I did sneak a peek at the Christmas shop for possible presents, and found some things I would not only wear, but would really love (if I could afford to buy anything for myself right now, which I can’t – again, thank you moths).

Check out this lot and let your other halves or mothers (or children!) treat you for Christmas…
