Baby Blooms Skincare Gifts Review

Baby Blooms is a brand that I have come across before when I had a baby shower thrown for me when I was pregnant with Archie I was given a gorgeous bouquet of flowers that was made up of bibs and baby grows and two cupcakes that were baby vests. The gifts are so unique and original and look almost to good to use! They make the most gorgeous gifts; hampers, bouquets, nappy cakes, toys and balloons and so much more. It is literally your one stop shop for new baby and new Mum gifts.

When I was recently contacted by them to review one of their gorgeous skincare sets and it came in the most amazing gift box that has been designed and illustrated by Amanda Bradley. The boxes are great to keep your baby memories inside after you have finished using it. Inside my box was the most gorgeous tissue paper wrapped around a organza gift bag that had potpourri attached which made the box smell amazing and inside the bag was a soothing body lotion, replenishing hand cream, rejuvenating facial moisturiser, lip rescue balm and a baby care cream. They all come in gorgeous pots and bottles which are the perfect size to put into your hospital bag or changing bag. Two products I am so pleased I packed into my hospital bag was lip balm and hand cream and used tons of it! They are defiantly a must if you are packing your hospital bag.


This set would make a fantastic baby shower gift or new Mum gift so amongst everything baby Mum can still look and feel great too. All of the products in the Baby Blooms skincare range are handmade and made from natural ingredients and are produced here in the UK.


The replenishing hand cream smells amazing with a refreshing lemongrass scent and contains jojoba which leaves you hands smelling amazing and super soft and moisturised. The hand cream is really light and doesn’t leave your hands feeling tacky afterwards.


The soothing body lotion leaves your skin feeling really soft. After being pregnant for 9 months I have continued to moisturise my skin since having Archie. When I was pregnant I moisturised morning and evening as my skin felt tight and itchy and I wanted to prevent stretch marks. Afterwards I used lots of different body lotions and the Baby Blooms one is by for the most moisturising and the calendula and primrose leave your body smelling amazing.


In the three pots is the lip rescue, baby care cream and the rejuvenating facial moisturiser. They are all 20ml which like I said before are the perfect size for your hospital, changing or handbag. The lip balm leaves your lips feeling soft and nourished and after having a baby your lips can feel so dry so this lip rescue is exactly what you need. Again with the facial moisturiser it is rich and leaves your skin feeling soft and replenished. The baby care cream is fantastic for healing nappy rash, baby eczema and psoriasis. I have also used it on my hands as I get eczema on them now and again and it has helped soothe and repair my skin too.

Baby Blooms make the most fantastic award winning gifts and you can see their full range HERE. I also love their announcement balloons which inside the balloon is a teddy announcing that you are expecting or for a gender reveal. The gifts are truly amazing and you will not be disappointed.

Review: My1stYears.com Personalised My First Year Photo Frame

As you have seen on my blog before we are big fans of My1stYears.com and I have reviewed a few items for them before plus brought loads too. My1stYears.com is a lovely website that has gorgeous personalised baby gifts and really special gifts for christenings and special occasions. There is also currently a huge sale running across loads of toys and gifts on their site! So don’t miss it.



When I was asked to choose something to review I wanted to find a special keepsake for Archie, so when I came across the personalised my first year frame I knew it was perfect. The frame itself is made from wood and glass and opens up like a book with spaces for smaller photos for 12 months worth of photos, then a large frame for a photo of your little ones first birthday picture. You can personalise it too and I had ‘Archie’ written on the bottom.




The months have flown by since Archie was born and it is nice to look at each photo that was taken every month to see how much he has changed already in this short period of time, its amazing!




The my first year frame would make a gorgeous new baby or baby shower present and as the frame is cream it is a perfect unisex colour. The frame is a great price for a personalised gift at only £25.00 and it comes in a My1stYears gorgeous green gift box with a white ribbon.

For a special unique gift take a look at the My1stYears website for a huge range of clothes, toys, gifts and more.

Tiny Treasures Review

Tiny Treasures make beautiful bespoke keepsake framed hand and feet impressions wooden letters and gorgeous plaques and signs hand crafted/ hand painted to how ever you choose. When I was given the chance to choose something to have at home I choose a plaque in neutral colours with Mummy, Daddy, Oscar written. When looking on the Tiny Treasures Facebook page I could see the quality of their work was amazing and when ours came that totally confirmed my initial thought. Our plaque is gorgeous, it’s fantastic quality and to have one made they are so reasonably priced.
Tiny Treasures also make gorgeous keepsake framed hand and feet impressions and you can add personalised items to the frames too. They make great keepsakes and look amazing hanging on a nursery wall. You literally tell them exactly what you want and everything is bespoke and made to order. Delivery is also really quick and when I was told our item had been despatched it arrived within two days.
Photo: What a great way to display babies first shoes prices start from €185.00 for framed impression home visits can be arranged so it's all done in the comfort of your own home.... ( call out /delivery charge may apply )

The plaques would also make great gifts. You can have family ones made for Christmas or Mr and Mrs letters for someone’s wedding day personalised with the date on them too. I think this would make a great feature to a top table and is something that can be kept on show forever. 
Ordering couldn’t be simpler! Check out Tiny Treasures Facebook page or email tiny_treasures.ie@hotmail.com

My 1st Years.com Personalised Wooden Abacus Review

This week I am lucky enough to be receiving two pretty green boxes from my1styears.com! So far one has arrived and Oscar immediately knew the contents were for him as he recognised the box from when we reviewed the personalised wooden dinosaur last year. He excitedly ripped open the tissue paper to find a beautiful personalised wooden abacus with brightly coloured pieces. I was really impressed, it looks great and would make a great gift that someone will treasure forever. Oscar is already on his Easter school holidays so the abacus allows us to practice his counting whilst having fun!

The personalised wooden abacus is only £18.99 and all orders come in their gorgeous gift boxes free of charge. It is really well made and sturdy for little hands and the personalisation is stamped in perfectly. The quality has always been great with anything I have ordered from My1stYears.com and I have always been really pleased. 

My1styears.com sells a huge range of personalised gifts. Their unique Christening gifts range is beautiful and you will find something truly special to give the baby being christened something that can be personalised and treasured forever at an amazing price. Here are my favourites:

My Cousin and his Wife Claire are having their first baby which is due this month. I have been looking to buy the baby something special so when I saw the personalised baby blankets range from My1stYears.com I knew exactly what I would be buying as soon as I saw them. I will be ordering one as the baby is born and we find out what it is!! (I’m betting on a Boy!)

The delivery is always quick so if your panicking that you only have a few days to get a gift you can always rely on My1stYears.com to bail you out!
