I love chocolate and I also love wine, I didn’t realise that wine was a good accompaniment for chocolate until GiftsOnline4U sent me this thorough infographic. From Asti to Port there is a chocolate Easter egg for each. You can plan your Easter meal dessert appropriately, according to your favourite chocolate.
If you are thinking of getting a gift for a friend who’s a new mother, then you will understand what types of things they will need. In those early days, new parents want to have gifts that will be good for their baby, or useful for them. From toys to baby technology, there are many gift ideas that you can give them that will be of huge benefit to them. Here are some of the best gifts you can get for the new mother.
It is natural that parents will want to treat their children. If your little ones are the light of your life, of course you are going to enjoy watching their faces light up as they unbox a thoughtful gift. However, over the years, it can become harder and harder to find new and exciting presents. If you are really struggling with this task, look for inspiration. Below are six fabulous gift ideas for your children.
I received the most beautiful candle holders from Silver Celebrations for Isla’s birthday cake. They are silver plated and just look absolutely stunning, in the box and on the cake. I cannot wait to use them again, any excuse to bake a cake. The Princess cake candle holders are simply the prettiest things I have seen on top of a cake.
Nappy cakes are by far one of the best gifts to take along to any baby shower. You can rest assured that this is a gift that is going to get loads of use from new Mum and, of course, new baby. I used to make these and I loved it, being creative with baby toys and essentials. The image above is one I made for my daughter Isla Rae, I loved making it as it felt extra special. If you’ve not heard of a nappy cake before, these cakes are made out of nappies that are put together to create several tiers. The tiers are then stacked to look like a cake and then decorated with a range of other items such as ribbons to make them look beautiful. Not only are these great gifts, they also make lovely centrepieces at a baby shower. You can use it as the centrepiece and then send it home with Mum after the shower.
