The night before Christmas - Mustard's Christmas Wish

The night before Christmas – Mustard’s Christmas Wish

The story reimagines the classic ‘Twas the night before Christmas’ with Mustard, the lovable dachshund, embarking on a Christmas Eve adventure he’ll never forget. Mustard has cards to deliver before Christmas day, but with such little legs it seems a long way! Mustard bravely goes off to deliver his cards to all his friends.

Mustard deliving letters

This lovely rhyming tale of friendship and hope is a heart warming story. Mustard the sausage dog is an ambitious little underdog who transforms into a super sausage dog! The night before Christmas – Mustard’s Christmas Wish would be great for reading on Christmas eve snuggled up together. The girls loved this book as they think Mustard is really cute and cool too!

Holly's letter

We love books that rhyme and have lovely storylines and this book is definitely one we will be reading and enjoying again. Mustard delivers cards to all his friends on a cold Christmas eve.

Looking for Robins throughout the book, counting them as we went made reading The night before Christmas – Mustard’s Christmas Wish even more fun. Children love getting involved in reading and even little ones Izzy’s age (3) can enjoy counting the robins.

We have quite a selection of Christmas books we have discovered, old & new and as always enjoy sharing them with our readers. The night before Christmas – Mustard’s Christmas Wish is definitely a lovely festive book to read at Christmas and a perfect gift too.

She knows mummy usually gets her Christmas eve box & Santa brings her presents Christmas day so she was pleased to find she’d already made Santa’s nice list!

5 Christmas Gifts Under £5 – #SDFiverChallenge

I’ve been looking at 5 Christmas Gifts under £5 from Sports Direct and ordered some great gifts for the girls. It can be tough at Christmas affording presents for everyone. Sports Direct want to make it easier to find gifts that cost less but are still good quality so I’ve picked out 5 gifts under £5 to take a closer look at. I’ve already shared some fab gift guides to help my readers this Christmas, here’s some bargain gifts too!

5 Christmas Gifts Under £5

#SDFiverChallenge

Sports Direct have definitely made that easier this year with their fab range of gifts £5 and under. I had expected to struggle to find a gift I thought the girls would both enjoy & would last more than 2 minutes. Surprisingly I managed to find 5 Christmas gifts £5 and under for the #SDFiverChallenge that I know my girls would enjoy and seem pretty good value too!

5 Christmas Gifts Under £5

Amigami

Amigami Large Figure – £5

The Amigami Large Figure is suitable for 6+ and is a great find for Eva. These kinds of gifts are great for creative kids with up to 500+ combinations available. The kit comes with a plastic AmiGami figure, 25 AmiGami paper parts, 45 stickers, 3 marker pens & 7 pins and caps. This seems fairly reasonable for £5 and will no doubt keep Eva busy for hours! She loves any chance to get creative & will love that her figure is pink.

 

Disney Princess 3 pack Wooden Puzzles & Storage box

Disney Princess Three Pack Wood Puzzles – £5

Wooden puzzles make great gifts and I found this Disney Three Pack of  24 piece wooden puzzles suitable for 3+ for just £5. The puzzles also come with a wooden box container to store them in too, bonus! With Izzy’s 3 favourite princesses, Cinderella, Belle & Rapunzel she is bound to love them. The quality of the wood is pretty good too so I can see the puzzles lasting a while!

Disney Princess Pop Up Game

 

Disney Princess Pop Up Game – £4.99

I remember playing pop up games as a child and really enjoying them & knew the girls would love this Disney Princess Pop Up Game. A great 2-4 player game for 4+ everyone can play together is always a great gift at Christmas. This Disney Princess Pop Up game seems fairly sturdy and I can see us playing regularly.

 

Monkey Tree Game

Monkey Tree Game – £4

Monkey Tree is another game I remember playing as a child. Carefully remove sticks and hope you don’t make the monkeys tumble! This is another 2-4 player game perfect for kids and seems just as good as any other version I’ve come across. Definitely a bargain at £4.

 

Crayola Disney Princess 2 colouring pages

Crayola Giant Princess Colouring Pages – £3

I thought these 20 Crayola Giant Disney Princess Colouring Pages were great for £3. The girls will love colouring them in & putting them up on their bedroom wall.

 

 

Overall I think Sports Direct has done pretty well with their Christmas gifts for £5 (and under!) and will probably be having another look to see what else I can put away for Christmas haha! Whilst I only really have a few people I buy gifts for the range of gifts at Sports Direct is great. There is something there for everyone!
