Next up is this cute long sleeved fox and birch tree top from new seller LogieBear Love. Featuring some cute little foxes, this top comes with longer cuffs that can be folded or unfolded to adjust the length so that it grows with your child. This one is sized 12-18 months and is priced at £17, but other sizes are available from her shop (price may differ due to size). These tops have an estimated dispatch date a week after the order is placed.

If you’re well into your present knitting and are looking for a new pattern, and a sock pattern at that, then check out this ‘Hold Me Close’ sock knitting sock pattern from Louise Victoria Designs. Launched last night, these fabulous socks are knitted using double knit yarn so work up quickly and are extra squishy. If you know somebody with high arches, these socks have been designed to offer extra grip and comfort. For £1.50 you will immediately be emailed a PDF file of the pattern that you can download onto your device. If you are logged into your Made By Mums account when you buy this pattern, a copy will also be placed into your download library.

I always think that fun and squishy socks make wonderful Christmas presents, so seeing them always puts me in a festive mood. Another thing that never fails to awaken my Christmas spirit is making decorations or cards, and this week Leas Cards & Gifts has added this pack of five colouring cards. Included in the pack for £5 are some colour pencils for a ready made activity pack that can keep little pickles quiet on a rainy afternoon.

Gnome and Pom Pom wreath

As well as decorating the front room with cards, we love decorations of all sorts and often make wreaths to hang from doors, in windows and, well, anywhere I can get away with it! If you’ve changed your colour scheme this year and are looking for a wreath with cute gnomes on it, then Too_crafty_gem can make you one of these gorgeous wreaths. Just pop your colour preferences in the personalisation box when ordering. Normally £18, these gnome and pompom wreaths are currently on sale at £16.20, so be quick if you’d like to take advantage!

Personalised Wooden Christmas Eve Box

My last highlight this week is this super Christmas Eve box by Krafty Crafts. Priced at £35, these handmade wooden boxes can be personalised with your child’s name in unpainted wood. The extra embellishments will be painted or glittered, but may differ to the ones in the pictures shown in the listing. The estimated dispatch time for these boxes is two weeks from the order date, but please take into account that some areas are already experiencing delays in their postal services. The box will arrive ready for you to fill with treats for Christmas Eve and can be used year after year.

That’s us for another week! Have a great one ahead – and thanks for reading 😊💗
