Gift Guides 2017 - children


Welcome to the next Gift Guide. Today we are covering children from age 3 to 9. {smaller children ideas you can find here}

Boys and girls, from bike to kitchen, from arty to beauty.

How are you getting along with the gift shopping? I have to pick up some parcels later on but I have the feeling that we are pretty covered. Oh… I like to be done a little¬† early so no rushing and emergency shopping.


Let’s see, some pretty good ideas for children:

Stocking Fillers for the whole family

Yay, I made it. The first gift guide is out and more will follow over the next days…
Starting with Stocking Fillers or good little ideas for Advent Calendars {find the best ones here in case you still need to get one}.

At the end of the post you can find a list of all Gift Guides that will be published for this year and I will update the links once they go live.
You can see I added a few categories, by request, and keep every guide to a crisp 10 ideas max. Less or more, isn’t…

It is, really, a Family Gift Guide. The kids of course that I split in small, children and then teens. But our partners should not be forgotten, and the grand parents, the teachers {always tricky} and what about our friends?

I hope you will find these helpful and inspiring! Merry Merry and some lovely festive weeks until Christmas!

Please find now my Gift Guide for Stocking Fillers for the whole family:

Lovely Paper by Djeco

Lovely Paper by Djeco
The creative team of the Djeco brand has launched a new line: Lovely Paper. And we were so lucky to be able to test and try some of those products here at home.

I have a very soft spot for anything paper. Books, magazines, postcards and of course craft supplies. This is perfect. Djeco is a brand that I always check when I need a gift, adding the Paper Collection is such a great extension because finding gifts for teens is not always easy but they {usually} all love crafting.

Everything is beautifully illustrated – of course- and the new collection includes notebooks, gums, pencil cases, masking tape, diaries, pens and colored pencils and also these cool glossy stickers that I still know from my own childhood. The ones we collected, got albums and carefully sticked them in those. And then showed them to our friends. Do you remember these?

This beautiful Djeco stationery range makes every kid’s heart beat faster.

There are also glitter and metallic markers,  secret notebooks and mini stamps sets.

5 inspiring playrooms

Whenever I share a picture of our playroom on Instagram {here or here for example} the feedback is always really good, interested and often I get lots of questions.

So I thought it is time to share a little more about playrooms. Ours came together by accident. More or less. It started to be a bedroom when we moved in. But the kids preferred to sleep with a sibling {or us} and the bed in there stayed empty. After a while we moved it and VOILA – the playroom was born.

It is definitely one of the most used rooms {together with the kitchen} in our house however I learned and saw at friends houses – is the playroom not close to where everything happens and where you are, it is not used that much. Ours is connected to the kitchen and it is perfect.

How you decorate and fill your playroom is of course up to you. A reading nook or even a small sofa or a good armchair are perfect for quieter moments. A table is a must for jigsaws, board games and and and…

We have a very long hallway next to the playroom and the table is there most of the times {we just moved it in the playroom actually, I like to change and try new set ups}.

Online you can find lots of inspiration and objects on Flinders for example – little furniture and great decor articles to personalize your space.

Here are 5 inspiring playrooms that I would like to share with you and to give you some ideas:
