The Last-minute Gift Giver

Hello to my lovely readers and my apologies for not writing a post for a bit. Trying to balance working full-time/commuting 2 hours a day/being a mum/doing housework/writing a blog and setting up a business is definitely a challenge and I’m still getting used to using my time effectively.

A Gift from the Heart

For me, my other half is a big watch fan and the idea of getting him something personalised on an item he would wear day-to-day sounds fantastic. That’s why Personalised Watches were one of the first things I started looking at when I began my hunt for the perfect 1st fathers day present.

First up on the brand list is L’Occitane and some excellent Christmas presents for her.
