What we got Freya for her birthday

Just over 2 years ago, we became parents for the first time. Yesterday we celebrated Freya’s second birthday with family and friends and had an incredible day.

I know I’m always curious about what others are buying there little ones for birthday/Christmases etc as it usually gives me inspiration so I wanted to share what we gave Freya for her birthday this year.

Freya’s main present we purchased from Hobbycraft and it is a 3-in-1 Easel and accessory set.

Freya has loved this present and has been using it loads already. It’s very light and easy to move so we have already done some painting outside in the sunshine to avoid getting paint on the carpets. The accessory kit is fab and comes with a sheet and painting overall as well as paints, brushes and other art supplies.

Next up we purchased a Princess Anna dress up costume that I managed to get from Tu during their 25% off event. She wore this not long after getting it and kept saying she wanted to keep it on. Freya’s uncle has also purchased a couple of princess dresses for her so that we can turn a corner of her room into a dress up area.

She wasn’t in pain, just trying to say Cheese!

Next up we gave Freya a Peppa Pig Bamboo dinner set and apron that was kindly gifted to us from Gift Giving All Wrapped Up. Freya has loved using this every day since and now asks for the Peppa Pig plate and cup when having meals/snacks.

Lastly we gave Freya a ride on electric Ferrari car. This was actually something I won in a competition while I was pregnant so we didn’t actually purchase it. We knew at the time we would love to give our future child something like this but wouldn’t be able to spend that kind of money. We held onto it and kept it boxed up until Freya’s birthday when we got it out for her. Needless to say she loves it and all her friends had a go in it at the party yesterday as well.

Overall we spent around £40 on her birthday presents and she’s loved them all. I don’t want to spoil her for birthday’s/Christmases and she always is lucky with gifts from others anyway. My plan for Christmas this year is to purchase 1 main present then a few smaller things and am already keeping an eye out for sales/events to get the best deals.

Tu at Sainsbury’s Picks

I’m a big fan of supermarket clothing nowadays especially when it comes to shopping for Freya. They always have a good choice when it comes to baby clothing, and given they are in the clothing for such a short amount of time in the early days, it’s not to heavy on the bank balance either.

I thought I’d share one of my favourite supermarket ranges which is Tu @ Sainbury’s and pick out some of my current favourites. I’ve always shopped here for Freya and love their clothing for myself as well so I’m a shopper for life I think.

A Tu Clothing Baby Splurge

It’s not a lie that when it comes to baby clothes, I have a bit of a shopping addiction; great for Freya but not so great for the bank balance of someone on maternity leave!

When it comes to shopping for her, I try to think practically now she is trying to move about more but I can’t help myself when it comes to cute outfits and shopping for girls is definitely fun. I recently went to Tu at Sainsburys and picked up a few bits in 9-12 months upwards as she has so much already for 6-9 months, but I’m slowly starting to fill that size as all the shops are having sales at the moment. Here are the items I picked up for her.

I fell in love with the print on this top and leggings set immediately and bought them in 9-12 months.
