Christmas is such a magical time and for me the older my children get, the more important it becomes to keep that Christmas magic alive. From choosing the tree and the decorating of the house, writing our cards and choosing gifts, everything becomes that bit more magical under the twinkle of the fairy lights come December. The lovely people over at The Disney Store* wanted to help spread a little magic of their own and in celebration of their #giftmagic campaign this year, sent my youngest girls the most amazing gift boxes. It really was like Christmas had come early!
We are huge Disney fans and one of our favourite films of all time is The Aristocats. I have two little crazy cat ladies in the making here, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree – what can I say?! So you can imagine their faces when they opened up their boxes of goodies. Well, what am I saying, you can see their little faces! Now that really is #giftmagic
They each received a Marie onesie which is made from the softest fleece material I have ever felt and it even has cat ears and a bow on the hood. Ideal for getting cosy on these cold winter nights and they have already decided that these will be their Christmas Eve pyjamas! There were huge mugs for both of them too with Marie on one side and Berlioz on the other that are perfect for hot chocolate with all the trimmings. I know many families have a tradition of a Christmas Eve box of goodies so these would both be the perfect gifts to add.
There were all sorts of other goodies too including the cutest little Marie Ufufy soft toys that actually smell of apple blossom. We haven’t seen these before but no doubt we will go on to collect lots more of the Disney characters. At just £5 they would make lovely stocking fillers. There were Tsum Tsum lip balm sets and this gorgeous Mickey bauble with socks inside too. It wouldn’t be Christmas without new socks, would it? And these are particularly fancy with bright red bows on and of course the case itself can be popped on the Christmas tree as a decoration.
Christmas is so special and that is very much down to the giving not just the receiving of gifts. I love picking out presents that I know my children will love. We all know that there is a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes to help keep that Christmas magic alive and of course it is always worth it to see the smiles on their little faces. The Disney Store is wonderful whatever time of the year but it feels even more magical this Christmastime as they spread the #giftmagic to celebrate the joy of giving and receiving gifts.
My girls were over the moon with their special Christmas boxes and I must say a huge thank you to The Disney Store. There really is something for everyone whether you are looking for stocking fillers or decorations, snuggly new pyjamas or Christmas homeware. Oh and a little mouse told me that there are lots of special offers both online and in store right now so do take a look and maybe spread a little magic of your own this Christmas!
*We were very kindly sent these Christmas boxes as a gift from The Disney Store in return for this review but all opinions and hot chocolate mustaches are our own
