Christmas Gift Guide

Putting up my Christmas tree last weekend, it became very quickly apparent that I need to get my Christmas shop on. The tree looked a little sad with not much underneath it, the lack of decorations also didn’t help (this is the first Christmas tree Charlie and I have ever had together and we have now promised to collect more throughout the year, 4 Christmas decoration just isn’t going to cut it).

Tegen’s daughter Bonnie was also pretty disappointed with her Christmas tree too, there were tears when she went down stairs the morning after she put it up to discover that Santa had not yet visited her house. We had to explain that she would have to wait a few more weeks!

So with this in mind, we decided it may be helpful for us to put together a Christmas gift guide for all family members.
