Advent – Still not ready – Get inspired here

Are you ready for advent? In one week we’ll light the first candle and celebrate the first advent. I haven’t created this year’s advent wreath, but hopefully, I’ll get it done this weekend. I’ve been using one of my Kubus candleholder for the past couple of years, but I’m actually considering going more ‘natural’ this year. I’m very inspired by some of the pictures below. However, I also love using my son’s Schleich animals, to make it more playful.

Advent – 10 ways to do it

Advent is just around the corner. Are you ready? If now, I’ve got some last minute ideas for you. Some of them might need a bit of shopping before you can create them at home, but you’ve still got a few days left.

I ended up using my Kubus candle holder from ByLassen again this year. I like in nice and simple – also when it comes to Christmas decorations. I’m a bit of a weird Christmas freak, when it comes to decorations. Truth be told, I’m more of a winter decorations kind of gal. I’ll add snowflakes, trees, snow, glitter, silver, some black, some lights and some toy animals and cars – and then I’m ready for December

Advent – what to buy for the kids

I had way too many plans this last week, so I got a bit behind on the posts here on the blog. Therefore,  I’ve decided to combine two posts that I had planned. I wanted to do a post full of gift ideas for my 7 year old little guy, and then one for my tween. Due to lack of time, I’ll show you what I ended up buying for them instead. I had a hard time picking out the gifts for my little guy, but I found the last one yesterday. Now they are all wrapped up and ready for next Sunday. How about you, are you ready for Christmas?

Advent – what to buy for your man

We only buy advent presents for the kids in our home, primarily because my husband isn’t too pleased with the idea in the first place. He thinks the kids get enough presents in December already. But I love each Sunday, because I think it’s special waking up to a small present, and then play with it afterwards. I think it’s an okay compromise, and I would rather buy four bigger presents than 24 small ones for each day.

Even though, my husband isn’t into it at all, I’ve still got a long list of things I would have bought for him – had he been into it. I hope the gifts I’ve picked out will inspire you – and hopefully your man will be happy, when he opens it on a Sunday before Christmas.

Are you ready for four Sundays of advent?

I’ll show you a few tips on what to use this year. So don’t worry, you’ll make in time to sit back and enjoy the day with your family too. Check out what I did with my own Kubus 4 for Advent here on Instagram.

4 Advent gifts for my girl

4 gifts for a girl

I’ve bought these gifts for my girl for the four Sunday’s of Advent this year. The reason why I didn’t write numbers on them, as I did with the Advent gifts for my son in this post, is because I haven’t quite decided what to give her on each Sunday.

Well the first Sunday is pretty easy. She’ll get her cubebot/ninjabot the same day as her brother. That way they can play with them together. I bought a bunch of stuff from Hay while I was attending the course in Aarhus earlier this year. A bunch of pink stuff for her room, which I know she’ll love. I haven’t decided if all the pink stuff should be one gift or several.

She has been reading her “This is London” book, and we wanted to give her a few more books in English. When I found “This is the world”, I bought it right away. I love the illustrations in these books, and we’ve been reading them to her for years. If all else fails, I’ve also got a tube scarf that I have to finish before Christmas. It could end up being her more practical gift.
