Sharing Memories with BagsofLove.co.uk

Once upon a time in a not so far off place, there was a larger than average family with a Father, a Mother and 5 adorable children. They use to love spending time together and going on lots of new and fun adventures.

With each new trip, the family would create many of greatly adored memories but due to the family’s very busy and hectic life they never have much time to sit down and reminisce about all the fun adventures they had been on together.

The mother tried so very hard to make sure the children remembered. So she placed photo’s all around her home and created cute little photo books that told the stories of their past. But as the number of her children increased and the older children grew the photographs changed and the photo books became ripped or faded.

The thought of not having anything to show and share with her children made the mother’s heartbreak. That was until she found BagsofLove. It was here that the mother was able to find loads of exciting and different products that contained her photo’s and memories. Best of all she was able to share these things with her family.

There were pillows, pictures, cups, mats and mugs but the mother didn’t want something for herself she wanted something the family could all use. After searching the site for a few more minutes she found a beautiful blanket that she could print a collage of her family and the adventures they had been on. Straight away she knew would be perfect. They could snuggle together under the blanket on cold days, spend story time wrapped up the soft fabric that was covered with their smiling faces and it would be there to make them feel better when they were ill.

Next, she had the funniest but the hardest part of the process, she had to design and choose which images she wanted on the family blanket. The hours whizzed by as she chose her photos while tweaking and changing her design to something that she loved.

And so with a few simple clicks on her laptop the Mother had ordered this fantastic blanket. It arrived within days and was beautifully wrapped. As soon as the mother felt the soft fabric of fleece blanket, she knew that this was just what she wanted. The quality and finish of the prints photos on the fabric was unbelievable, not a single memory was blurred or distorted.

It was then that the Mother knew she had got the best gift for her family to share together and that this blanket was going to be a source of love, comfort and security, as well as reminding her family of all the amazing things they have seen and done together.

Wicked Uncle review

If you are like me and you loath having to go buy presents and gifts for other people’s children, then Wicked Uncle is the website for you.

Now I don’t dislike sending gifts because I am an evil Grinch of type person or because I don’t like other people’s kids. It’s because I will spend hours wandering around the toy aisles in supermarkets and toy stores staring at all the different toys and trying to decide if the gift I am going to buy, is something that a child I don’t know will like.

I find the whole experience of choosing a present extremely stressful, as I try to wade my way through all the different ideas of gifts. Do I go for the over priced plastic toys that they will no doubt be bored with in a few hours or I will have probably choose the one Toy/Character they don’t like. I will contemplate books, but will they think they are too boring or that I am cheap? Maybe they would like some arts and crafts? But then I will think of the tired parents looking at me and thinking, “Yay, more stuff for them to make mess with, thanks for that!”

But that is what makes Wicked Uncle, so great. This present service is aimed at supplying Uncle’s, Aunt’s, Godparents and Grandparents with a great selection interesting and unusual gifts that will be prefect for Birthdays, Christmas and Christenings. It can also be used by parents wanting to buy great gifts for their own kids or if they want to stock up on cool gifts for when their children get invited to the many parties their friend hold throughout the year.

The website is easy to use, is sorts the toys into ages ranges and you can click to see toys aimed at girls or boys. But if you are like me and know that all kids are different. Say you are looking for something for you outdoor loving niece, you can select all and choose the category that best suits her from a selection the selection and then the most popular toy for children in that age range will come up on-screen.

The main idea of the website is to help people send presents to other people’s children that you can choose to gift wrap in one of the 10 different types of wrapping paper. You can also add a hand written card to the gift, which is prefect for adding that personal touch. The gift and card can also be sent directly to the recipient, as well as a Thank you postcard with your name and address on. So they can get in touch to let you know how much they enjoyed your gift.

I must say I really enjoyed using this site and I managed to choose 3 completely different gifts that I wouldn’t have been able to find in the toy our book aisles or in the toys stores.Which means that you won’t ever be that parent that got the child the same as someone else at the party.

  • Science Magic IMG_6024
  • Road Dahl’s Completely Revolting Recipe cook bookIMG_6021
  • Jurassic World – interactive dinosaur book IMG_6023

All 3 of these gifts came in costing just over £40 (with gift wrapping, which costs extra) but they were still very reasonably priced.

So in Future if your stuck for what gift to buy for a friends child or your niece or nephew and you dread the idea of drag your kids round a toy store to buy toys they can’t play with, why not try Wicked Uncle and see what brilliant children’s presents you might find.
