Reusable Advent Calendar

National Trust Reusable Advent Calendar
Reusable wooden advent calendar

I spotted this in the gift shop at Wimpole Hall (National Trust) this weekend and thought what a great idea. So many of the advent calendars we see are a mix of cardboard and single use plastic and hard to recycle. This on the other hand is a lovely wooden advent calendar which should last for years. At the start of advent you can fill this with your favourite chocolates. The little doors look like they are big enough to house more than one chocolate so enough for all the family.

Bestselling Toys and Games in the UK for weekending Saturday 16th September 2017

Lego Advent CalendarThese are the unofficial top 10 best-selling Toys and Games in the UK for the week ending Saturday 16th September 2017. As of today, there are 99 days until Christmas. We are seeing popular toys and games going out of stock which is a good indication that people have started their Christmas shopping. Indeed if you have a number of people to buy for it does make sense to spread your purchases over the weeks before Christmas to help your budgeting.

Of note, in this weeks top ten is the Lego Advent Calendar which is going to be very popular with 6+ year-old boys, and likely to sell out quickly. On the other hand, my daughter pointed out the Disney Moana necklace.
