Only 4 more sleep to go and I think Buddy is getting really excited. He was trying to get one of my reindeer ornaments to fly this morning! I'm afraid only Santa can do that Buddy.

That is all the gift guides for 2016! I was toying with doing a stocking fillers guide but because I included a wide price range with each guide, I didn't want to repeat myself. If it's still something you'd like to see comment below!
I hope these help you in some way and that you're nearly prepared for Christmas!


I would love to know what you are getting up to this Christmas, if you've brought anything you've seen on here, excited to share present, makeup or decoration ideas or anything Christmassy! Message me on Twitter or Instagram or use the hashtag #HolidaysWithHannah.

In 2014 I showed you how I made some DIY Photo Baubles so I decided on showing you an idea for Splittable Baubles.
I started a tradition where I buy or make Baubles or Tree Ornaments for the children that I buy for in my family. So when they are old enough they'll have some for their own tree that contain memories of their favourite colours, characters and pictures of themselves.
This year I wanted to go simple and make a bauble with their initial. 
I brought the baubles and wooden letters on ebay and used paint, snow and ribbon that I already had, this is how they turned out:
If you're thinking of doing some yourself, other ideas include:
- Fill them with fake trees and snow.
- Fill them with a Character Figure.
- As their splittable you could use them to put gifts in, i.e socks, lego figures, shopkins...etc.
- Fill them with sweets and/or chocolate.
- Could cover the inside with glue and cover them in glitter.

There are so many things you can do with splittable baubles and I am so happy with how mine turned out, they were so easy to do and I love the fact you can shake the snow in them.
