If you are anything like me, you will be on a budget for Christmas presents, but still like to do Christmas Stockings for the older children and your partner, but with useful items rather than just padding it out with anything you can find.
My husband and two older boys cannot get enough of computer games, and he is forever telling them how much fun he used to have on his Atari / Super Nintendo and Sega Mega Drive. In fact the Mega Drive has made an appearance from the loft and is currently being put through its paces.
When I was invited to review some Retro Space Invader goodies from Play.com how could I say no?
My idea for this one was to give it to my husband, as Space Invaders was his era, but my 12 year old son Kian spotted it and claimed ownership straight away. When I explained he doesn’t drink tea or coffee he replied “Well I do have Hot Chocolate!” – that told me!!
When cold the mug has a few coloured Space Invaders, but the majority of the mug is black. Add some Hot Chocolate (or hot drink of your choice) and voila – a mug covered in large and small Space Invaders!
This is a very popular mug in our family, with each of the older kids clamouring to use it and the quality is good too, so I would definitely invest in another. The only downside is that it cannot be put in the dishwasher! Priced at £6.99 it would make the perfect stocking filler, Secret Santa or friend that has everything gift!!
Again, this has been snaffled by Kian, who wanted a more grown up wallet. It is a leather look material with plenty of space for cards and notes, but no space for change? It always makes me wonder why men’s wallets don’t come with a zipped area for change??
