When I decided to become a mum, I dreamed of having winter babies. I had the notion of ‘hibernating’ throughout the winter with my little bundle of joy, wrapped up in cuddled then coming out at Spring appealed to me. Although both my children are winter babies, the reality was not that idyllic. In fact the first few years were rough. Now we are finally settling into a groove and I’m looking forward to this Christmas. It’s the second time that Team Tumolo will be celebrating the big day on our own. The kids are still quite young but very vocal and love cuddles. Caught up in a haze of co-sleeping and copious amounts cuddles my Nextmas Wishlist is all about family winter warmers.
As a co-sleeping family, I luv the idea of having a massive luxe throw for us to all bundle up under on Christmas morning. I’ve got my eyes of the Sliver faux fur throw.
Silver Luxe Faux Fur Throw £70 – £90
165 x 240 cm: Suitable as end of bed throw for double and king size beds.
Recently Angelo came home from nursery and told me how to make hot chocolate. Of course I know how, but he’s at the phase where he likes showing me how clever he its. Apparently the method he shared with me came from his teacher. I’d really enjoy making him and his sister, Valentina, hot chocolate with marshmallows… Bailey’s for hubby and me… on Christmas Eve night. The Love mugs are just perfect for us four.
Set Of 4 Love Mugs £16
Earthenware with embossed heart detail. Dishwasher and microwave safe.
I can’t deny that after 11 years together, I still swoon when I fall into hubby’s arms. Christmas is a romantic nostalgic cuddly time. I fantasize about wrapping myself into him in a lovely manly plush robe on Christmas night. I’ve found the one! The deep grey and blue are super sexy.
Premium Hooded Robe £30
As a child I always had special sleepwear at Christmas. Actually I still do. I’d like to start that tradition with my daughter Valentina. To me she’s angel. I think she would adore the winged tutu pyjamas. The tutu detail is perfect for a little extra girly fun.
Wings Tutu Pyjamas Top £20-22
My son Angelo is prone to having a little chill. Even in summer he’s usually under a blanket for walking around in blanket because he chilly (it also doubles as his cloak to perform Let it Got) and wants to be comfy cosy. I simply adore the reindeer hooded robe for him.
Rudolf Cuddle Robe £14
Suitable for age 3 years and above
As I said early in the post every year I have special sleepware for Christmas. With the passing of every year, the style reflects my stage and place in life. I’ve now crossed over to the other side of 40 and I’m luvin it. I think the DKNY PJs are the right balance between sexy and cute. My friends often say I wear my heart on my sleeve, with this I’ll be all heart.
DKNY Winters Eve Pyjama Set £59
Gorgeous pyjama set by DKNY, featuring all over heart print and red piping.
