Camo Christmas

JC’s godson and his brother are some of our favourite people to buy for at Christmas. They are 8 & 5 and still at the age where us big kids can indulge ourselves and buy them stuff we would really have liked as kids.

Henry is still into machinery, be it tractors or JCBs, William is very much into his ball sports and loves the beautiful game (but he is an ace with a rugby ball!!).

I have to confess to always being on the look out for little things to take along for them when we see them and also ideas for their birthdays and Christmas.

Whichever little man’s birthday it is, the other gets a non-birthday present so they both have some fun stuff, there is no fighting and everyone gets to enjoy the event equally.

The challenge for birthdays and christmas if getting hard though. They are getting bigger and they are no longer impressed by silly bits of plastic (or cardboard boxes!!!).

Attention!!

Attention!!

I like to put a bit of thought into what they get and I also like to have made some of it.

This year, we have gone camotastic, camo overalls, camo wells (who knew!!!!), camo walkie talkies, camo helmets (they have webbing like the real ones), dog tags engraved especially for them and a big camo kit bag to put them all in.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the shopping and I have made the kit bags myself for all the camo things to go in (individually wrapped inside the kit bag that is also wrapped – evil present wrapping).

What do you think?

I’d have loved this little lot as a kid!!
