Everyone loves things that are easy peasy. One thing that I've always found rather difficult is choosing gifts for children, I never know what to do for the best? Do I get something that the child will like, e.g. plastic tat, or do I get something the parent will like, e.g. a nice outfit from M&S. It's a difficult one, usually I try to do a bit of both. Until now, I have discovered a really lovely online store that allows you to get something fun and useful for children's birthdays - introducing www.my1styears.com
I was lucky enough to be offered the chance to review something from My 1st Years and I chose a personalised art apron for my youngest son - he loves painting and always seems to be getting paint all over himself (and everywhere else too) so I thought this would be a nice choice. Best of all, the apron also includes a lovely paint set with matching brush - which he absolutely LOVED!
Anyway, onto my review. The apron and paint set arrived inside a lovely gift box, this is a really good idea as I like sending things direct to people online but it seems a total waste of money to pay for gift wrap. The box is free which I think is a great idea and makes the item seem a bit more special. Plus my boys were keen on using the box to create a space ship for their lego men so it was a total win win!
Inside the box there was the lovely apron complete with the paint set neatly tucked inside the apron's pounch, I was thrilled. The quality of the apron was outstanding and I loved the way his name had been embroidered so carefully and lovingly. The apron is totally wipe clean so I won't have to wash it, I think that's a total must.
He's already had a go at using the paints and I have to say, they were great. The paintbrush was also a "proper" one that he could use over and over again.
All in all I was really pleased with the apron and at £14.99 it's the perfect price for a present.
