A cosy Christmas with Morrisons

Those who read my blog often will know that when it comes to Morrisons, I’m a huge fan. We love the Nutmeg clothing range and have had the pleasure of working with them throughout the year on some lovely projects. So when they offered to send us a Christmas hamper containing everything we would need for a cosy Christmas Eve, we couldn’t wait to receive it!

I have always loved Christmas Eve, it’s one of my favourite days throughout Christmas. I think there is something to magical about the anticipation and the excitement of it all, Christmas movies on the tv, Michael Buble crooning out festive songs, drinking mulled wine and eating mince pies in our Christmas jumpers.

This year Morrisons has sent us all a Christmas jumper each, and given my love of twinning, you’ll know just how excited I am about the fact that we all match!! We will be proudly wearing out jumpers on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day….and who knows, maybe even through to the New Year!!

The jumpers are the same high quality we have come to love and expect from Nutmeg, and for the first time ever available in a range of sizes to suit all of the family.

From ages 1-14 years, and adult sizes 8-22 and S-XXL, at just £10 and £12 they are all made of supersoft fabric, have no itchy name labels (this is the bane of my life with the kids!) and even better, are covered by the 200 day “no quibble guarantee. In terms of Christmas jumpers, you just can’t beat them!

Morrisons also sent us some new mugs hot chocolate and marshmallows, along with the most amazing box of chocolate including salted butterscotch, cappuccino and 72% cocoa. It’s taking all of my will power not to open them until Sunday but I’m sure it will be worth the wait!

We also received an absolute classic from Disney, a Cinderella DVD. It’s one of our absolute favourites so I know that on Christmas Eve morning we will snuggle down to watch it together, I can’t wait!

The children were so pleased with all of their goodies but none more so than the Decorate Your Own Gingerbread House! After a disastrous attempt to make our own one year I always buy a ready made kit these days, and the Morrisons one is fantastic! With icing, jelly sweets and candy beads it’s such a lovely activity to do together.

We made ours early this year to show you how easy it is, at three, four and five the children were so pleased with their creation and I think they did a really good job!!

Thanks to Morrisons that’s our Christmas Eve sorted, and I for one can’t wait!!

    Loving the Christmas jumpers! We do occasionally shop at Morrisons, but I’m envious! Our local one doesn’t have much clothing items. I do love their homeware though 🙂 As always, you all look really lovely. x

    • Laura Dove

  15. December 21, 2017 / 10:49 am

    Supermarket brand clothing is often of such a great quality! I really should consider buying it more often.

    • Laura Dove
      December 22, 2017 / 11:12 am

      I agree! It’s just as good, if not better, than the high street these days! xx

      Thank you so much Elizabeth. xx

  18. December 21, 2017 / 2:58 pm

    I love Morrisons clothing and think it’s good quality for the price. I never do a food shop though as I find the meat is poor quality and I find them really expensive. Love your gingerbread house x

    • Laura Dove
      December 22, 2017 / 11:11 am

      They have such a great clothing range! I find the meat is lovely at our local store, their steaks are top notch! xx

    What a phenomenal Christmas basket, we call your jumper a sweatshirt in the US so it took me a minute to figure out what your jumper was. They are very cute. I love that there stretchy with no label. This Morrisons sounds like a fantastic place to shop.

    • Laura Dove
      December 22, 2017 / 11:08 am

      Hehe thanks Stephanie, they are fab jumpers…or sweaters! Over here a sweater is more of a sweatshirt material, a jumper is more knitted? xx

  20. December 21, 2017 / 4:30 pm

    I can’t remember the last time I watched Cinderella! I love the sound of the hot chocolate mugs, and the salted butterscotch sounds mouth watering delicious.

    • Laura Dove
      December 22, 2017 / 11:07 am

      Oh it was delicious, I couldn’t resist breaking it open! xx

  21. December 21, 2017 / 5:36 pm

    i have yet to buy a Christmas jumper but I’m thinkingI ought to jump on the bandwagon, you guys look awesome! And the ginger bread house looks wonderful, how kind of morrisons!

    • Laura Dove
      December 22, 2017 / 11:05 am

    • Laura Dove
      December 22, 2017 / 11:04 am

      Ah its so much fun isn’t it? We enjoyed eating it afterwards, hah! xx

  23. December 21, 2017 / 7:47 pm

  24. December 21, 2017 / 9:29 pm

    I love the matching sweaters I attempt every year to make the whole family wear matching sweaters but no luck so far. I can’t wait to have kids and make Christmas stuff with them.

    • Laura Dove
      December 22, 2017 / 11:03 am

      Haha Christmas is all about the matching sweaters! I was SO happy that my boys finally matched, it’s been a long time coming! xx

  28. December 22, 2017 / 7:39 am

    How adorable are the Christmas jumpers?! So cute that you guys match. And the gingerbread house is wonderful! The one I made this year looked a wee bit sad because my gumdrops slipped and slided off of the rooftop. Never to worry, they still tasted pretty darn good. x

    • Laura Dove
      December 22, 2017 / 11:01 am

      Ahh that’s all that matters! Ours was a real mish mash and so much icing (oh the sugar rush!) but the kids were so proud of it! xx

    I discover the clothing range from Morrisons not long time ago and I have to admit the quality of the items is really good. How lovely that Morrisons sent you all the goodies. Matching sweaters are such a cool idea and I love the fact the boys are in blue and for girls, they stick with red.

    Have a lovely Christmas ! ♥

    I don’t think I’d ever attempt a gingerbread house from scratch so the kit is a very good idea. Great jumpers too. Glad you had Christmas Eve sorted. We went for new Pjs and new book but little one was so tired that he downed his milk, didn’t want a story but wanted his bed instead. Better luck next year hahaha
