Designs by Emma: Christmas Giveaway & Reader Offer!

 
If you are after the perfect, practical and pretty gift for a loved one (or yourself) this Christmas then look no further! Designs by Emma make the most stunning range of plastic coated bags. These can be customised to suit your, or your recipients, tastes by selecting from the most gorgeous (and extensive) range of fabrics you have laid your eyes on!
 
 
 
 
If you don't quite see a fabric you love (which would shock me), let Emma know what you might have in mind and she is more than happy to suggest or source something to suit.

I was so lucky to be on the receiving end of one of Emma's divine creations and I have to say this bag has seen it all!
 

From playdates and park dates, to swimming lessons, the gym and as a nappy bag - this bag is perfect for the busy Mum always on the go!
 
 
 
I was sent the large size bag which retails at $65.00. It has two interior pockets sewn in, which are SO handy for finding keys wallets and phones in a hurry. The above pic shows the bag loaded up with 3 regular sized beach towels just to show you just how much room is left - oodles of space!
 
 
And that fabric... I'd say with mint, pink and gold glitter polka dots, Emma nailed my bag in one wouldn't you?!

 
It is so pretty.
 
This sized bag really is a great all rounder, however if you are after something smaller (or bigger), Emma has so many different sizes in the range. You can also grab a small kids sized bag, a makeup bag and even a nappy bag with change mat in her range too. There really is a size and fabric to suit absolutely everyone!

Reader Offer

Emma has very kindly offered the first 5 Utterly Organised readers to place an order with her a 10% discount off their order. There is no expiry date for this, but it is limited to the first 5 readers only so don't delay in placing your custom order!

Decorate with Mint Imprint this Christmas! Win and Reader Offer


If you thought the name Mint Imprint sounded familiar, you'd be right! The gorgeous Ally from Mint Imprint is the very same that designed the amazing printed material for Miss C's Minnie Mouse themed 1st birthday.
 
This time Ally is back on the blog sharing some new (and stunning) Christmas themed printed material and goodies that have just been added to her Etsy store.

 
As we all know, I love a bit of glitter and sparkle (especially at Christmas), so this printable wall art is me! This design also comes as an invitation, perfect for those Chrissie parties you have coming up at your house or workplace.


The printed designs also come in a silver scheme if that is more your thing!

 
 This year Ally has her popular felt ball garland kits available in some traditional Christmas colours.


These look just beautiful as an alternative to the old tinsel on the tree!


If traditional is not your colour theme, then you can have the kit made up in a huge variety of shades (32 to be precise!) to suit - this grey, white and turquoise combo is just beautiful.

Santa's Little Elves: Personalised letters from Santa Claus himself!

Excited doesn't even begin to describe the reaction of my two when they discovered that Santa Claus had posted them a letter from his home in the North Pole! If you want to make Christmas even more special for your little ones, then you have to check out Santa's Little Elves. These guys are responsible for lifting the magic level of Christmas up a notch (or three), with their range of personalised letters and certificates from Mr Claus himself.
 
 
For only $12.95 your children will receive a personalised A4 letter which arrives in an individually addressed envelope (cleverly posted inside a discreet envelope to you). There are 7 individual areas that you can personalise your letter to make it more suited to individual siblings. For example, describe where Santa will leave the presents at your home, what activities your child has enjoyed throughout the year and what Christmas activities they love to do during the festive season. You children will be amazed by just how much Santa knows about them - proof that he really is watching all the time!

 
 
I love that in the letter, Santa invites the children to help him out by joining his team of Santa's Little Elves. As one of 'Santa's Little Elves', children are encouraged to help spread the true Spirit of Christmas by helping those less fortunate within the community. You get to personalise this too, and include a suitable activity such as donating toys or contributing towards the Wishing Tree.
 
Santa also includes a few little Christmas gifts with each letter he sends, so expect a little Christmas sticker, decoration and colouring sheet too.
 
My only word of advice with these letters is to film your little ones as they open their envelopes. I really, really wish that I had of done this as the reactions when they realise that Santa has sent them a letter truly is so priceless!
 

Important Ordering Dates: 

 
To ensure you don't miss out this year, final orders for New Zealand readers are taken on 27th November 2016 with all letters dispatched on Friday 2nd December 2016. If you are in Australia, 3rd December 2016 is your final day to order with all letters heading out on Wednesday 7th of December.
 
 

Reader Offer:

For a limited time, Santa's Little Elves are offering Utterly Organised readers the chance to save $1 off their personalised letters and certificates. Simply pop the code Christmas in at checkout to receive the discount off your purchase. This offer ends on 27th of November 2016, so make sure you get moving!
