Bloggers we are a fickle bunch and we seem to have a gift list as long as your arms, well the ones I ask do, so here is our great gifts for bloggers list curated by Mum in the Mad House.
Great Gifts for Bloggers
Cameras and Kit
Pictures are the heart of a lot of blogs and it seems that a lot of us would love to update our cameras this Christmas. Top of Not another mummy blog and style me sundays list is the Olympus PEN camera, where as a GoPro would be in Keeping up with the Jones Family and Mums do travel’s stockings.
A new DSLR, lightbox, editing software and photography classes would really make You Baby, Me Mummy, All you need is love and cake, Over 40 and mum to one, Cherished By Me, The Olivers MadHouse, Happy Homebird, Podcast, Crafts on Sea and Emmys Mummy
Notebooks are on the top of most bloggers christmas lists this year with Owl Crazy Mummy, Frugal Family, Oh so Amelia and Baby Budgeting all asking for them. Personally I adore the ones from Papermash and also We are Bread and Jam. And with all those new notebooks then new pens would be required both Charlie Moo and Me and the tiny three would love, Bureaux Direct have some beautiful Lamy Pens with coloured ink. How about turning your blog in to Blurb Book, this is what Holly Bobbs would love and I know how great they are as I just made three as Christmas gifts!
Tech and Gadgets
I think that bloggers also have a love of tech and gadgets, so we also love things like a Wifi SD Card
or a portable charging devise and Three Children and It and This Girl Loves certainly would love to receive them on Christmas Day. New Mum online would love a years hosting.
Blog branded stuff
I am a sucker for anything with my Blog name on. So I was delighted when getting personal sent us a doormat and door stop with The Mad House on. It would seem that I am not the only one A happy healthy mum would love a gym kit and bag with her blog details on.
My Wish list
I am currently lusting after a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 along with some photography lights and I love the idea of a book of babysitting vouchers like Raising wild ones suggested. Oh and Baileys and lots of it!
Now I am going to leave you with a question, what do you think Katie from Hurrah for Gin is after from Father Christmas?
Win a Gigaset QV830 8 inch Tablet
Now I can not offer you any of the above, but I do have a fab Gigaset (formally Siemens) Tablet to giveaway, that we have been reviewing for the last 6 weeks. It is a budget tablet that retails at under £100 and for that you get a metallic body, 8-inch HD screen and 1.2GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of memory (which is expandable with micro-SD storage). It comes with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
It has a front and rear camera, which to be honest are fine in daylight, but have lots of noise in low light, but you can pick up the Gigaset QV830 8 inch Tablet for less than £70 at the moment, so even cheaper than the Hudl (which we loved) and it also has a metal back.
Overall it is a great entry level tablet and a real bargain at £70.
GIGASET QV830 8″ Tablet – 8 GB, Black Giveaway
Disclosure: A few of these items were gifted, some were purchases and the others are wanties! Three are affiliate links in this post too (no cost to you). I only recommend things that I totally believe in and I have not been paid to promote these items!
Wow, you’re all doing much better than me. I’ve had so many fabulous things to review this year that I couldn’t think of anything at all that I needed for Christmas. I’ve asked my sister who was unlucky enough to draw my name in secret Santa to get one of the charity gifts where the money goes to someone who does need something. Have a great Christmas, I hope you all get everything you’re hoping for.xx
