Christmas Gift Ideas for Parent Bloggers

Christmas Gift Ideas for Parent Bloggers

I have been been loving the christmas lists on all my favourite bloggers websites.  They have been full of brilliant ideas and so I thought I would jump right in and do the same.

So here are some christmas ideas for blogging parents – in other words this is what I would like for christmas… hint hint Daddy monkey!

Spa Break

As someone who is Social Media ALL THE TIME, I love the idea of a spa break.  Which would naturally mean a digital detox for a day.  The thought of hanging out at a lovely spa relaxing and pondering life seems like absolute bliss


A white fabric box, with two lamps on either side, makes a homemade lightroom.

I was so chuffed when I made this the other week…

I have wanted Lightroom ( as in the photo editing software) for a while now.

The photography side of blogging is so much fun and I have a lot to learn. I really want to improve on this in 2017.

It is a main focus of mine and now I have my actual lightroom (see above) all set up at home, I want to take it to the next level.  So what better way than to get some fab software to help with your editing.  So this is number 1 on my wish list this christmas.

Possibly with a dummies guide on how to use it – this might come in handy

Photography Course

Leading on from this there is not much point in having editing software if you don’t know how to use a camera effectively.  So, the other thing on my wish list is a photography course.

As it turns out we found a great online course on Groupon (which my mum spotted – thanks mum), which I have already bought.  Although it is technically not christmas yet I have already started making my way though the course and it has helped massively.

Proof that you don’t have to break the bank to improve your skills.

Can  you believe that even though I have been blogging for nearly a year I don’t have a tripod?

In fact for the most part I have just used my iPhone to take photographs – hence the above mentioned photography course.

I have my eye on this oneI like it because it is lightweight, which will come in handy when I run after the kids.

So, this is definitely on my wish list this Christmas.  Well that and a camera charger as I seem to have misplaced mine…

Blogging Journal

I created my own blogging journal this year.  However, I have had my eye on this one by Paperchase for a while.

Blogging courses don’t have to break that bank either.  Aby Moore from You Baby, Me Mummy has a great variety of courses available, sometimes for free or for a minimal price that are always helpful and inspiring, check out her blog here.  The beauty of Aby’s courses are than she sends you the information to work through in your own time.  To top it off she is super lovely!

Also if you want to be inspired to learn more why not check out this blog post from View from In Here.  Nikki is one of the nicest and friendliest bloggers I have had the pleasure of virtually meeting.

Bloggers MugA white mug with Roger Hargreaves "Little Miss Blogger" on it - one for the mummy bloggers?

I can’t remember where I saw this originally.

However, I know it was another bloggers website but I can’t for the life of me remember where – if it was you please comment below.

I love the Little Miss Blogger Mug!  What a better way to enjoy a cup of tea.  Unfortunately, I don’t see a ‘Mr Blogger’ mug though, maybe we should start a petition…

A long lie and breakfast in bed

A white and yellow bed, with a tray of coffee sitting on it - perhaps a christmas gift or treat?

A bit short of cash?  This is such a lovely simple idea which I know most mums would appreciate.  A long lie with breakfast in bed, with little people entertained by Daddy.

What a lovely relaxing idea!

So there you have it, my complete guide for pressies this christmas for any blogger in your life.  In other words… my christmas list.  Happy shopping Daddy monkey…

Let me know in the comments what you would like for Christmas.

    All of these are awesome! I really need the little miss blogger mug in my life 🙂
    Well done with the lightroom too!

    Thanks so much for joining in with #MMBC. Hope to see you tomorrow xx

    I would love all the above. I’ll send this list to my other half! I did mention a light box to him a while ago and he laughed!

    Yes yes tripod! I so need one of these but somehow feel too silly to buy one myself and need someone to just get me one for Christmas. Thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub with this xx

    All great ideas. I would also like Lightroom (the programme but your lightroom also looks brilliant). I did a half day photography course and it was brilliant. I haven’t used my pre-sets (or flash) since. #MMBC

    Yvonne, the mug is adorable, sending this list on to Santa cause there are several things I want too. The tripod? Oh yes, the camera classes, those too, I would love to try lightroom one of these days! And that spa day? We should all go together! Wouldn’t that be fun!

    Thanks so much for the shout out, I really have learned the most and made the biggest jumps when I’ve taken a class and learned from others, it’s seeing things from a different perspective and how they do things. It really seems to shake things up for me! Love learning more about things I love!

    Happy Holidays my friend!

    I am so desperate for a good camera and tripod. I’m not sure santa is going to be kind enough to me this year for me to get both, but I can dream! Lovely list hun! xx #bigpinklink
