If you want to make some unique and special memories with the kids this summer (when you are not working and trying to juggle everything!). Then I have some top summer holiday tips for you to make this the best summer EVER!

 

Plan your Summer holiday with the Children

 

First up, get organised this summer with my FREE Summer Holiday Planner. Plan your summer holiday with the children by marking down clubs and other activities you have arranged over the school summer holidays. As a Mum, planning the holidays with a visual planner has always helped.

Take lots of photos this summer ☀️ 

 

Taking photos is a must during the summer holidays! There are so many memories created during the holidays. Don’t forget to send me your favourite summer holiday snap after the holidays and I will create one of my embroidered portraits!

Celebrate a unique summer anniversary

 

The summer holidays are not just about the kids - they are about couples too! The summer is always full of weddings and there are plenty of summer anniversaries to celebrate too!

 

Here is my anniversary checklist for a unique and special anniversary

 

1. Card - Don’t forget I make an anniversary card for each year of your anniversary based on the traditional gifts given each year - you can find the anniversary card range HERE.

2. Or if you would like a unique and special anniversary card for your wife, husband, boyfriend or girlfriend then I make these beautiful personalised anniversary cards.

3. Celebrate - it doesn’t always have to be a unique or crazy idea for your anniversary. Just make sure you plan some time together to toast and acknowledge your years together.
4. Take a photo of yourself and your spouse. Looking back at those images of you both over the years is so precious.

 

 Most importantly, this summer - don’t forget to make some precious memories and take plenty of photos! And if you, too, have 6-week to plan and entertain children - make sure you have lots of gin on order!
