I remember being a child and helping decorate the Christmas tree. The baubles and decorations back then seemed so different to now. They were made from glass, metal or pot and could break easily if wasn’t careful but they always seemed so pretty to look at. Nowadays the majority of tree decorations are cheap plastic and just not the same.
I was asked to choose a bauble from a place called Astons of London. They sell a fabulous range of gorgeous gifts both for Christmas and all year round occasions. The gifts are top quality and come at an affordable price and include several handmade items and lots of things which can be personalised. Their site is easy to use and navigate around with easy menus and clear pictures. Many of the items are hard to find on the high street.
Their Personalised Children’s gifts include santa sacks, throws, cups, cuddly toys and decorations. They have a selection of beautiful gifts for adults too.
I chose a bauble with a cute penguin design and on the back I had my children’s names.
I think the bauble is made from China. It has some weight to it and certainly reminds me of the old fashioned style baubles. It’s extremely beautiful and I’m actually afraid to handle it so much as I don’t want to drop it. It will really be a lovely feature for our tree this Christmas and years to come.
The bauble measures 7cm and allows 4 lines of personalisation with up to 20 letters per line which is quite a lot of lettering but it looks great.
If penguins aren’t your thing then there are so many other designs to pick from such as these below; and yes there’s even one for the dog if that is your thing.
