The Baby Box Company Hamper Review

How exciting is it to welcome a new baby in to the family. It is probably the most exhilarating time of your life, whether the new arrival is your baby, a grandchild, new niece, nephew, cousin or a friends, excitement flows through the air like magic. 

Of course it is delightful to receive all those lovely gifts that loved ones so thoughtfully buy for you and it is equally thrilling to give them. That is where The Baby Box Company come in. 

The Baby Box Company can provide you with a choice of great baby hampers to send as gifts. We were sent 'The Really Useful Baby Hamper' to review and we are delighted to share our thoughts with you. 

The medium sized hamper is £25 and inside you will find:
  • 1 Aden & Anais Circus Musy Muslin Square
  • Baby Bunting Grey Star Print Unisex Bodysuit
  • Baby Bunting Grey Star Print Knotted Hat
  • Aden & Anais Twinkle Star Washcloth

We totally love these cute hampers and think they are great to give as gifts to any new parent. We think they are particularly great if you have a friend or family member that has just had a baby and maybe lives long distance from you. A hamper instead of a bouquet of flowers could be more useful or for someone who isn't keen on flowers. They are wrapped and packaged beautifully with a big red bow, so you can rest assured that the recipient will receive the hamper in perfect gift condition.

The Baby Box Company also sell individual products and well worth popping over to check them out.

Five Easy Foods To Grow With Kids

Kids usually love being out in the garden. Rain, snow or sun they don't care and they always enjoy growing things from scratch. Gardening is really good for instilling a sense of responsibility and excitement in your child as they eagerly plant their favorite fruits and vegetables, caring for them as they wait to reap their harvest. Not to mention, you can thoroughly enjoy a bounty of fresh, organic foods that your family grew together

There are lots of easy things you can grow together and this time of year is when you should start thinking about what you want to plant. You want your kids to have success when gardening, which will boost their confidence and love of growing their own. I have planted many different types of fruits and vegetables with my kids over the years and the following are pretty much foolproof. 

1. Potatoes - One of the easiest foods to grow are potatoes, they are tough, needing little fuss. You just need a spot in the garden that gets some sun and a seed potato which you usually buy in net bags from a garden center, online or from places like Wilkinson s. Even if you are limited on space with just a balcony, you can even grow potatoes in a bag just as we have many times. Plant them between February and May. 

2. Tomatoes - The taste of a home grown tomato is amazing and the aroma as they grow is heaven. You need a frame, trellis or simple canes to grow these as the grow very tall. seed them in pots first and when they get a few inches tall transplant them to a grow bag with three planting holes cut out. Stick a can in with each plant as they get taller.

3. Strawberries - Such an easy fruit to grow, strawberries can be grown in flower beds, pots or hanging baskets. I personally prefer to grow them in hanging baskets because you tend to get less problems with slugs when the strawberries are grown higher up. They are the fastest fruit you can grow and kids are always delighted to see them appear. Natures sweet candy, they are like finding garden gems when they turn red. You can grow these from seed, but you will see lots of garden centers that sell them really cheaply as tiny plants. Just re-pot them into a basket, pot or bed.

4. Peas - These are a delight to grow and the kids love making a cane wigwam for them to grow their plants up and over. Peas provide our gardens with really pretty flowers before they produce our peas and are thrilling to grow.

5. Radish - These are the easiest and fastest growing vegetable and a great one to start with if you want to guarantee a garden full of hundreds of radishes. Kids can secure instant rewards growing these as they only take 21 days from seed!

What do you like to grow with your kids?
