We’ve had a few friends around for Christmassy themed play dates over the last few weeks. I’ve been feeling a bit guilty for working too much, so to make it a bit extra special, the children and I set up a Christmas shop for our guests to collect little Christmas gifts from as they left.
We had reindeer noses, also known as maltesers and maomi balls.
Mini winter houses, totally copied from Red Ted Art.
Candy canes, and salt dough decorations.
What do you think? What would you put in your Christmas Shop?
Other shop ideas:
We would make Christmas pudding truffles, and stained glass biscuits!
Oh that is such a gorgeous idea! We have been making gingerbread cupcakes- so thats all I could offer in our shop!

Hmmmm reindeer noses lovely x
ah this is a lovely idea! Maybe little carrots for ‘Snowmen noses’ ?!
What a lovely idea, you’ve been so busy! Love the reindeer noses with the red ones in! We would have reindeer food, we always make far more than we need!
such a lovely idea, I’ve not seen this before! I would put some traditional chocolate santas, choc coins, and german gingerbread type cookies
So sweet…hmmm, I would make of my Christmas bread all sweet and spicy, my children love it. Sliced and pit in brown paper bags 🙂
