This Mummy Loves… Chocolate & Ginger

competiton/ Featured/ giveaway

Yesterday I discovered Chocolate & Ginger on facebook and just had to feature them on my blog! Emily lives in deepest rural Suffolk & is expecting her third child and has started to make these gorgeous bears for people out of their favourite babies clothes as a keepsake! I absolutely love this idea and although I have seen them made before I adore the way Emily does them and the little details she includes!

Emily aims to have bears made and sent back to you within a week of receiving the clothes parcel that you send her! Obviously at busier times this will be longer but Emily will inform you of the wait times when you order 🙂

Each bear costs just £22 and you can pay an extra £3 to have your child’s name & date of birth hand embroided onto it! P&P is £4.00 as all bears are sent out special delivery! Emily also sells Gift Vouchers for the bears I think they would make an ideal new baby gift or babies first birthday, Christmas etc!

To order a bear you can email Emily at chocolateandginger@hotmail.co.uk or follow her on facebook https://www.facebook.com/Chocolateandginger to keep up with her news. 🙂

Emily is very generously giving one of her hand made bears away to one of my very lucky readers! How awesome is that? Just fill in the Rafflecopter below to enter and Good Luck!! (I’m not jealous at all ;))

    I LOVE THIS IDEA!! I have never ever come across this at all, how wonderful! I would so want one myself lol, but I would actually get one made for my sister in law, herself and my brother are foster parents, and they are taking wonderful care of a little baby boy while his mum is in hospital, she could be there days or months or years, and of course, as us mums do, she forms such wonderful bonds with the babies she takes care of. I would love for her to have one of these as a reminder of what a wonderful selfless thing she is doing, being a ‘sometimes mummy’ which is what she tells her little ones she cares for. Fabulous prize xxx
