One “cheeky” little gnome 

Published April 13, 2017 by Bizzimummy

As many of you probably already know by now, I absolutely love unusual and novelty items. I love quirky things for both my house and my garden. As it’s now starting to get slightly warmer I have been getting a few ornaments and plants for my garden and here is one of the latest things.


This is one cheeky gnome and comes from Nuku which is home to a big assortment of unusual gifts

The cheeky mooning gnome also doubles up as a solar light when it’s dark, meaning that the light literally does shine right out of his backside. 

All I had to do when I got him was switch him on and position the little fella in a sun spot in the garden and let him absorb a few rays via his special panel. 


My kids thought he was a very funny gnome indeed with Izebella shouting that he’s sticking his bum out. 

Well we waited a few hours once receiving him and look what happened when it got dark!


His little backside lights up for all to see. It’s quite a bright light too considering the size of the gnome. It’s enough to light up a small flower bed and give a bit of a glow to a garden. 

This picture was taken at night but with the flash on so it does not show the solar light lit up but more the glow it gives off around it. 

Mooning gnome costs £18.99 and he’s perfect for any garden in need of a bit of mooning and fun. He’s bound to get many people interested and asking where they can get one.

I think gnome will be fine throughout the Spring and Summer months outside, but as with most solar lights and features; the colder weather can cause damage so he may just have to go into hibernation in the colder months. 

Ukinkalla gifts 

Published April 11, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Ukinkalla is a small online store selling many unique items from countries around the world. They have many colourful shoes, socks and accessories for both adults and children, items that probably won’t be found anywhere else.

I do love those special finds and Ukinkalla has many of them. Their accessory section boasts many unusual necklaces and earrings. I was able to choose a necklace and a pair of earrings. 


This is the necklace I chose – a Frida Khalo pink. Each necklace is hand made in Venezuela by Moda Maca, making each one very unique.

I have many charm bracelets but this is the first charm necklace I have come across and it is very pretty. 

The charms include a large doll, key, clover, golf leaf and mushroom. There are little jewels all along the front of the necklace too. 

The necklace is made with Peruvian lace, leather and cotton tassels with the charms made from cornstarch clay and gold plate. It measures 42cm and can be worn by adults or children. The clasp is very easy to open and close. 


It certainly caught Izebellas eye who was very eager to model it for me. It’s much easier to take a photo of someone else wearing it rather than attempt myself. 

I think it’s a really lovely unique piece. There are other styles available similar to this one and also some designed especially for children with well known Disney princesses on them. They cost £14.99 each which I think is certainly worth it for a special gift like this. 

The earrings are also quite unique and Ukinkalla can even make them on request in many designs. The earrings are made with copper or bronze and are gold plated. They do have a few pairs online to view and buy and these sort of jumped out at me. 

Yes dragon earrings and you certainly don’t see these in a regular jewellery shop. They are fairly big in size for earrings but will certainly stand out. The backs are the soft plastic type making it easier to remove them. The earrings cost £13.99 per pair.

My Mother’s Day treats from Lily Obriens

Published March 28, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Well there I was on Saturday just gone, worrying I would not get a thing for Mother’s Day. Then as if by magic, knock went the door and there stood a knight in shining at our bearing chocolate gifts from Lily Obriens

Well the chocolate gift party at least is true, the knight was the courier who bought it and his only armour was his vehicle but I can dream eh! 

Lily Obriens can be purchased in supermarket and they seem to be one of those brands that really jump out from the rest when spotted on the shelves. They are a luxury brand compared to the rest of the standard chocolates.

They have many selections available from small to large gifts boxes in all shapes and sizes with mixtures of milk, white and dark chocolates. Many of their gifts come pre wrapped as in the photograph above. They are purchased with the wrapping paper already on meaning no need to buy extra. Each one also comes with a label showing exactly what chocolates are in each box. 


I received two lovely boxes of Lily Obriens chocolates just in time for Mother’s Day and no I haven’t eaten them all just yet, I’ve been a good girl this time. 


This is the petit indulgence collection. Now on first glance it looks a small box and you only see six chocolates upon opening. However it’s deceptive as there are extra layers underneath. Not just one extra layer either but two, giving 18 delicious chocolates in total and all for just £5.50. 

The flavours are Lily O’Brien’s most decadent recipes and include Sticky Toffee, Simply Chocolate, Raspberry Crème, Chocolate Orange, Le Crunch Chocolate and Praline Perfectio.
And then this box too! 

This box contains an extra layer underneath giving a total of 24 chocolates. The Petit Desserts Collection has a wide range of indulgent flavours including Crème Brûlée, Key Limey Pie, Raspberry Infusion, Passion posset, hazelnut torte and banofee pie. This box costs £6.00.

I have really enjoyed these chocolates, they look and taste amazing, very chunky thick chocolate with multitudes of fillings and very low cost compared to other luxury chocolate brands. 

My early Mother’s Day gift! Jewellery box UK

Published March 22, 2017 by Bizzimummy

I have an early Mother’s Day gift which has been beautifully personalized and sent to me from Jewellery box U.K..

I love new jewellery and especially so charm bracelets, they are just so pretty.

And here is my new one which has arrived just in time for Mother’s Day.


It is a sterling silver bracelet with the 925 stamp near the fastener. Designed for women although quite small at just 7 inch. Luckily I have very small thin wrists so it fits me. 

The heart is the only charm but it’s a fairly large heart for the bracelet size. I was able to get the four names of my children on just one side of the heart. 

Personalisation can be either side and up to 30 letters. This gives it that overall personal touch which shows a lot of effort has been made with this gift. 

As the bracelet is on the small side, fastening it myself is quite tricky so I have to get one of my older two to help me with it. Obviously for people with bigger wrists this will be too tight. 

The bracelet without personalisation is £30.00 and with personalisation is £8.50 per side. Delivery is free on any order over £10.00 in the U.K and orders also get despatched the same day if ordered by 2pm. I can vouch for the fast delivery too. My bracelet arrived the very next morning after ordering it, so still time to order for Mother’s Day. This bracelet and all details can be found on this page.


And it also comes gift boxed too. 

The Pink mouse company:  Mother’s Day gift ideas

Published March 14, 2017 by Bizzimummy

If looking for a special Mother’s Day sweet treat this year, the head over to The pink mouse company website where you will find a whole host of yummy sweet treats.

Now I’ve been treated to a rather early Mother’s Day gift by The pink mouse company. First there was this yummy sweet tree. 

The one which I had; (and I sat had, as it’s all been eaten) is a chocolate m&ms tree but the sweet trees can be made with many other well known chocolates and sweets. They arrive presented in a lovely hamper style basket and wrapped with a big ribbon ready for gifting. 

The majority of these sweet trees even come in 3 size choices – small, medium and large. I think the large one would probably be too big as a solo gift and more suitable to parties or weddings, which The pink mouse company also cater for. 

Our M&ms tree was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. The sweets stay on the tree really well. I think the chocolate binds them together but once we managed to pick the first few off, the rest came off easy enough.

And if our sweet tree wasn’t enough of a chocolate fix, we also got this lovely Chocolate hot shots hamper.

This also arrives with beautiful presentation and contains a cup 6 chocolate hot shots and marshmallows. The hot shots and big blocks of chocolate attached to a wooden spoon. They get dipped and stirred into hot milk to melt into a hot chocolate drink. 

Add marshmallows which also melt in the milk and it’s just delicious and especially good just before bedtime.

Perfect chocolate gifts that any mum would love to receive. 

Perfect pamper gifts

Published February 21, 2017 by Bizzimummy

With Valentine’s Day over for another year, it’s perhaps time to think about Mother’s Day once again which is on its way in just a few weeks. 

Us Mothers need a bit of pampering every now and then and the majority of us ladies just love to receive pamper/bathing type gifts for any occasion. 

Now most ladies get fed up of the same bog standard supermarket gift sets that can be purchased anywhere and we like things a little different and special. This is where Perfect pamper gifts comes in very handy.

Perfect Pamper gifts create unique gift sets and pamper hampers containing luxury fragrant products. 

My own hamper arrived in a lovely little bow tied Jute bag, like this.

And yes you can even choose the bag colour. 

Before opening the bag, I knew it was going to be good inside because I could smell the lovely fragrant aromas inside. And inside – all these lovely pamper Goodies. 


The aromas are delicious and smelt so good, they made me hungry. 

I absolutely love all of the products inside. Just take a look at this Pomegranate & Vitamin E face mask!

It looks and feels like a fruity whipped cream and feels lovely on my face. 

The Whole lot of love bath bomb is huge and I can’t wait to drop into my bath. The centre rose part is made of soap petals which get pulled off and scattered in the bath before fizzing the bath bomb.

Then Sweet cherry body wash – the scent reminds me of my favourite yoghurt flavour and that’s black cherry. It contains cherry kernel oils and smells very sweet. 

Seville orange lip balm really helps my dry lips which I seem to get whenever I have a cold (which I do now!) 

And finally, for an added bit of bathing luxury – Wild rose scented candle. 

There are many pamper hampers to choose from, be it for mum, sister, daughter, friend etc. You can also Build your own hamper by choosing specific products and Perfect Pamper gifts even offer a Monthly subscription pamper box which I am considering signing up to. Monthly pamper treats sound amazing. 

The pamper hampers make wonderful gifts for us ladies and are a great idea for a Mother’s Day gift. The gifts hamper bundles such as the one I have start at £14.99 and include choice of bag, gift tag and personalised message. Each bag contains at least 4 pamper items depending on which one is chosen.

There are many to choose from at Perfect pamper gifts.

My retro gifts from Nuku

Published December 14, 2016 by Bizzimummy

Everyone knows how much I love my retro gadgets and gizmos, anything that brings back memories from the 1980s/1990s. Anyway I came across a rather cool gift website called NUKU. They sell all sorts of funky and unusual gifts and  gadgets. Stuff for the home, gifts for him, her, the kids and lots more. I really enjoyed having a browse through it all. Then I came across two items which are both really retro and things I remember from my younger years, and well; I just had to have them both.
Hands up if you remember this! 🙋

Yes it’s the old favourite – Big mouth Billy Bass or otherwise known as the singing fish. I loved these years ago, sad but true! They can be hard to come across in the modern high street gift stores these days but when I was about 11 they were everywhere, including on the walls of many homes. 
If your a bit younger than myself and have no idea what this fish thing is – well it’s a novelty gadget which either gets hung on the wall or stood on a shelf via its stand. It has two on functions – sensor and not sensor. When the sensor is on it detects movement and when off it works via a press of the button. 

This one plays two songs – “Don’t worry be happy” and “I will survive”. It also dances and wiggles its tail and it’s quite amusing to watch. My kids love it.

The best way to show you what it does is by making this short video of the thing in action. 

And that’s the singing fish which costs £18.99 from Nuku.
Now there is one item that my bathroom has been lacking since I moved to this house and that is a toilet roll holder. Yes I have toilet roll but they usually end up sat on top of the toilet. Well all that has changed now – as I now have one and a very unusual one too.

Yes you are seeing correctly – It’s a Polaroid style toilet roll holder. Very cool and rather funky. It’s tough plastic with a removeable bar to place the toilet roll on which then goes through the Polaroid slot. Nuku even sell toilet roll with images on to make it look even more like a camera.

This comes with the relevant screws and wall plugs to hang it and I’m very impressed with myself because I managed to hang it all by myself problem free, and I am rubbish at DIY. It only took me 20 mins or so and I don’t own a drill either. This Polaroid toilet roll holder comes in two shades and cost £12.99.
Don’t you just love retro type gifts!

Ecospheres

Published September 14, 2016 by Bizzimummy

So we have been sent over an Ecosphere. Prior to recieving it, we had n idea what it really was but my children and my visitors are fascinated by it. 

I’ve copied a bit of information from the ecosphere website which you can also read yourself as to what an ecosphere is. 

“Each Ecosphere is a self- contained Ecosystem within hand blown glass. They are all unique to each other due to the natural products contained within.

Inside each Ecosphere are small marine shrimp, filtered sea water, algae and micro-organisms. The system is completely sealed and does not need anything else (apart from the right environment) to survive.”

Therefore if you like, it’s something I between keeping fish and having those Aqua monkeys and it’s quite fascinating. The sphere is tough glass and sealed, meaning it can’t be opened by curious little hands. 

They come in many shapes and sizes and look great placed anywhere. Your visitors will be very curious if they spot one of these.

From recieving our ecosphere we have spotted at least 4 shrimp like creatures. They swim very fast so there may possibly be more. The obvious question is how do they survive without adding any food? Well that’s because the shrimp can survive on the algae and micro organisms already contained in the sphere and they can even live up to 7/10 years if placed in the correct environment. The sphere needs placing in indirect light. Many people would probably think about placing it on a window but this would be dangerous as the sun light would create a build up of too much algae. I keep mine on top of a glass unit, near a window but not directly in front of the sun and so far it’s doing okay.

All of the essential information about owning an ecosphere comes in a handy guide with the product and there is also some info on the website. 

To see an ecosphere in action I created this short video clip. You need to look closely to see the shrimps as they move so quickly. 

And now for the price – Ecospheres are pioneered by NASA. A lot of attention goes into each one and each one is unique. The shrimps last years and therefore these don’t come cheap. They start from £89.00 right up to £499.00 for the larger one. They do however make lovely unique gifts which are one of a kind.

Personalised charm bracelet 

Published July 29, 2016 by Bizzimummy

My favourite item of jewellery to wear is a charm bracelet. I love them. They come in many shapes and sizes and all with beads or dangly charms.

My latest charm bracelet comes from Personalised gift solutions who specialise in unique personalised gifts. Their new gifts include personalised jewellery and the charm bracelets really stood out for me.

There are a few to choose from with different colour beads and choice of charms. It was this one that caught my eye. 

bracelet  image
This being the Galaxy black butterfly and heart charm bracelet. You can choose between small – 18cm and large 21cm size of bracelet. My wrists are tiny so I have the smaller one which will also suit older children and teens. This bracelet comes with the following – 4 x Black Patterned Beads, 2 x Butterfly Clips, 2 x Jewelled Twist Charms and 1 x Engraved Heart Tag. It also comes in a presentation box. 

For the personalisation I chose to have all 4 of my children’s names on including Keiras who died at just 10 hours old


The bracelet fastens with one of the new type metal roll clasps. You open it with a nail and it locks the ends into place.


The black and silver beads on this bracelet work well with any outfit and it’s a piece of jewellery that can be worm for any occasion.


A lovely gift costing £29.99 with free delivery. 3 lines of personalisation and allow up to 7 days for your gift. 

Smile and say “Cheerz”

Published June 15, 2016 by Bizzimummy

Cheerz is a mobile photo printing app which enables users like myself to upload photographs from a mobile device and have them printed and delivered to your address.

Cheerz offers a variety of photo print options which includes prints in boxes, Polaroid styles, strips, posters and magnets. The retro magnet set is what really stood out for me. I love having magnets on my fridge, I do already have a few small photo magnets on there but these are quite different.


They look like they have come straight out of an instant camera, when ther were all taken with an iPhone. You can order as many as you want but in packs of 12 (being the minimum) which costs £15 per pack. Each one comes on a coloured background with the option to write text captions at the bottom. 


The colours can be random or chosen for each photograph as can the txt fonts. 

The magnetic backing allows them to be placed on a fridge or even a radiator meaning favourite pictures and memories will always be in view. 

My new retro style magnet photos turned out really well, each one being clear, and I was able to crop and make slight alterations where needed before placing the order. 


So instead of buying useless aprons or tea towels as gifts,or something that will get shoved in a drawer and forgot about, maybe think about buying a pack of these photo magnets instead. They really do brighten up my boring fridge freezer. 

Visit the Cheerz website for more information on available photo products and gifts and details on the app. Delivery takes 3-4 days.
