By Elly Awesome
Nearly every parent right now is probably gearing up for the summer holidays. It’s the most hectic time of year, yet also one of the most exciting. Festive celebrations are in order, the kids will be on holidays, so there’s plenty of fun family time and cool catch-ups with friends and relatives on the horizon. BUT there’s also the S word… SHOPPING. Or to be more specific, CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!
I wish we could all count the amount of presents we need to buy on one hand (or even both hands) but unfortunately that’s rarely the case. My to-do list is out the door, and I’ve been dreading fighting the shopping crowds and the self-loathing I’ll feel when I inevitably decide to leave all my important Christmas shopping to the last minute. But that’s not even the end of it. My next concern is finding the perfect gift for each person on my list! Can someone please HELP ME!?
Ok, I admit, this blog piece was all a ploy to let you know that I have actually found (slash created) the perfect gift for the youngsters in your life. It’s my book, How to Feel Awesome Every Day! This summer holidays, never hear the phrase ‘I’m BORED’ again! My book is the ultimate boredom buster for your tweens and teens.
It’s filled with tons of fun summer holiday ideas such as easy D.I.Ys and recipes, drawing and colouring-in pages and plenty of options to get kids active and outdoors (or keep them cool and occupied indoors).

Everything in the book has been handpicked by me to ensure that your kids can have fun on their own, with friends or even as a family.
