Make Christmas sparkle a little more with PNP Santa

There’s little better than watching your children revel in the magic of Christmas.


The sparkling lights, the whisper of Santa visiting – the genuine belief they’ve heard a sleigh bell in the sky. I love it as much as Arthur and so the Portable North Pole Santa videos are just perfect.


You can create magical films personalised for your children using names, photos and special people.

It takes minutes and I am genuinely bowled over by the quality – a brilliant Santa and the voice, when saying Arthur’s name, sounds so natural. Set in the North Pole with a real backdrop of snowy mountains and cosy wooden chalets,  you can chose a tour of Santa’s post office, a visit to the elf house to find out which elf is watching over you or even a special song for your child.


Santa will talk about how proud they are of your child’s behave (or not if you’re feeling that way inclined!), and a little about what they like to do. You can also add in additional children so they can enjoy one with brothers and sisters.

I’ve created the elf house film which is just over five minutes long. I’ve also chosen the song as well. Plus – I couldn’t resist the special Christmas Eve version. At just a couple of minutes it shows Santa getting ready with his reindeers to take to the skies for the biggest night of his year. He feeds them some magic lichen and off they go.


Filled with snow and sparkle they are utterly magical and for a child, spellbinding. There are some short video as to make for free but even the most comprehensive package come in at just £9.99  and covers multiple films and children.

In the true spirit of giving, the PNP team has pledged to donate 5% of all web sales to Children’s Hospital foundations across the world.

If you’d like to try one for yourself (or your child!), here’s a special promo code for a 20% discount on all paid for videos. Just enter BLG20PNP at the check out to get your discount.

New Year’s Eve – how do you spend yours?

Before babies I spent a fair bit of December deciding what I’d be doing on 31 December. It had to be big, it had to involve as many friends as possible and the same went for alcohol as well. I loved it and standing on the cusp of a new year and all it promised.
Fast forward, uhum, a few years and the most ambitious I get on the big night is a few friends round for an early drink or, if I’m feeling really crazy, dinner out, followed by sharing a bottle of the sparkly stuff! To be fair it’s the same for most of my friends these days. In fact a new survey by Ladbrokes Bingofound that last year nearly 70% (67%) of us stayed in. You need a second mortgage to pay for a babysitter and the drinks and the hedonistic crazy indulgence of a full on New Year’s Eve is best left to those not juggling broken sleep and toddler tantrums – so can’t say I’m surprised.

New Year’s Eve for me is different now but still special, standing on the cusp of something new and focussing your hopes and dreams. I always make a resolution or two, although according to the survey, last year, 55% of us never made a resolution and out of those that did less than 10% had still kept to it 12 months later!

This year I’ll be having dinner with my boys, heading to my mum’s for a glass of something special and then it’s back to mine for a bit of tv and digging out the last of the chocolates from the bottom of the tin. But I still insist on staying awake, I might be in my pjs but there’s no way I won’t be watching the fireworks at midnight! Seems we’re all a bit reluctant to miss welcoming in the New Year and 76% of us stay up no matter what we’re doing.

So, have a great night, where ever you are and whatever you’re doing. Oh and remember to raise a glass and make a resolution – even if it is a cup of tea and you only stick to it until the end of January!

Seven perils of being Santa!

Santa Claus knows more than most the perils of heavy lifting…not to mention those icy roofs and loose wires he has to contend with. Here’s a little reminder of all the things facing the Big Man at this time of year – you might want to watch out for a few of these too!
