What to Buy a Blogger for Their Birthday

 

Yay! It’s my birthday!!! *that’s why I am allowed to use an obscene amount of these !!!!* Well, just for today anyway. I have been lucky enough to be given money and vouchers for my birthday. Thank you everyone. So, onto the very important question of… what to buy a blogger for their birthday? Or in my case, what to spend your birthday money on! Woo-hoo.

 

What to buy a blogger for their birthday

 

 

Behold… the all-important cup!

 

What to Buy a Blogger for Their Birthday

 

Bloggers are busy people, and busy people need fuel. Whether you’re a tea or coffee drinker, this oh-so-cute Little Miss Blogger cup from truffleshuffle is going to hit the spot and keep you smiling.

 

 

 

Did someone say cake?

 

What to Buy a Blogger for Their Birthday

 

No birthday is complete without cake. But how about a slice that just keeps giving… every week! Most bloggers will be familiar with trendy subscription boxes, and this is no exception. I have recently found a Cake Slice Club over at The Cake Nest. It’s a monthly cake slice subscription box which delivers a new exciting cake slice to your door every week. There are so many options to choose from, even Cake Slice Club for a whole year… now we‘re talking.

 

 

 

Something pretty for the blog

 

3 Little Buttons

 

Anyone who’s caught the blogging bug will know how important a blog design can be. We are not just talking about the overall template; there is also the blog header to consider and all the extra little bits that make it oh-so-you! Helen over at Ellie Illustrates does some fantastic doodles that can give your blog a bit of a sparkle. At the moment I am dreaming of some new Blog Category Buttons.

 

 

 

Somewhere to record your achievements

 

What to buy a blogger for their birthday

 

When I think back to when I first started properly blogging in November 2015, it’s hard to believe how far the Button blog has actually come to date. In search for more notebooks (no blogger can have enough notebooks) I came across this lovely Weekly Reflections Journal from The Green Gables. It’s a stylishly simple journal where you can document your blog achievements and thoughts for the week.

 

I have recently found out that I have been nominated for the 2016 MADS blog awards for Outstanding Contribution for making the blog world a bit ‘smilier’! How lovely is that! OK, so it’s not something super serious, but it is super-wonderful! Having a journal like this would mean that I wouldn’t forget to record these lovely little achievements.

 

 

 

A minibreak

After all that blogging, working and balancing a family, I can’t think of anything more wonderful than taking a little break. Of course something that ticks all the boxes is hard to find. I am thinking along the lines of a break which has enough entertainment to keep Little Button occupied, as well as having something relaxing for me to enjoy too.

 

Topping my list of ideas at the moment is a Center Parcs break to Longleat Forest and a trip to Legoland with an overnight stay in the resort hotel. Exciting stuff!

 

 

What do you think and which would you pick?

 

 

Disclosure: This is not a collaborative post, nor have I received any of these products to review. All views are my own. However, should any of these company’s like to send me a birthday present, please do! *Joking of course – #SorryNotSorry*

 

 

If you enjoy reading the Button blog, we would love your nomination for the best writer category

in the Mumsnet Blogging Awards 2016. Thank you xx

    So this cake slice by post thing… I can change the frequency to daily right? :0) Love the Little Miss Blogger mug! Ooh and if the birthday fairies are kind to you I’ll hopefully see you at Longleat – we’re going in a couple of weeks to celebrate my birthday too! (Small world eh?) You absolutely do make the blog world a lot smilier lovely. Good luck and I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.
    Happy birthday – and thanks for linking up with #fartglitter x

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🙂 Brilliant ideas! I love them all, the mug, the cake, the mini break (without kids though haha!). Someone should definitely send you some freebies for the promos! Sorry to hear about your house nightmares though. Hope it all gets sorted soon. Alison x #DreamTeam

      Thank you Alison. I am crossing everything in hope that things start to go right with the house, well, the dodgy window company that is. The house was fine until they got their hands on it. xx

    Happy birthday and congratulations on your MAD Blog nomination!

    There are some great ideas there. I love the idea of the reflections journal but I’m thinking more about a work sense for that one! I know the value of a great mug and I still mourn my lost and broken Manics mugs!
