It was my littlest Godson’s Christening a couple of weekends ago and I really wanted to track down a gift that he could enjoy in later life as much as in his childhood. I was intent on sourcing a Globe to provide a snapshot of world history the year he was born, but finding one that was substantial enough and not decked out in garish colours proved rather tricksome. Some time spent on good old Google and finally I found what I was looking for. Artisan globemakers, Lander & May, came to my rescue and had exactly the globe I had in mind. Their modern day globe is 13 inches and has a polished stainless steel meridian arm and sits charmingly on a spun wooden base finished in a dark F&B blue. They are even able to personalise their globes with names, dates or routes which adds a seriously personal touch and makes your gift extra special.

Amateur blogger and London mum to 'Little A' and 'Little B', I'll be sharing all the handy hints, tips and products discussed by all the mums at the playground. Giving you the lowdown on all the latest for the mini me in your life.
About ‘Little A’
Now in Year 2 at his 'big school' Little A's days are filled up wrestling with phonics and maths, sword fighting with his pals and showing his little sister the ways of the world. A big fan of gardening, cooking and the Great Outdoors, Little A is certainly an adventurer and an explorer who is definitely still keeping his mummy on her toes.
About 'Little B'
A Reception newbie, Little B is flexing her muscles now she has joined her big bro at school. She is particularly adept at dodging the hairbrush and she still thinks Little A is the funniest person she knows. A lover of bunnies, cake and hide-and-seek.
