Melody and Me ♥

I'm all about handmade this Christmas from my personalised handmade decorations, to lots of Christmas baking, I also wanted to get my baby boy some beautiful bespoke gifts for his first Christmas as I find handmade gifts are just so beautiful and something to treasure forever. What I love about handmade is that the pieces are keepsakes, something which will be adored for years to come and kept in the best condition as it is something to truly love. I've gotten quite a few handmade gifts for my baby this Christmas including some charming hares from Melody and Me. This Christmas we bought Tyler Lee the 'Guess How Much I Love You in the Winter' book and for our story time I wanted to get him some cuddly characters to make the story come to life and to cuddle into while he's being read his book. I bought these one of a kind, irresistibly adorable knitted Big Nutbrown and Little Nutbrown Hare which came with a 'Guess How Much I Love You' snuggle book, I thought this was such a gorgeous gift for my baby boy's first Christmas and you can be guaranteed that these little knitted hares will be a keepsake within our family forever. I was also incredibly lucky to win a hare from Melody and Me and he's a tall chap! You can see Hawthorn Hare below ready for the winter with his scarf wrapped around his neck, isn't he beautiful? He shall also be given to my baby boy for Christmas. Melody and Me provided very swift delivery, perfect products and Penny, the lady behind it all is an absolute pleasure to deal with. I am so impressed that I have even booked a slot to get a personalised hare duo for baby's first birthday. I can't recommend Melody and Me enough!

You can follow all the happenings of Melody and Me and keep up to date with all the hare loveliness by liking the Melody and Me Facebook page.



  1. These are gorgeous Fiona! I still have a little horsey teddy that my dad bought me years ago I also have a little spider teddy that my Aunt made me when I was a baby aswel that I constantly had to keep bringing up to her to draw the eyes back on with glitter glue :)

    They're great keepsakes and I wouldn't part with them for love nor money!

    1. Thanks Cint! Awh how cute! I was keeping all my teddies in our cellar for my children but it flooded and everything got ruined, I sobbed :(

      I hope Tyler Lee loves his keepsakes just as much as you love yours! xo
