How to surprise your children with a trip to London

As you may have read, this week we are attending the MAD blog awards in London. The awards happened to fall on the same weekend as my eldest son's 8th birthday so we hatched a plan to take Harry and Heidi to London for the weekend but keep it a complete surprise.

When I noticed Wrapped for you* on twitter (follow them here) who are a local firm based in Gosforth specialising in creating bespoke personalised chocolates I just knew this would be the perfect way to reveal the surprise to the children.

I contacted Kerry, who runs wrapped for you with my idea and she loved it. It was fantastic to hear somebody as enthusiastic about my plan as I was. You can browse lots of different designs and order your chocolates on the wrapped for you website.

You can also design your own chocolate bars and even upload photographs or you own company logo. We decided to leave the whole design to Kerry and I could not have been happier with the results. Large chocolate bar's cost from £4.95 each.

Don't they look fab!

So on Friday morning the children dragged themselves downstairs fully expecting to sit down to a bowl of cereal but instead found these beautifully wrapped (wrapping is included) chocolate bars instead.

Here is their reaction:-

Now I don't normally allow my children to have chocolate for breakfast but today I did make an exception and they loved it! It really didn't last long.

Thank you to Kerry for such a wonderful service and great product. I will not hesitate to use your service again.
