Win £30 to spend at Petit Fernand

petitlogoPFLast week I posted my back to school essentials list – with Maisy starting school in September I have been thinking a lot about what she will be needing – there’s a ton! One thing that sometimes slips parent’s minds but is an absolute essential is name labels. I mean what is the point in forking out a small fortune on new uniform/shoes/bags/books for it to get lost within the first week never to be seen again? There isn’t.

Maybe your a dab hand at sewing so painstakingly stitch your child’s name in to everything but for me I need something that will be quick, easy and that will last. Which is where Petit Fernand comes in, an awesome website which allows you to design your own personalised name labels they are then delivered to your door step in a cheque book style booklet – which has instructions on the inside cover, for a newbie to this that is a really nice touch.

The website itself is really easy to use, simply choose the product your after and personalise I went for the school pack as its such great value for money it includes – iron on labels, mini stick on labels, shoe stick on labels they really have thought of everything.

They aren’t just standard boring labels either, you can choose the colour, the font and a little icon its quite fun to get the kids involved as well to help design the labels they like.

As well as looking great they are really easy to apply if I cracked it we all can, the iron on labels are washing machine and tumble dryer resistant to ensure they last as long as possible.  Untitled design-4

So on to the giveaway Petit Fernand are giving one of my readers the chance to win £30 to spend on name labels and value packs – just in time for the new school term to start.

To enter follow the rafflecopter instructions below, the competition will end midnight on 12/08/15 one winner will then be selected at random and contacted via email.

Good luck!

    My son starts in Foundation year in September so I don’t have any tips yet but I’m guessing getting organised as early as possible so everything is ready ahead of time, is a good tip!

    The week before school starts I ensure that we have all uniforms and equipment ready. I also start easing the family back into our school routine. Getting up early and coming straight down for breakfast, then dressed. Rather than playing or watching TV.

    Get your children back into their school sleep routine a week or so before they go back to school, this stops it being a shock to the body and eases them back in gently

    Make sure all secondary school children have a pencil case with pens, pencils, rubber, ruler, coloured pencils etc. You’d be amazed how many don’t and never have the necessary equipment.

    We buy new uniform ie shirts trousers, socks, tshirts etc at a couple of items every time we do a shop then it isn’t such a shock than if we do one school shop all in one go. I always leave shoes and trainers/pumps until just before they go back though as their feet grow so quickly.
