Refresh your child’s bedroom this Christmas and you will reap the rewards in the new Spring Term.

What child doesn’t want to be treated to a clutter-free, stylish personal space? And not just the girls – boys love a bit of teen artwork on the walls and a handful of cool gadgets by their bedside.

When did you last really look at their bedroom? Head in there before the holidays, or work together this weekend, to throw out the rubbish, recycle all the books that are clearly for younger readers and bag up anything at all that isn’t absolutely necessary. And once that’s all done, a small amount of online shopping for Christmas will transform the space in no time at all.

With all that new, well-organised space, I feel a little independent homework coming on! With a new timetable too. So they’ll be all set for academic glory next term…Shh!

Cool posters and artwork (click on the blue links)

This beautiful map of the world is covered in a gold film that you scratch off when you visit somewhere (or someone does on a business trip, or granny does on her cruise!)
STYLED-UP MAP POSTERS TO CHOOSE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD I love the USA number plate map best…
COLOURFUL TINTIN POSTERS  retro, in French (of course!)  and delightful in delicious colour combos

Sneaky gifts (all still fab) to help organise the space

My son has been asking and asking for his own whiteboard, so here’s a lovely wood-framed one (60cm by 90cm)

WALL-MOUNTED WHITEBOARD WITH WOOD FRAME AND FIXINGS ok so they’ll write rude words on it at times…

 

WHITEBOARD PENS AND THE WIPER THING there are more colourful pens around, but I like these because they come with the wiper in a pack so won’t get lost.
PROPER PUNCH BAG THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY PUNCH (AND FILL WITH LAUNDRY) Odd to buy a laundry bag but punch bags are cool if you can hang them somewhere sensible!

 

CUTE CATH KIDSTON STORAGE BOXES IF YOU’RE INTO THIS SORT OF THING

Affordable furniture – just a desk and a chair

Divine cards, writing paper and pens

Couple of fun bits to put in their new space

SIMPLE STYLISH CLOCK RADIO FOR OLDER ONES I love this John Lewis orange one, but it comes in other colours too
