Countdown to Christmas – Advent Calendar Day 3

If there’s a brand that has childhood written of all over it, it’s got to be Steiff. I have been given my first Steiff from my German grandparents, and it still warms my heart looking at it.

Steiff have long been considered the best of their kind. Hand-made in Germany from mohair, plush and cashmere, Steiff soft animals ooze quality and are extremely long lasting. No wonder little L calls her ‘My 1st Steiff’ her best friend.

Behind the 3rd door of the Advent Calendar waits a pink ‘My 1st Steiff’ that has recently gone out of production – for sure it will soon become a sought-after collector’s item. Either that, or a best friend to another little person.

Today’s Advent Calendar prize is sponsored by EddiesTeddies. sells only Steiff, focusing on great customer service to support Steiff’s great products. They have a Steiff for everyone, christening presents, wedding presents, Christmas and birthday gifts, or just a treat for yourself.

And the Steiff teddy goes to: Helen Jones. Congratulations! Please email me your address and I will pass it on to EddiesTeddies to send you your prize.

As for tomorrow – there’s nothing like a handwritten note to complete the perfect present…
