Teenage Bedroom Ideas

It’s that time of day, you are heading into your teenage son or daughter’s room to collect washing from the floor and various glasses and mugs hidden on the sides and you think, what’s with all the posters? Have we not replaced the little child’s lamp yet?…Is that a rip in the bedding?!

With half term upon us and time on your and your teenager’s hands, why not get together and give their room a spruce in time for Christmas? With the winter coming to meet us, making our bedroom a cosy, inviting place to be will make hiding indoors from the elements that much enjoyable. IWOOT is here to give you some teenage bedroom ideas that will give your son or daughter a unique bedroom to be proud of!

Halloween Cupcakes

Real Recipes : Kids Party Food

It’s half term this week for thousands of children across the UK, which means they have extra time (and energy) to get excited and prepared for Halloween and bonfire night parties. With the weather being…well just a bit dull, kids will be spending more time indoors, looking for fun, new activities. So why not get them involved in some party food prep? They’ll be away from the T.V, learning lots of new skills and you’ll have to spend less time hidden away in the kitchen on your own! So, discover some creative party food treats with IWOOT this half term and join in the bake off fun!

Double Breasted Suits with Reiss

A Mad Men Evening with IWOOT and Reiss

It’s hard to admit, but winter is finally upon us. The evenings are cooler and darker, and unfortunately there’s not much we can do about it; not even the brilliant inventors at IWOOT.com have managed to build a time machine…yet.

Now, although we all love a Saturday evening, sat in watching a classic film, snuggled up under a blanket – we’ve been thinking about how we can make winter evenings at home a little more exciting. Dinner dates, game nights, bake off competitions and movie themed evenings were among our favourites, with a particular stand-out suggestion made by our film and series fanatic, Tom.
