Not long now and I think I’m allowed to start mentioning the C word? Yes, Christmas will soon be upon us! I’m fairly certain I’m not the only one wondering where the year has gone, but at the same time (like every year) I’m really looking forward to the festive season. With fairy lights, scented candles, hot chocolate and then of course mulled wine, this is the cosiest time of the year.
I have also started to think about presents. Not so much about what to give, but how to give it. You see, I believe that even the smallest gift can be beautiful as long as it’s chosen in a thoughtful way and wrapped nicely.
And when it comes to the wrapping part, I always like to add something a little personal and preferably handmade. So, this year I’ve opted for something with a little bit of glam but that nonetheless has the handmade touch.
If you’re curious, then read on.
