I can’t believe Christmas is only
8 days and 14 hours away!!! It’s this
time of year I get nervous butterflies hoping everything will be ready in
time. December is so busy with extra
events that I panic about making sure all the present buying, wrapping and
delivery is achieved before it’s too late!!!
If you have family living far away it’s tempting to get
them gift vouchers to save on the postage costs but where is the originally and
the thought in the gift then. I love putting
together a tailored package of goodies, perhaps a candle, chocolates, smellies
and other bits and pieces. Since I have
got older I actually like giving as much as receiving gifts, its fun shopping
and finding items to add to the present pile to send. Although its worthwhile having a budget in mind so you don’t get
My wrapping could be improved
upon but I hope the fact I like to send nice treats so the recipient can be
pampered a little means they don’t notice the lack of ribbons and the overly
sellotaped corners!!! Next year I want
to get a bit more organised and get adequate supplies in to make a bit more
effort with the presentation – brown paper, gift bags, sparkly ribbons, tissue
paper and tags.
I have a VERY bad habit of just using a little bit of wrapping
paper turned backwards to write people’s names on!!! Santa also doesn’t label the
presents he delivers; they just arrive in red for one child and blue for the
other! I guess I am a little lazy in
that respect, but having seen some lovely labels next year I vow to be
different… I think its time to make the outside as pretty as the present. I love these Christmas
wrapping ideas its amazing how much can be done with brown paper and a
little imagination, patience and time.
Although if your like me and struggling to get everything done for
Christmas you are completely forgiven for wrapping presents with as much finesse
as a two year old!
When you have picked out the goodies you want to send
make sure you book your courier service in time for a festive delivery. TNT
have a Christmas delivery schedule so you can check it will arrive on
time. It’s getting so close now you
don’t want to take any chances.
