Gifts for Christmas.
It’s That time of year again,
……………………………….. when everybody’s steeling themselves for the trek around the shops, heaving with other people all desperately looking for special “somethings” to give as gifts. Oh joy!!
I’ve been thinking about Christmas presents and it struck me that you might find my thoughts interesting and useful, so here they are….
To me, the point of Christmas presents is to give, with love, something special to the people we love.
Do you think that too?
However, for some time now I’ve found it very difficult to find that “something special” in the shops because people had already bought what they wanted, when they decided they wanted it. So……… I decided to put together my own combination of things which I know will please each person and, at the same time, will not cause them any harm.
For example. One of my friends loves to luxuriate in the bath, so last year I gave her Indulge Bubble Bath and Tender Care Hand and Body Lotion, each wrapped in Florist’s (Seasonal) cellophane tied up with curly ribbons; some tea-lights with a pretty glass container (similarly wrapped) and then all wrapped together in Christmas paper. She was really pleased and enjoyed numerous hours of relaxation without any toxic chemicals to hurt her! Mission accomplished.
Have you thought that, without leaving the house,you also have access to toiletries, skin care and cosmetics which are truly unusual and unique because, being based on real science, they are not only toxin-free, they really are effective too?
With fancy boxes, gift bags, tissue paper, ribbons and bows readily available in the Christmas Shops, small baskets in Charity Shops and Seasonal cellophane from your local Florist with tissue paper, it’s easy to gift-wrap Your Designer presents in a personal and unique way too.
I made the gift bag on the right but you can buy them and personalise them by replacing the handles with 2 bows to fasten them together or with a longer ribbon going through all 4 holes ending in a single bow.
I used wire-edged ribbon for the 2 bows above, curling the ends by wrapping them around the handle of a wooden mixing spoon.
If you use metalic ribbon you can achieve the same effect by pulling the ends across the sharp edge of a pair of scissors.

I’m sure you will be surprised and pleased.
You will find a variety of products which can be combined to make a “Beauty Box” to pamper the ladies and a ” Grooming Box” for the men in your life to make shaving quicker and easier …. and cut out “razor burn” !
I’ll post ideas for a Beauty Box and a Grooming Box separately.
