Kids are back to school, I am back to work. And….. like a great shiny twinkling bauble on the horizon…. something is already looming, the next holiday is….. Christmas (there I’ve said the word, its not so bad after all).
I am not the most naturally organised person – I write lists and then I lose the paper I wrote them on. I have great ideas in the middle of the night, but come 7.00am my mind is a blank. This year however, I am dedicated to cracking my Christmas gifting, but what to do?
Be original with your Christmas Gift
I don’t have time to go around the Christmas fairs which everyone raves about, and I don’t have the money to buy everyone that Caribbean holiday that deep down they would really like.
But I want to show them that I have actually given this some proper thought. I want it to be a tiny bit original, but its hard these days when there is so much idea sharing going on.
Paper Made Personal
With this in mind, bespoke is obviously going to be the key and personal is my buzz word. So paintbrush in hand, I am putting together a portfolio of illustrations that cover every weird and wacky hobby that my friends and relations partake in, thinking I might not be alone!
There is of course gardening and baking, horse riding, cricket (a lot). There are the slightly more abstract ones like beer making (my godfather has retired and started an artisan brewery, very handy ). Mountain biking and for the most austere aesthetic amongst my friends, I am going to pick out the most stylish typeface.
With these illustrative gems, one can now set about choosing stationery to pair them with. Of course there will be the regular correspondence and ‘At Home’ cards which are just so useful they cannot fail to please.
Labels for the sloe gin maker of the family, and naturally the unicorn headed paper for my little niece to practise her new love of joined up writing.
So however tricky or discerning the recipients of your gift list might be this Christmas, I promise that you will be able to find the perfect match for them here at HoneyTree.
