Following an exceptional but exhausting wedding is a short period of untainted bliss, relaxation and time spent with your significant other. Understandably you may envision your honeymoon as stillness after the storm, so what can ultimately beat the joy of a dream getaway?
I’ve never been that good at gift wrapping, I love decorating gifts, but the actual wrapping has never really been my strong suit. It’s reasonably easy when the gift is square or rectangular – but most of time it’s not. That’s why I simply love gift bags.
When was the last time you heard someone call out “teatime!” Clanking noises in the kitchen herald that yummy cup of afternoon tea alongside tasty teatime tarts and other temptations. Whether you prefer your tea black served with honey and a slice of lemon or well steeped with a dash of steamed milk, tea has a comforting, soothing effect that has stood the test of time.
Finding gifts for friends over the festive season can be both overwhelming and expensive. I never know exactly who I should give gifts to over the festive season, you know, what are the rules regarding gifting? And when you get married the size of you family “doubles”. So in the past two years I have baked Christmas cookies that I decorated and packaged beautifully.
I have been giving wedding favours, and actually just the act of giving gifts a lot of thought lately. When wedding budgets hit the roof (as they do!) wedding favours are almost always the first to go. I get it… I have also been at weddings where the end of a beautiful evening showed evidence of rude receivers who abandon their gifts. And that sucks, I know. But I am still (stubbornly) a believer in wedding favours.
If you have a big family, or you don’t know what to buy for friends this Christmas, then making your own gifts is a pretty good solution. And if the gift is edible, well that’s even better! Last year I made pretty little jam cookies for a few friends, and it was a big hit!
