Two things are certain.
1. Christmas is coming.
2. I like a theme when it comes to giving Christmas presents.
Last Christmas I compiled a gift for a friend of ours after seeing this picture on Pinterest.
The gift can be seen here.
Lots of 'white items' popped inside a vintage style tin.
I've gone for the same idea for two other friends this Christmas .
A couple of the gifts are the same - a Christmas spice candle, Galaxy white chocolate and a copy of Mystery In White- A Christmas Crime Story - but I've given each one things I know they'll like and use.
For my friend T there is a bottle of shower gel and tube of body lotion, a pair of cute socks and a pad of sticky notes.
My friend G has a different shower gel and a floral scarf
and a bottle of Winter hand sanitiser. This gift is for the friend who had the very cherry Christmas gift last year. She was thrilled with that and so I hope she likes this one as much.
Instead of a vintage tin I'm going to pop the items, apart from the book, inside the white Christmas tree shaped bowl. Once wrapped I'll attach a gift tag along the lines of 'may all your Christmases be white'.
The second part of the gift will be a pack of these Christmas patterned straws with an individual bottle of red wine. As per last year when this present is unwrapped they will find a tag attached to the bottle reading 'and when the white runs out enjoy the red!'
