I honestly admit I appreciate Christmas more since I’ve lived in Europe. Visiting Paris for winter holiday has been our annual end of the year tradition. However, this year for the first time I enjoyed the Christmassy feeling for the whole season. As early as it started from December and lasted for a few weeks after the holiday season was over. Festive vibe is in full swing and you can definitely see it from holiday decorations, lights and people carrying their Christmas tree home. Check out this ‘Christmas in Paris’ post to discover my fave Instagramable spots this holiday season.
Every year I love finding new ways to stylise my holiday presents. I thought this time it would be so much fun to make my own gift wrap. This means you have full creativity for something that’s entirely up to you. Thinking of creative ways to nail my festive wrapping and getting all craft supplies are all lined up ahead. Make sure stocking some plain paper rolls like a simple brown paper which can be easily turned into a beautiful gift. I wanted the gifts to be personal and unique, so every one of them is wrapped and styled differently.
The holiday season has started and that means gifting planning! Christmas isn’t that far anymore and you have a full list upcoming dinner invitations, a family lunch, Christmas feast with colleagues or girlfriends, or invitations from neighbours at their houses and you always ask yourself what to bring as a gift. A good bottle of wine always works but it might seem too generic…? Come on, you want to bring up the festive mood in the party! I came up with this holiday gift basket that is easy to create and filled with festive goodies that everyone love. The thoughtful gift that doesn’t cost a fortune because you can make it your own!
Christmas is just a few weeks away. Have you done with your Christmas shopping? I’m nearly there just ticking off a couple more presents off my shopping list. We all have a stack of presents ready to wrap. I like to get this done as early as possible, just because I love to put them together and display them out- next to the chimney or stacking under the Christmas tree. Who doesn’t love all beautifully packaged presents at home? It stays there nicely until the day of Christmas. Read more
It’s Holiday Card time! Every year I always make my own card and send over to my families, friends and colleagues. It’s more practical since I have families in my hometown and friends across the countries and I want to make sure to share some Christmas wishes with them. There’s nothing quite like a hand painted and brush lettering Christmas card with a personal message inside, so check out my collection of holiday cards this year!
