Ah, December… my favourite month!
I'm hoping for a little festive sparkle, bright but chilly mornings, perhaps a light fluttering of snow and plenty of much-loved traditions in the run up to the big day.
My husband's family run a brilliant secret santa system for presents. We are each allocated one person to buy for and a set budget. We all offer up suggestions on things we might like… it's a really simple way to avoid panic-buying random bits and pieces for each other.
I do like a bit of handmade Christmas gifting too… perhaps a hand-knitted or hand-sewn item or some festively wrapped sweet treats or preserves… simple makes that will only take an afternoon but will hopefully provide the recipient with plenty of Christmas cheer.
