Look away now if you don't want to read about Christmas presents.
You see this post really should have appeared in December but the photos were on my old lap top.
I thought I would share even at this late, or extremely early depending on how you see it, stage as it may be useful to someone somewhere.
All gifts were placed inside this tin.
It doesn't have to be a tin, it could be a gift bag, but I had a conversation with said friend the Christmas before about our mutual love of Christmas tins and so that's why I chose it.
Inside the tin were a pair of white cute and cosy socks
a white chocolate face mask
a white and silver packaged box of smellies
a white fig and patchouli candle
and finally a packet of white chocolate jazzies.
Inside the tin I placed a piece of paper saying 'May All Your Christmases Be White'
After opening this gift I then gave my friend another gift. This was a bottle of red wine with a tag attached which she could read once unwrapped saying 'and if the white runs out, drink the red!'
The present was the result of seeing a quote on Pinterest which can be seen here on my Christmas board.
Of course the gift could have been one bottle of white and one bottle of red but I felt this selection of goodies was better suited to our friend.
I only came up with this idea late in 2014 but was pleased with the things I found and am hoping to find more during the course of this year and using this idea for another couple of friends come Christmas 2015.
