LITD ~ A Thing Like That Photography_0022

I have to start this post with a confession; my husband and I never exchange Valentine’s Day gifts, we write sweet words in a card and that’s about as far as it goes for us. Romantic huh?

Whilst I do not plan on suddenly breaking with tradition and hop-footing it to the nearest shop (well, I’m certainly not going to crack first) I have been thinking more and more about what I would buy if we were so inclined, plus, treating myself is never too far from my mind. So today’s post is a simple round up to help those who are in the throngs of the last minute gift buying or, if you deserve a ‘from me to me’ gift (well done you) then here are some ideas.

Simple and sweet

Somehow, and I really don’y know how, it’s that time of year again. Christmas is so very nearly upon us.

As I sing along to ‘Santa Baby’ and ‘fairytale of New York’ (best Christmas songs ever) here are some ideas to get your creative wrapping juices flowing. My absolute favourite idea has to be the gift boxes connected to the animals….ah-mazing, ingenious and awesome and one I will be storing and stealing for the future.

So from the simple to the extraordinary your wrapping needs are covered.

With so many free printables on the internet now for tags here is one of my favourite blogs with their awesome offering.
