Holiday Gift Guide 2017

A few cool things I have found whilst living and perusing the Internet. Some of these gifts excite me so much, but I don’t have anyone quite right people to give them too – please give someone theses gifts!

For the creative types:

With beginner and advanced patterns available it doesn’t matter if they have never embroidered before or if they helped make the Bayeux tapestry. Download one, and head to craft store to DIY a little kit!

I like to pick up a few and have them as back up birthday or Christmas gifts. So far the Dutch chocolate cookies are my favourite, but I am always a sucker for a biscuit to go with my tea.

 

For the friend who is more on trend than you:

For me this is about everyone… Again instagram is the perfect place to stalk out gifts!

Screen Shot 2017-12-06 at 10.11.49 PMGoldirock’s – Crystals: the modern guide to crystal healing. If your friends are on trend they are bound to be embracing the new age mainstream revival that is apparently happening. They will also then need to know how to heal themselves using crystals. Honestly this book is worth it just for the photos.

For the ecowarrior:

Even better make them some beeswax wraps for food storage! No more Clingfilm, only fantastic picnics and leftovers!
