  • A little ingenuity and planning...

Tis the season for letter boxes overflowing with invitations; list upon list of gift ideas for family and friends. Ever attentive, you’ll surf the net for ideas and present your hosts this festive season with a sweet little something, no?

While a bottle of wine is always welcome, we think clever pairings are the way to go…one part DIY ingenuity and one part nifty gift. Each one is sure to score you a return invitation to every fabulous party and family gathering.

Giving of oneself and ones time feels good, and in a world often said to be divided between those who spend money in order to save time and those who spend time in order to save money, our time is still seen as the ultimate luxury. So, a little combined thinking, a theme and some knowledge of what’s on your doorstep can save time, money AND inspire an endless list of possibilities…
