Christmas Decorations ℅ The Christmas Boutique

The past few days have been spent putting together a Christmas tree, hanging festive decorations, buying Christmas presents and wrapping them up. So don’t ask me why I’m feeling super festive! This year I thought I’d mix things up a bit and instead of going for the usual wrapping paper, I’ve bought a stock of kraft paper, a cute little stamps set from Tiger, simple customizable tags and cute ribbons to put together a few gift-wrapping creative ideas! Hopefully these will inspire some of you too, especially if you’re looking for something simple and customizable for wrapping this year’s presents up!

I’ve picked up a big roll of kraft paper and the cutest little stamps from Tiger, which served me well to design my custom wrapping paper simply by stamping cute little forest animals and trees all over it, but I’m definitely after some more like these from Paperchase which are super festive! Also this simple brown gift tags are ideal for being customized – again I used the deer stamp to add a little something to it, and then wrote it up and pinned it to the present with the red and white twine which is definitely a Christmas staple!

I’ve bought this beautiful beige and red ribbon from a local supplies store but as much as I like it by itself, I do love mixing things up by combining different ribbons in different colours, though the ribbon + twine might be a winning combination too! I’ve cut them the same size, knotted them up at both ends and made the twine twist around the ribbon to add texture to the bow, then wrapped it up onto the present, and untied the ends! As simple as that, but it totally gives the bow a completely different character!

GET CREATIVE!

for their stockings ;

The Christmas Boutique kindly delighted me with the cutest Christmas decorations and packing solutions and I can’t deny I was short of stockings this year and that their Stockings and Gift Sacks are pretty much the cutest offerings so they were totally welcome! If you are looking for lovely packing ideas as well as cute tree or home Christmas decorations to spice your space up this year, you should definitely check their 3 for 2 out – as for me I can’t wait to put my gingerbread little guys and hearts on my tree!

A Very Christmassy Treats Box Giveaway!

A very Christmassy Treats Box Giveaway!
a christmas gift for you! ;

Everytime I think of this little blog of mine I feel so lucky to be able to do something so different, creative and special on a daily basis, but something even more special is being aware that there’s people out there that share my same passions, that like to talk and interact with me about all thing beauty, style, food, life related that I share on here, and that I can somehow inspire someone else and document everything I like about what I do with a smile on the face thinking of all your lovely comments and support I’ve received during these past few months! As cheesy as it sounds, a blog can’t be made only by a blogger, but there’s much more behind it and readers and comments are the biggest motivation for me to keep it going and it’s most probably thank to you, to the inspiring blogging and online world, that my creativity and inspiration stay always alive and I want and can share more and more contents over here!

I might sound sloppy at this moment, but the very first Christmas gift that I’ve put together this year is for you! It’s to say thank you once again, to share the Christmas spirit as well as to give you back a little something for all the times you have stopped by my blog, maybe just to have a quick look or to leave a lovely comments. You might remember my first Giveaway‘s prize was a box full of treats, well I thought to bring the Treats Box back but this time I’ve put together a rather Christmassy one, including festive stationery, a little Yankee Candle treat, together with a few beauty and style picks.
