It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas - The Gallery

The 1st December every year the tree and decorations go up. It's like a tradition and happens regardless of what day of the week it is. Before December begins I don't really acknowledge that Christmas is so close bar picking up the odd gift here and there when I see it, I always think that the longer the build up the more impatient the Mini Mes will become and the less special the event feels!

However, now it is December I'm starting to get quite excited! I always take great pride in wrapping and I adore these beautiful gift wrap sets I picked up - funky festive brights...



I actually enjoy wrapping items and trying to present them beautifully regardless of getting tape and bows stuck pretty much everywhere. It's the giving part I really like and seeing people smile when they open something special that I have selected for them. I try to alter the colour scheme each year and these years is teal and fuschia to match the tree with some cute owls too.


The theme this week is 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.'

  2. Love the idea of matching paper. Ours is always a mix of this year's and last year's.

  3. Hubby will not even mention the 'C' word until December arrives. We don't do the tree until mid month. I can't cope with the dust! Have a great one!

  4. Gorgeous bright and funky wrap :) I can't believe the tree matches it! Do you change them every year? We bring out the same old tat every year!

  10. The matching wrapping paper is adorable! But I am not really gifted when it comes to wrapping gits (see what I did there :D?) so I usually go with bags...I know it makes half the excitement about the gift but I am hopeless in all manual issues. :(

  12. I love co-ordinating my wrapping and take great pleasure in it too, this year I'm going for gold and red and can't wait to settle down with a Bailey's and Love, Actually on Christmas Eve.
