Christmas is just around the corner and it is time to get into that festive spirit. I love the Christmas holiday and enjoy doing all the festive things.
I love gifting all year around for birthdays, anniversaries, well done or get well soon gifts. But, Christmas makes gifts that much more magical. I like to be organised and start buying my gifts before the start of December.
