Hey! Did you know it is just over a month until Xmas? Did you know that working in the CBD can be a curse? I keep spotting gorgeous things right, left and centre in the shops. The Welshman has asked me to email him any suggestions for my Xmas wishlist. Here it is, honey!
Hopefully, you might find something pretty on my list to cross something for someone special off your list!
In our family, we send Xmas and birthday presents to January overseas in September to avoid paying double for airmail, so I’ve done all my Xmas shopping pretty much by the middle of the year. Yes, it is organised. Sickeningly so.
But it means that there are so many lovely things that just flood the shops at this time of year that would make perfect gifts – for me this time! Sometimes I’m lucky and snap up leftover bargains in January for my UK present list. When you have to pay postage on top of the parcel, a bargain is a very good idea.
This year, we’re going pretty low key on the Xmas present front. We’ve got a big US holiday planned for next year, where I plan to fill an entire suitcase with Sephora, NYDJs and other such American bargains.
