Today I settled down to my Christmas gift list, sadly not a list of what I would like* (*If anyone would like me to write a list of what I would like I am more than happy to write one!) but a list of who I am buying for and what I am buying them. Over the years I have cut the list of who I buy gifts for down and with friends this year I have agreed “no gift exchange” with anyone that will agree it with me!
Armed with my honed list of who, mostly relatives, the gift selection begins. The reality is that the adults have everything they need / want, and then some. This makes finding a gift that delights harder every year. No one wants or needs more stuff do they? This year my gifting will mostly be consumable gifts – gifts that can be used, eaten, enjoyed etc.
With family all over the place, up in Northumberland, down in Brighton and many places in between, I need gifts that don’t cost as much again in postage and will arrive, last years delivery challenges for online orders have not been forgotten! Interflora is one of my favourite brands to work with and I’m delighted to be writing about their recently unveiled Christmas collection which has helped me out enormously.
It’s not Christmas without a hamper and Interflora have a great selection of Christmas hampers. Lots of treats to eat and the hampers are great looking storage afterwards for teddies, toys, blankets etc.
My mum always has poinsettia plants, I do too now, it’s an unwritten, unspoken tradition. A gift, even one to self, that lasts the whole festive season. I think Interflora’s outdoor barrel is a festive welcome by any front door, something to brighten the winter darkness, so much better than socks!
Let’s not forget the smooching flower, mistletoe! Send a party host a unique gift of mistletoe and get puckering up! There is free delivery on many lovely gifts including traditional wreaths, holly trees, candle displays so not sure what to get someone that has everything this year check out http://www.interflora.co.uk for some inspiration!
