Christmas Posting

So where did the year go? Are you asking yourself the same question?

Christmas has just crept up on us all of a sudden, it’s Black Friday and presents are being bought, YIKS! Better get our skates on there’s so much to do.

There’s the perfect tree to find and decorate with all your old fav pretty decs and a few new ones you just couldn’t leave in the shop. Fairy lights to test before they’re put on the tree.. must make a note to remember this after last years disaster! Presents to buy, a cake to decorate, the perfect festive jumper to purchase (must be perfectly tasteful, perhaps a hint of metallic this year, has to say fun without being a monster) and cards to write and send.

Then the best bit, there’s the presents to wrap and here at HB this is our favourite part. OK so we’re stationery junkies but each year we love to share our Christmas gift wrapping theme ideas with each other. Will it be chic monochrome, elegant and simple pure white, moody, inky midnight blue, pretty metallics or perhaps a riot of festive colour explosion. Will there be pom poms, bells, baubles, hand made tags or a sprig of greenery?
