I know, I know, you’re thinking please don’t mention the
C-Word we haven’t really had a proper summer yet but, I can’t not tell you
about the fabulous press day Etsy held to showcase their Christmas lookbook.

Before I launch into all the exciting things coming up for
Christmas and you think I’ve turned into a one woman Christmas elf I want to
say how much I LOVE ETSY! I bought so many things from amazing different
sellers for my wedding I actually had to stop myself from going overboard.
So back to Christmas, it’s a time of year I really love, spending
time with family and friends and gift buying. I always find gift buying so
satisfying, spending time finding the perfect present for someone and then
seeing how happy (hopefully) they are when they open it. I really like to try
and find unique gifts for people which is where Etsy comes in!
Etsy’s Christmas in July event was combined with flower
arranging from the fabulous letterbox flower delivery service Bloom&Wild.
If you’ve not heard of these guys you have to check them out, I use them to
send flowers all the time. The flowers are always carefully packed and last so
long! Bloom and Wild are soon to launch their new posy party collection which
they let us unleash our creative skills and arrange our own. Flower arranging
is my new favourite thing!

The goodie bag I received from the day was so cute. To start
off you had to complete a Sugar magazine style flowchart to decide what ‘type
of mug’ you are. Mine was Trend-Dodger and the bag I was given corresponded
with your chosen mug. So what was in the bag I hear you yell? Well, a pack of
super cute pencils from Newton and
the Apple, a notebook for super-secret evil plans from Thriftbox,
and Etsy gift voucher and the coolest mug ever from We Are Paper Plane.
|Aren’t the pencils the coolest|
From the lookbook I’ve pulled together a few of my favourite
things which I think I’m going to *need* (obvs buy as gifts!)
|Gold drip mug £18|
|Grey sweatshirt with dove design £43|
|Customised Silver Bangle £42|
|Notebook with gold finishing £12.50|
|Gym Gin Water Bottle £13|
How early do you start your Christmas shopping? Are you a
super keenie and get it done early or are you a last minute Minnie and leave it
to Christmas Eve?
