Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

It's almost Christmas!!

It doesn't really feel like Christmas Eve, it seems that Christmas has sneaked up so fast this year.
This evening I will be doing the last touches of gift wrapping, playing with the cats, watching Christmas episodes of Friends and drinking lots of Chococinos.
Oliver's parents house always looks stunning at Christmas and this year they have the most amazing real Christmas tree which smells like a magical winter forest.

Sunny the Ragdoll kitten loves Christmas because there are lots of shiny decorations to play with.
 Which also means that he tires himself out and then falls asleep on me and pretty much everywhere around the house.

Wrapping Presents

I'm really not very good at wrapping presents and in all honesty and I usually get bored after doing one or two. I've tried to keep myself a little more excited about wrapping by buying some nice wrapping paper on a budget.
The roll of paper below is from Paper Chase and has a really nice crafty look to it.

I bought the name tags from Poundland, they came in a really nice set of 36 cards with 4 different designs and all for a £1! Bargain.

The Blue and Red Polka dot paper are from Primark and I think they were only £1 or £1.50 a roll.
I also bough three single sheets of wrapping paper as I absolutely fell in love with the Blue Sheep textured paper from Clintons, plus they had a buy one get one free deal so I just couldn't say no...

The other sheet I chose was the cat printed one below because, well it has cats on it!
I can't take credit of the packaging for this one.
We bought some hand made natural soaps from the Leeds Corn Exchange Christmas craft market last weekend and the lady was kind enough to wrap it up for us. It took a lot of self control not to keep this for myself.

Another sheet of paper which I think is absolutely stunning is the Reindeer paper which I bought from the Dean Clough Gallery shop in Halifax.

How are you spending your Christmas Eve?

I hope it's lovely and cozy whatever you get up to! 

Merry Christmas!
