Consumable gifts and family time tips…

Been away so had a break from blogging but back now and thought I’d pop in a quick blog about the upcoming festivities – tips for giving presents and being with the family…

The rules for present giving are that they can be consumed or experienced. So to play safe always give food, drink, toiletries or experiences.

Food

Chocolates or biscuits are best. Even better, if you make them yourself. They are always welcome this time of year because most people give up the fitness plan for a few days and over indulge. I know I do!

Drink

We always buy 12 bottles of wine for some relatives and they do the same back. Bit daft, but at least the wine in something that will be drunk. Also, saves aimlessly wandering around wondering what to buy them.

Smellies

Anything like body cream, perfume of bubble bath is always useful and will be used throughout the year.

Experiences

In my humble opinion always give a simple experience rather than somewhere people have to travel miles to enjoy. Recently had a superb meal in a posh hotel nearby and it was a wonderful treat. Or something like cinema tokens is a good option. Be careful the person receiving the experience will enjoy it rather than endure it.

Other bits that are pleasant to receive are candles, purses, bags, scarves, earings and necklaces.  Men just like beer don’t they?

Have a fantastic few days and don’t forget my family time tips for enjoying yourself.

– No political discussions (haha)

– Play some games (or catch up on holiday photos)

– Worry less about your diet but…

– Get out for some long walks in the fresh air

Have a fabulous time everyone. Thank you to everyone who follows, likes and reads my blog. It is much appreciated.
