9 Christmas Gift Ideas you need to know about

Disclosure: I was not asked, paid or influenced in any way to write this post.  

Christmas snuck up on me this year.  I'd swear that Halloween was only last week.  I just can't keep up, and the days keep passing without a card written or a gift list begun.   I was all set to buy more boring stuff from the usual shops and then a chance post on Facebook reminded me of all the people I know who sell on-line.  And really, it would be a crime to keep them to myself.  So here are nine of my favourites:


Colorines


Very cute personalised hand painted mugs and more.

Castle Kelly Crafts


Cards and crochet from a mother and daughter team.  I've ordered the handmade cards in a last minute panic, and they always arrive in time.  But orders for crochet items are now closed for this Christmas.  Oh well, there's always next year.

  3. Oh my, they all looks so wonderful. I especially love the calender. Wish I could buy, however, our postal system is out of action and I don't know when it will up and running again!

    1. I can't believe that your postal system is out of action, that's desperate :(
