more mist is rolling in now; we're on the run-up to Christmas and evenings are smoky grey whilst mornings are gauzy white. I've been posting festivities on my instagram: ellievelyn .. making wintry foods, decorating the house, making cards and wrapping presents- all good things. though I love the 'feeling' of this time of year and enjoy seeing family and friends, making wreaths, eating and making rich, spiced foods and walks in the woods next to our home, I am completely against the materialistic excess which plagues this holiday. I can't express enough how important it is to think more rationally not just about our own christmas wish-list's but about our present-giving habits: I am all for a joke at any time of the year but expensive and useless novelty gifts frustrate me as do any presents that will be used on the day and then thrown away. if you need to give a gift, but have little money and don't know what to give food or drink is always a good option; as it's sure to go to use! or a charity gift card if that is something you think you're friend/family member would like. make tiny christmas cakes, melt some chocolate, pour in discs and sprinkle with seeds/dried fruits/nuts then package in little bags, dip dried fruit in chocolate or make sloe gin! these are all affordable yet thoughtful ideas for gifting at Christmas time without exploiting foreign workforces or wasting your own money.
