Journaling Prompts to Help You Put Pen to Paper

As many of us adjust to life at home, away from our normal schedule and routine, and manage our way through what can only be described as one of the most challenging times the world has seen, it’s important to keep doing things that make us feel good and to look after ourselves, and each other (from a distance of course). And while there are many activities available to us, something the kikki.K team believes can help us through difficult times is simply putting pen to paper. Writing down whatever is on your mind.

Giving Gifts with a Personal Touch this Christmas

Christmas is all about loved ones, being grateful for each other and showing how much we care. From our family, friends, and colleagues we see every day, to our loved ones living far and wide, this is the time of year to show them just how much we love them. And what better way to do so than by gifting a heartfelt card or gift, and adding your own personal touches to make it truly unique? Here are some simple, yet beautiful ways you can personalise your gifting this festive season.

Choose gift wrapping to suit your recipient’s personality and style.

Consider: Are they minimal in their taste or do they love pops of colour and cuteness? Would they enjoy a little luxury in their gift-wrapping, or do they love the more traditional Christmas style? Giving a gift wrapped with the recipient in mind is a beautiful way to show that you’ve put thought into your gift-giving.

Write a heartfelt message in a card or gift tag and attach to your presents

Nothing says ‘I care’ more than a heartfelt, meaningful message at Christmas time. Take the time to write a personal note to everyone on your gift list and you’re sure to make their day. Whether you choose to use greeting cards, gift tags or even write directly onto your wrapping paper, you can’t go past a personal message when it comes to making someone feel loved.

 
Get crafty with your wrapping

For the creative types out there, Christmas is your time to shine! Choose papers, embellishments and stickers you love and experiment with all sorts of papercraft and DIY elements to use in your gift wrapping. If you’re looking for somewhere to start, you can’t go past our Ultimate Gift Wrapping Book and Paper Lover’s Books for all your DIY paper-crafting goodness.

Think outside the box when it comes to your wrapping materials

While paper and gift tags are a beautiful way to wrap your gifts, take a moment this year to think a little differently. Why not use gorgeous coordinating ribbon to attach a beautiful ornament to your gift (our Mini Baubles are just perfect for this!) or step out into the garden and pick some flowers and greenery to include in your wrapping as well? Perhaps you could use a gift bag rather than wrapping paper and include some of the recipient’s favourite flowers or treats in there as well as their gifts? It’s these simple yet unique touches that will make your gifts stand out, and show your recipient that you truly care.

Enjoy the feeling that comes from adding some personal touches to your gifts this year and love being a #giverofgood with our gorgeous cards, wrap and trim, available in store and online at kikki.K.
