So today it is exactly 8 weeks until Christmas!  WAHOOOO!  And I am very proud to say I have purchased and wrapped nearly half of my presents!  I know Christmas is a time for giving and receiving but for me its all about the giving.  I get such satisfaction from choosing each persons presents and then carefully wrapping them in festive coloured ribbon. 
 
Being a student, as per, I am doing everything on a budget, from the gift tags to the ribbon, my plan was to save as much money as possible so I had more to spend on peoples presents.  I found Poundland did a lovely range of matching gift wrap which I was over the moon with as, of course, each item only cost £1!  I have found the products good high quality with a sufficient length of ribbon on the reel of cardboard, so none of this running out of ribbon half way through wrapping up malarkey!

Which type of person are you, the leaving it until the 24th December to buy presents type or the super organised "forget Halloween, Christmas is coming!" person?  Let me know in the comments below and keep your eyes peeled for more festive posts!
