It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Posted on October 10 2017

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. – Burton Hills

It might seem a little crazy to be thinking about Christmas, but it’s already October! Where has the year gone?

Christmas is a special time to be with the people we love dearly, our family and close friends. It’s also a time to fondly remember those we have lost or who live far away.

It’s an opportunity to make memories and reflect on the year. A time to eat, drink and be merry.

Christmas is also a time for traditions.

As children, we write heartfelt letters to Santa and leave out carrots for his reindeer. We hang our stockings and pillowcases in anticipation and stand on stools at the kitchen bench to help with Christmas baking.

As adults, we see the magic of Christmas through the eyes of our children; the delight of unwrapping gifts, gazing at Christmas windows, and singing along to carols.

As we close the page on the year ending, our hearts are stirred with love and hope. It is truly a season of wonder and joy.

A favourite tradition for many families is the decorating of the Christmas tree. There is something so special about coming together as a family, rediscovering ornaments collected over the years and recalling the origin of each one.

Whether you’re celebrating long-standing traditions or establishing new ones, we can help you preserve your precious memories or add some sparkle to your Christmas celebrations during the festive season.

Our beautiful Christmas wreath decorations will warmly welcome your guests, while our range of personalised ornaments will bring your tree to life.

Nothing says ‘Baby’s first Christmas’ like a precious picture with a milestone card, or gets you in the festive mood like a mirrored cake topper for your Christmas pud.

However you’re spending Christmas this year, we’d love to help with your memory-making.
