With so much emphasis on home-made foodies and home décor, it doesn’t surprise me in the least that they think this festive season is set to be the great big ‘home-made’ Chrsitmas.
Lots of us are having a go at home-made chutney’s, jams, biscuits and making knitted tea cosies and home-sewn garments.
I must admit I have been very influenced by all things vintage this year (hence the blog) which has a lot of home-made products. I have already made my own Christmas cards and plan to try some fudge, chocolate and mint creams.
With an abundance of beautiful box’s and jars available to choose from in vintage, retro, modern, whatever your style you will find it somewhere.
And, with jam thermometer sales up by 62% at John Lewis, I wouldn’t be in the least bit surprised if I receive one from a friend.
I actually love it, especially making something this special for friends and families.
