Don’t even think about fancy schmancy imported gift wrap. Or cards that cost more than lunch. You don’t even need to put your foot inside the shops. Just look around and see what’s right under your nose, that you could use to make your presents look lovingly and artfully decorated to delight. Sometimes the box IS the gift. As in Hendrik and Inge’s eggbox filled with candles. The nicest thing about Christmas is the act of wrapping lots of presents with love and enjoyment. The wrapping, and the delight of receiving pressies wrapped with charm, is where the joy is.
