One thing I can probably guarantee at Christmas time, is it usually involves at least one Secret Santa scheme, which I love.
We all know it’s already a far too expensive time, so any way to help save a few pennies, is good in my books.
After I’d bought my gift, I found I had spare cash left over, but not really enough to buy anything substantial. I was traipsing round Debenhams when I saw the old sweet shop jars they do. They look so tempting, but at £14 each, I was soon put off
Looking at them though, I thought I could actually recreate this myself. This way saves money and, let’s be honest, it’s always nicer to receive something that’s actually been thought through and given the personal touch.
To recreate, I used:
- A Kilner Jar- £2.79 TK Max
- A homemade label
I also decorated mine with a old broken bead necklace to give it a bit more of a glitzy charm.
I bought a few bags of sweets from the local shop, layered them and there you have it. So simple, and yet it looks such a lovely gift.
The good thing about this present also? 'Accidentally' buying too many sweets, so somehow they just find their way onto your desk... It's the gift that just keeps on giving.
