Sunday Faves December 8th

Homemade Christmas Decorations

Another week and still no decorations in our house. Unlike many people this year I have always been a 2 weekends before Christmas kind of girl. It has nothing to do with me not liking Christmas, I love the holiday season. No, it is more to do with the little space we have and this year, the fact we have 2 kittens/cats who are no doubt going to wreak it once it is up.

Coming this week on the site is a round-up of some of my favourite homemade decorations. I was hoping to create some tutorials myself but work, freelancing, and the family have all taken precedence.

On to this week’s faves…

All wrapped up

Sustainable Wrapping

Last week I shared a post about different wrapping ideas and how to regift items as well as stories. Well during my reading time this past week, I stumbled across another sustainable wrapping post from the beautiful site that is Homes To Love.

This post shares 7 different styles of sustainable and stylish wrapping ideas including fabric and baubles!

Eco Gifting

Eco stocking stuffers

Another post I want to do for here in the UK but again we’ll have to see if I have time! So, as inspiration for all of you looking for eco gifts to give this festive season, Going Zero Waste has shared 40 stocking stuffers.

This is a gift guide based in the US, but I still wanted to share it as it has some amazing ideas of gifts you can give and you will no doubt be able to find here in the UK too.

Mocktails

I love this time of year but for many, the free-flowing alcohol can be a big issue. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a glass or two at least once a week but I haven’t been a big drinker since I’ve had the children.

Last New Year’s Eve I did go a bit overboard and it reminded me why I no longer drink like that! So, if you’re like me and are looking for some alcohol-free drinks this festive season, then this delicious sounding root beer recipe from Backyard Patch Herbal may be perfect.

Have a great week…
