It’s post-Halloween season (so sad it’s over as usual) so I guess it’s time to talk about Christmas!
Moonpig hosted a Christmas event at Revolution in Leeds, complete with mulled wine, tinsel
Instead of boring you with too many details here’s a quick round-up of the activities we did, and some ideas for doing them at home too! On an unrelated note… isn’t Moonpig just a satisfying word to say?
Christmas Wreath Making
Christmas wreaths, a seasonal staple! I’ve never attempted to make one or even thought to get one so this was a first. It was surprisingly… maybe not easy… but I reckon anyone could get their head around it! Once I stopped swearing at my bow it went pretty well.
If you wanted to do this at home, you need the straw-wreath, ribbon of your choice, some fake fauna, florists wire
Santa Sack Decorating
Santa is on his way to town I hear. I asked him to play my bills but still waiting to hear back… Anyway, we got to decorate Santa sacks, a sweet idea for the festive period, especially if you have kids or a cat like me (he likes gifts).
If you wanna give this a go – it’s pretty easy! Make sure you get some fabric-marker pens so your design doesn’t fade away, and grab yourself a sack. Be as creative as you want – stencils are a great shout. It’s easy and a lot of fun!
On the day we made two cocktails, a Strawberry Mojito and a Pornstar Martini. Below is a quick recipe for the former from my

Custom Chrimbo Cards
We are doing our small part to create a world where caring flows from person to person, making moments meaningful and making the world a little brighter.
You really can’t beat a good card! At the event, we headed over to the photobooth, took some pics, then we chose a card and got it printed! It came in a day or two and I now have a lovely Christmas card with my face on that I’m not too sure what to do with… (from me to me?!). To make it more special, Moonpig threw in a custom mug! There’s something to be said about getting something
This is a really good gift idea if you’re after a last minute gift. I tested the Moonpig delivery-speediness (without meaning too) after I broke my first mug (mostly my cats fault) and they had sent a new one before I could blink!
If you’re thinking about it, head over to Moonpig & check out the deals!
There’s 50% off any 5 cards or more or 20% off when you buy a card and a gift together. You know I love me a bargain!
