it’s almost a month till christmas. and if your supermarkets are anything like ours, you’ve been bombarded with christmas music since october. if only they’d play this holiday album from target, filled with tunes from rad bands like wavves, best coast and coconut records amongst others. you’ll be able to download the songs for free on 28 november.
just had to show you the way my sister-in-law wrapped all the homemade stollen & cookies that she gave everyone at christmas (cut-out reindeer tags!):
ho-ho-ho-holy crap it’s christmas already!
(that’s me, obviously happy with my christmas loot)
i hope you have a lovely day, whether you’re in the snow or the sun… my christmas is going to consist of opening gifts sometime late morning (or rather, watching as my young nieces and nephews tear open their presents, and then ask if they can open mine too).
i’m thinking about christmas already. sigh. my family has instituted a one gift per person R100 limit (to combat the “meltdown“). i told them R100 is almost impossible, so i’m shooting for under 200 bucks. anything handmade is great to me, and anything i can order online is even better. if i can walk to a shop – wonderful, but that kind of limits you geographically & since i’m out in “the sticks” (as some might say) i welcome e-commerce with open arms (i’m also lazy). PLUS i’d also like to inject some christmas cheer into the south african postal service (i have faith!) – herewith my south african friendly online shopping gift guide
