Under the Christmas Tree – Last-Minute Gift Inspiration

There are two types of people on this Earth… those who do their Christmas shopping in advance, and those who don’t and wait until the very last minute, the very last week, to rush to the shops and buy whatever will do the trick.

My dad was an expert at last-minute Christmas shopping, and I am afraid my brother and I have inherited this from him…

 

However, we’ve always granted a lot of importance and meaning to what we offer to friends and family, which is why – when my presents are not handmade – the wonderful Internet is like my best buddy Christmas elf! 

In my letter to Santa this year, I ask for recovery, but I also ask for a lot of books, very British mugs for warm cups of tea, comfy sweaters, fruity fragrances, a Paul Marius backpack, more books, and loads of magical Harry Potter-themed goods. 

Il y a deux types de personnes sur cette planète… ceux qui font leurs courses de Noël en avance, et ceux pour qui ce n’est pas le cas et qui attendent la dernière minute, la dernière semaine, pour se ruer dans les magasins et acheter quoique ce soit qui puisse faire l’affaire. 

Mon papa était un expert des courses de Noël de dernière minute, et j’ai bien peur que mon frère et moi ayons hérité ça de lui… 

Cependant, nous avons toujours accordé beaucoup d’importance et de signification à ce que nous offrons à nos amis et à notre famille; c’est pourquoi – quand mes cadeaux ne sont pas faits à la main – le merveilleux Internet est mon meilleur ami lutin de Noël! 

Dans ma lettre au Père Noël cette année, je lui demande ma guérison, mais je lui demande aussi beaucoup de livres, des mugs très ‘British’ pour des tasses de thé bien chaudes, des sweats confortables, des parfums fruités, un sac à dos Paul Marius, encore des livres, et une tonne d’objets magiques sur le thème de Harry Potter.
