Christmas Gift Guide, Last Postage Dates and a Present for You!

Hello there lovely Buttoneers! It’s almost Christmaaaaaaas!! Okay…Okay….it is a while off yet but it is about time we all got our Christmas shopping heads on and got on with buying and wrapping and preparing for the holiday season. I was am definitely one of those (big) kids that ran runs around on Christmas morning like I have had too much coffee, waiting for everyone to get up because it is hands down, one of the best times of year. Anyone else still like this? Or are you a bit of a Scrooge until it is at least time for lunch? Or like my sister – until she is at least in her favourite Christmas jumper…and pyjama bottoms…and festive socks?…(Sorry Saree!)

These are so many of you lovelies here in my little creative corner of the blogosphere and over on my Instagram or Facebook page, that it makes my heart so full.

So many of you have become Buttoneers and followed the progress of my little creative biz, right from the start and some of you, especially my growing Instagram tribe, are really new and you are all fabulous!

This year, as Eliston Button grows and expands into new product lines and creative ideas, I wanted to create a little Christmas Gift Guide to show off all of the handmade goodness in the Eliston Button Etsy Shop as ideas for Holiday gifts and stocking fillers or even just to treat yourself.

For some of you, you may have seen some of it from the start and this will be a little refresher or reminder (Psst…there is a discount code coming up as a reward!) but for my new followers and friends, I would love to give you a big hug (or just give you a little nod in the right direction, if personal space is high up on your list) pass around the tea and biscuits and show you around the place.

I am so looking forward to sharing some of my favourites and can’t wait to hear all about yours too!
