Whether we like it or not Winter is coming, Christmas is near, and it's time to get cozy and busy preparing for the festivities. We have a tradition here in Denmark of Advent gift calendars - basically a gift each day for 24 days (we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve). I wrote about it here, and it was hard work getting 24 small gifts organised, and if I'm honest the gifts were quickly left in a corner - as they were 1$ gifts. So instead I have decided to give the girls a larger present on the Advent Sundays (we also celebrate the 4 Sunday leading up to Christmas - read more here) where I will give the girls a larger gift, that they can actually use. FERM living had me very excited when I spotted their new Christmas gift bags and wraps - not the usual red/green, but cool muted colours with a cool Scandinavian vibe. I will post the finished result later, but here are a few things to get you inspired. Do you give small advent gifts before Christmas where you are from, or is the present extravaganza on Christmas Day/Eve enough for you??
Ohh Hello Stationary lovers out there
Advent gift bags - 1-4 of them
This is what we would use for the 1-24 small gifts
