I know there's still 34 days until Christmas, but I've started to get excited already. I get wary when this happens. Often I'll be so excited for the first couple of weeks of December, then the closer it gets, the more my excitement seems to fizzle out. I'm hoping this won't happen this year though. I bought my wrapping paper on Sunday. I'm incredibly picky when it comes to wrapping, it's one of my favourite things about Christmas, and each year I have to decide on a theme and I really go all out. Last year it was traditional brown paper, green/gold/red ribbon, then decorated with various tree decorations. I also used little photo frame decorations for my friends, each with a picture of them and I in it. So yes, I really go all out with my wrapping. This year it's brown paper with red dots, green and red silky ribbon, and the rest is to be decided.
John Lewis does some of the nicest Christmas stuff, though some of it is a little pricey. I also had a look at the Paperchase and Urban Outfitters Christmas collections which also have some great pieces. I get far too excited about home-ware in general, so when you throw Christmas into the equation, I'm in my element.
For now, I just need to try and not get too excited before it's even December, I just can't seem to help it.
