We all get writer's block from time to time but we probably feel it the most at Christmas when faced with a pile of cards we need to get written and popped in the post before its too late. If you're anything like me, it will be the job you keep putting off in the run up to Christmas. Stumped with what to say, wanting to be original, heartfelt, sincere and at times cheeky, one card can be hard enough but at Christmas the task can seem overwhelming.
For many, Christmas is all about the giving of gifts, the tradition of course originating from the Bible, when three wise men presented gifts to the baby Jesus.
The only Christmas gift delivered on the same day
According to William Hansen (the UK's leading expert and consultant in etiquette and protocol), if you are going to someone’s house because they are entertaining you for lunch, you should ideally take them something as well as a Christmas present - a hostess gift. A box of chocolates or some flowers would be perfect.
Introducing our new 2012 Christmas Flower Collection – with Christmas bouquets, plants and arrangements to suit all budgets and tastes, we’re sure you’ll find something they’ll love at a price you can afford.
Not all employees at eFlorist HQ are florists, some of us (me included) are new to the art. So when 7 places were up for auction for employees to take part in an in-house floristry school (in aid of the BBC's Children In Need appeal), we jumped at the chance of having a go.
At eFlorist we love our jobs, believe in what we do and are proud of the products and service we provide to the public. So much so in fact that some of our employees felt compelled to write, produce and create a Christmas song, under their own steam and in their own time.
Have you been invited to a Christmas party or for dinner on the day itself this year? Not sure what to take the host? Instead of the usual bottle of wine or box of chocolates, how about taking a bouquet of flowers in appreciation for all their hard work and planning, or a floral centre piece such as a candle arrangement for the table?
