Find Out About Friday - How to Simplify Your Christmas Shopping

Now that December is here, many people’s thoughts turn to Christmas Shopping – a thought that fills some people with dread and others with excitement!  With everything else that goes on in December I know a lot of you are looking for way’s to simplify your Christmas Shopping and today I am going to share three ways that Feeling Crafty can help you get the perfect gift for your friends and family, those who craft as well as those who have not yet discovered crafting!
Simplify Your Christmas Shopping

Gift Vouchers
  • Ideal for your crafting friends – what could be better than a shopping spree in the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalogue?  There are lots of wonderful products for them to choose from with even more due to be announced in January!  Or the chance to attend a class and learn new techniques?
  • Ideal for not yet crafters, since the vouchers can be used for classes your friends can discover the wonderful worlds of card making or scrapbooking with an experienced tutor

Gift Vouchers come in a hand made card with full instructions on how to redeem them.  To guarantee delivery before Christmas orders must be received before 10 December.  Gift Vouchers ordered after that time will be delivered electronically to ensure they arrive before 25 December.

To order your gift vouchers email

Wish Lists

Maybe you want an actual gift to give on the big day – well we can make that happen too!  Encourage your friends to join in with my Wish List Service – they just tell me what is on their wish list, you let me know how much you want to spend and then I will make the magic happen.  

All wish list orders must be received before 10 December to guarantee delivery in time for Christmas.  You will also receive a hand made gift tag to go with the present.  If you are able to collect the goodies from me I will also wrap them for you.

While you are at it why not set up a Wish List for yourself – that way when people ask what you want for Christmas all you have to do is give them my number and on Christmas morning you will be unwrapping something that you really want! Yep, no more pretending to be thrilled with novelty socks! 

I don't know about you but I feel very awkward when someone asks what I want for Christmas - I don't want to ask for things that cost more than they want to spend and I want to ask for things they can get easily.  Having a wish list with me will take that awkward feeling away and ensure your friends know how to get just the right thing within their budget.

Gift Wrapping Class
OK so this one is not strictly about the shopping but that is only part of getting the perfect gift - it has to be presented right too!  

So if you already have some of your gifts – well done!  Now is the time to get crafty as you wrap them – why not join one of the Feeling Crafty Wrap Up Christmas Classes and make a selection of bags, boxes and tags to make sure your gift looks wonderful under the tree and the recipient knows just how much you care.  Details are here but places are filling fast so please let me know as soon as possible if you want to attend.  To book your place email

Shopping this way will help you give the perfect gift without ever having to fight your way through the Christmas Crush – taking advantage of one of these services can really help you simplify your Christmas Shopping
