It’s fucking amazing getting a present which has been made JUST FOR YOU.
In the next 14 days, you’ve probably got plenty to time to make at least two things which someone in your life will appreciate for ever and ever. (Mince pies with heart shapes for Mum: 40 minutes. A cute little poem for your best friend: 60 minutes during a few journeys to work.)
The great thing about making stuff is that, even if it’s shit, it shows thought and care; and since we all want to be especially loved WAY more than we want more stuff, you can’t really go wrong.
