There are two types of present-giver people in the world (according to my completely fabricated and unsupported scientific survey).
The first being, the smack-a-tenner-in-an-envelope-and-write-their-name-in-lipstick-because-you-can’t-find-a-pen-in-the-bottom-of-your-handbag type of person and secondly the Martha-Stewart-planned-for-months-and-wrapped-beautifully-even-know-where-the-reciept-is-in-case-they-need-to-exchange type of giver.
While embarrassingly I more often fall towards the first option I strive for more Martha Stewart type moments.

Admittedly, it is a nice touch to put that little bit more effort in.. Maybe keep it in mind for a rainy school holidays day?
Let us know how you go!
