The past few days have been very busy. I was busy with organizing, wrapping and labeling the gifts to be given starting tomorrow. I have too many people to give presents to in my line of work. Including family, friends and co-workers, the total for all their gifts is a staggering 162. I asked the help of 2 other people to complete my wrapping and labeling of the gifts. Now the next step is delivering the gifts to them. And for that, I need my car. My car now looks like Santa's sleigh.

For this year, I bought half of my gifts from Human Nature. I really like their products and what their company believes in. They are pro-poor, pro-Philippines and pro-environment. I want to spread their advocacies, hence the gift packs from them. Besides, their price range is just right. For next year, I'm thinking of buying from Messy Bessy, another environment-friendly line that's made in the Philippines.

To depart from the usual run-of-the-mill Christmas wrapping paper, I decided to buy a few packs of pattern paper (manila paper with pin-stripes) to use as wrapping paper. A roll of thick red ribbon did the trick in making the paper become Christmas-y.

These are the things that have kept me busy for the past few days (well, aside from work). I hope you're enjoying the Christmas season so far. Talk to you guys later. Thank you very much for reading!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in advance...Happy holidays and Season's greetings too!
