Today I felt like sharing some of the movies that most make me feel Christmassy. Throughout my life I have seen various films over and over again that have had that festive vibe. In the last few years a few cheeky additions have snuck in too.
So let me know if you agree with any of these or you have your own movies that relate to Christmas joy.
Here goes… (in no particular order)
1) Home Alone 2
2) Mart Poppins (the stuff of legends)
3) The Snowman (short but sweet and anthemic)
4) Santa Claus: The Movie (the one with Dudley Moore)
5) Office Christmas Party (because of Jennifer Aniston)
AD – I was gifted some personalised bottles of Prosecco in return for an honest review.
When it comes to alcohol I am very picky. I love JD and coke and the odd glass of Baileys (especially in winter), but the one thing that always tempts me is Prosecco. I drink Prosecco on holiday, at parties and, in particular, at Christmas time. So when @saywithchampers invited me to try their very personalised bottles of bubbly, I immediately felt this was the right fit for me and my blog.
As well as labelling gifts for birthdays, weddings and graduations, SayItWithChampers offers bespoke designs for any occasion. Their website is easily accessible and also contains a blog which highlights seasonal wines, ideas for customising bottles and general info about bubbly.
As the season of goodwill approaches, I am always looking for gifts to buy my colleagues and small bottles of wine are perfect alongside chocolates or candles, so I was delighted to get to check out some Christmas Prosecco mini-bottles. They arrived in small boxes separately, with just a basic plastic wrap, so the packaging can easily be recycled. When I saw them, I instantly thought ‘Christmas starts right now.’
Wine For Any Occasion
To add to this, I was lucky enough to receive a birthday bottle which I chose the inscription for, having decided to give it to my mum for her upcoming celebration. They had the capacity to write up to five short lines of inscription so I put,
have a tipple,
And a giggle
Lots of Love.’
Despite being a writer, I am not always hugely inventive when it comes to messages but I felt that this squeezed a little humour into it. The freedom to write whatever you want is a big selling point when it comes to personalised gifts.
I support SayItWithChampers because their gifts are affordable, personalised and they are a relatively local business based in East Anglia. I totally recommend checking out their website and blog to cast your eyes over some of the intriguing, fun and incredibly special Christmas, birthday and ‘any occasion’ bottles of wine.
