Even if you think you have been given the worst present in the world, it isn’t fair to make the giver feel bad about it. To avoid causing any offence this Christmas, we’ve come up with some alternative ways to respond to such a gift. Of course, there are times you can tell in advance when a gift is not up to expectation…
Perhaps one of the most stressful things about this time of year isn’t just deciding what gift to get for everyone but of course, the budgeting! While it’s important to stick to your limits and save where you can, you also don’t want to be a Scrooge and underspend either.
At the RLD Christmas Workshop, we’re #MakingMemories for all sorts of price ranges. We’ve rounded up a variety of different options for you to choose from, and we’ve divvied them up into three price brackets so you won’t break the bank (and maybe even have some cash left over for New Year too!)
So whether you use it as a wish list, a shopping list or just to gather some ‘giftspiration’ in general, take a look at these options.

As it’s #FlashbackFriday, we thought it would be interesting to take a look back at Christmas through the ages and see just how things change as the years go by.
We’ve delved into the depths of the archives and found some photos from way back when, as well as looking into our own personal photo albums and finding some that are perhaps not quite as historic, but just as classic.
Take a look, these photos pretty much speak for themselves!
When this question was discussed here in the RLD offices, the word that was most used was memories. It seems that for us, the most valued part of the Christmas season is #making memories with family and friends – and the stories that are re-told.
We’ve all been there. Excitedly unwrapping a Christmas present before opening it up and feeling truly disappointed. Although we agree that it’s the thought that counts, some people are simply bad shoppers so there’s no harm in telling them what you’d like most.
We thought we’d help you make your own memories this year by giving you this handy guide to creating ‘We Three King’s’ style crowns for your Christmas table settings. Not only will it enhance the seasonal spirit when you sit down for Christmas dinner, but it also makes for a cheap addition to the table décor.
