Christmas Markets & Events

Have you started Christmas shopping yet?


The nights are getting darker, the days colder and the shops are putting up their winter decorations. It must be that time of year; Christmas is coming.

Don’t you find people either love or hate Christmas? It’s one of those holidays that are physically and mentally draining but fun at the same time. Well, fun at least for the kids. For adults, it’s fun when the dinner’s over and the extended family go home. Sometimes the leadup to the big event is enough stress for one year. I guess that is where Christmas markets make it easier. Unique gifts all in one place, with activities such as ice skating for the kids and mulled wine for those who need a little persuasion to spend their free time shopping. It makes a family day out of a chore or it’s a change of scenery from shopping centres and highstreets.

Now that Christmas shopping is sorted, have you prepared for your Christmas work does, parties or business event? For fabric and silicone wristbands, please order at least 2 weeks before your event to ensure delivery as December weather can be quite temperamental.
