Gift Idea – Memories

Got a friend who’s got everything? Yes, we’ve all got one.

Give some memories:

For my room, I framed some tickets from some of my favourite concerts and put them on my wall in Ikea frames (=super cheap). 

If you and your friend have been somewhere memorable together, why not frame a momento of the day? Perhaps the receipt from a particularly delicious meal you ate together, a train ticket from a fun journey you had, or a flyer from an attraction you saw.

Route around your handbag. Unless you are one of those freakishly tidy handbag people you may find something worth framing!

Invites: Do it your ruddy self!

And so began our blog, with a short article on  saving money and the planet by eviting people – ahhh, memories. However, sometimes you just need to stick a stamp on it, and this is what we be doing for our humbug party!
