Christmas 2018 – 5 Great Personalised Books to Purchase
The glorious summer of 2018 will live long in the memory. The sun had completely forgotten its annual agreement to remain hidden behind gloomy clouds and beamed down in all its magnificence, as the nation soaked up the rays. Whilst the weather remains perky on the most part, we are now in September, meaning we all must face the inevitable: winter is coming.
As the nights draw in and the temperature cools, be cheered by the thought that with winter comes the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas is certainly the shot in the arm you need to remove those winter blues, but it can also bring its own stresses; one of the most prominent being what to purchase your loved ones that won’t immediately be put to one side with a half-hearted “oh thanks this is what I wanted”, whilst their fleeting smile fades quicker than the sun during the winter solstice.
