We get them every year. they either allow for a bit of of pre-Christmas relief (read as ‘howls of laughter’), or you’re so thankful that our own family isn’t that bad, after all…
I’m referring to those round-Robin Christmas letters. The ones where you find out that:
Hector, aged three has graduated from Bambino Francais and is almost fluent in Mandarin.
Cordelia, aged nine, has received unconditional offers from the top three independent schools in the country…with a scholarship.
You’ll learn that the family have moved to a new home, where they have a little bit more room (two extra bedrooms , a granny flat, stables and a couple of acres at the back), so they’d love you and your family to come over and visit.
The family have also been fortunate to have had two short getaways this year – skiing in February and three weeks all-inclusive in the Maldives.
So, what would you buy for the family who appears to have everything?
Their very own personalised Christmas Cake topper, from www.notonthehighstreet.com Or better still, buy one for you and yours and add it to the top of your own home-made Christmas cake…You’re bound to be one-up on them with this one.
