Spread good cheer with a Christmas goodie bag

And fill the distance between each other
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

If you're missing your friends this year, or you've developed a close relationship with your neighbour or the family down the street, it's a lovely gesture to honour old friendships and new with a Christmas goodie bag. Fill it with love, affection and thoughtfully-chosen festive treats, then leave it on their doorstep. With Christmas still probably not looking entirely like it used to this year, it's the perfect (and safe) way to show you care and fill the distance

A meaningful miniature bouquet

Perhaps you have a gorgeous Christmas bouquet as a centerpiece in your house. Share the Christmas spirit to your friends with miniature, buttonhole-style arrangements with the same flowers and foliage. Or, you can give flowers that match the receiver of the gift. D that by drawing on the meanings of the flowers themselves: roses mean something different to gerberas, for example. Dive into the language of flowers and you'll find there's always a bloom to pair with a friend.

Keeping memories

In the spirit of practical gifts, it's a nice touch to give friends a small notebook and pen. That way, they can start writing down their resolutions for the New Year, and make a note of who to send thank-you cards to and what present they gave.

Sweet tooth

There are always plenty of homemade sweet treats going round at Christmas time. Give your friends a box of homemade biscuits, or a slice of the decadent red velvet cake that they've been admiring on your Instagram, all wrapped up in a festive red and gold napkin.

BRIGHT SPOT 

If you have some budget left, add a wonderfully scented candle to the Christmas package - because we can all use a little extra light during the dark days of winter.
