It’s that time of year again, when decorations start going up, radio stations start playing festive tunes, and, despite having 365 days’ notice, we all start stressing and scrambling to get our Christmas shopping done on time!
This habit of leaving everything to the last minute is even worse when you consider that Christmas gift-giving is an ancient Christian tradition, tied to the story of the three wise men, who gifted gold, frankincense and myrrh to Jesus upon his birth. You would’ve thought that, by now, we would’ve learned to plan ahead.
As with everything this year, gift-giving is going to be a little different, with most countries still in the grip of a global pandemic. Walking around the local mall scoping out gifts will be replaced for many by traipsing through endless websites. That’s where local brands like us come in.
