More Xmas ideas: coffee and recyclable Xmas boxes for presents

This morning I popped by Sue and Dan for a coffee. While Dan was making it Sue showed me a photo in today's paper of a flat white (or was it a cappuccino?) with snow man and Xmas tree. I immediately moaned to Dan that I wanted it too, and guess what? He made it!! Of course all the girls at Sudan went ooohhh!! and we took photos! Are you good at decorating your coffee too?

And now another idea for an eco-Christmas. My friend Daniela gave me this set of Xmas boxes 2 years ago, they are made of cardboard and are very sturdy, plus they are beautiful, you don't need wrapping paper (just put a ribbon to secure them so that nobody peeps inside before Xmas), and all your presents under the tree will look stylish and professional!

The boxes come in different sizes so you can use them for a number of presents year after year after year... and to store them away, they all fit one inside the other like a Russian doll! Well, I think that this is a great idea, if you are keen on recycling!

  10. Bellissimo il cappuccino decorato e stupende le scatole, anche io amo inscatolare i regali, sono sempre più scenografici e con la velina che li circonda fanno tanto film americani!! ;)
