The first Christmas event of the year and it was for a personal favourite of mine, Moonpig! Moonpig are my go-to last minute card creators, and also the ideal company for personalised Christmas gifts!
The event was held at the beautifully styled, festive Revolution Leeds Electric Press. It was a fabulous day of festive activities to get us in the mood for Christmas!
The day started by being greeted with mulled wine and a chat about the Moonpig brand. We then went about our day of Christmas crafts and finding out more about the personalised Christmas gifts that Moonpig had to offer.
We are born to care for one another…Moonpig
In our fast-paced, always-on digital world, being caring gets lost.
We’re hungry for the love that comes from caring and sharing in
Santa Sack Design
I love getting creative and found wreath decorating a nice, simple way to relax. It definitely made me think about decorating the home ready for Christmas. I currently have my wreath propped against the fireplace and it looks so nice and Christmassy already here!
We used a Photo Booth with Christmas props to make our own cards! I love the photo options on the Moonpig.com (bet you have the tune in your head already!). I have used the service loads of times to add a personal touch to cards. It’s also perfect for last minute cards or for anybody who can’t get out to send them as you can send them directly to the recipient with your message in.
I can’t show my card here as it’s for somebody who might read the post, but there’s a great selection to choose from online. You can change the text, add photos, write your message inside while online, or have it delivered to yourself to write in it first.
Christmas Cocktails & Catering
Revolution Leeds Electric Press was a great venue for the event as we had a separate section to ourselves with our very own bar! We had a chance to make our own Christmas cocktails with the very patient barman! Adding candy canes to a cocktail makes it instantly Christmassy and I think I’ll be doing this all Christmas!
The venue itself, as well as the bar, was beautifully decorated with quirky decorations and plenty of Christmas inspiration. It’s the perfect place for some cocktails and dancing with he girls!
The Christmas buffet provides idea by Revolution was the perfect selection of indulgent, healthy and specialist foods for allergies and vegans (hot and cold) so that everybody could enjoy it. It the perfect venue for a Christmas party with your colleagues or friends, so if you’re organising one, it’s worth a look.
Each dish was presented on the stylish shelving that we now all want, with labels that were a great touch, advising people with allergies or food preferences.
Personalised Christmas Gifts
Moonpig, as mentioned, is one of my go-to places for sending birthday cards and gifts, but I have never really thought about personalised Christmas gifts on there. This event has reminded me of how great a personalised gift can make someone feel. It’s easy on the Moonpig website as they have some great gift ideas to add to your order too.
We were lucky enough to receive a tote bag full of gifts, including:
Moonpig is the perfect one-stop shop for personalised Christmas gifts. The quality of each and every one is really impressive so I have no trouble recommending it!
The best part of Christmas is the people you’re with, which this event really focused on. Moonpig wants to encourage people to enjoy Christmas for the right reasons and knows that we are all #MerrierTogether. It was great to catch up with people, talk to new people and all while having a fun and activity-filled day!
There’s also a great Christmas offer at Moonpig!
