New Year.. new beginnings, resolutions and expectations.

Loving the cycle of life, each day and each year we are offered  a new start, yesterday is behind us and we can now concentrate on the here and now. This reminds me of one of my favourite quotes:-

Yesterday is history

Tomorrow is a mystery

and today is a gift…which is why we call it the present.

This leads me nicely into our next big celebration, requiring thoughtful gift selection and beautiful wrapping to send a message of love …Valentines day. Wishing you all a little something, given with love to add sparkle to your evening. Book a table at the Dandelion & Burdock in the village Stock for the lovely lady in your life where you will be guaranteed an extra surprise to make the evening extra special.

It is so enjoyable how all our special days lead us onwards and provide renewed hope. Something Given is very excited getting 2017 off to a great start, developing new ideas and collecting a wonderful array of super talented UK designers to source our gifts from. New ribbons and wrapping paper to die for. We cannot wait to start wrapping with this beautiful double sided paper from Bespoke LETTERPRESS….
