I was in the coffee shop the other day, where I just happened to be in the right proximity to hear the conversation of two lovely ladies. The subject of the day for them was 'the nightmare of Christmas shopping', as you would expect this time of year.
I would hear all sort of valid points :
"I just don't know what to get this year...he just buys everything he needs through the year and there is no more room for anticipation, wishing, dreaming and waiting for Christmas to get something special"
"it looks like I will have to buy the same toys I bought last year"
"why all shops sell the same stuff..."
"there is just not enough excitement anymore"
And then I heard something that was worth waiting for: "You know, I believe there are two gifts that can never let you down - a book and a scarf. I know nowadays hardly anyone reading real books, but the scarf is perfect present" - there you go, the wisdom of century gift-giving and Christmas shopping in one short conversation.
If you think about it, the scarf is a very important accessory for Brits...and not just women, but men as well. Invented by Romans with the purpose to keep owner clean, we gave this simple garment so much more purpose: we were it to keep ourselves warm, we wear it for a statement, we wear it on the bag and backpack, we wear it on the wrist and neck, as a hairband and pocket accessory. And this is just a brief list of what scarf is capable of.
The most important fact is that like with shoes or bags, there can never be too many scarves! So for those of you who struggle with Christmas gift ideas like I do, because of our consumeristic lifestyle that just keeps pushing us to the edge, feel free to use this idea and give someone you love a scarf for Christmas. Make it special: buy silk or cashmere, made in France or Italy ...or to make your life even easier, browse our fantastic range of scarves - it won't disappoint you!
