BLOGMAS #18 | Steve The Sprout

Hello Lovelies! 🙂 

I can’t believe it is christmas in just A WEEK! I don’t feel like it is Christmas that near.. possibly because for the previous 4 years of my life I have worked at Waitrose pretty much everyday until Christmas. Since I have my design internship I am not working in Waitrose everyday, just Sundays, and it is just so so weird! As busy Waitrose is at Christmas I do love the festive vibe the store has, it can get quite exciting, so it is odd to not be working there! But I am so excited to be able to spend Christmas Eve with my family because I don’t usually get to 🙂 🙂 

Anyway, back to the point of this post! Meet STEVE the sprout (I named him) 🙂 

Ahhhh maaaa god isn’t he the CUTEST sprout you have EVER seen. I never ever thought in my life I would call a sprout cute. I really really do not like them, but AWWWW Steve and his pals are so so cute! I went a little crazy with this range and decided to buy the wrapping paper, tags and also a pack of christmas cards too! I really like the design, you are a genius whoever designed this! The little santa hats and reindeers ears are so cute, as well as all the expressions the sprouts have, love the shocked one! (I apologise in advance for how many times I say cute in this blog post…) 

The range is for sale in a stationary store called Paperchase, I am not sure if this store is only in UK so apologies, but I guess you can just appreciate how CUTE HE IS. I absolutely adore Paperchase, I could definitely buy out the entire store…. Paperchase always have the most beautiful designs, graphic design heaven! But oh my, yesterday was so so unbearable in there 🙁 It is only a tiny little store, and as you can imagine at Christmas it is CRAZY! 

8 Pack Charity Christmas Cards

I got this pack for the people that I work with in my office, I am giving them to them tomorrow so I hope they like them 🙂 🙂  The cards are on 3 for 2, but I only needed one pack. I thought it was nice that 50p of my £3.50 purchase is given to charity. Paperchase’s chosen charity is Children with Cancer UK, a very worthy cause! 

The cute little tags! 5 pack for £1.50

The wrapping paper was £3.50 and also on 3 for 2! I wanted to make an effort this year whilst I have a job, I usually have to buy the cheapest I can find and it rips really badly when I am wrapping 🙁 

I have almost completed all my present shopping, just a few bits for the boyfriend and brothers left… So…. I best get wrapping!

Hope you enjoyed meeting Steve! 🙂 

Do you like sprouts? Any Paperchase fans out there? Will you be buying your own little Steve’s?

Thanks for reading, catch you tomorrow!

    Those are all so cute! I absolutely love sprouts and I'm one of the only ones, so it'd be awesome to wrap my presents in these! 🙂

    What a fantastic wrapping paper idea, and I love the tags! I always enjoy using wrapping paper and cards that are more original and funny, and this definitely fits in that bracket :). I haven't seen these around so I am going to have to go into my local Paperchase before Christmas and track Steve down.
