Christmas Gift | Rebecca Hawkes Branding
Hello and Hei! I am once again coming to you from a form of transport, this time I am writing to you from the air, somewhere over the sea between London and Oslo. I am on a flight that has wifi (hurrah!) BUT it is a busy flight and I think someone must be sucking it all up as it certainly sucks (boo!).
So as you might gather, I have been really busy getting everything done before Christmas. Travelling across the country and to other countries. I have however found time (or made time) to create little gifts for my British friends and colleagues with a distinct Norwegian feel.
I always love making up personal gifts for birthdays and holidays, as I think about what I would appreciate as a present and it never is, ‘how much money was spent’ but instead rests on the joyful feeling of having someone think of me. I got the idea for Norwegian themed gifts as a little tester of international Christmas dishes and drinks (one gifted to a Danish friend who I knew would appreciate a taste of Scandinavian home- Hi Anna!). I bought bottles from Scandinavian store Granit (love this place for basics in all black and white shades) and grabbed some Aquavit from duty free on the way over and set to work. I made Pepperkake from scratch and as a Graphics, I only saw fit to brand the packaging. If I had my own range this is how it would look! I also included under my graphics details of the product and on food gifts where ingredients need to be added, I included an ‘add’ list and recipe. For my Vegan Christmas Brownies I included all the dry ingredients with the only additions being water, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Almost instant brownies! Who wouldn’t want that for Christmas?
