This year has seen edible treats transferred to wrapping which is a lovely idea, a gift on a gift! 2. JINGLE BELLS 2-bells Bells are very festive, one jingle and the christmas mood is set.

Bells come in all shapes and sizes so you can pick and choose what style suits best, they are perfect for styling up a gift in the most simple way. 3.
