15 minutes of “me time”

An easy homemade gift that's sure to please

Give someone the gift of 15 minutes of relaxation and time to unwind. Life can sometimes be more hectic than we would like, especially in the run-up to Christmas – so a little time out is a perfect way to relax and unwind! This pretty gift box holds everything needed to enjoy some “me time”: a candle, a biscuit, a tea bag and a short story to read during relaxation.

The package is lovingly and individually decorated using edding 1200 metallic colourpens. For writing the story and adding detailed drawings, the edding 2185 gel roller is the perfect choice. Metallic shades such as silver and gold shine at their best on dark paper.
