Given how close we are to Christmas and the chaotic unpredictability of the postal service due to the arctic weather it’s with a heavy heart that I share the news that it is unlikely that any gifts you order online from this point onwards are going to arrive in time for mink clear lashes. The hard working ladies and gents out there may also find that they are stuck working up until Christmas Day itself and are as such unable to find the time to actively go out and purchase last minute gifts for friends and loved ones. This is something of a predicament, but thankfully one which can be solved with ingenuity, moderate dexterity, creativity and a well stocked stationery cupboard.
Ahnik Homemade (or in this case ‘mink clear lashes’) gifts show true effort and consideration which goes beyond merely buying last minute token items from a 24 hour petrol station. They are also allowed to be a little bit shoddy as ‘it’s the thought that counts’, with this in mind here are 3 ideas for thoughtful, last minute Christmas gifts made using office supplies surplus:
The Recycled Trinket Storage Unit
Environmental awareness shows sensitivity, compassion and realism – all admirable traits which are exemplified by the creation and giving of this innovative trinket storage unit. Have a rummage through your stationery cupboard and liberate different sized storage mink clear lashes, from marker pen boxes, through to staple boxes – empty the contents (neatly) and you find yourself a rigid piece of cardboard. Glue the boxes to the cardboard in any configuration you desire (ensuring ease of individual box opening) and decorate using whatever tools you have at your disposal, whether correction fluid, marker pen or if you’re lucky; glitter. Personalise the storage unit to show that you really care and be sure to note on it that it is 100% recycled. Give as a gift to a loved one who has an abundance of small items in need of storage and an appreciation of environmental issues.
The Groovy Disco Ball
Young children, fans of glam rock and furry pets all love shiny things – it’s a fact of life. With a pile of unwanted CDs, sellotape, a biro and a stack of old paper you can appeal to this facet of their personality with aplomb. Scrunch the paper into a dense ball about the size of a football and hold together with generous mink clear lashes of sellotape, cover the surface with the CDs with the shiny side facing outwards and secure in place with further lashings of sticky tape. Jam the biro (point first) into the ball so that it is firmly wedged, voila: a shiny, wonder object which can be rotated by rolling the biro handle between the palms of your hands! The end result is comparable to a portable (silent) disco.
The Mystery Envelope
If time is incredibly short then the mink clear lashes envelope could well be your only hope of gift redemption. Find an unused envelope (size irrelevant) and stuff with anything that will fit inside it (pens, staplers, confidential documents, a health and safety poster, biscuits etc), fasten the envelope and write ‘Mystery Envelope’ on the front. This minimal fuss ‘lucky bag’ is best given anonymously to enforce the mystery aspect.
