    November 1, 2017 by Faffy Tea

    Finding the time to take proper care of yourself can be hard. Our lives are busy and stressful.

    This December, instead of having a piece of chocolate or a gin every day in your advent calendar, you can instead get a little self care tip.

    Show yourself some kindness and spend a little bit of time on your wellbeing every day this Christmas / Holiday season with our new Self Care / Mindfulness Advent Calendar.

    Self Care Advent Calendar

    Our printable calendar consists of 24 mini envelopes (with calming festive images), and 24 self care cards with activities for the day which can be used in any order.

    Mindfulness Printable Advent Calendar

    Cards include activities such as:

    • On your commute to work or lunch break, find five things you think are beautiful and make a mental note
    • Play your favourite song of all time (as loud as possible) and sing or dance along. Play it twice if you have time!
    • In a notebook, start to write down any compliments you receive over the next month so that you can look back on them later on

     
    Self Care Wellbeing Advent Calendar

    Print, cut and stick the envelopes together, add a card for each day, and then string or stick them on your wall.

  5. Quirky & Alternative Non-Traditional Christmas Cards

    December 12, 2016 by Faffy Tea

    Looking for Christmas cards that are a little *ahem* different this year?

    On Pinterest we’ve been searching for alternative Christmas Cards – the funny, rude, clever, sweary, geeky and unique! How about sending your friends a card with Shane McGowan on the front instead of Santa this year? We will be adding to the board up until Christmas so why not give us a follow? Some of these are of course not safe for work / kids / family.

  7. Gift Exchange Game – Enchanted Christmas Forest Design – Printable party game to entertain family or friends

    October 19, 2016 by Faffy Tea

    Have you ever played the games ‘White Elephant’, ‘Yankee Swap’ or ‘Evil Santa’?

    This is a simplified version of these types of gift exchange games – great for a twist on Secret Santa!

    Printable Christmas Gift Exchange Game for Parties

    Get each family member or party guest to bring along a wrapped gift (you can decide the budget). One-by-one each party guest picks a card and must swap the gift they are holding with another person’s gift, based on the swapping rule on the card. Rules include “Swap your gift with the person who looks most like Santa”, “Swap your gift with the person with the smallest gift”, and “Swap your gift with the tallest person”.

    Christmas Party Game - Printable Gift Exchange Game - Pretty forest design

    Once all cards have been used up, the guests can unwrap and keep the gift they ended up with.

    There are 36 cards included in the pack to print out on two A4 sheets of card, plus also a printable sheet of ‘blank’ cards for adding your own swapping rules! Your purchased game cards will of course not include the Faffy Tea watermark like in the photo above.

    The cards have a pretty ‘Enchanted Christmas Forest’ design – very shabby chic! Please note that this game is also available in our shop in a Vintage Christmas Village design.

  10. Christmas “Minute to Win It” Game Ideas and Free Printable Scorecard

    November 17, 2015 by Faffy Tea

    Minute to Win It Mini Games

    It’s getting all cold and festive! If you’re throwing a Christmas party, here are some ‘Minute to Win It’ game ideas that all guests will enjoy.

    There’s also a free printable scorecard (using our “Christmas Village” theme) that you can download to keep note of guests scores in the games.

    1. CLIFFHANGER
    Place 8 Christmas cards in the middle of a table, standing so that the fold of each card is horizontal and the folded edge points upwards. One-by-one guests have one minute each to blow on the cards to move them slowly and gently so that as the cards fall off the edge of the table, one side of the cards keeps them hanging on. It’s tricky!

    2. JINGLE IN THE TRUNK
    Use an empty tissue box and tie string or ribbon to it so that each guest can tie it around their waist. Boxes should be positioned at the bottom of the guest’s back. Fill the tissue box with jingling bells, cotton wool balls and/or polystyrene balls. Guests have one minute to shake their booty, jump and wiggle to get as many items out of the tissue box as they can. No leaning back!

    3. STOCKING FIDDLER
    Get a Christmas stocking and fill it with 15-20 objects. You can use anything you like such as Christmas decorations, household and kitchen objects, and toys (although nothing breakable). Tie up or stick down the opening of the stocking so that nobody can look inside. Guests have one minute to feel the stocking and write down as many of the objects that they think are inside the stocking as they can.

    4. RUDOLPH NOSE BEST
    Purchase some red pompoms (once for each guest… for hygiene reasons!) and tie/glue a short length of string to them. Give each guest a blob of petroleum jelly on the end of their nose. Guests then bite on to the non-pompom end of the string, and have to use their heads and bodies to swing the pompom and get it to stick to the petroleum jelly. See how many times each guest can do it in one minute. Voila – Rudolph’s red nose!

    5. BAUBLES SWING LOW
    In a corridor or large room that has a carpet, create a track along the floor by taping some edges or laying down string. Attach a plastic bauble to string / ribbon just at the right length that it can swing between guests’ legs and reach the floor. You can also use another piece or string or ribbon to tie the bauble on string around guests’ waists. Each guest then has one minute to swing their baubles between their legs and hit a ball along the track, just using the movement of their bodies (no hands!). If they hit the edge of the track their turn is instantly over, so they must go carefully and slowly. After a minute, measure the length they have achieved!

    6. SNOWBALLS ‘N’ STICKS
    Find two Christmas biscuit tins (or similar vessels!) and fill one with cotton wool balls, then decorate some chopsticks to look all festive. Guests have one minute to use the chopsticks to move as many cotton wool balls from the full tin into the empty tin as they can!

    Free Printable Christmas Game

    Here’s a free printable scorecard that you can use to make note of all guests’ scores for the 6 “Minute To Win It” games above.

    The scorecard is a JPG image file so can be printed from any home printer.

    It will work best if it’s printed at A5 size – e.g. use the Windows Print Pictures feature to print two copies on an A4 sheet of paper or card:
