It’s certainly freshening up outside as sadly those lavish long sunny days become a distant memory.
Just a reminder for you... British Summer Time ends Sunday 29th October. It is often at this time of year that we get our grump on more easily than usual! But you know, we needn’t let Autumn’s arrival bring us down. There is so much to celebrate about this wonderful new Season, the array of Autumnal beauty on offer is just astounding. At Smartgifts we just love the crisp cool air, the gorgeous colours, cosy comforts and true awakening of the senses that only Autumn can bring.
It is the perfect time to indulge in a little extra comfort to sooth away those whispers of Winter… So don’t let this Season weigh you down, our wellbeing is so important. Yes, we know it's flu season, the winds messed up our hair yet again and don’t even mention that alarm clock! It’s fair to say that the spring in our step has now become more of a trudge. So, today we would like to share with you a few ways to have your heart singing it's happy beat the whole season through!

With the end of term approaching now is the time to start thinking how you can thank your child's teacher! An article, in the Mail Online recently caught our attention which included some interesting facts about buying gifts for teachers. It's hard to believe that teachers now receive end of term gifts worth around £77 million! Parents now spend between £10-£20 on buying a present for their child's teacher. A great many parents said whilst they thought their child's teacher deserved a present almost half admitted that they felt pressured into having to buy a gift.
We love to celebrate the true gift of new life at Smart Gifts... the birth of a beautiful new baby ♥
Isn’t it funny how easily we are mesmerised by the presence of a Baby.

And then the little angel (devil) starts crying bringing you back to reality with a thump Ha! Seriously though, Babies bring so much joy to this world and truly enrich our lives in every possible way. Could you imagine the world without them, rather impossible really as there wouldn’t be one!

But suddenly trying to express a few uplifting words of comfort seems challenging! We understand how important it is to say something which will make them feel instantly better.
In today’s technological World it is so quick and easy sending a kind message to a friend or loved one with a few words of comfort. With so many channels of communication; Facebook, WhatsApp, Email etc, is there any excuse not to? Communication is the essence of human experience, but despite the ease with which we can send a message, it’s more meaningful to send a handwritten note or card.
