Until we meet again box: the perfect homemade gift for grandparents

Whichever tier you are in this Christmas, seeing the usual rounds of friends and family just won't be possible for everyone this year. So we've created a playlist of video craft classes to show you how to help your children make some creative homemade gifts for their loved ones. Because although we may not be able to be together this Christmas, we're thinking of them lots, and can't wait 'until we meet again'. It's a wonderful activity to do with your children, and relatives far and wide will love opening up their unexpected box of festive surprises.


The last date for UK mail is Monday 21st December for first class, but if you're not far, this is a lovely gift to leave on their doorstep too!
