Gifts of Celebration

Celebrating is an attitude, a way of being that, practiced regularly, can become a way of life. It focuses our minds on the present and fills us with a sense of belonging and appreciation. Marking occasions - birthdays, graduations, weddings - reminds us to celebrate. But in the end celebrating isn’t really about occasions; it’s about people and the ways which we love, admire and draw strength from one another.

Here are some of our favourite celebration gifts: a single candle to symbolise the light someone brings into the world, a tea-towel for celebrating family heritage, a journey stick for anyone embarking on a new chapter in life. These are objects that remind us who we are, where we came from, what we’ve done, and the contribution we make. May they be a joy to give and a joy to receive.
