Gift ideas: Christmas in a bottle

We recently participated in the Consol Glass blogger competition where we were asked to come up with various different ideas for using glass in table decorating + gifting. The reward? If they were happy with what we came up with we would be included in their Christmas eBook that will be launched this week! Photographer Lauren Kim, Liezel from Match Set Love + I collaborated and came up with some lovilee ideas! We will be sharing some of these in this time leading up to Christmas + hope that it inspires you to think out of the ‘jar’.

The first idea I came up with was ‘Christmas in a bottle’. I am just nuts about pretty things and being a well, not that great a cook, I compensate for making my table look pretty! The idea is to give this gift for someone to replicate + create their own lovilee Christmas table. Included in the bottle:

  • Paper straws available from Moi Decor or Rumours of Ribbon
  • Gift tags from Match Set Love
  • Christmas baubles that I purchased from our local Spar
  • Washi Tape from Rumours of Ribbon
  • Set of small reindeer vinyl stickers from Match Set Love
  • 2m of Gold ribbon
  • Glitter and glitter stars
  • Washing peg covered with gold glitter tape

To decorate the bottle I used a medium reindeer vinyl sticker from Match Set Love, some gold string and bells.

There are two main Consol Glass outlets that you can purchase bottles and lids in various shapes and sized from. The one is situated in Woodmead, Johannesburg and the other one in Stellenbosch, Cape Town.
