HIP Wrap Party 2019
December 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us to celebrate another glorious year. Exchange experiences you made this year, be them good or difficult. And have fun at our white elephant drawing when once beloved or neglected items find a new home.
The christmas event is quite popular and we are happy to have booked at Hugo Wine & Dine again.
+++ Two things you should know about for this special event +++
First, our white elephant gift exchange:
Have you taken part in a white elephant gift exchange before? It’s a fun way of giving and receiving small gifts without having to buy anything new! Here’s how it works:
Have a look around your house for something you’d like to pass on – perhaps an ornament that just doesn’t fit your colour scheme, or that scarf you got last year from a well-meaning relative, but which you’re never going to wear. Anything you can think of that could use a new home.
When you’ve found a suitable item, wrap it up in Christmas paper and bring it along to the HIP wrap party.
Second, a lovely idea from Frédérique:
She sent us a link to a TED talk in which the speaker – Gillian Dunn – encourages us not to save the best stuff for a special occasion, but to get it out and celebrate! Use the best china, light those candles, wear that dress that’s been waiting for a special occasion!
Do you have an item of clothing in your wardrobe that you’ve been saving for best and haven’t worn yet? Why not get it out and wear it to the HIP Wrap Party? We think it’ll be really fun to – as Gillian says – “wear the dress you’ve never had a reason to wear”!
You can watch the TED talk here.
Please register for the HIP Wrap Party by signing up on our Doodle list. Places are limited so it’s first come first served. We hope to see you there!
