A Very Amara Christmas With The Design Team!

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,

In the lane, snow is glistening,

A beautiful sight,

The Design Team are happy tonight,

Walking in a winter wonderland…





  • How does your team embrace the spirit of the season in the office?

Grace: I personally like to crack out some Christmas jumpers – spreading festive cheer with each jingly step!

Emily: Food, food and more food!

Elle: A constant box of Quality Street sitting at the end of the desk!


  • Opening Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. So wrong or so right?

Grace: Oh you cannot do that! It’s a sure-fire way onto the naughty list.

Emily: Definitely so wrong, you have to wait until the morning then do them all at once in a mad flurry!

Elle: All good if it’s Xmas PJ’s!


  • Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?

Grace: I really love making my presents look awesome – so much so, I often end up being asked to wrap other people’s stuff for them!

Emily: Sadly I massively fail at wrapping, I don’t have the patience for it.

Elle: I’d say I’m a bit of a pro – this year I’m going environmentally friendly :)


  • What’s better: dinner or leftovers?

Grace: Team leftovers! I’m a fan of having ‘Christmas Dinner Soup’ when I’m back in the office between Christmas and New Year.

Emily: Got to say leftovers, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a buffet that pushes you over the edge.

Elle: BOTH! Can’t beat a turkey sandwich on Boxing Day though.


  • Fondest memory since last Christmas?

Grace: Welcoming my first ever nephew, Bowie, has been an experience like no other. I’m officially allowed to refer to myself as a ‘Cool Auntie’ now.

Emily: Getting our pet hedgehog Hobnob was probably the highlight of this year!

Elle:  My wedding day without a shadow of a doubt! Best day of my life!


  • Favourite thing about this time of year?

Grace: For me, Christmas is about spending time with my family, rubbish TV, twinkly lights everywhere, cheesy jumpers, those classic songs… Christmas is just so special!

Emily: Having an excuse at any time of the day to reach for the baileys.

Elle: Staying in, making home all cosy with plenty of candles and spending time with friends and family (usually eating).
