Things to do in February

February isn’t exactly a Christmassy month, and quite frankly, thoughts of Christmas are far from my mind. If you are keen on doing something for the next season, then we recommend the following:

  • Pick up cards, ribbon, wrapping and “non-fashion” item gifts in the post Christmas clearance sales.
  • Sort through your gift/present box, keep wanted items, and donate the rest to charity
  • Make any post-Christmas follow up phone calls and send emails and letters.
