Like any small business, she’d love a boost of sales for Design Wright in the run up to Christmas — before her mother gets any more stressed at the stock filling up the house. 

As her brother has been living away, Megan has been using his bedroom to store stock. Now her mother wants the room returned to normality before he comes home for Christmas. With the festive deadline approaching, Megan has asked her followers to stock up and help alleviate the seasonal stress building in the Wright household.

They could be used as a fun, reusable alternative to wrapping Christmas presents this year. Here are some of our favourites:
