How to kick-start the year with Noble Macmillan

How to kick-start the year with Noble Macmillan
Jan 14

The festive period can mean something different for all of us. For some it is time away from work to rest and recalibrate for the following year, while for others this cheerful and fun time of year can also be intertwined with moments of stress. Whether your Christmas and New Year falls into the former or the latter, we believe that we have the perfect recipe to spend time in January right and kink the year off on the right foot.

1. Organisation is key

Firstly, we suggest you get organised. Personally, organisation starts with a paper and pen in order to make some much needed to-do lists… Now where to buy the stationery from...? Of course, at Noble Macmillan we have a wide and beautiful selection of leather notebooks and diaries for you to choose from. We have small notebooks perfect for on-the-go note-making or to keep by your bed, and larger notebooks which will sit stylishly on your desk luring you in to use them. In addition to a notebook, a diary is an essential item to organise your year to come. Dependent on your preference, we have our ever-popular 2022 diaries, formerly known as our Mezzo Diaries, or our Five-Year diaries which are excellent for long-term planning and will allow you to reflect on your previous years.

 

The great thing about starting your year this way is that it has a positive ripple effect on the rest of the year. By jotting out the must-dos and important dates and occasions you are then aware of the preparation that each of those require. For example, special occasions including weddings, birthdays and anniversaries which you may want to buy a milestone gift for. Noble Macmillan is synonymous with milestone gifting. So, while your friends may be panic over finding the perfect gift to mark a significant occasion, you can rest assured we have the item for you. Our latest items that fall beautifully under this category is our small but ever-so-elegant range of personalised China. You can choose to initial or have an engagement announcement printed on one of these dishes, or even print a section from the wedding ceremony on a dainty bespoke jug. Of course, our Luxury Photo Albums make a fantastic present, or you may wish to veer away from the norm and buy a bespoke game from our luxury games selection such as our best-selling Perudo set.

2. A new project

Part of making the most of a year is filling it with ‘extra-curricular’ activities. By this I mean using your free time to do something you don’t have to but makes you feel as though you have accomplished something. Naturally, at Noble Macmillan we highly recommend putting together a photo album to do just this. Although it can be a daunting task, the process of creating a photo album, collecting photos of your favourite memories, whether done by yourself or with someone else to help, is fun and therapeutic process… Just try not to get too distracted reminiscing in the memories! A photo album really is the gift that keeps on giving - once you have made it you can share it with others and take pride in the joy they get from the fruits of your labour, and know that this will last for generations to come. We have a style and size of album to suit every taste and occasion. Whether a smaller album to commemorate a fun trip with friends, or one of our time original thick card albums – the ultimate luxury leather photo album. All of our photo albums can also be personalised with a date, name, place, or special phrase.

Ordering photos for your albums is a great way of reminding yourself to refresh the photos you have around your home. Updating or adding photos around the house is not only decorative but also a great conversation piece. Our wide range of luxury photo frames available in multiple sizes, colours and styles has the perfect frame for every house.

3. Treat yourself!

As well as small updates on your home, treating yourself to a little something new for your wardrobe can be a wonderful way to give yourself a daily energy boost. In line with this attitude of keeping things fresh, we have some new accessories in store for you this year – including some new colourways of out gorgeous Cross Body Bags. A new bag is a sure way of revitalising your look and putting an extra bounce in your step. If this is something that you would like but would prefer to spend a little less, our variety of accessories consists of a broad range of prices, including our detachable bag straps which are sure to jazz up any outfit.

4. Plan a getaway

Last but not least, a fantastic way to start the year is to book your days off and plan a holiday, or two, or three… Knowing you have time off to look forward to, whether it be a for a great adventure or a long weekend break where the aim is to do absolutely nothing, gives you something to look forward to even in the most stressful of times. Moreover, just as with the aforementioned special occasions, planning such trips well ahead allows time to prepare for them which can help with budgeting and reduce last minute panics… Last minute panics including not having all the nick-knacks that make your travelling experience feel smoother – the sort of products which we excel in providing. Wherever I go on holiday I like to bring with me little ways to pass the time, ready for any long journey or if stuck inside due to a turn in the weather. Our luxury travel game selection has something for everyone including our luxury leather travel backgammon set, pick-up sticks, and even our travel-sized mini tumble tower.  Equally, we have items to make your travelling experience easier while looking effortlessly stylish including our leather travel wallet, luggage tag, passport cover and ever-so-handy trinket box.  

We believe if you follow these guidelines you will well and truly be setting off on the right foot and keep yourself very busy!
