2 December: meet Holly and Ellie Ellie
Today’s Advent post features Ellie Ellie’s Grow Your Own Christmas Tree (so fun) and Holly Kippin, our newly-appointed Partner Support Assistant. Holly is one of the most passionate members of our team, which is appropriate as the team at Ellie Ellie are equally passionate!
Ellie Ellie told us that the Grow Your Own Christmas Tree was inspired by the song ‘O Christmas Tree’, and symbolises the growth of their business since joining notonthehighstreet.com over four years ago. It’s a great creative gift, designed to be treasured over many years and become a family tradition, which we just love! It also represents Ellie Ellie’s quest to promote a greener lifestyle – their range is full of upcycled, recycled and vintage items with fun and quirky twists.
I asked Holly and the Ellie Ellie team to tell me a bit about their Christmas plans:
What’s your favourite Christmas treat?
Holly: Cheesy bites – they only come out at Christmas!
Ellie Ellie: Mulled wine
And your favourite Christmas tradition?
Holly: One of my many favourite Christmas traditions is to have scrambled eggs and smoked salmon for breakfast, accompanied by a lovely glass of bubbly!
Ellie Ellie: Our favourite Christmas tradition has to be putting up the Christmas tree. It’s just such a magical time of year as we unwrap decorations and untangle those rebellious fairy lights! We love the nostalgia and laughing at those ‘Blue Peter’ style decorations we made as kids and of course those family heirlooms that we dust off each year.
What do you hope Santa will bring this year?
Ellie Ellie: An office chef to rustle up some culinary delights! We’re all big foodies in our office and it would be a dream to have goodies prepared for us each day. We are keeping our fingers crossed as we’ve all been particularly good this year!
