23 December: Meet Debbie and Megan Claire

Debbie comes bearing gifts

It’s almost Christmas! It’s day 23 and today we have Debbie Williams, our Senior Commercial Finance Manager, with this gorgeously festive Christmas Present Cotton Tote Bag by Megan Claire.

Meet Debbie

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

Fairytale of New York, of course! Closely followed by Punjabi Jingle Bells on YouTube – Google it, it’s fabulous.

What’s your favourite Christmas tradition?

Eating pretty much incessantly for the whole of the month of December. And also Singalong Christmas Carols at the Royal Albert Hall!

What does notonthehighstreet.com mean to you?

A great place to work, a great place to buy unique gifts, and where I frequently succumb to temptation and buy far too many things for myself as well – just ask Bobbie our receptionist, who’s constantly ferrying parcels to my desk when they arrive! It’s also nice that the company helps smaller businesses to grow and prosper, as a staff member it feels like we’re ‘giving back’ a little.

Meet Megan Claire

Megan Claire was founded by Megan Purdie, and is based in rural Leicestershire. Megan Claire creates distinctive and personalised cards, prints and gift tags, as well as a range of cotton tote bags and personalised wall stickers that are perfect for any contemporary home. Each design is created and finished individually using high quality materials.

What’s your favourite Christmas treat?

I’d be very happy with a big bowl of bread sauce!

What’s your favourite Christmas tradition?

We’re a very close family with over 17 members, and it’s tradition for us to rotate Christmas dinner each year between three households. The celebrations usually start with Granny’s famously over-salted Scottish Lentil Soup and end with a fiercely competitive game of Articulate, with The Beatles playing back to back throughout. This is our perfect Christmas, followed by a very lazy Boxing Day in PJs watching films and eating copious amounts of leftovers and chocolates!

How does your festive tote epitomise notonthehighstreet.com?

For us, notonthehighstreet.com is all about showing others how much you care by sending original presents that mean so much more than a simple exchange of gifts. Our Christmas Tote Bag makes the perfect alternative hamper, it’s great for loading up with Christmas groceries and pressies, and it’s also ideal as an original bottle bag or gift bag. This year we’ll be filling one with new pyjamas (and a little satsuma!) to give to our niece on Christmas Eve.
