Ever since my darling Mum started tying beautiful ribbons in my hair when I was a little girl, I've been mad for ribbons! As much as I love all our sons, I must admit to a slight twinge of sadness that I wasn't able to continue the hair ribbon tradition with my own family.
However, I have made up for this in so many other ways since! My long-suffering husband will be first to attest to my ribbon-buying frenzies & the rolls of glorious ribbon hidden in special places all over our house.
The joy of adding that final flourish of gorgeous ribbon to a gift is one of life's great pleasures. I particularly love the range from Cox & Cox - they are just so stylish and elegant.
