Jingle Illy Bells!

Jingle Illy Bells: Continuing our Christmas Crafting tradition and brewing up festive magic with upcycled tin can decorations!

From toilet rolls to Illy tins, our festive crafting journey continues.

In the spirit of the season, our Head Office team has turned ordinary items into extraordinary Christmas creations since Winter 2016. What began as a quirky tradition has evolved into a heartwarming journey of creativity, with each member transforming a random, everyday item into something Christmassy.

2016 marked the start with toilet roll tubes, followed by corks in 2017, wooden spoons in 2018, embroidery hoops in 2019, terracotta pots and wooden crafting balls in 2020, crafting lightbulbs in 2021, and pegs with lolly sticks in 2022.

This year, fuelled by a robust coffee habit, the team embraced the challenge of repurposing Illy coffee tins. The results? Nothing short of spectacular! Even the Burntwood team couldn’t resist joining in on the festive crafting fun.

Throughout December, the office buzzes with holiday cheer, from festive Fridays to our beautifully lit tree proudly taking its place in front of the office. Here’s to the joy of crafting, spreading holiday spirit, and making memories with loved ones. May the tradition continue, and the festive magic thrive in every corner of your homes!

As the year comes to a close, the entire Messenger team extend warm wishes to all for a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2024.
