Two helpful elfs on a shelf

Give Yourself the Gift of Time with Your Own ELF HELPER!

Ah, Christmas. What does the festive season make you think of? Fun parties drinking mulled wine, exciting shopping trips, good times with loved ones … or stress overload!

For business owners, working parents and anyone juggling a lot of responsibilities, December can be the most demanding time of year.

With added business commitments such as organising lunches, sending cards to clients and completing year-end accounts, often combined with family events such as time off for the kids’ school show to gift shopping, some people may be forgiven for thinking Santa has it easy – at least he has his army of elves.

So this year, why not give yourself the gift of your own Elf Helper from Distinctive Assistants. With a whole range of dedicated seasonal services on offer, let Distinctive Assistants share the load and help you enjoy a stress-free festive season.

Imagine – you could enjoy watching the kids in their school show without worrying about what you still have to do at work or even find Christmas shopping a pleasure, knowing there’s someone to help you wrap all those gifts.

Who knows, with a little Elf Help and more time to breathe, you may find you enjoy the whole thing this year! Mulled wine anyone?
