Well, there’s only 6 sleeps before Christmas! We are all so busy in the run up to the Big Day that it's easy to forget those little extras which really put the icing on the metaphorical Christmas Cake. So here’s a few top tips for those finishing touches which will make Christmas in your home extra special….
What home is complete without a traditional Christmas Wreath on the front door. Not only does it bring you festive cheer every time you come home, it also spreads the joy to your visiting friends and family, your neighbours, and your neighbourhood in general. And that's what Christmas is all about in my book. Above we have the beautiful Berry Wreath at £30.
Candles and Candle Holders
Your Christmas table sometimes needs a little something to finish it off and we have these gorgeous candle holders which will really add a touch of glam, they come in two sizes and four colours and start at £30.00.
Good Church candles really give off a warm glow and will finish off your Christmas mantelpiece beautifully. We have packs of four at an amazing £9.99, and as each candle has a 250 hour burn time, that’s 1000 hours of cosy candle light!
For me, no Christmas table is complete without sumptuous fabric napkins and glitzy napkin rings. We have a huge variety of napkins and rings to follow every theme imaginable, you could even have a different one for each guest! Starting at just £2.50 they are a great value way of making your guests feel extra welcome.
You can even get that Christmasy feeling in your bedroom! To make sure Santa really does stop by, we have some wonderful Christmas themed duvets which will still look good in the New Year, when Winter actually starts. The Nordic Oslo duvet sets are cotton rich (60/40), come in red (shown above) or grey and include pillowcases. Single sets are £17.50.
The cosy soft flannelette Grampian Stag duvet set comes complete with matching pillowcases and is 100% cotton. There’s the lovely mulberry colour-way (shown) or there’s a navy one too. Single sets cost just £25.00.
There's still time to Christmasify your home and one of my personal favourites is the musical Nutcracker soldier, shown above (£35.99). One our our fastest sellers are the Christmas Snowglobes, and we also have LED Alpine Churches, or wicker stand-alone Christmas lights, you can make every room in your home feel truly festive. Shown below there's the Heart LED light (£15.00), and the gorgeous large Nativity Christmas Musical Snow Globe (£69).
Last of all, you can’t have Christmas without a Christmas Stocking. It doesn't just have to be for the children - why not give your loved one a stocking filled with their favourite chocolates or a few small special presents. We have an excellent choice of stockings and sacks which are guaranteed to stop Santa and his reindeer in their tracks! Above there's the Fair Isle stocking at £14.50, and below the Robin & Holly stocking at £9, and the Linen Reindeer stocking at £7.50.
That's my last blog before Christmas, but before I sign off I just wanted to let you know our Christmas opening times, and don't forget our Winter Sale starts on Monday 28th December. That's 3 whole days off over Christmas - what luxury!
Have a wonderful Christmas and a relaxing break, and I'll be back soon to tell you all about our amazing Winter Sale.
