Some Christmas fun now it’s December.

The Advent Calendar
Even if you haven’t yet gorged yourself on all the chocolates in your advent calendar, the Ora Advent Calendar is absolutely the best calendar you will be opening this December. Every day this month you can listen to a brand new choral composition by this a cappella group, starting with Suzi’s Carol by John Rutter.
This year Studio Smudge’s beautiful wreath is designed with Christmas foliage, pink flowers, rose hips and gold flourishes – set the trend and adorn your door with this pretty in pink Christmas must have.
Sam and Josh Lyle have been selling Christmas tree since the age of 13. If you need a tree, and you do, it’s Christmas, a real one is essential, Pines & Needles is the place to get one, and a Nordmann fir is the one you want.
Liberty has the very best Christmas shop and of course wonderful Christmas tree decorations. We love this glamorous peacock.
These are festive and fun and not trying too hard – a hat, a toy and a joke, all you need.
A pudding is important at Christmas time, and this handmade pudding comes wrapped in a festive tea towel.
If choosing lots of little presents to go in a stocking is too much, Aeske have done it for you – they have one for Her and one for Him. I’m not convinced by the actual stocking itself, white linen isn’t quite in the spirit, but the things inside are very nice indeed.
You could buy a tin of Celebrations, or even some Roses, or you could instead buy some of Amelia Rope’s delicious creations. I am big into passion fruit and chocolate at the mo, and these are amazing.
A dress is necessary and this year it’s needs to be a Rixo dress. Pick from any one of their wondrous creations, I like this one, and I also love their new cosmic range.
It’s not lurid but it does sparkle, it’s super cosy and nice and warm and you can wear it all year. Perfect.
The TrousersM & S
It turns out 13-14 year olds are quite big – yes these star print velvet leggings are from the kids range, they are SO GREAT, and yes I own them. Probably not for you if you are tall, I am 5ft4 and they fit wonderfully. SO HAPPY.
These are very very fun indeed, and flat shoes are always a good idea round Christmas time – all those carol services and drinks parties, so much standing up, and these will cheer any outfit up. They also come as a pair of ankle boots, possibly even better.
The Present for You
This is the one I am after, such a stunning colour, just perfect for cold wintry days.
The Thank You Letter Notecards
Very important, I like Angela Harding’s Winter Notecards.
And even more important..
