  1. Saddened to hear of the passing yesterday of festive & illustrating legend Raymond Briggs. The Snowman is one of the most iconic modern Christmas tales and certainly at the heart of Christmas celebrations in the UK and across the world. Wishing his family and all who knew him much love at this difficult time.
  2. So clever! These Santa Stop Here wooden map ornaments mark your home perfectly for the man in red and make a fabulously personalised unusual Christmas ornament!
  3. Planning on going to a light trail this year? Don’t leave it too late to book. Details being released all the time! Use our complete guide and interactive map to find the light trails nearest you!

  1. Errrr there is absolutely no way we’ll succeed in Cadbury’s new advent challenge! One chunk each day – you’d have to have the willpower of a saint! Perhaps practice makes perfect – let’s try every month from now! Great advent gift though!!
  2. Isn’t this just the most fabulous Christmas card idea for a friend who’s lost someone dear?!  A beautiful touching card to enjoy. Then plant it in the garden and remember that special someone as you watch the wildflowers bloom.
  3. We’re in love with Gaucho Belt’s dog collars and leads – we love a bit of twinning and what better than pairing these gorgeous leather belts with your furry friend!
  4. Still looking forward to your summer hols? We absolutely LOVE this washbag from OneNine5 – thoughtful in every way, it ticks all the boxes and makes a great Christmas gift for the jetsetter too!

  1. Oh we just love the idea of watching The Muppet Christmas Carol with live orchestra this winter! Set to tour across the UK in December, find your nearest showing!
  2. Currently crushing on this divine candle from Cotswold Candle Co. Frankincense and myrrh are not just for Christmas, that’s all we’re saying!
  3. OMG having major Home Alone flashbacks!! This pair of dove tree ornaments to share is too much! LOVE! And sold by one of the UK’s fabulous year-round Christmas shops too 🙂
