How is it 10 years since the release of The Snowman and The Snowdog?! And other surprising festive facts…!
- We’re walking on air at the idea of a special double feature of The Snowman in Odeon Cinemas this Christmas! And have you seen Snow Windows’ latest addition to the snow spray stencil family. Soooo cute!
- Hannah couldn’t resist the fabulous Fa la la la la sign in its fab neon green frame from the wonderful Lel and Lee at the Modern Printing Studio pop up in John Lewis earlier this week. Although the Naughty List one is rather tempting too…
- Planning on a little Black Friday shopping this week? Don’t forget the Jolly Festive gift guides to give you a helping hand. Lots of discounts available on the products inside.
- Hannah went to see Elf The Musical earlier this week in London. It was great fun – almost panto esque (especially in terms of the jokes) but in a stage musical format. The classic likes all appeared but the story had been tweaked. They even managed a little festive magic at the end. Tickets still available.
- Out yesterday on Audible: Bill Bryson lifts the lid on all those festive traditions. We cannot wait to get this playing on our daily commute!
- Love this list of the challenges of Christmas. Seriously relatable! But do you agree with the top three?!
- Planning on a North Pole Breakfast this year? We’ve updated our elf breakfast ideas and added heaps more! There’s free downloadable printables and 25 food ideas, plus so much more. Start here for inspiration!
Keep the tunes pumping all season long with our hand-picked soundtracks, free to download on Spotify.
- Do you like going out for Christmas dinner? Muddy Stilletos has rounded up its favourite 52 restaurants for the big meal!
- Talk about getting stars in your eyes!! This Festive MINI is based near Hannah (although it’s had national acclaim!) and certainly lights up the streets in her neighbourhood. Now that’s some festive cheer … and for a great cause too!
- Jo’s been busy creating her thank you box for delivery heroes. Have you seen it on our social media this week? We love the idea of saying thank you to the people who look after us, whether with a treat or a handmade message.
