What happens when Channel 5 get in touch and other Christmas tales this week..!
- Never in a million years did we think we’d be approached by a national TV channel asking to feature one of our Christmas ideas in their new TV show. But if you check out Channel 5’s 30 Tips To Cut Your Christmas Spend, you’ll spot a familiar Christmas cushion dressing concept…! Are you going to give it a try this year? Some other great tips in the programme too!
- An escape room game in a cracker set! Work on your own challenge, then combine together for the final piece of the puzzle. Genius. Loving this idea from Puzzle Post!
- Have you watched Spirited yet? (The new AppleTV+ Christmas offering from Will Ferrell & Ryan Reynolds.) We both loved it – high energy musical packed with one-liners. Just what we needed! Which of the new Christmas movies have you most enjoyed this year?

- Speaking of Christmas movies … don’t forget our FREE printable Christmas movie advent calendar! Perfect for helping you pick out your movies each night of the countdown.
- Loving this list of the top 10 versions of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (who knew there were so many!). Which is your favourite?
- 36p for a month of LED Christmas lights. That’s not as bad as we feared. Great advice here to help us through the season.
- And keeping with the tips theme … great info from The Guardian here on Christmas postage. Including the latest overseas dates & strike details.
- Who doesn’t love a photo gift?! We’re both huge Photobox fans. Do you use them too? Hannah’s mighty relieved that they’ve extended their sale until end of 1st December as she’s in charge of the annual desk calendars and hasn’t quite managed to get them ordered yet..!
- Fancy giving your Christmas countdown a little va-va-voom? This is an advent calendar with a cheeky difference! Scratch away a daily surprise to enjoy with your partner. Jokes aside, what a lovely idea to carve out some time for each other in amongst the busy countdown season.
- Keeping with the saucy theme, we have to give a shout out to one of our favourite businesses: Go La La Cards! That perfect combo of hilarious & slightly shocking but fundamentally fabulous, thoughtfully made products. They make the BEST cheeky secret santa gifts! Loving the new mitts to join the range this year. (Click through with an open mind!!)
