With 50 days exactly until Christmas Day, we are starting to see more and more decorations in the shop windows; frequent reminders that the festive season is just around the corner. With this in mind, we round up some pre Christmas gifts to send friends or family near or far, to get them in the mood. We’re talking seasonal pressies for kids and adults, other than a traditional advent calendar (which will have its own dedicated blog post soon!) Enjoy x
Now all the craze, these arts and crafts boxes can take you through the whole of December and if you are buying for a family then its much more cost effective than individual presents. The boxes can either be bought as one single gift, or you can buy a subscription where they tailor the boxes depending on the season. Top of our list are Trunkaroo, Toucan Box and The Happy Box .
There is nothing quite like some new Christmas Pyjamas and they don’t have to be distasteful or novelty in any way. For traditional we love Trotters, especially this tartan pair, for ultimate luxury our go-to store is The White Company and if you are in warmer climates, Australian Brand Snugglebum delivers internationally and have short sleeved numbers that are 100% cotton and simply divine.
Every year we buy a new Christmas story for the kids. There is nothing quite like reading them at bedtime and getting into the spirit. So many around – take your pick!
Every door at Christmas should have a wreath and luckily most home shops or florists have beautifully put together ones that you can order for a loved one and customise as you please. Some of our favourites? This Pine Cone and Berry Wreath from Pottery Barn, the Faux Icy Berry Wreath from Pier1 and The White Company‘s Rosemary and Pinecone Wreath.
From one day to the next, transform a home into the Christmas season with a new festive scent. Amongst our most desired are Diptyque Paris’ Frosted Forest Candle , Neom’s new perfect peace scent, and Byredo’s Incense parfum all of which are sure to be the perfect gift.
Anything Christmassy for the home or tree always brings the essence of love into a family home. This card holder tree, from Crate and Barrel, is beautiful and chic. We are also craving these silver star Christmas votives from Blanc D’Ivoire. But even some beautiful new tree decorations are a great idea as a present.
