Mid December and the countdown to Christmas is fully ON! The advent calendars have been well and truly cracked open and (most of us) are the midst of the festive prep chaos.
But whether you’re buying presents, planning menus and wrapping gifts for everyone else – don’t forget to treat yourself! Pop an extra gift in the trolley next time you’re in the supermarket. ASDA have a cute pink gin Christmas decoration; just £3, it makes the perfect non-edible treat.
Talking of edible treats, we’re eating mince pies by the dozen!
Whether you’re a die-hard baker – or you prefer to buy the ready-made version – these tasty seasonal treats are a hit with almost everyone.
We especially like A Royal Christmas mince pies from The Royal Collection shop; bite size mince pies made with all butter pastry and filled with a sumptuous, fruity filling.
Literally fit for a King. Yum!
Sparkles and glitter. Christmas is the one time of year when it’s perfect acceptable to wear your sequins and festive finest on the weekly shop.
Embrace the shimmer and get your glad-rags on girls and boys!
We’re loving all the kitsch Christmas decor this year.
From glass a dinky glass bauble garland to a cute gin Christmas decoration for the tree, it’s definitely the time to deck the halls and give your home a festive makeover!
