I know it’s only October and I normally have a no Christmas talk until November rule but I could not resist going to John Lewis to check out their Christmas Shop the other week. Christmas is a magical time, I love nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa watching Christmas movies, sipping hot chocolate (with a mountain of marshmallows) while staring at a beautifully decorated tree. This year, John Lewis have won me over.
I wandered around the John Lewis Glasgow store taking photographs of every single decoration I wanted to buy. I think it has honestly been the first time that I wanted everything in sight but of course my bank balance will think otherwise. They have decorations to suit everyone, traditional to bright and fluffy. Here are my picks for what would be perfect for Christmas this year and years to come. I also have it on good authority that this years Christmas TV Ad will be aired on November 9th.
When I first entered the Christmas Shop, I was met with the most beautiful Nordmann Fir Real Christmas Tree complete with stand (£90). How good does that look? I would have loved to have taken the entire tree home with me but alas, I would have been arrested and put on the naughty list.
If you’re more of a minimalist, how about this Wooden Laser-Cut Tree? All you need to do is pop on some decorations and you have you own hassle free tree. It would be perfect in an office or a kids bedroom.
This year as always the new John Lewis Christmas 2014 Teddy Bear has been released and it’s a cutie! How dapper does the little guy look with his Christmas jumper and bow tie? The medium bear is a steal at £10 and is a collectors item. Perfect for children of all ages (or me).
I also love these paper decorations that you can hang from your ceiling, wall or even tree. As well as the Angel and Santa decoration, you can also get Rudolph. These would be perfect in a kids bedroom or even in the office to brighten up your desk.
How cute are these Children’s Tree Decorations? I love all of them and am definitely going to buy a fair few. Just because I’m an adult doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate some pompoms and felt, does it?
For the grown ups, these more traditional & contemporary tree decorations would look great on your tree. They are all great but I particulary love the mint green and blue decorations the most as they are my favourite colours. Once again, I’m definitely going to be buying them this year.
Snow Globes are a thing of beauty, ever since I was a little kid, I’ve loved looking at Snow Globes and cannot resist shaking them like crazy to watch the snow fall. This snow globe is a particular favourite of mine. A little grown up for kids but still beautiful nonetheless. Shake it, shake it like a Polaroid Picture, shake it, shake it.
Have you started thinking about Christmas? Do you buy new decorations every year or do you stick to firm family favourites? Real tree or fake tree?
