Christmas is getting close. The decorations are up in shops, festive music is being played and the Christmas TV adverts have well and truly started. I just can’t wait to see what John Lewis bring to us this year.
My favourite so far has to be the bear and the hare. It was such a beautiful advert. Moz the Monster went down well with my son last year but mainly because the PJ’s were glow in the dark.
This week tasks for your Christmas preparations are:
Order you meats – If you are hosting Christmas dinner this year get those meat orders in. Don’t forget to order your chipolatas and bacon too for your pigs in blankets. If you order and pay early its one less thing to worry about. Local farm shops do some great offers on your Christmas meats too and sometimes can even deliver.
Christmas Crackers – Get these in this week loads of great choices on the high street. But remember to make sure they match your Christmas table theme and always have a few spares in case you end up with some unexpected guests.
Christmas party outfits – I am sure many of us have packed December diaries but that means a few Christmas outfits for you and your family and
don’t forget those Christmas jumpers too.
Christmas Jumper day is December 14th this year.
These items do sell out quick so being prepared and buying something you actual like is important. Very,have some gorgeous Christmas party dresses lots of glitter and sequins so head over and take a look at their party wear selection. CLICK HERE
Love this cute jumper its only £14.99 and has a 3D nose. CLICK HERE
Don’t forget your accessories too lots of pretty sparkly bags around along with sparkly earrings. If you treat the kids to Christmas Eve PJ’s it may be worth you looking at getting these now too before all the sizes sell out. Tesco have fab Grinch ones, looks like I will be off to see this movie very soon, I was never a fan of the original one! and New Look have a great choice for teenagers.
Don’t forget the shoes!!
Travel – If your travelling by train for Christmas get those tickets booked now, prices for Christmas week will be reasonable at the moment but if you leave it much longer you will find they will start to double or even triple!
Advent Calendars – There must be a calendar for almost anything these days! I have been treated to the one from YOU magazine Martin Lewis did a feature on it. Personally I don’t really agree with them I think a simple chocolate is enough but Rob insisted. But if you are looking for a specialist calendar, whether it be from Lego, smiggle, benefit get these now.
I always donate advert calendars to a local children’s charity for families that can’t afford these luxuries. It’s always good to be mindful at Christmas as not everyone enjoys this time of the year. If you can donate a gift box or an advent calendar to a local charity I know these items are very much appreciated and don’t forget woman’s aid are always on the look out for unused toiletries.
Don’t forget the Christmas cleaning Calendar starts very soon, get your copy now to help you stay super organised this year CLICK HERE
