Imoved house this year, and just as we settled on the best position for the living room furniture, I grew concerned. “But where will the Christmas tree go?” I asked my husband. I should probably mention that it was July. You see, I adore Christmas – from its intoxicating fragrance (pine needles, cinnamon and top notes of cloves) through to the flavoured hot drinks at M&S Café, everything about the festive season gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. My must-do personal tradition is to light a scented candle (this year it’s Gingerbread) and wrap presents while watching Love Actually (for about the 25th time). Full disclosure: there’s also champagne (I’ve already ordered the Louis Chaurey) and mince pies. Whatever your customs are, the Style & Living team have hunted down the best gifts, foodie treats and decorating essentials to make your Christmas as easy, fun and fabulous as possible. Enjoy.
