“I’m all for self-gifting and intend to prolong the anticipation of Christmas 2021 with M&S’s hotly anticipated beauty advent calendar. This year’s assortment features skincare, haircare and make-up goodies from Emma Hardie, L’Occitane and Aveda (to name a few) and is bound to sell out fast. Whether it’s a treat for yourself or a loved one, a beauty advent calendar is the gift that keeps on giving by adding a little magic to each December morning.”

“It wouldn’t be Christmas without a few top-notch tipples, so that’s why I’m hoping for the new Marksologist mixed case that features a selection of bar-quality cocktails, including a verdita margarita and Madagascan-vanilla espresso martini. They’re made using the finest spirits and crafted by expert mixologists, so all you need to do is shake or stir with ice, pour and sip!”

“We added a puppy to our family this year, so a cuddly outfit that keeps him warm is top of my Christmas wish list. This unbelievably cute Percy Pig dog jumper reimagines the much-loved character with a plush embroidered hood, ears and, of course, a curly tail. It’s available in three sizes to fit your four-legged friend and makes a smile-raising gift for fellow pet parents.”

“We’re hoping to spend this festive season in our new home, so I'm looking forward to hunkering down and not having to travel anywhere. These cheery red tartan matching family PJs are top of my cosy Christmas wish list. Made from snug, sustainably sourced brushed cotton, they’ll see us through from watching films on Christmas Eve to unwrapping presents the next morning.”
