I can't tell you how excited I am about Christmas this year, I can't wait to get the decorations up, we're doing Elf on the Shelf for the first time this year and Riley is at a brilliant age to really enjoy all the magic that Christmas brings.
I've been buying quite a lot of decorations and Christmas themed items and I love them all so I thought I'd share them with you.
I always get my Christmas cards from Hallmark as they have a wide range of choice, there's something for everyone and they quality is fantastic. I like to choose a few special handmade cards, some personalised cards and then the rest I just buy the boxes of cards plus buying them online couldn't be easier.
I got some gorgeous new decorations from Country Baskets, we're going for a white, red and silver theme this year so I got this gorgeous Silver, Glittery Stag, a Wooden Stag Head tree decoration (I'm a bit obsessed with stags), this beautiful Wooden Christmas Tree Advent Calendar and this really pretty Light Up Cone Tree for the fireplace. I can't wait to see what they look like in our living room, I could easily have got lots more things as they have a great choice and all at really reasonable prices.
I wanted to get Summer a cute Christmas themed bib for her to wear on Christmas Day so she doesn't spill anything on her gorgeous dress and I love how cute and girly this one is from Funky Giraffe, they have quite a few nice festive bibs in a range of colours so I may get some more and the more you buy the less you pay.
I love all of the different Christmas scented things you can get now so of course I had to get some Christmas scented hand wash. method do two amazing scents for the holiday season, Peppermint Vanilla and Mulled Cider, they both smell incredible and they're great for the environment too.
Lastly I got more Christmas decor items, this time from HomeSense, I love the Jingle Bell Tree which goes perfectly with our colour scheme, the Heart Wreath I thought was really pretty and would look great anywhere in the house and the little Wooden Tree Decoration goes with our other slightly Nordic decorations that I got last year. HomeSense is similar to TK Maxx in that they have fab items at discounted prices so if you have one near you then I recommend you go and check it out, they have some lovely items.
