Okay, okay, I appreciate it IS October, and that you might have Halloween and all that jazz to get out of the way first, but you can’t deny that Christmas is really only just around the corner! I’m a self-confessed Christmas nut, so I’m always happy to get thinking about Crimbo once the children are back in their September routine (don’t hate me). But come on, it surely pays (literally) to spread the cost, right?! Which is why I start looking at a few festive bits and bobs of the homeware variety, so I can make my picks and budget for them (and therefore, enjoy them), before December is out.
Browsing through the NEXT catalogue last night in search of cardigans for Sasha, I ended up getting sucked in to buying a Festive one for her, and then a Christmas jumper for Freddie (essential, obvs), before taking a peek at the Seasonal homeware. And what a treat it was!
Next aren’t paying me to say this, I promise, but they really do know a thing or two about styling their Christmas homeware section! Browsing through, I felt like I NEED another throw for the living room, and that this is THE YEAR to purchase (semi) novelty yuletide bedding for our new loft room. And heck, I’m damn well going to do it.
Here are some of my favourite festive Next buys:
- 6ft 88 led lit birch tree
- 12 piece Arden dinner set
- Children’s Christmas bed set
- Grey Over-sized check rug
- Lit gold glitter ivy leaf garland
- Red check double bed set
- Red check printed reversible throw
- Set of 4 mulled wine glasses
