We’re in November! How scary is that? Scary because the year is almost over (how?) but exciting as Christmas is coming!
Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year. And as we’re in November, I am ‘officially’ allowed to talk about it. I love everything about Christmas. From the hustle and bustle of shopping to carefully selecting gifts for my nearest and dearest. From the Christmas stories I tell my children, to all the magic surrounding the month. The beauty of December. Beautiful Christmas lights in all the windows, cute decorations on the tree. Yep, Christmas is definitely my time of year!
The norm for me is that by now I have almost finished Christmas shopping with only a few gifts left to buy. It’s always been a bit of a joke. This year I have barely started! With the move in September, then Reuben’s birthday, sorting out a boiler service, chimney sweep and a gas leak, well I’m a little behind! I have no idea how people leave shopping to the last-minute as I’m already panicking. Luckily Clintons Retail cater for all things Christmas!
Clintons Retail is the UK’s leading gifts and greetings retailer, unsurprisingly!
What you may find surprising is that they have an entire Christmas range! Stuck for a Secret Santa idea? There’s a bunch of fun gifts for under £10 that would be perfect! They have stocking fillers, gifts for the kids, soft toys for the Christmas Eve box. There’s even gifts for the cat! I was surprised at how much choice there was.
I always add to my Christmas decorations each year and there are some fab ones at Clintons! Not to mention candles. It wouldn’t be Christmas without a gingerbread scented candle or three!
Finish it all off with some Christmas Cards, Wrapping paper, cellotape and bows and I think we are almost ready, if only they sold the turkey and wine!
