I have blogged before about this website: it is one of my favourites for gifts and other treats for the home. I wanted some new decorations for our tree and also some Christmas presents so placed an order.
You can imagine my delight when this box arrived a few days later, packed full of goodies!
I ordered some glassware and other delicate items and they arrived well packaged and protected from any clumsy postmen!
We inherited a black John Lewis artificial tree from my parents this year, nicknamed the Goth tree! Black trees were very trendy last year but, to be honest you can’t really tell that it’s black as it simply looks dark green when lit by the glow of fairy lights.
I decided on my colour scheme for this year…silver, white and red and I wanted lots of vintage looking decorations. Dotcomgiftshop has an amazing selection of decorations for the home with lots on offer at the moment.
Here are the tree decorations I bought:
I also bought some things for around the house and present wrapping:
Some vintage style raffia ribbons. I won’t just use these over Christmas. I like using plain paper to wrap presents, usually brown parcel paper, then jazz it up with pretty ribbon and string, and these pastel colours will look lovely (£1)
And then a couple of random items:
These beautiful jelly moulds which I love and cannot wait to experiment with. After trying out Pimms jelly this summer I am thinking of a Christmas-inspired jelly to serve between courses on Christmas day…maybe mulled wine or sloe gin jelly?! (£2.95)
There is still plenty of time to get your Christmas shopping done and if, like me, you want to avoid the queues at the tills then have a look at this lovely website for some inspiration.
Work is getting in the way of transforming my home at the moment but I plan to have a decorating/ card writing/ present wrapping spree at some point this weekend so I will share some pictures of our tree this year and any other areas I get around to decorating! x
