We’re sorry to break it to you but getting your home ready for Christmas involves slightly more than a crack-of-dawn Christmas Eve supermarket run and a box of mangled tinsel (which, let’s be honest, is not going to make it through ‘just one more year’). An impromptu drinks party resulting in a few unexpected guests for the night; your grumpy aunt deciding at the last minute that yes, she will be there for Christmas lunch; as well as your son returning from university surgically attached to a new girlfriend (no, we don’t know where she came from either) mean you’re going to need to be on your A-game. Fear not, we’re here to make sure flustered is a mask you won’t be wearing this year.
SOFA SO GOOD
Order these beauties by 11 December and you’re all prepped for the Christmas Day movie.
Don’t forget the tabletop. Trade in the chipped dinnerware and glasses for some sparkly new stuff. And mismatched cutlery might be all the rage, but it only works when it’s careful-curated vintage, dahhhling, so treat yourself to some metalware.
Spare room had an airbed in it for as long as you can remember? Show your guests you care with an upgrade, just in time for Christmas.
DECK THE HALLS
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE PRESENTS
Whichever way you package Christmas, it’s hard to get away from gifts. Don’t try to fight it, give in and get them something they’ll love. And if there’s someone on your list who’s just impossible to buy for/has absolutely everything/is really fussy, may we direct you to our virtual reality headset. Yes, really. And P.S. It’s awesome!
