Getting Christmas sorted!

6

Hi,

I must confess I’m feeling rather smug. We’re just heading into December and with the exception of a few stocking fillers, I have DONE my Christmas shopping! I got into a sudden panic last week when I suddenly realised I had barely bought anything, which was a little worrying as most of my gifts have to be posted to family in other countries, so I really need to get organised early.

I did however have a list, so I sat down with a big mug of tea and did a massive online shop (including sixteen orders at once from QVC!), then popped to the shops for some other final bits. Phew! Now it’s all about wrapping, which I quite enjoy (and queuing at the post office, which I don’t, but hey, that’s all part of the festive season I suppose!).

Men's grooming sets
Some people are getting foodie gifts – I think they’re a great idea if you want to get something for families to share, so I’ve bought Churchill’s biscuits and Joe & Seph’s popcorn selections. A couple of male relatives are getting grooming sets –  the Liz Earle Man of the Hour collection and the Decleor two piece stocking filler set. My father-in-law, who is in his nineties and suffers from the cold a lot, is getting the fabulous Cozee Home heated throw, and the super warm Muk Luks knit slippers. Even the birds in my garden are getting a treat…a fresh supply of Richard Jackson’s bird food, their absolute favourite!

Cozee Home reversible bedding set
My chilly father-in-law (like so many of us, me included) also loves Cozee Home bedding so he may be getting another gift too – the range has a Today’s Special Value offer coming up on Wednesday 6th December. In fact, it’s two gifts as it’s a set of two super-soft microfleece duvet sets, one floral and one a spotted design (pictured above), both of which are reversible to plain, so you have four different looks which you can mix and match. There are five colours to choose from – taupe, silver grey, vintage pink, dusty aqua and lemonade yellow – and if you haven’t tried the range before, do take a look at the reviews online, as people absolutely rave about it! I certainly wouldn’t be without my Cozee Home bedding during the winter, I just love it. It’s instantly warm when you get in (no “sheet shock”) and washes like a dream.

In Vince Camuto tassel ponchoOne other tip if you need Christmas gifts for female friends and relatives  – a new range to QVC, Vince Camuto. It’s come to us from the US (the designer also co-founded fashion brand Nine West) and we are starting with a delicious selection of hats, scarves and ponchos, all of which make great presents as size isn’t crucial. I wore the tassel knit poncho (pictured above) on-air recently and had so many people tweeting and emailing asking about it.

I also love the striped, cowl neck poncho (mine is the merlot option), and the cute beanie hat with the faux fur pompom which I’m wearing (above left) with the pleated oversized scarf . I’m very excited about this range so do look out for more pieces coming soon.

Right, I need to get wrapping and posting! Do look out for my next blog though… there may be a rather tasty competition you can enter, with a scrumptious prize!

Love Jackie x
