Well the nights are drawing in and there's a definite nip in the air, so my thoughts have been turning to bedding. You know how much I love my Northern Nights and I buy it for my friends and family too, so I thought, why not put together a perfect gift list for Christmas?
Here are my top four suggestions, but do let me know your favourites by leaving a message in the Comments box below…
First on my list is the Penfold Stripe Reversible Flannel Duvet Set, in fact that's what I have on my bed right now (as you can see in the pic above!). I just love it so much and I think it would make an ideal gift as it's so warm and snuggly on a cold night.
I chose this design as it's simple and chic and would suit the man in your life, be it your hubby, son or grandad. The stripes remind me of childhood summer holidays in Weston-Super-Mare and the deckchairs on the beach, and also my favourite Cornish Blue ceramic.
I have the blue and sage versions, and if I was buying it for my sister I'd go for the pink or taupe.
These Gusseted Pillows would make a great gift! I do believe that pillows are the foundation of a really good night's sleep and I adore these ones! They are supportive yet soft and give you a wonderful feeling of reassuring comfort whether sleeping or sitting up in bed and reading.
By giving four pillows the lucky receiver can either spread them out around the house in different bedrooms or keep them all to themselves and really indulge in some hotel-style luxury!
I've actually bought this Heavyweight Cotton Flannel Duvet Set for my friend Angel for Christmas (shhh, no telling!) as she tends to feel the cold, so I figured this would be the perfect bedding for her.
I have flannel bed linen but nothing as heavyweight as this – I think snuggling into this set on a cold winter's night would be absolutely bliss!
Northern Nights flannel is 100% cotton and to me it feels just like slipping into your favourite pair of pyjamas. If like me you hate to sleep with the central heating blasting out then flannel will keep you warm on the coldest nights – you'll be as snug as a bug in a rug!
My final choice is this Bonita Stripe 400 Tread Count Duvet Set – it's made from pure Egyptian cotton and would make the most luxurious present. I love the fact that it comes in a choice of great colours, so whether you're buying for a woman or a man, there's something for eveyone.
The design is simple and classic, and the high thread count of the cotton feels heavenly against your skin. I don't own this set (yet!), but I have been lucky enough to present it on air with Susia Adams, and I'm totally smitten with it. Do you think if I hint enough I might find it under the Christmas tree…?
I hope this list has given you a few ideas for bedding gifts this Christmas. Any choice of Northern Nights would make a great gift and the person you're buying it for will be thanking you for years to come!
