If you’re a ‘last minute Larry’ like me, there are still plenty of wonderful things to buy, and often, if you hang around for a bit before ordering, you’ll find there are quite a few deals to be had. First things first, though, you need a mince pie and a glass of fizz….
Riverford Organic mince pies and Christmas pudding
Over the Christmas period, Riverford Organic Farms deliver thousands of festive orders, from full Christmas dinners to luxury gift hampers. We’re addicted to their amazing mince pies (which look home made enough if you feel you need to cheat), and their Christmas puds are amazing too.
While you’re eating your mince pies (and indeed your Christmas pud), we think the perfect accompaniment is gorgeous cherry-scented Visciolata. dessert wine. You can buy it at The Whisky Exchange, and it’s basically just Christmas in a glass. Also, drop a slug into Prosecco or Champagne for the perfect pink Christmas cocktail. Yum!
Talking of fizz, this lovely, light sparkler, from Valdobbiadene, in the heart of the Prosecco region of Italy is a must for the festive season. We’ve actually moved over to Prosecco from Champagne for our Christmas morning tipple as we all prefer it. This one has delicious, creamy bubbles, fresh acidity, something nutty and a bit of honey sweetness too. Really lovely.
Don’t forget your Christmas Yankee Candles – still the original and best. My faves this year are: Berry Trifle, Cosy by the Fire, Bundle Up and Winter Glow. There’s 50% off loads of candles at the moment too!
For last-minute decorations and gorgeous pressies, Cox & Cox have an amazing up to 50% off sale – not to be missed! (Order by Monday 21st).
John Lewis have got all sorts of Christmas offers, including up to 50% off Christmas lighting and up to 30% off decorations. These cute little snowy birdhouse lights are now just £9.00:
If you’re still looking for great gifts or the perfect party dress, Topshop’s last order date for delivery on 23rd December is midnight on 20th, or 4pm on 23rd December for express delivery on the 24th December. You’ll find plenty of glitter still for sale (these beauties are available in all sizes and reduced to £30):
Mint Velvet have also got lots of gorgeous stuff in their pre-Christmas sale. I love a detailed top over a pair of black trousers or leather leggings, and this feather hem top is lush, reduced to £55 from £109.
hush do gorgeous gift sets, and offer next day delivery right up to the 23rd December 2015.
I’ll bring you any more sale bargains or discount codes as I get them. Until then, happy shopping!
