One of my favourite places to shop is upstairs in our local T K Maxx. I’m not massively keen on the clothes, but I love all the kitchen stuff, gifts and candles. We recently discovered their new shop on our way to Lidl in Aylesbury (I think I mentioned it here), and Mr E and I recently went back for a proper look around and ended up having a really lovely Christmassy afternoon of shopping. Here are my favourite discoveries:
Check out these gorgeous folksy reindeer decorations. There are several of them all hanging on a string – I thought they’d be perfect for hanging on our kitchen dresser. So cute!
In our lounge, it’s all about silver and sparkle. I loved these hanging star decorations. Some of them (just below the star) were large enough to take a tealight inside them – perfect for hanging in the porch for a warm welcome:
The thing I love about the place is that you can find things you just wouldn’t find anywhere else. I fell in love with this reindeer cushion and just had to have it (even though when we got it home the boys were like ‘where are you going to put it for the rest of the year?!’). But it’s such good quality, and looks perfect on our grey sofa, so I don’t care!
There are lovely cards too. I bought these ones:
And I LOVE scented candles. These are a box of three – the mint ones smell amazing:
And then upstairs there’s a whole floor of incredibly nice tableware, pots, pans and even food:
I’m mad about everything copper at the moment and I’ve dropped massive hints to Mr E so I’m hoping these amazing pans will be under the tree for me this year (and oh look, there are my feet):
And look at these cute little copper angels:
Just amazing. Spent a fortune, but y’know, it’s Christmas! It’s worth checking if you’ve got a HomeSense near you as it’s so lovely
