There are some subtle and not so subtle signs in the shops that Christmas is on it’s way. I happened to go into my local House of Fraser and see some bayliss and harding bath and body creams beautifully packaged in silver star boxes. Perfect for a stoking filler of for a small Autumn Birthday gift. I couldn’t find these on the House of Fraser website but I did find these pretty looking crackers full of Bayliss and Harding goodies at Debenhams.
My travels then took me to Marks and Spencer where I noticed just a few rolls of Christmas Paper in the card section. I especially liked their Twelve Days of Christmas Wrapping Paper as I love Christmas things with a sense of Christmas past.
I then spoke to the assistant on the Origins counter in John Lewis who informed there are some gorgeous Christmas sets coming in soon so yes, there will so much to tempt us in the coming few months. The warm up has started.
