Wrapping paper – the WH Smith way

There is something comforting to me that WH Smith still has a great presence on our high street and at our railway stations.  I think this is because they offer such a fabulous range of cards, magazines and stationery.  When I go into my local branch it really is filled to the rafters with things you want to buy.  I particularly love the stationery and I have done since I was a child.  I also think they have some of the best Christmas Cards and wrapping paper on the High Street.  I was pleased to see the 2016 is just a fabulous as ever.

I do love a bit of shimmer at Christmas so the glittered paper is particularly stunning.  Whilst red is always one of the beautifully rich colours of Christmas I might make a change this year and go more blue/silver.  I particularly like the glittered stag and star wrapping paper as it conjures up the prettiness of a star filled sky on Christmas Eve followed brilliance of a crisp frosty morning with maybe a stag in the field next to our house – maybe a deer at least!

Bit of a Waitrose Morning

One of the main attractions for shopping in Waitrose, apart from the wonderful food, is the free coffee and newspaper.  As I am incredibly dedicated to all things Christmas, I was delighted to see that Waitrose takeaway cups have been given the yearly Christmas makeover.

This together with my Christmas paper and tags purchase made me feel very Christmasy indeed.  Even if it is bit early to be purchasing Christmas Wrapping paper, I need to do this when the children are not with my unless I face a forensic line of questioning as to why I am buying Christmas wrapping paper as it is most definitely Father Christmas who should be doing that!  This kind of questioning can last for a very long time and throws up a host of other questions such as ‘How does Father Christmas fit down our Chimney?’  ‘He won’t really go into our bedrooms with our stockings, will he?’ and ‘Why does Father Christmas Drink all the drink left out for him and eat the mince pie but Rudolph leaves his carrot?’  This is really like putting Mummy in the dock and seeing when she cracks!  Now all I need to do is find a place to hide the wrapping paper and remind Rudolph that carrots are good for him.
