Christmas came early this year for me thanks to the wonderful team at The White Company…
For some, October simply means Halloween. For others, who are so well organized it’s the countdown to Christmas and you’ve probably already started writing up your gift lists and are already deciding who has been naughty and who has been nice.
I’m already feeling a little flustered by it all. Christmas cards and mince pies line the aisles of the supermarkets where Pimms and picnic blankets dazzled not too long ago!
To ease the stress, the wonderful folks at The White Company were kind enough to send me a survival kit packed full with goodies to help me through the festive season.
The White Company – Sloe Gin Votive £12
This limited edition candle has a surprisingly cosy yet refreshing scent. A mixture of succulent sloe berries, spicy juniper and juicy plum damson with a touch of coriander bring this favourite drink to life in candle form. Beautifully packaged in a ribbed glass votive complete with cello-wrapping and a gift tag making it a perfect little treat for somebody – Boys, get a few in… you won’t be disappointed!
Made by the experts at Johnstons of Elgin in Scotland, these exquisitely soft socks are a real treat for your feet. Winter is about treating yourself and your loved ones and let’s be honest, we all love getting snuggly in bed with a good movie after a long week. I’ve already put another two pairs on my ‘Dear Santa’ list!
Perfect for jotting down to-do lists and keeping organized over the festive season. I’ve already started writing and drawing gift wrapping ideas in mine.
White Fine Wood Frame £20
I love monochrome photo frames and am building up quite the collection to adorn my walls with.
Flowers Bath Foam Decanter £18
It has to be said, I’m more of a shower kind of man. However, it is great to indulge oneself every once in a while and this bath foam certainly helps. Guys, don’t be put off by the name, ‘Flowers’ has a subtle scent with a blend of jasmine, rose, neroli, lavender and geranium.
There were also a couple of other goodies included in the form of a cheeky bottle of Sipsmith Gin (will come in handy!) and a tin of indulgent Hot Chocolate – the season is upon us: Cashmere socks, hot chocolate with whipped cream and Christmas movies!
