Christmas at John Lewis 2013

The life of a freelancer can be a little isolated so it was a real treat to find myself in the land of actual people on Tuesday at the John Lewis Cardiff Christmas press event. I had already been starting to think about Christmas and seeing all their gorgeous Christmas items was like receiving great visual dollops of festive spirit. The new catalogue is out now and you can see a lot of the items on the John Lewis Christmas website, but these were a few of my favourites.

There were lots of robins in various guises

Scandi-chic 45cm high robin £40

A small robin (£12) on a shelf, guarding the sweeties   

Origami owl and robin appliqued stocking £18

Embroidered felt zipped pouch with sweeties.

Glittering, colourful baubles

Woodland Wonder range £2 - £4 each

Odyssey Range £2.50 - £4 each
Pom Pom bauble from the Forest Festival Range £2.50

In fact I love the whole Forest Festival theme

There was also a great assortment of delicious goodies (and plenty of tasters... thanks JL)

If you find yourself lacking in Christmas cheer a few minutes browsing in John Lewis will soon sort you out.
