Here in the UK Mother’s day is right around the corner so I have put together a few gift ideas to treat the great women in our lives.
Mentioning the big C word this early in the year is pretty strange but companies and brands are already beginning to showcase all of the goodies they have coming out over the festive periods. I was kindly invited two ‘Christmas in July’ events; one for Tesco and the other for Not On The Highstreet; both of which, I must admit have now made me so excited for December and the festive season.
The Not On The Highstreet event showcased a while host of products from Chocolates that are shaped like Brussel Sprouts, glittery cushions and Prosecco themed Christmas jumpers. My personal favourite were the rose gold martini glasses that decorated the long dining table in the centre of the room. There was so much selection for everyone including men and children which I thought was great as it really gave you a good view of what NOTHS have coming on their site. Each room that you went into was escorted with Christmas trees and other decorations and the quite hum of Christmas songs couldn’t help but make you feel a little bit excited.
The Tesco event was slightly different as it focused a lot on the food, which I definitely thought was great. The event was designed to take you through the stages of Christmas from the night before, the morning and the evening when everyone finds themselves way too full and asleep on the sofa. It was great to learn about all the new food and treats that are making their way into stores and to be able to try them. I don’t want to give too much away but all I’m going to say is red velvet muffins! Again, it was so surreal to be walking around trying turkey and stuffing, listening to Christmas music while it was boiling hot outside but it did make me feel super festive. I even had my first mince pie of the year!
Thank you so much to NOTHS and Tesco for inviting me to come along and see what great things are coming from you both!
