Get ahead with our Christmas Shopping Day

Make a date for Wednesday 7th November for our Christmas Shopping Day.

We’ll be launching our Christmas accessories and showcasing some of the wonderful furniture we have available for Pre Christmas delivery.

Last minute need for a larger dining table – not a problem .

Extra guests over the festive season – we have the perfect bed.

Pop in and have a chat, and a mince pie (or two) while browsing through some of the wonderful accessories to make your home special this coming festive season.

We’re even open longer – until 8pm so you can always pop in after work.

Why not visit our friends over the road at Bay View Garden Centre too – they have a fantastic selection of gifts and decorations along with wonderful food in the Alium Eatery.

To make a house a home finishing touches are needed. These finishing touches come in the form of home accessories, which tell the story about you and allow you to really express yourself.

For a fresh seasonal change, decorative cushions and throws will add an instant festive feel to your home, or you could invest in a new floor rug or mat to instantly change the look and feel of a room whilst keeping your toes cosy at the same time.

An instant and inexpensive way to update your home is to add decorative throws and cushions, which is why we love our new collection of soft furnishings, especially the Christmassy ones.

Christmas is a feeling, more than anything. It is a unique but humanly universal feeling, of childhood memories and joy, of people we love or loved, of places we belonged.

It’s the time to be with family and friends so make sure you get your home looking perfect just in time for Christmas.

Do you need a bigger dining room table and chairs…Just in time for Christmas?
Do you need a new sofa or three piece suite…Just in time for Christmas?
Do you need a new bed or bedroom suite…Just in time for Christmas?
Do you need a few Christmassy accessories for a bit of HO HO HO?

Whilst you take care of the big stuff here are some brilliant and easy ways to make your house full of festive cheer!

That Christmas smell!

Add cinnamon sticks, pine needles, mandarin oranges, cloves and whatever else smells like home and Christmas to you and simmer in a pan of water until your house smells like delicious, Christmassy goodness.

Sparkly footprints!

Presumably you have an elf on the shelf, you’ve chewed some of Rudolph’s carrot for the edge of realism and quite happily drank down Santa’s sherry. So how else can you authenticate the big man in a red suit? How about powdering glitter and icing sugar around a pair of boots near the fireplace so it looks like Santa has just stepped out of your fireplace? It’ll go down a storm with the kids.

Vases full of festive cheer!

Have some spare vases around the house? Instead of filling them with flowers, with not fill them with candy canes, gingerbread and chocolate coins for everyone to snack on.

Table decorations!

Pop some baubles into upside down wine glasses with tea light candles on top to add quick and easy Christmas flair to your table setting.

Outdoorsy fun!

Since those flower pots have been rendered useless in the cold weather, why not pop one one either side of your door, then fill it with spare pine branches, pine cones and a few baubles?

Tasty treats!

Homemade mulled wine and cider will not only go down a treat with your family, it’ll also make your house smell divine, and will probably have your neighbours casually dropping by for a chat and to drink up your reserves. Fortunately it’s extremely easy to make, and Rekorderlig winter cider has to be the best booze for the job!

The best way of spreading Christmas cheer!

Everyone is allowed to have excruciating taste in tunes over the festive period, and so as long as there is something about ‘Santa’, ‘Jingle Bells’ or ‘Merry’, in the lyrics it should be instantly approved. With that in mind, why not try Now That’s What I Call Christmas, or Michael Buble’s Christmas.
