Where has the year gone? I cant believe we are already taking about Christmas 2017. A great time of the year for you to spend with your loved ones and show them some love with gifts. Many of us struggle with finding the right kind of gifts for our loved ones because stores are saturated with generic Christmas gift boxes. This is the reason why it is wise to plan a bit in advance so that way you do not end up buying the same recycled generic gifts made to look attractive on shop shelves and window displays. I took the chance to visit Debenhams at the ‘Christmas in July’ Press show where they showcased items to expect in stores over the festive season. From Fashion to Lifestyle gift sets Debenhams have absolutely smashed it this year, and it is fair to say that I am pretty excited for shoppers.
Expect to see the classic velvet blazers, and the perfect accessories such as pocket squares, Fedora hats and silk scarves to make any man look dapper for hitting those Christmas parties. Create the perfect gift hamper by throwing in some clothing items like socks and scarves and lifestyle items like a whisky flask or a grooming set.
Style Tip: Invest in a black or midnight blue blazer which is classic for any and every occasion. You can wear this multiple times, all you have to do is re-style with accessories such as pocket squares and scarves to change up the look – no one would know its the same blazer.
Sequins and glittering fabrics could never go wrong when it comes to finding the right dress for Christmas parties. Debenhams designers have reinvented this classic favourite by mixing it up with the embroidery trend we have seen in spring and summer. When it comes to fragrances, a His and Hers perfume such as the newly launched Emporio Armani ‘Stronger with you’ fragrance is strongly recommended for any couple.
Have you got a kid, niece or nephew? Children are happily pleased even with the most basic gift nicely wrapped up. Debenhams have great sock filler gifts for the younger generation. In the fashion corner for kids, expect nicely tailored smart jackets and suits for the boys and dresses for the girls. Find mini Santa outfits as well in their Christmas clothing range.
Christmas is a time for showing love by sharing and creating memories with your loved ones. I hope this post has helped you to start thinking in advance so you can avoid last minute preparations.
