Getting ready for Christmas with Festive Decor for the Home & Garden: Featuring Laura Ashley, The White Company, Selfridges & John Lewis


Christmas is on its way, and while some people are avoiding it, I love getting the house ready for the festivities.

Most people don’t put their decorations up until the start of December, but I’ve selected a few of my favourite pieces which will give the home a hint of Christmas, saving most of the hard work until later.

They can all be bought from Give as you Live retailers which means they will raise funds for my favourite charity this Christmas.

Sparkling lights
Lights can make a big difference to a room. Here are a few Christmassy lights that will give your home a sparkle.

This clear reindeer is perfect for the Christmas season and is also available in a larger size. Its £15 and Laura Ashley will donate up to 3% to the charity of your choice.

This Jade floor lamp is a silver metal globe which allows light to filter softly through flower and leaf shaped perforations. At £120 it would be a stylish addition to your home, John Lewis will donate up to 2.5% to your favourite cause.
Cosy throws
There’s nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa under a cosy throw, for one of those classic Winter films. Here’s a selection of throws available from Give as you Live retailers.

This chocolate satin quilt is soft and luxurious. At £200 it doesn’t come cheap but Feather & Black will donate up to 3% of that to the charity of your choice.

This soft Mohair throw is £99 from Selfridges. It’s cream, will match with any chosen decor and will be sure to keep you cosy & warm while curled up on the sofa. Selfridges will donate up to 4% to your favourite cause.
Festive accessories
Here are some subtle, but quirky accessories to add to your home this Winter. This sign will let visitors know that you are feeling festive, and will give them some Christmas cheer as well. John Lewis will donate up to 2.5% to your favourite cause.
This frosted leaf garland will look fantastic draped over a mirror or mantelpiece. It is subtlety frosted and can be decorate further with baubles and lights. The White Company will donate up to 2.5% to the charity of your choice.
