How To Make Your Home Christmas Ready #1

Friday, November 03, 2017
Dare I say it...Christmas! I don't know how this year has gone by so quickly as last Christmas (don't sing it!) seems like it was only a few months ago and it's almost here again. October went by far too quickly and we can now say that Christmas is next month which is madness. While I'm not a massive fan of Christmas, I do love gift giving and the cosy decor at this time of the year and I wish fairy lights, Christmas trees and tinsel were a year round decor option but sadly not.

Today's post is all about how to make your home Christmas ready, winter appropriate and my essential homeware items for this year of the year. Thanks to Happy Linen Company, Bolsius, Amphora Aromatics and Red Candy for these gorgeous cosy homeware items!
*Happy Linen Company Shetland Stags Duvet Cover & Pillow Case Set (£25.95)
Let's start with one of the cosiest items and one that is the most needed at this time of the year - a super cosy, soft duvet cover and pillow case set. I have the king size option (230cm x 220cm) but there are options from a single (138cm x 200cm) to a super king (260cm x 220cm) size. I adore the stag design as I think it's great for this time of the year, the colours are so cosy and homely and the material is incredibly soft and comfortable - it makes me not want to get out of bed each morning even though I'm a morning person!

I live in Manchester, England so I'm used to the rain and cold but recently it's started to turn very chilly so this set has been an essential already and it isn't even winter yet! Another great thing about this set is that it is reversible so you can have this gorgeous creamy, red and taupe colour option or you can have a more brown and cream colour option to suit your bedroom decor and colour scheme. I'd definitely recommend checking out Happy Linen Company as they have a great range of duvet sets that are perfect for this time of the year. You can use the code: NOVEMBER15 to get 15% off your order (they also have free UK mainland delivery).
*Bolsius Autumn Walk Diffuser 
I adore candles at this time of the year but you can't always have them on so diffusers are a great way of adding a constant scent without being a potential fire hazard. We have a diffuser is almost every main room of the house and this one is currently in the hallway as it adds such a lovely musky, slightly festive scent when someone comes into the house. Also the packaging is simple and unassuming so it can be added to any room without looking out of place or odd. The scent isn't very strong but it's great for the price and I'd definitely recommend this brand, especially the candles which are so inexpensive.
Mini Leaf Fairy Lights (£13.50)
There are a few products that signify cosiness and hygge feelings such as candles, blankets and soft cushions but the main item for me that brings out comforting, homely and inviting feelings are fairy lights. I have fairy lights on my bookshelves all year round as they are gorgeous but it's this time of the year when they are more acceptable all around the house so I'm taking full advantage.

I bought these fairy lights a few months ago as blog props...#BloggerProblems but I've been using them everywhere. I think they look fantastic on the headboard with the Happy Linen Company Stag set as the two together have a cosy, natural woodland theme going on which I adore for the colder months and festive season. I'd definitely recommend these lights as they can be used outside, they are really sturdy, they look so cute and for the price, they are perfect for the upcoming festive season.
*Thomas Kent Hare Clock via Red Candy (£24)
I've already mentioned these final two items within a recent womens gift guide but I had to mention them again as they are ideal festive and wintery homeware items. This cute, mantelpiece clock is perfect for your living room as it too has a cosy forest theme and the flowers, leaves and animals on the clock give me all of the cosy, woodland feelings. I think it would also make a lovely gift this Christmas.

*Amphora Aromatics Orange & Clove Diffuser (£13.50)
Last but not least is one of my current favourite homeware items and the most impressive diffusers I've ever tried. The scent of this diffuser is the essence of Christmas for me and every time I walk past it, it is lovely and the strength of the scent is perfect. It's strong, I love the packaging and I cannot recommend it enough!

Have you tried any of these products? What are your favourite festive or wintery homeware items?
