I can scarcely believe that it's less than five months until Christmas!
As ever, Debenhams had unique and interesting ways of presenting their collection
I recognised a few items from their AW15 press day but there were plenty of new products on display too.
There was certainly lots of Christmas gift inspiration
I know someone who would love these drone sets!
These glittery retro sweet cups are right up my sisters street!
And one of my best friends would love this bunny cushion!
Debenhams also featured a personalised selection of gifts, hampers and bouquets
Seeing their festive season party dresses got me all excited for Christmas and NYE!
.... however Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a Christmas jumper!
... or Christmas pyjamas. How cute are this gingerbread man pair?
... and let's not forget festive table decoration inspiration. I loved their silver woodland theme!
Also on the agenda for today was a Christmas cookie decorating session - the finished designs hung up as Christmas decorations, or for the less patient.... nibbled upon there and then!
I loved this next use of visual merchandising. The whole ideal of waking up on Christmas morning and finding gifts around the fireplace, feeling like a kid again. Anyone would be excited to wake up and find these particular knee high boots and bags on Christmas morning!
And the award for my favourite item goes to... I'll take these in a UK size 6 please!
Oh I do love a cape
Copper pans. Need I say more?
Imagine receiving one of these beautiful boxes tied with with a red bow on Christmas day and inside finding one of these beauties. I love the plum set and the red (bottom centre and right)
Those leather gloves though
This red dress with the beautiful lace overlay. LOVE
And more of my favourite.... lace. But this time in my favourite colour!
I was literally about to leave when a lady came over and asked if I'd like a bouquet of flowers to take home with me. The bouquet in question was composed of the most beautiful red roses and what looks like thistles. These were on display on the day so was a lovely little memento to take home.
A huge thank you to the Debenhams team for inviting me. Never did I think I could feel festive and excited for Christmas as early as July, but I've been proven wrong! Roll on Christmas!
