Christmas Is In The Air

Christmas is very much in the air.

Have you finished shopping? Are the stocking fillers ready to go?

My challenge every year is to make the Santa sacks, the Christmas stockings as fun as I can. It doesn’t matter how old my children are, they still feel the holidays aren’t the holidays without them.

Mine always include many of the same items – some variety of sweets and chocolates, coloured pencils, a set of notecards or a notebook and a best seller. Apart from those bits, I work around a theme. This year’s stocking fillers are predominately red.

The decorations in Piccadilly – red reigned supreme – gave me the lead, I simply followed suit.

All things red, here we come.

A leather luggage tag, because we are a family or travellers.

Cutest beanie with a pom, pom because who doesn’t love a pom pom.

Red checked flannel pyjamas for everyone – Christmas breakfast attire.

Cashmere to stay warm and cosy.

One hand-made ornament to add to the collection.

Live, Love and Laugh notebook – love and laughter, greatest gifts.

Rouge Bougie Parfumée will warm up any interior.

Lip pencil, Lip Gloss and Ruby Woo – the trifecta of reds.

Hanky Panky signature lace shorts, because I always do.

The tartan of all tartan shirts – country weekends coming up.

An English dose of Penhaligon’s – the most delicious of all.

Seal the Santa sack with a glass alphabet ornament.

I’m nearly there. How about you? xv

LOVE everything you do, and red is the color for my smile, always. I love my white and gray and colors of nature for my home, but bring on the red contrasts for my wardrobe during the holidays! Happy Christmas dearest Vicki!

Penhaligon’s is my favorite stocking stuffer !

One year there were tickets to London in my stocking .. my husband did not grow up celebrating Christmas but he sure made up for it when he married me !

What a good idea. Will copy it next year. In australia we wish not for a white Christmas but a cool Christmas.

Yes. So right Christmas isn’t Christmas without a stocking of small 🎁 gifts. Love that you’ve done a theme though. And how good are Hanky Panky shorts? Love 💕


“The stockings are hung by the chimney with care “ We always have our stockings first thing Christmas morning! Thanks for some great ideas !

Yes to Red!
I just looked at my orange Live Love Laugh book and realized it’s definitely not the right color for the Holiday season – the red book is on my list – perfect accessory. (And the black for my husband. )
