First up is this delicious Tiramisu Panettone from Ardens and Amici. From sumptuous Panettone made with all-butter and baked to a traditional Italian recipe to regional specialities like Ricciarelli and Panforte, Arden & Amici’s seasonal selection is perfect for celebrating the festive season the Italian way.

Books are always a good choice and for a craft lover who is always on the look out for new hobbies how about a craft book. These fabulous books from publishing house SewandSo are great for both beginner and established crafters. I love the idea of making home ware from cardstock and paper, simply folding the way to a new lampshade or vase! As for sewing, quilts are a huge love of mine and I would love to create heirlooms to pass down to the girls and my grand kids. RRP: £15.99 each
Everyone loves a festive DVD and whether it is a golden oldie like It’s A Wonderful Life or a classic like The Snowman, there is something comforting about sitting down together to watch a good movie this time of year. Maybe you have a touch of bah humbug about you and prefer The Grinch. Whatever you want to watch this festive season there will always be a Christmas movie to suit your mood. RRP: From £3.95 available from all good stockists.
If you read my blog you will know that I collect the Wonder Woman Pop Vinyls and Funkos. How cute is this Wonder Woman 3D Character light from Paladone, available in lots of different characters and battery operated this little cutie will be adorning my bedside table, watching over me! RRP: £11.99
Everyone loves chocolate, add in some peanut butter and the name on everyones lips is Reeses! Filled with every Reeses invention you can find, from cups to snowmen and trees, the lovers collection is a sweet treat for all! RRP: from £3.50 available Tesco
All year round I could eat cheese 24/7 but at Christmas I love to crack out the specialty ones, the ones with fruity fillings and soft cheeses with nuts etc! Mmm! I would love it if someone gave me a selection of cheeses for Christmas so this had to go on my list, a slate board with 3 Snowdonia cheeses (I could eat the Black Bomber like an apple!) Available individually or as gifts this is one website that is well worth a look at this Christmas. RRP: from £4.50
We go through tubs of sweets at Christmas more than any other time of year and long gone are the days of chocolate and toffee, this year its all about retro sweets and candy. Everyone loves Swizzels, the combination of Drumstick lollies, Refreshers, Double Dip packs and so much more make these a firm favourite with all. RRP: £4.00 from Tesco
For something a little special to pop into stockings or as a one of a kind treat why not buy one of these super cute Snowboys and Snowgirls from Peggy Porschen. I have drooled over Peggy’s stores and cookbooks for a long time now and love to recreate the recipes, nothing however comes close to a store bought treat! RRP: £10.95 from Peggy Porschen Belgravia
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is the movie on everyones mind right now. I have only seen the first one and really do need to get to see the second one before Christmas as the girls have been asking for Nifflers and goodies for months now. How cute is this trinket tray from Paladone is an ideal little storage dish for coins or jewellery, I can see Evie hanging all of her bracelets and rings from his nose! RRP: £11.99

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
