We have taken a break from all the Black Friday madness, and found refuge in the M&S Christmas section. Oooh it's making us feel all the cosy, festive feels and getting is excited to start decorating ASAP (hey don't judge, most people seem to have their Christmas decorations up already this year!).
They have some lovely decs, accessories and homeware that will instantly make your home feel more festive. We have rounded up our fave pieces below for some shopping inspiration, and make sure you keep your eyes peeled over on our M&S Black Friday page too for all the best deals.
Shop Christmas essentials in the M&S Black Friday sale
The M&S Black Friday sale has 40 per cent off homeware right now and we only expect the deals to get better in the run up to the 27th. We did notice there are already some Christmas cookware essentials in there, so before we get onto all the pretty decs, here are some deals not to be missed:
Set of 4 Round Woven Placemats |
No matter what your Christmas plans look like this year, you can't go wrong with adding a bit of gold to your table can you? The red version is in the sale too, so go all out and mix and match.
Porcelain StayNew™ Gravy Boat |
Not the most glamourous of Black Friday buys, but a gravy boat again is a Christmas essential. This is as elegant as gravy boats come and is perfect if you like a more traditional set up with your festive table.
Aluminium 40cm Large Non-Stick Roaster |
So you don't end up squishing the parsnips in with the potatoes, treat yourself to a new roasting dish. Great quality, great size, non-stick to make washing up easier and a great price.
Stainless Steel Meat Thermometer |
A handy gadget to have at Christmas, or anytime of the year really – a meat thermometer will help you cook your turkey (or whatever you like to have) to perfection.
1. Pick up some cute Christmas bedding
Cotton Mix Hedgehog Bedding Set | £17.50 - £29.50
It's Christmas bedding sure, but it's not overly Christmassy Christmas bedding. We love the cute hedgehog design and would definitely be pairing it with that fleece tartan throw too – the perfect suitably festive update for your bedroom.
Check out all the Black Friday bedding sales going on right now for more lovely buys.
2. Chose some retro style tableware
Tribeca StayNew™ Christmas Tree Nibble Bowl | £3
Kitschmas is back again this year and we are so okay with that. We love the nostaglic feel of retro decs and traditional (aka the 80s and 90s) tableware. This collection from M&S can be styled any way you like, but mix and match all the pieces for a quirky display. The prices start from just £3 and the is everything you need for a full dinner set – extra shoutout to the Christmas tree highball glasses!
3. Of course you need stockings... and a sack and a Christmas eve box
Alphabet Christmas Stocking | £12.50
Because it wouldn't be Christmas without a stocking hanging somewhere in your house. Love the traditional look of these M&S ones, almost like you DIYd them yourself. They also have some very cute Christmas sacks, and the new festive essential some Christmas Eve boxes.
4. Make your home smell all festive
Mandarin Cinnamon & Clove Candle | £9.50
This candle has been all over Instagram with fans claiming it's a dupe for more expensive smelling festive candles out there – you know the ones that don't smell of sickly sweet cookies and spice. This one is subtle but still Christmassy and a bit of a bargain too!
5. Don't forget to decorate the bathroom!
2 Pack Pure Cotton Christmas Towels | £10
Is it just us or is there something a bit retro about Christmas towels? They just make us feel a bit nostalgic and these cute prints are no exception. The perfect ways to bring a few festive vibes into a room that's pretty much ignored went it comes to festive decor.
