On a recent trip to the capital for a short break with a relative, we decided to take in one or two of the very major stores in the main shopping areas of Oxford and Bond Streets. One particular one had a fantastic Christmas Town all bedecked with the most incredible display of decorations, party ideas, gifts for young and old. I can’t recall ever having been to a store and seeing such a beautifully crafted and displayed creation.
We spent what felt like hours poring over the gorgeous models and fairytale settings before moving on to a wonderland of board games, toys, puzzles, craft sets – you name it, we must have seen it. It would be impossible to narrow down a choice if pushed. I am so glad I source all my purchases via online emporiums – I can budget and keep on track without going mad and crippling my own economy!
