Every year I stock up on small inexpensive gifts to give out to friends, colleagues and neighbours in the run up to Christmas. It saves a lot of time and effort compared to picking something urgently on the day, when you’re invited to a party and there are no decent shops nearby to buy a gift.
This year my theme is porcelain decorations, as they bring a bit of traditional Christmas spirit that plastic tree toys can never achieve.
Villeroy & Boch, a 260-year old German brand, does a stellar job at designing quality ceramic decorations at a reasonable price, so I thoroughly recommend you check out their website and pick a few items from their festive collections (it’s also about 30% off now!).
Just to get you going, here are a few of my favourites:
Check out their Christmas shop for inspiration and gift ideas. They deliver pretty quickly, so you still have time before Christmas.
And don’t forget to gift wrap – all Villeroy & Boch decorations come in sturdy boxes, so it’s easier to wrap.
