Selection of Christmas items from Selfridges

There’s a branch of Selfridges in Manchester city centre so it’s always a stop off point on our annual Christmas shopping trip to the city. Its food hall in the basement is very good for finding little Christmas Day morsels that you may not treat yourself to the rest of the year. Here’s a selection of other items that took our fancy…

  1. St Nicolas velvet Christmas stocking 60cm: £99
  2. Acqua di Parma Gold Berries candle: £72
  3.  Meri Meri nutcracker themed cracker kit: £21.95
  4. Philippa Craddock Classic door wreath: £175
  5. Adopt a Reindeer gift box: £19.99
  6. Victoria Eggs Christmas dinner mug: £11.95

Many, many years ago in the London sales, we bought an Yves St Laurent orange bath towel set from Selfridges. They were beautiful, soft & fluffy when we got them; but now, with constant use and laundering, they’ve become a bit faded, thin & threadbare.

We’ve been looking for replacements for a while now – but the ones we’ve been seeing in the shops have all been the wrong shade of orange. You know the hue – a bit salmon or terracotta – not that knockout tangerine that we love.

Now, just like the proverbial buses, we’ve found three shops that have examples that are just right!
