Eat, Drink and Be Merry
For the host who prefers clinking to chopping – let our luxury hampers and yuletide essentials fill the table so you can focus on decking the halls, giving the Christmas pudding the brandy butter treatment and making memories to the tune of Mariah. Oh, and cherry florentines are always a fabulous idea too.
'Tis the Season to Get Cosy
Because we’ve never seen Santa in sequins. Outside of the parties and picture-perfect dinners, December is also prime time for hosting intimate evenings where comfort is at the top of the agenda. From gathering three-generations to watch A Christmas Carol to a games night Friendsmas with a slippers-only dress code, get inspired with our winter nights edit. Hot cocoa encouraged.
A silent night? Not when there’s a game of Monopoly involved – and who would want it any other way? Pair some healthy competition with a gourmet selection of food and drink.
All is calm, all is bright with our self-care relaxation remedy. Banish the stress of the season with warm home fragrances, calming candles and soothing skincare. Friends and The Holiday soundtrack optional.
Forget pre-emptively eating the remaining advent calendar chocolates. When you’re hosting the ultimate Santa season viewing party, guests drink Champagne from Prada coupes and eat truffle-salt popcorn from Cartier bowls – while covered in cashmere throws, of course.
