Ideal Home (UK) - - Editor’s Letter - Vanessa Vanessa Rich­mond, Ed­i­tor

It feels like I start think­ing about Christ­mas as soon as the lit­tlest Rich­monds go back to school at the end of sum­mer. But then the next thing I know, it’s sud­denly Novem­ber and I haven’t bought a sin­gle gift or even writ­ten a sin­gle ‘to do/buy’ list! Get­ting the ba­sics done is an or­gan­i­sa­tional feat, given ev­ery­thing else that’s go­ing on – carol con­certs, work par­ties and catch­ing up with friends – so adding mag­i­cal touches that make Christ­mas spe­cial can be a stretch for a tired mum, aun­tie or gran. That’s where this is­sue comes in! From per­son­alised tins of Qual­ity Street and Christ­mas Eve boxes, to Ad­vent cal­en­dars for the dog, ve­gan cheese­boards and span­gly stock­ings, there’s some­thing to sur­prise and de­light ev­ery­one you love…
