With just over a week to go, here are the festive finishing touches that will dial up your decor this Christmas.
The best crackers, candles stockings and wreaths
Forget plastic toys and dubious jokes: a stylish cracker is a key element of your Christmas table. Katie Leamon’s are wrapped in marble and copper-foil designs and contain indoor sparklers and a selection of wooden toys, while Selfridges’ leopard design, with gifts including a wine stopper and padlock, is perfect for animal-print lovers. For keen cooks, Annabel James’s crackers contain baking kit, such as mini whisks and cookie cutters, while The Conran Shop’s give a bit of glam, with a silver lipstick holder or champagne stopper. Cracking indeed.
