We can’t quite believe how quickly time has flown by. We’ve now been officially open for a little over 3 months now, and it’s been quite a journey for us as we get to grips with our systems to provide you the best possible online shopping experience.
Of particular note was the success of attending Tatton Park’s Christmas Gift fair earlier in November. We had a fabulous time meeting so many new customers and introducing you to the Department 56 range, and hand blown Christmas baubles which brought back childhood memories for some. The only tricky point was packing the stall back up, seemed so much easier putting it up! You can find some pictures of our stall in a photo album on our Facebook page.
Many of our customers are now getting ready to setup their Christmas villages, either for the first time or as a seasoned annual display. We’d love to see your displays, so head over to our Pinterest page where you’ll be able to post pictures of your Christmas village, which can provide inspiration and ideas to others.
Department 56 has announced its annual village and giftware retirements which we’ll be updating on our website shortly, but this includes many of our current available Dickens village items, peppermint accessories and sadly the entire Simpsons village range. However, we look forward to discovering what new buildings and accessories will be introduced next year.
We are also loving the Velvet Reindeer™ and Frost™ decorations, many include exclusive hand blown and hand painted baubles with exquisite designs and other unique decorations for your tree. These have been retired, so get them whilst you can!
There’s still plenty of time though to get your home ready for the festivities. Whether you’re looking for that signature ornament, festive wreath and display trees, or wanting that extra piece for your village setup we’ve got it all here.
Wishing you a happy and stress free countdown to Christmas,
The FestiveHomeGifts.com Team. J
