Our Christmas buyer, Charlotte, talks about the inspiration behind each theme and her "top picks" from each collection.

"After an extremely challenging year for retail, it has been more difficult than ever to pull together Christmas ranges at a time when no one really knew what position the country would be in. With travel not possible and showrooms closed all across the globe, we had to learn a new way of buying and select products digitally for the very first time. Choosing matching products and colour palettes for each theme without physically seeing the products  was a very difficult task. Conscious that consumer shopping habits were changing and suppliers were not able to offer many new designs due to issues with production, we were still determined to pull together Christmas themes that were both inspiring and unique to previous seasons. It is so rewarding to finally be able to showcase our Christmas selections this year and provide our customers with some gorgeous ranges."

One Upon a Wintertime

Once Upon a Winter TimeThis fairytale-inspired theme is full of imagination and whimsical wonder. Set in a dream-like land where happily ever after's really do come true. Blush pink tones sit here amongst carriages, unicorns and glass slippers, setting the scene for the perfect enchanted Christmas.

Santa's Workshop

A traditional Christmas theme with a twist; candy canes, nutcrackers, gonks and all things red and white. Hand-picked straight from the North Pole, this theme is a festive favourite year after year. Spots, stripes and tartan prints with monochrome hints give this trend a contemporary finish.

Jolly Jungle

Jolly JungleYou really can go wild with this quirky theme. However, a tree full of safari animals may not be to everyone's taste. You will find deep shades of tropical greens and golden tones within this range to subtly embrace this theme. A Christmas trend with an exotic twist, botanical-inspired prints and animal skins bring this trend to life along with jungle creatures and bees, beetles and dragonflies.

Beside the Sea

Beside the Sea

This ever-so-popular theme from last year returns with just as much whimsical charm. A Christmas trend with a difference, think blue hues and dusty coral pinks mixed with shimmering silvers for an underwater glow. Shell-like textures and aquatic creatures define this modernized theme, adorned with intricate beading that replicates the barrier reefs. The soft pastel shades mix well with metallic accents and the pieces are easily incorporated into any theme. Once again you don't have to commit fully to the theme, you can pick your favourite decorations to make your tree really stand out.
