Working in eCommerce, the word Christmas comes about fairly early. Planning for it comes about when most of us are still looking forward to our summer holiday. So when I got invited to a Christmas event for TKMaxx and HomeSense in July, I wasn’t entirely surprised.
The event was in London and I found out my lovely friend Kay (and Mummy Blogger extraordinaire) was also attending. We met up an hour or so before the event for a couple of cocktails and a catch up.
That week the UK was in the middle of a heatwave so it felt a little odd walking into a large room decked out with Christmas decorations sweltering from the unusual 30 degree heat.
However, being a big fan of Christmas, it got the big kid in me a little excited about the festivities.
The event showcased all the essentials like the wreath, the tree and various baubles that you need for the big day; whilst highlighting other decorative pieces that really make your home come alive at Christmas.
James was also in town attending a meeting but joined us a little later to see what HomeSense and TKMaxx had to offer.
I was surprised to see he was so interested in the glittery reindeer, but could relate to his excitement of the cocktail shakers with colours varying in silvers, coppers and golds.
The unique selection that has been picked out by HomeSense and TKMaxx is now available in their stores. Now that Bonfire Night is out the way, we have no reason not to start getting a little excited about Christmas.
