Struggling to think of Christmas gifts for your loved ones? Why not shop local and help support a business during the festive season or hit some of all our time favourites. From PJs to decorations and even gifts for your pets, here are some Christmas gifts that we think will look great underneath the tree.

Make it a British Christmas to remember with Marks & Spencer

Marks & Spencer is a firm family favourite and yet again the go-to destination for all things Christmas – from delicious festive food to statement homewares, there is something for everyone. One of our favs is their family PJ collection but who can’t resist a bit of sparkle too?

We LOVE their oversized baubles, classic Christmas wreaths, and metallic garlands that will add a little bit of magic to mantelpieces, windows, and hallways. Also look out this year as M&S introduces the much-loved, iconic Spencer Bear on sleepwear and super-soft onesies.

If you have a sweet tooth the Chocolate Topple Towers through to the show-stopping Starry Night Shortbread Projection Tin and Magical Gingerbread Musical House Tin should keep you happy. Don’t forget the countdown to Christmas too with their treat-filled advent calendars. M&S will make counting down to the big day fun and should be your go-to for this year’s festive favourites!

Glowbes family tradition is that every year they get a new ornament to hang on the Christmas tree.

Each ornament is proudly made in UAE and they create each Glowbe in-house and to the highest quality with prices starting at AED 288. You can shop online now and use BM15 for 15% off. This is without a doubt, the perfect gift for grandparents this Christmas.
