Gorgeous decorations & gifts for all.
Make Christmas 2017 special!

Relax ... it's a Christmas-music-free zone

All that Slade can get a bit much for many of us, so we stick with something gentle on the ears.

Christmas trees - real ones, xmas lights & lit faux trees, tree stands and all kinds of baubles and decorations, scented pine cones, wreaths and garlands ...

The Plant Centre is your one-stop shop for making your home look and smell delicious for the festive season and beyond.

(I like to keep my lit birch tree in the window from November until about March when the days are properly lightening up - Ed).

We stock loads of Gisela Graham and Sass & Belle, plus plenty of cute Felt (by Originals and Felt So Good).  Find fabulous quirky handpainted Hannah Turner items, plus handpainted mugs & jugs by Julia Davey

Below are some ideas for 'him' 'her' and children.
