Let the Christmas countdown begin!
While there are people who may roll their eyes at Christmas chat in November, we’re all a little giddy over here. Petro, who’s been squirrelling away kids’ gifts for months (she’s a planner), has already crossed most people off her list. She’s even stock-piled a few hostess gifts to avoid that last-minute panic en route to the party.
Meanwhile Laura, who may be our biggest festive fan of all, likes to save everything for December so she can savour the rush of gift buying, wrapping and giving in three, party-filled weeks. To be fair, she takes more time planning the little (non-plastic) trinkets, treats and tickets that go into her daughter’s fabric advent calendar, as well as presents for those impossible-to-buy-for friends.
LF & PS’s shopping approach may differ, but they’re both obsessed with their Christmas Day table-setting (Laura is going with winter forest, while Petro has a pink and red thing going on), and Petro is already stocking her kitchen with festive food. And let’s not forget the tree: nostalgic and traditional decorations reign supreme (just never, ever mention tinsel in Laura’s presence).
As for their own wish lists, Petro’s is loaded with wardrobe-building statement pieces, while Laura’s obsession with Christmas extends to her gifts too, which tend to be focused on festive fashion. But they’re both lusting after everything on our Icons and dream ticket gift pages, which we recommend forwarding to loved ones who want to spoil you (in a meaningful way).
Needless to say, it’s a joyful time here at Wardrobe ICONS HQ.
