An annual decision is often the choice of decoration palette; whether to opt for traditional colors of red or green or, alternately, try something different. If in need of inspiration, ring in the changes at Robinsons, where you’ll find decorations from John Lewis & Partners. From wreaths to baubles, and lights to stockings, the brand has curated five collections. The nostalgic Traditions collection adds a contemporary touch through reimagined prints, motifs, and twists.

The Snowscape collection includes a palette of crisp whites, soft creams, and subtle shimmer. Those with an affection for nature and all things green will enjoy the Garden Retreat collection, while the Tourism collection includes ornaments inspired by Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and the Union Jack. Ensure the larder is well stocked, too, with some moreish crumbly, sweet yet zesty mince pies from Marks & Spencer. You’ll find a range for the whole family to enjoy, including glutenfree options from the brand’s new Made Without range. The traditional treats in-all butter shortcrust pastry are filled with currants and topped with nutty frangipane and crunchy flaked almonds and are delicious served cold or warm or with a drizzle of cream.
