If you have started to think in your Christmas decorations this suggestion is for you. You should shop some things early and prepare this great event with some time. Here you can know the best Christmas Shops in London. I hope it will be useful.
Always first off the mark when it comes to retail matters, Harrods opened Christmas World – covering 2,000 sq ft of shop floor – back in July. With its opulent red carpets and gold trimmings, it’s as gaudy and glitzy as you might expect, boasting Elliot Raffit and Michael Aram luxury decorations and a 6ft model Santa Claus – yours for £3,999. Don’t miss out on this year’s red cardigan-clad Harrods bear, Sebastian, £24.95. They usually sell out in the run up to Christmas so get yours early.
Up on the fourth floor between the excellent new toy department and Food Garden café, the Selfridges Christmas shop is bursting with everything you could require for a stylish Yuletide including knitted pudding decorations, traditional advent calendars and luxury Christmas crackers. Just look for the life-sized Polar bears.
We can’t think of a more festive shop than 307-year-old Fortnum and Mason. The entire store becomes a winter wonderland bedecked in opulent decorations and the most glorious foodie treats, from specialist biscuits presented in Christmas Merry-Go-Round tins to children’s hampers, since £45, featuring traditional sweets and fashion crackers by London designer Holly Fulton.
For a lovely, traditional array of Christmas bits and bobs in a festive setting, Liberty is your place. The Christmas shop, open from Sept 7, sits on the fourth floor in the East Gallery and East Atrium. Look out for old-fashioned Christmas wreaths, stuffed toys and baubles galore, including framed pictures of the Queen. Liberty crackers are among the prettiest on the market, too.
Christmas decorations don’t get smarter than those you’ll find at the Conran Shop; coloured-Perspex deers, Missoni-esque glitter balls and retro-style glass sea horses. The Blue Room has been transformed into a stylish Christmas market.
We love Heal’s super-cool new look. This year the Christmas shop will inhabit the ground floor from Oct 24 while real fir trees, some of them strewn with customers’ wishes, will decorate the inside and outside of the store. Go here for statement decorations and super-stocking fillers like gorgeously packaged Italian soaps and Missoni face cloths.
When it comes to buying your festive trappings, Paperchase has it covered. Come here for a glittering selection of decorations from traditional tartan covered baubles to glass pugs and retro disco balls.
This year, the first floor of the Tottenham Court Road flagship also homes an inspiring selection of classic children’s toys and home wares by designers brands including Vilac. The classy book department stocks glossy art, design and craft titles – all excellent gift fodder for the creative in your life.
As museum shops go, the V&A’s airy store has got to be the most festive. Find a lovely array of classic decorations, cards – including vintage Harper’s Bazaar covers – and a fine selection of stocking fillers. As well as a mighty selection of beautiful art, fashion and design books, you’ll find all sorts of crafty delights such as handmade felt puppets for kids, Indian floor cushions and accessories by Welsh textile label Melin Tregwynt.
London’s least intimidating department store has everything you could ever require to make Christmas go with a bang. As well as the vast selection of tree decorations, wrapping paper and baubles, you’ll find the best range of fake Christmas trees – and, at 10ft, the tallest – on the high street. It’s also ace for table decorations.
The flagship Oxford Street branch has just undergone a huge £25million renovation due to be complete just in time for Christmas shopping. Until then, you’ll have to walk through the hoardings. The Christmas shop will be open from mid-September on the fourth floor and will feature a good supply of festive trimmings including Christmas stockings, table top trees, garlands, wooden advent calendars and felt trees. Look out for lots of three-for-two offers.
Hope you have a great Christmas! Have fun shopping.
