Prepare yourself I am dropping the festive bomb. Yes there is no denying that Christmas is fast approaching and frankly I am excited, and what better way to get ourselves in that fa la la la laaaaa mood, than kicking back with Not on the High Street Christmas press show.
I adore NOTHS and can spend hours perusing their website adding far too many things to my wish list. I was lucky enough to be invited to NOTHS Christmas in July, YES JULY, to get a sneak peak on this year’s hottest items, bespoke gift ideas, demos, and gorgeous decor to see us through December.
It is safe to say it was really hard for me to whittle down my favourites from the press show. I have given it a good go and I could go on for reams and reams but I won’t because frankly a picture says a thousand words.
|| Countdown to the big day with these Advent Calendar ideas ||
Gin behind every door, 24 reasons why I love you, beer flavoured truffles and a fortune a day. We are taking advent calendars to a new realm this year and it makes me question why we cannot have a different advent calendar for every month of the year.
A simple White Christmas table setting. I love these plates, each with a ceramic table placement to give that personalised touch.
|| Marmor Paperie ||
I watched Lucy make these bespoke baubles and my god was it mesmerising. I got to pick my own colours and took away my very own marbled decoration that is so pretty that I have put it up already. Who says these need to be for Christmas only!
|| Espresso Martini Cocktail Kit|| Rose Copper Cocktail Glass || Overdid It on the Bubbles Kit|| Pimp your Gin Kit || Metallic Watercolour Velvet Pouch || Himalayan Salt Shot Glasses || Personalised Leather Wallet || Happiness Planner || Personalised Tartan Shawl ||
An overwhelming collection of gifts for her to meet every price range, I simply cannot pick just one. The personalised blankets are oh so cosy, the chic purses ooze sophistication and rose copper cocktail kit, who wouldn’t want to sip a cosmopolitan out of that.
|| Not on the High Street Northern Lights ||
Okay so you may not be able to erect a present around your table but we are giving Christmas decorations and baubles and new purpose and lease of life.
|| Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur || Personalised Decanter || Coco Chocolatier 12 Coco Bar Box ||Super Chunky Hand Knitted Throw || Two Tone Sequin Cushion || Personalised Watch & Phone Stand || Luxury Hunter Flask ||
I could have literally played with the two tone sequin cushion all day long. Surprisingly soft and looks gorgeous against that chunky knit blanket that you just want to snuggle in. For him you have the personalised decanter, the leather flask and a never lose your phone again, personalised wooden stand.
Geometric jewellery is here to stay and who can blame it when it looks this good. I certainly have my eye on some.
|| Lavish Slice ||
Almost too cute to eat, the lovely lady behind Lavish Slice has the most steady hand I have ever seen. Not only covering all things Christmassy, she does an array of biscuits and I can confirm her biscuits are delicious.
Not on The High Street you are full of wonderful things and my wish list is loooonnng. It is safe to say that a lot of the gifts on show do not have to be just for Christmas and make for the perfect gift all year round, minus the advent calendars which is a shame, I’d love an advent for the whole year!
Do you have a favourite that has just gone onto your wish list? Do you have a go to shop on NOTHS? Let me know.
