Christmas In October With Debenhams


We've officially hit Christmas on my blog and I couldn't be any more excited! I get so happy when the Christmas blogger events start coming in in October as I am a proper winter baby. So you can imagine my joy when two Christmas event emails dropped into my inbox for the same day! I thought I'd kick off the Christmas season on my blog with the Debenhams Christmas blogger event because let's face it, Debenhams kill it for Christmas.



Last week I bundled myself and my cameras off on the train to Manchester for the amazing Debenhams Christmas blogger event. Debenhams is one of my go-to places for Christmas shopping as the gifts they have in every year are incredible and you are guaranteed to find the perfect gift for those hard to buy for people in your life.

This year the event was held in the Libary Lounge of the Great John Street Hotel which was the perfect room for the event. Welcomed with delicious berry mojitos and canapes, we were given plenty of time to have a mooch around and take pictures till our heart's content. They filled every nook and cranny with gift inspiration from womenswear, menswear, kidswear, foodie gifts and stocking fillers. They even thought of presents for your pets! There was also a pamper corner from BlowLTD, who's new counter has just launched in Debenhams Manchester this week, they were offering nail treatments as well as hair styling to get you all glammed up.

As well as having gifting galore, they also had the stunning Matthew Williamson Christmas collection which is going to be my go-to collection to pick from for all things Christmas, including all those Christmas parties that will be coming up very soon. The infamous Matthew Williamson even dropped into the event to say hello, take a couple of pictures and see everyone's opinions of the new collection. 

Just as we were about to dash back for the train to Liverpool, they kindly gave us a goody bag filled to the brim of amazing bits to get us in the Christmas spirit. They gifted us one of their own brand fresh linen candles (I was kind of hoping for a Christmasy scented candle), some festive Butler's chocolates, a NailsInc NailKale nail polish in Victoria (the perfect autumn/winter shade), as well as a £50 gift voucher to pick up something special in store. The lovely people at BlowLTD also kindly gifted us a pre-loaded VIP card to try out their app or take a visit to their counter.

Are you a Christmas from the 1st November type of person?

Speak to you next time!
