Walking in to Homesense at this time of year is literally like entering a Winter Wonderland – it’s AMAZING! You’ve all seen the Homesense hauls, interiors posts and gorgeous instagram photos – it’s safe to say we’re all pretty obsessed! Christmas is my other obsession, and here you can literally find everything you could possibly need for the festive season; gifts, decorations, wrapping, entertainment – all for affordable prices!

Plus, they have new deliveries every week so each visit is a new experience!
I got SO much Christmas shopping done; it’s such a relief when you know people have their gifts taken care of – especially when you’ve done the majority all in one afternoon! The only downside was getting all my presents and Christmas goodness on the train home! NO REGRETS though – have you seen that footstool?! DREAMY. I just love absolutely love it, and it was only £39.99 – how could I not?! Plus, my new blanket looks amazing draped over it… I spent so long in the cushion/blanket section! Oh and of course not forgetting the giant dog – a certain little tot is going to be VERY happy! If however you buy a larger item of furniture; Homesense actually provide a local delivery service!
So, on to the shopping…
After literally walking in the doorway, I got that excited Homesense feeling (you all KNOW what I mean!) and immediately saw all gifting opportunities. First though, I gathered together some beaaauuutiful Christmas decorations and stared at their wall of wreaths for a good five minutes. Then, the first gift I popped in to my trolley; a £7.99 Light Box! A fab start or what?!
There was a beauty gifting section, a ‘Dad’ section (how ideal is the 100 board games gift? FOR A TENNER! a Boxing Day winner!), a pet section, and just every section you could think of – everyone is covered!
What’s a visit to Homesense without spending half of your trip smelling all the amazing candles?! Candles just add that bit of cosiness for those cold Winter evenings and make everything that bit more festive – plus, candles make the PERFECT gift for literally anyone! I picked up a gorgeous three-wick candle for £12.99, with the RRP at £35.99 – it went STRAIGHT in my trolley!
The stationery area was probably my favourite – I got some INCREDIBLE gifts for my people there. Diaries, notebooks, pens, pencils, pretty post-its – I was in my element! I was so excited with some of the brands they had to offer; I’ve got some amazing stocking stuffers for such a discounted price! Here was also the area I got all my wrapping paper, ribbons and tags. If like me you absolutely love wrapping presents and decorating each gift differently, then you’ll know the price of everything can get a little high – not here though, I picked up PLENTY all for an affordable price!
Of course not forgetting the main man in my life, my little Rupert received some (early) presents too! I couldn’t resist putting him in his Festive pyjamas, or giving him his treats, or his new penguin…
As well as decorations, presents and everyday essentials, I also picked up some tableware – oh, and Christmas crackers!! – for any get togethers I have at my home. I absolutely adore the gold polka dot glasses – they were only £2.99 each and are just PERFECT – I couldn’t believe the price! I also picked up a set of six wine glasses for only £10, and the most amazing mug EVER for less than a fiver – hot chocolate anyone?!
Even though I’m nearly finished my Christmas shopping, I can’t resist returning one more time before the big day! I can’t miss out on the new weekly stock!
I hope you’re all now super excited to head down to your local Homesense for all of your Christmas needs! Find your nearest store here. It’s just such incredible value for money, and the the thrill of the find is like nothing else here! Wishing you all a wonderful Festive period and remember to enjoy yourself, be present, and make memories!
