If Santa is ever looking for a new little helper, my daughter is the perfect candidate. She loves Christmas, and every year it surprises me how much our family traditions mean to her. You don't always realise when you are starting a new tradition. One minute it's something off the cuff that you decide to do, then it's a success so you do it again the following year and then it's all part of the Christmas routine.
The following year, whilst shopping in Tesco, I saw another Christmassy themed glass and, on a whim, bought it
Last year, I was shopping in Next and saw this pretty mug in the homeware department, I liked the way the Christmas graphics were shaped into a heart
You'll notice that each year we are going a little bit more up market, so this year whilst shopping in Cath Kidston I saw this ...
The strange thing is, that these glasses and mugs are in the same place in the same cupboard all year round, but she only brings them out to use at Christmas time! I kind of like this little traditional treat, but having gone up to bone china, Cath Kidston, I'm not sure where I'm going to end up shopping next year!
