It’s official, guys: Michael Bublé is currently defrosting somewhere in anticipation of giving us a holly jolly Christmas. Mariah Carey is (no doubt) warming up her vocals with a glass of something mulled ready to remind us that Christmas presents don’t matter in the grand scheme of things. But do you know what does matter? Christmas decorations.
Once your tree is up and you’ve fluffed the branches, the first fun activity of Christmas truly begins – dressing your tree with all your favourite decorations. And whether you’re a firm ‘stick to the theme’ tree decorator or more ad-hoc, there’s always a reason to (excuse the pun) spruce up your decoration collection. After compiling extensive Christmas research, we’ve uncovered nine incredible North East-based businesses, all of which are selling some beautifully festive bits and bobs – meaning you get to make your tree look sensational and support a local business or two at the same time.
Oh, and we’ve even thrown in a couple of wreath-making kits for good measure because, why not? Lockdown really is the perfect time to try a crafty activity.
