With the Halloween celebrations over and the ghosts and ghouls sent back to the spirit world for another year, our thoughts turn to Winter and the exciting Christmas preparations ahead.

For most retailers November and December are the busiest months of the year and this is certainly true  for Maggy Kay Gifts.  As a small online business we really do rely on having a busy Christmas season and always start our preparations early.  The decorations are barely packed away when we head off to the Christmas trade shows in January & February. There is always so much to see and choose from at the shows it can be difficult to make the final selections. We do hope you love what we picked as much as we do.  Please do have a browse through our biggest ever Christmas Shop for some gift inspiration and ideas for decorating your home this Christmas.

Christmas Gonks popped up everywhere at the shows and as a regular Christmas best seller for us we have expanded our range to include some of your old favourites as well as a few fun and quirky new additions.  We especially love the little LED light up Santa Gonks and the Set of 2 Red Santa Gonks are beyond cute!

Our sets of glass Christmas tree decorations from Heaven Sends are always popular and sell out every year, so we have added to the range this year to include some beautiful glass icicles, glass angels and glass snowflakes. These look stunning on a Christmas tree and sparkle beautifully when placed beside fairy lights.  Love a fun decoration or something to make the kids smile?  Have a peek at our Set of 3 Large Light Up Christmas Reindeer Baubles or the super cute Set of 2 Large Santa Snowman LED Baubles. These all come individually boxed making them great little gifts for school friends or teachers.

Christmas Garlands and Wreaths always feature in our top sellers list and we are especially pleased with the range we have on offer this year.  With more than 30 garlands and wreaths to choose from you should find something to match your style and décor.  The Red Winter Berry Christmas Wreath is exclusive to Maggy Kay Gifts and exceptionally good value at just £19.95. If you enjoy creating your own unique decorations why not have a go at making your own garland this year.  Browse our undecorated garlands and wreaths and our range of Floristry Picks and have a go at creating your own.

Alison Gardiner Advent Calendars are also new to Maggy Kay Gifts this year.  I met Alison at one of the trade shows this year and was so impressed by her beautiful designs and her down-to earth nature I couldn’t resist stocking some of her ranges.  Her calendars offer a mix of traditional and fun and are all designed and made in the UK.

Fed up with using unsightly sticky tape and string to secure your decorations in place? Our range of Adams Christmas Decorating Accessories are essential for creating the perfect look with ease.  We’ve added to the range this year to include Adams Twin Pack Christmas Wind-Ups – perfect for storing away Christmas lights and garlands and Adams Deck Clips to help hang your outside lights perfectly.
