Our favourite festive finds from Zara Home’s new online Christmas shop

Our favourite festive finds from Zara Home’s new online Christmas shop

We know it’s not yet Halloween but it will be in a few days and we feel we would be doing you a disservice to not tell you about the Zara Home Christmas shop.


Stacked with divine festive bits, the Zare Home Christmas sop will have items added to it every week so you can find just what you’re looking for coming up to the Christmas season.

We’re all coming to terms with the idea that this Christmas season will look a little different to previous years, whether that be because loved ones can’t travel home, belts are a little tighter than usual or someone is missing from the Christmas table altogether, thanks to this terrible pandemic.

Regardless, we all need something to look forward to and get excited about. So here’s a frivolous look at Christmas decorations to put you in a jolly mood.

 

Round the Table

Let’s start with the best bit of Christmas. No, not presents – food. Delicious dinners and home baking has been the crutch that many people have leaned on to get through the year and never is it more acceptable to eat homemade cookies for breakfast than at Christmas time.


Linen apron, €29.99


Silicone mould, €17.99

When it comes to dinner time, why not pull out all the stops. Frankly, every dinner during your time off should be treated with the same ceremony as that of December 25.

This beautiful floral table cloth will not only set the mood but it’ll keep the space looking festive long after the dishes have been cleared and desserts demolished.


Floral table cloth, €59.99


Christmas tumbler, €3.99


Christmas cocktail sticks, €3.99 for pack of 10


Bauble paper napkins, €3.99 for pack of 20

 

Cosy Up

Get comfortable on the sofa (if you’re not already well acquainted) with a festive cushion or throw. Add a Chrismas tree candle and you’ve got yourself ready-made evening.


Printed cushion cover, €17.99


Christmas tree candles, €17.99

 

Deck the Halls

Sending cards has been a dying Christmas tradition but here’s hoping this year will see its revival as many people plan to stay put this December time. There is nothing more lovely than receiving a hand-written card through the post, especially this year when our human contact has been so limited.


Christmas cards, €6.99 for pack of six

Why not go bigger and sparklier with decorations this year, oversized ornaments allow you to use fewer while still making a big impact.


Glass Christmas decoration, €11.99


Christmas leaves wreath, €39.99


Star decoration, €3.99

 

Sleep Well

We included this section mostly because of these adorable bodysuits. There’s a gorgeous collection of kid’s clothing (think: tartan rompers and matching pyjamas) on the Zara Home Christmas shop too, so have a peek before they sell out.


Terrycloth infant bodysuit, €22.99

Christmas sheets can seem a little over the top but considering how restrained this entire year has been, over-the-top is what we’re looking for.


Bunny sheets, from €9.99


Washed linen sheets, from €17.99
