I love Christmas. Every bit of it. From carol singers and candlelight services to elaborate decorations and sequinned party wear. The only difficulty with this is that it can put a lot of pressure on my bank account, because I want to buy everything. It’s almost more fun giving than receiving.

Because I take such pleasure in buying for friends and family, and for myself – I enjoy looking the part at this time of year – I have to be clever about what and where I buy. And if, like me, you’ve always got one eye on your next statement accessory, while searching out the correct shade of cashmere for your mother and the perfect plaid scarf for your Dad, then F&F exclusively at Tesco is going to make Christmas shopping a lot less stressful for those of you who might not enjoy it as much as I do.

Being able to buy your Christmas party pieces and family gifts in one store is brilliant. The build-up can be so hectic, especially if you’re travelling back to your family home for Christmas and want to have all your shopping done and dusted before you get on the train. This season,F&F exclusively at Tesco has specialised in stunning statement pieces that can be easily mixed and matched with those essential basics that the brand always has in stock. Even better, the prices are terrific, meaning you don’t have to sacrifice one item for another. You can have it all.

I’ve got my eye on this pink foil pleated skirt, which I’ll wear on Christmas Day with a cosy knit and knee-high boots. I love to add a touch of shimmer to my daywear over Christmas, as it makes the holiday feel a little more special.

Pleated skirt, €28

This leopard-print coat is my next pick. I always make sure I have a fabulous coat when heading out on New Year’s Eve because it’s inevitably going to be cold and I hate my outfit to look in any way unfinished. I know my niece would love this coat, but I’m afraid I’ll have to find something else for her as I like it too much to give away.

Faux fur leopard-print coat, €63

I’ll buy this pretty gold foil camisole for my sister. She likes to look understated, so this subtle hint of shimmer will add a little festive hit to her smart tailoring on Christmas Day.

Gold foil camisole, €18

Either my mother or one of my three sisters will love this glitter wrap dress. It’s such a flattering shape, and the silver tones feel seasonal but subtle at the same time. Nobody wants to look like a disco ball.

Glitter wrap dress, €25

 

F&F exclusively at Tesco’s beautiful collection of Christmas party outfits and festive day wear is exclusively available in selected Tesco extras and superstores. Click here to find your nearest store: https://www.f-f.com/ie/store-locator/
