Make It A December To Remember: Christmas Rituals with Wear & Where

With a refreshingly laid-back approach to style, online magazine Wear & Where is an endless source of everyday inspiration. We caught up with editor Natasha for her top tips on making the most of the festive season.

Setting the mood...

"I have candles burning all year ‘round and switch them up according to the season. As of December 1st, I light Diptyque’s Baies or Pomander, SevenSeventeen’s Sparkle or Neom’s Christmas Wish to make the house smell gorgeously festive.

Decking the Halls...

"Were it entirely up to me, my home would be a mass of greenery, white lights and white/gold/glass ornaments, but I have to take account of the tastes of others (including an 8 and 4-year-old) so we also have splashes of red via kitsch ornaments. We’re currently house-hunting and the wish list genuinely features ‘is it a two-tree house?’ (One for me, one for them!)

This year's Christmas Party must-haves...

"Any chance of Michael Buble crooning at the piano? Failing that, a fabulous statement skirt (probably sequinned) dressed down with a sweater. Oh, and mini mince pies!"

Favourite family tradition...

"I am a total Christmas fiend and love all the traditions - from choosing the tree and decorating to a festive soundtrack (which must feature ‘White Christmas’ and ‘All I Want for Christmas…’), to the excitement of writing and leaving letters to Father Christmas (the elves leave tiny notes and a trail of glitter on the fireplace by way of reply), and going into London to see the Christmas lights. Magical. (Possibly less so: my husband’s campaign for us all to go for a Christmas Eve open air swim…)"

Festive tipple of choice...

Mulled wine. And champagne. (Not at the same time.)

Christmas Day just isn't the same without...

Starting the day with the children piling into our bed to open their stockings, and ending it eating cheese around the fire.

On my wishlist…

Finding our dream house! (Or a stack of books, a candle, a cosy jumper, and a Gucci GG belt would do me nicely...)
