What will feature in consumers’ homes this Christmas? Here’s a selection of wares from Lakeland, Wyevale, White Company and Hobbycraft.
Potential big sellers this year range from the traditional – candles, lanterns, trees and the like – to the ludicrous (sprout-themed table decorations).
Wyevale’s Christmas has a natural and traditional feel; one of its biggest ranges this year is based on the 12 days of Christmas. The garden centre chain also expects to sell more than 100,000 real Christmas trees, not to mention 250,000 poinsettia, in the run up to the big day.
Lakeland predicts that sprout themed items, among other things, will be popular this Christmas, and expects its best-sellers to be its exclusive cordless vacuum and items from its unglazed earthenwear cooking range.
Christmas is a significant time for arts and crafts retailer Hobbycraft. As its proposition is centred around personalisation, its decorations and gifts require decorating. This means that not only is the whole family kept busy in the days proceeding Christmas, but its shoppers can put their unique touches on everything from cards to ornaments.
And then, for something a little more exclusive, White Company has its classic selection of luxury gifts and white, black and silver decorations for around the home.
