Last year I did a Christmas Haul series. This year I’ve started preparing for Christmas already at one of my favourite local shops Finishing Touches.

I saw a post on their Facebook page saying Christmas stock had started arriving and I knew I needed to take a look. If you followed my blog last year you’ll know all my Christmas Decorations are Reindeers. Basically I’m obsessed with them. So when I saw these lovely fellas, I knew I had to buy them.
They’re so cute, just look at their little faces!
The shop has stock arriving most days so I’m sure I’ll be back for more! Have you started prepping for Christmas yet?
Want to read my Christmas Haul Series from 2016? The links are below:
This is the last in my Christmas Haul series. Why not read Parts 1, 2 and 3 to catch up?
This haul is all from Finishing Touches is a lovely gift shop right here in Lee on Solent. It has two branches, both are gift shops but as the season approaches one becomes a Christmas shop and it is literally crammed full of the loveliest Christmas decorations.

In the next two pictures is everything I bought:
And now for the close ups!
Firstly the Reindeer Tea Light Holder
He is so cute with his little fur hat and his little black lantern. I couldn’t resist.
Next it’s the round Reindeer decorations.
This is actually really similar to some Reindeers we got from Debenhams years ago so I got two of these to compliment the ones we already have.
Then we have the two wooden tree decorations
I got two of these too. They’re going to look adorable on my Christmas tree, just look at their happy little faces!
Then finally the four wooden reindeers. I got two large and two small.
These are gorgeous solid wood pieces and although I got them from the Christmas shop I think these will be going in to our bedroom all year round afterwards to go with our Woodland theme. I think I can get away with them as they’re not overtly Christmassy!
So that brings my Christmas Haul to an end. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them. I’m well and truly ready for Christmas now!
I’ve really enjoyed writing these posts so I really hope you’ve enjoyed reading them. If you missed Parts 1 and 2 they can be found here and here
By now I’m pretty sure you’ve all seen the John Lewis Christmas advert set in Buster’s Garden. If you haven’t here it is:
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know I have foxes in my garden. If you didn’t know be sure to take a look at my Fantastic Mr. Fox post.
Read it? Ok so I’m sure that post has pretty much explained why I had to pick up these two beauties from the Buster’s Garden collection.
Meet Olivia and Otto! How cute are they?! I know they aren’t super Christmassy but after Christmas is done I plan on relocating them to the bedroom to add to our Woodland theme in there. They’re so lovely and super soft.
These were £12 each but 10% of each goes to The Wildlife Trusts which is such a good charity. I’m glad they’re helping a charity with their advert.
Tomorrow will be the last of my Christmas Haul Posts but if you’ve missed Parts 1 and 2 they’re available for you here and here. I hope they help to get you in the Christmas spirit.
I hope you liked yesterday’s post with my stunning Cath Kidston Snow Globes. Today I’m showing you the items I bought from Garsons Garden Centre. The Garsons I visited was the Titchfield store near Fareham.
Here’s a little something you might not know about me. I love Reindeers and approximately 95% of my Christmas decorations are Reindeers. There’s a couple of other things that I’ve allowed to sneak in. So naturally everything I bought at Garsons has something to do with Reindeers.
Here’s everything together.
Now for the close ups! The first thing I picked up is this gorgeous wooden Reindeer Tea Light Lantern.
This comes with a glass holder for the tea light to sit in. I bought two to go either side of my fire place. They’ll be lovely lit, giving a warm glow whilst watching Christmas movies! So cosy!
Last year we had a large Christmas tree and definitely didn’t have enough decorations so when I saw these cute felt Reindeers I knew they were what we needed to extend our decoration collection!
These were in two colours, red and white, so I bought two red and two white. They were only £1.49 which is a bargain!
Last but not least I got two of these happy little faces.
I couldn’t resist! I like the way this looks home made but looks a lot better than anything I could ever make!
Don’t forget to pop back tomorrow to see what else I’ve been buying! Can’t wait until tomorrow? Why not take a look at yesterday’s post?
