Santa's elves are out in force

It’s hard to believe that it’s less than three weeks until Christmas. Excitement is high across the country with children pleading with their parents to pay that extra special visit to Santa to share their wish lists with him.

This is also a busy time for the Greatest Christmas Awards judges who are travelling the country far and wide visiting garden centres and grottos to see which team of Santa’s Elves have really excelled themselves this year.

If you are attending Harrogate Christmas & Gift be sure to book your tickets for the fabulous Awards evening which takes place at the Majestic Hotel on Sunday 10th January 2016, where the winners will be announced – call 01733 775700 for more information.

Don’t forget to register to attend the show – it’s free and not to be missed for anyone seeking exciting new product ranges to ensure their 2016 Christmas season is more successful than ever. Visit www.harrrogatefair.com

I believe in fairies

There’s good news for families in the UK looking to welcome a fairy into their home – The Irish Fairy Door Company has now landed on UK shores with its range of high quality, handmade wooden fairy doors.

Created by life-long friends Niamh Sherwin Barry and Aoife Lawler, along with their husbands Oisin and Gavin, The Irish Fairy Door Company helps fairies relocate into human homes, classrooms, gardens and woods with its range of beautiful Irish fairy doors, which can be installed just about anywhere. Once in place, the creative team at Fairy HQ ensures direct access to Fairy Valley, so the magic continues long after the fairy has moved in – with ongoing magical messages, play ideas and stories delivered to children and parents who register their fairy’s name on the website, via email and an app.

The exquisite fairy doors (RRP £20) are handmade in Ireland and are available in a variety of colours and styles. There are also stunning vinyl decals and add-ons, such as fairy doormats and washing lines with either male or female clothing, available to enhance the fairy home from just £3.99 RRP.
