Do you prefer something on the stronger side? Try a craft beer advent calendar! And you can always save the empty bottles and use them for the table decorations.

Get More ideas at the Spirit of Christmas Fair

 If you still need inspiration, then we suggest you to head to the biggest Christmas market in London: the Spirit of Christmas Fair. Organised in association with House & Garden, the Spirit of Christmas 2016 will be probably the most inspiring display of gifts, decorations and artisan food you can find. It will be held at the Olympia London Exhibition Centre, from the 31st of October to the 6th of November. An unmissable opportunity to get ready for the festive season in style.
