I hate to break the news, but Christmas is well and truly on the way!
So, if you are anything like me, and are completely unprepared, somewhat daunted and caught off-guard (well, life is busy), worry not, for the Ideal Home Show at Christmas is, thankfully, here to save us all.
Taking place at London's Earl's Court from 13-17th November, the Ideal Home Show at Christmas will be a winter wonderland of stress-free Christmas planning and preparation, sure to ease anxieties and keep the dreaded festive frenzy at bay.
With over 650 exhibitors and seven show sections including: Interiors & Home Accessories, Food & Drink, Home Improvements & Outdoor Living, Fashion & Beauty, Technology & Gadgets, Gifts and Christmas Decorations - the show will be jam-packed with ideas and gifts, offering the chance to get Christmas sorted once and for all.
On the Wednesday, Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen will be on hand to offer fabulous home-styling tips to help us get our abodes suitably in the mood, and there will be a range of exhibitors show-casing their products, as well as the latest design trends, to help inspire our hopes for some new year's home improvements.
There will be gadgets and gizmos galore, and tons of information on the hottest present buys. Not to mention the opportunity to learn how to create the perfect Christmas meals and deliver beautifully wrapped gifts!
An ice-rink and live carol singing will add a touch of festive magic to any visit to the show, making this the most time-and-cost-effective way to plan for a wonderful Christmas: guaranteed to be without any of the stress that battling through the high street entails.
Tickets are £12 - £14 in advance, or £16.50 - £18.50 on the door, depending on the day you visit - the Saturday being most expensive.
