After class this morning, I wrapped up warm and went for a little walk down Oxford Street, to see if I could find some gifts for my family. Since it wasn't too badly crowded, I walked down to Selfridges and had a lovely time wandering around each department, pretending I was rich and could afford to buy all kinds of lovely things ^^
I found these sweet little Swedish decorations. In Sweden they don't really have Father Christmas in the same way that we do. Instead they have Tomten, who has a similar role, but they also have lots of little Tomtenissar, which are kind of like his helpers. I think they're really cute, especially these ones, which make such sweet and simple decorations. (And their beards are so soft!)
It's always exciting to see the Christmas displays that Selfridges put in their front windows, however I wasn't a fan of their choices for this year. I did like this little Christmas doll that was hiding in the corner though, but she does have a hint of the horror movie about her...
Have you been doing any Christmas shopping? Do you love it or hate it? I actually really love buying gifts for other people, especially when I find something I just know they're going to love!
