This section is pretty broad. For hostess, the dining table is the centre piece and well, why not give them what they need!

Family Friendly Competition

Christmas really isn’t the same without some good old fashioned games to enjoy throughout the Christmas period and beyond. In our family, we tend to play ample board games and such on Boxing Day – It’s all part of the festive spirit. When it comes to Christmas Day, more civilised games like Chess or even a puzzle may be played.

With that in mind, Classic games are a must for any hostess! Whether it be classic Cludeo, a Monopoly or even the game of life, family friendly and classic game sets make the perfect gift. If it’s the more classic and centre piece worthy set you’re after, hit up Farrar Tanner. They provide so many stunning games sets, that will not only provide endless hours of festive fun, but look stunning under the coffee table!

pssst – Here’s their Christmas Catalogue to have a look at, they have so many great gift ideas!
