Aw, we’re already feeling full of seasonal cheer, so we thought we’d ask some of our designer pals to share their festive faves.Â First up, Kati from Boys & Girls, purveyors of fabulous unisex childrenswear.
Describe your ideal Christmas Day. Being woken up in the middle of the night by excited kids with stockingsÂ – the one day of the year this is obligatory rather than banned. Back to sleep for a few hours. Bucks Fizz breakfast to accompany mass present opening. Christmas dinner â€“ preferably cooked by someone else. All this with extended family andÂ friends and the gaps between filled with games of Bananagrams and finding the odd piece towards the yearly 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle. Perfect.
What was your best ever present? Probably myÂ Sasha Dolls. Around 1976. I loved them.
Do you have any family traditions? See above schedule, but we also: decorate the tree accompanied by Frank Sinatra and a glass of Baileys; sprinkle a magic elf dust trail so Santa and his sleigh definitely donâ€™t miss the house; put out a brandy, mince pie and carrot for Santa and his crew (always appreciated); always light the Christmas pudding.
What’s your favourite thing about the festive season? The decorations. And the After Eight Mintsâ€¦
What are you hoping to find under the tree this year? A present that hasnâ€™t already been ripped open by the kidsâ€¦
