I don't know if we already have a thread like this, but in my attempt to organise Christmas I was thinking we should have a pale where we can let others know if Christmas stock has come in.

I often end up missing it and then find it has been pillaged by the likes of you lot savvy shoppers before I've even thought about going.

So if you spot new christmas stock online or in-store, alert the thread.

And just to start things off:

Selfridges Christmas Shop Now Open (London only I think)

Not yet available online unfortunately.

Hobbycraft have Christmas paper craft/punches/dies/fabric in.

Harrods have their 2014 Christmas Bear and some decorations in.

Not on the hughstreet has lots of Christmas stock for sale.

Shameless place mark grin

I think this thread will not see much action until nearer the time but I basically started it as a giant place mark. I'll try and revive it at the first signs of Christmas so feel free to place mark until your hearts content.

Dobbies have their Christmas sale stuff in just now, I think its to make way for their 2014 Christmas stuff.

Loads of places have stuff online, you have to use the search box though or you won't see it.

House of fraiser
Debenhams
John Lewis (inside info says sometime in Sept they will start selling on shop floor)
Selfridges online

Get googling.

I know lots of places have little selections, I'm more talking about when they get their proper 2014 Christmas stock in.

I don't want to miss all the new stuff.

Apparently Clintons have their Christmas cards in.

I am officially annoyed. It's bloody August! Can't we wait 'til nearer the time?

MamaPain Sun 10-Aug-14 12:11:57

No <sticks out tongue>

I've checked and Clintons do have a large range of cards on site

www.clintoncards.co.uk/christmas

I haven't seen any (yet grin ) but I've bought some giftbags and giftboxes from QVC. (My giftbags were the Christmas in July Todays Special Value, so I got normal year round ones now and the Christmas ones will be sent in Nov)

Costco will get their Christmas stock in about September.

TKMaxx and Homesense will be about early October (I haven't seen any Hallowe'en stock yet, but they get that in early)

Oooh and I need to know when the coffee shops (yes Starbucks) start their festive range ( I sit in the cafe with one of the big cream topped coffee latte drinks....)

M&S Christmas Food to Order

Lakeland Limited Christmas Catalogue (on real paper, not online)

Christmas "Good Housekeeping" magazine

MegMogandOwlToo Sun 10-Aug-14 12:35:45

Card factory have all their Christmas cards out!

LokiBear Sun 10-Aug-14 15:09:49

Marking my place. Although I really need the shops to not stock their Christmas stuff until September! This is the earliest I have started planning and I am in danger of burning out or peaking too early!

BuilderMammy Sun 10-Aug-14 15:27:59

The Christmas BBC Good Food magazine should be out shortly after Halloween - that's my favourite : )

Apparently Starbucks red cups and seasonal drinks should be available from the 3rd of November.

I've ordered the studio Christmas catalogue. I've never bought anything from there before but it us the first Christmas 2014 catalogue yo be released and I wants it!

I've been disappointed with goods from Studio 24 - character towels and personalised kids apron were thin, wrapping paper kept tearing when I tried to wrap the presents - again flimsy rubbish, and many items were far smaller than I expected. For the quality/size, I thought the items were really expensive.
