Hello Christmas!

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Hero's Blog features here.

I was in Marylebone High Street yesterday after having a check up with my eye surgeon, and I can now report from central London that Christmas has arrived. In mid November.

Fashion boutique Matches subverted poor old Rudolph (above), while The Conran shop went all out for the kiddy vote (below).

Did it make me put my hand in my pocket? Er, nope.

Out of principle, I don’t make a single purchase until Oh-My-God-I-Haven’t-Bought-The-Kids-Anything-And-It’s-Too-Late-For-Amazon Panic Day on the 23rd December.

Full marks for trying though.
