In July traditionally, journalists and bloggers are invited to attend Christmas presentations. Though it's a bit odd to visit Santa's grotto in strappy T-shirt and to listen to Xmas carols when it's 23C outside, we all happily attend.
This year, a few products caught my attention - There are not that many but they are just perfect as Xmas presents so here they are in no particular order
