Today I had the pleasure of visiting the Country Homes & Interiors Christmas shopping event, at Stonor Park, in Henley-on-Thames for an afternoon of perusing beautiful boutique stalls, packed full of the best gifts and knick-knacks to fill any country home.

And I thought I’d put together a little list of my favourite picks, (some of which you can find online, but some of which are exclusive to the event) to perhaps inspire you, or give you a reason to pop over to the show and pick up some perfect pressies.

Here’s what I found for you…

There were these wonderfully smelling candles, from Vintage Barn Interiors, perfect for any home at Christmas. My favourite was the log fire, which smelt so authentic. And as somebody who doesn’t have a real fire in my home, I’m hoping this will help me pretend.

I hope this has provided a little inspiration for you, this Christmas and if you are in the Henley area, and fancy a lovely day out with a spot of lunch or afternoon tea, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Country Homes and Interiors Christmas shopping event, which is running until 26th November.

Big thank you to the team, for having us, today and for allowing me to write this blog post for you guys. We will definitely be back to visit again next year.
