That’s a wrap
Get ahead of the Christmas shopping game this year with a visit to festive emporium, Just Delights.
A treasure trove of festive fancy, this year Just Delights in Penryn is introducing soft luxurious pinks and champagnes to the warm Nordic blues and traditional reds of last year. It really does feel like you’ve walked into Santa’s workshop!
“you’ll feel cosy and right at home, with copious amounts of soft throws and a glittering array of candles in every shade and size”
The Scandinavian feeling of hygge needs no introduction, but it’s with the onset of winter and the approach of Christmas that it really comes into its own. Adopting this feeling of winter warmth, as you wander around the festive emporium that is Just Delights, you’ll feel cosy and right at home, with copious amounts of soft throws and a glittering array of candles in every shade and size. And, as you’d expect, you’ll also find giftwrap, cards, bows and ribbons in abundance, as well as gifts galore to help you fill those stockings and find a special something for that special someone. There’s even a giftwrap service available, from which donations go towards the team’s chosen charity, CLIC Sargent.
For the big day itself, you’ll of course need the right tree. If you’re still pulling pine needles out of the carpet from last year, maybe it’s time to consider an artificial one. Fortunately, Just Delights offers a fantastic choice of life-like artificial trees, along with a plethora of twinkling lights and decorations, beneath which it’s easy to envisage your family’s gifts piled on Christmas morning.
The Just Delights team really does have it all covered, knowing that the devil is in the details. This is why they also stock a wonderful display of table linen for you to choose from, perfect for dressing the table before sitting the entire clan down for what is, to many, the best meal of the year.
Open Monday to Saturday from 9.30am until 5.30pm, and then on Sundays from midday until 4pm, if you’re planning on dressing your home to impress this festive season, or are looking for a one-stop-shop to fill those stockings, look no further than Just Delights in Penryn!
