Christmas starts here - Choosing a Tree With Help from Pines and Needles

I am SOOO excited! Today is the day we are going to choose our Christmas tree (which always feels like it's officially the start of the festive season) from Pines and Needles in St Albans.

 We had a gorgeous tree from Pines and Needles last year and it was truly the nicest Christmas tree I have ever seen anywhere. I took my mum along to one of their many London pop-up stores and we made a day of it, Christmas shopping, a nice lunch and the highlight, picking out a beautiful tree.

This year I am taking the younger children to the St Albans store which this year is in Verulamium Park, opposite Westminster Lodge on Holywell Hill (AL1 2DL). They apparently have an even bigger selection of trees this year from giant firs to tiny spruces.

If you are bewildered by the options and want to know which tree smells nicest or drops least, the very lovely staff (including men in kilts!) will be on hand to guide you and arrange delivery if necessary (location limits apply). Last year my tree was delivered in perfect condition and the guys even put it into the stand for me.

Men in kilts you say? Yes, this is not just some cheap gimmick to attract people who like rugged me in skirts. It's a nod to the company's Scottish heritage.
