My Christmas tree travel ornaments is a series of short blog posts about my special Christmas tree ornaments.
My Christmas Tree Travel Ornaments: England
I love Christmas season and one of my favourite activities is decorating our Christmas tree. Over the years I bought several rather special Christmas ornaments on my travels. I don’t often travel in winter nor do I often come across a Christmas shop so I don’t have that many Christmas baubles from around Europe. Last year I shared with you my Christmas ornaments from Austria, Oslo and San Marino.
Actually, the first Christmas ornaments that I bought abroad are two delicate, Christmas baubles from Bury St Edmunds. One is an angel and the other is a reindeer. I bought them as a gift for my mum when I was living in England.
When we visited Edinburgh in 2012 I came across a Christmas shop but it was closed. Otherwise, I’d have definitely bought something there because the display in the shop window looked rather beautiful.
I have visited London so many times but I haven’t bought a single London Christmas ornament. However, a couple of years ago I participated in a giveaway by A Lady in London blog and won two wonderful Christmas ornaments: Big Ben and a red double decker bus which you can see in the photos.
A year after my lucky win I ordered a surprise British box (Christmas edition) from Quaintly & Co and got a beautiful Christmas ornament: a letter pillarbox. So, now I have three English Christmas ornaments. But next time I’m in London I’m definitely buying another beautiful Christmas ornament 🙂
