Brought to you by Opera Lane.
It’s been a weird year.
With so much going on, there’s something almost soothing and reliable about the annual Christmas gift hunt.
Not only is a little shopping trip an excellent excuse to stretch your legs and escape the house, but it’s also a chance to soak up some festive vibes under the twinkly lights on Opera Lane with a takeaway Deluxe Hot Chocolate from Starbucks or lunch at the new Winter Garden at The Crawford Art Gallery Café.
In fact, we have a feeling we’ll be making a few trips in the coming weeks – just to make sure we knock that Santa list out of the park.
From fuzzy socks and glam PJs to comfy boots, cool trainers and cosy coats, if it’s ideas you’re after, we’ve got the Christmas season covered.
