The Best Of The British High-Street In Dubai
From Christmas pressies to kids clothes, lingerie to food-hall goodies, Marks & Spencer is one of our favourite go-to stores for pretty much everything. UK mamas will know what we’re talking about – this British institution has been around for as long as we can remember (and that’s a long time in some of our cases..ahem..), is one of the British Royal Family’s stores of choice and is now trading here in Dubai, bringing the best of Blighty to the desert. With the cutest Christmas decorations and gift-wrap plus delicious fresh canapés, the most amazing mince-pies and chocolate treats we’ve been visiting good ol’ M&S quite regularly of late – and because we love you all, our dear loyal readers, we thought we’d share some of our top picks so that you can be inspired to rush off and finish that Christmas shopping. You’re welcome.
To begin with…EVERY family needs one of these!
