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!

Photographic Fun Organiser Calendar (AED 60)

Keep up with all the after-school activities and weekend plans with this fun family organiser that’ll help make planning (and remembering) soooo much easier (and it’ll look cute on your kitchen wall too).


For Me:
Lace Trim Pyjama Top (AED 125) and Bottoms (AED 150)

Lace trim pyjamas

Waking up on Christmas morning is always lovely, especially when you’re in fancy new PJ’s. Its nice to feel like a Sassy Mama, even at 5am!

For My Boys:
Long Sleeved Soldier Jumper (AED 110)

Who doesn’t love a festive jumper?! This cute British style is perfect for my little boy on Christmas Day.


For Me: 
Pink Tribeca 12 Piece Box-Set (AED 295)

Marks and Spencer dinner and tableware
I just love the colour of these dishes – perfect for perking up any dinner.

For My Little Girl: 
3-Pack Assorted Long-Sleeved Pyjamas (AED 157 special online price)

Marks and Spencer kids pyjamasLook adorable, comfy and perfect for my little girl who’s grown so tall!


For Me:
Bellagio 2-Pack Champagne Flutes (AED 150)

Beautiful champagne flutes gift

I’ll be snapping these up for me but can also think of a heap of girlfriends who’d love to receive these as gifts -and with whom I’ll be sharing a glass of bubbles over the Holidays I hope!

For My Little Girl:
Girls Cotton Party Dress (AED 250)

Marks and Spencer kids party dress

The cutest little light grey dress with gold detail – a little bit old fashioned and perfect for any special occasion (or in my daughter’s case for everyday play – she loves to get dressed up!).


For Me: 
Ribbed Trim 2 Pocket Cardigan in ‘denim’ (other colours available), (AED 145)

ribbed cardigan denim blue M&S
Perfect for chilly Dubai winter evenings or outdoor fun in Europe during the summer. Goes as well with denim as when mama brings out her fancy pants.

For My Home: 
Mythology Digital Hand Towels (AED 75 each)

Marks and Spencer Home
In a house full of kids and guests (we live where people vacation, remember…?) you can never have enough towels for the guest bathroom. The pretty print makes it as part decoration and  part towel – i.e win/win!

Happy Shopping!
