You know it's getting close to Christmas when the London Olympia puts on their Spirit of Christmas fair.
If you're one of these people who liked to be super-organised for Christmas then this is the perfect place to start your shopping because it's full of beautiful and unusual gifts ideas that you won't find on the high street.
There will be around 825 boutiques in total, all hand-picked for the quality of their designs. They'll be selling everything from kid's gifts and the latest fashions to jewellery and homeware. They'll also have lots of luxury food and drink stands to give you some inspiration for your dinner table.
Basically... this is for people who want to make their Christmas that extra bit special, with some great gift ideas that will actually make people smile and be happy (instead of having to do those fake smiles when they unwrap another pair of thermal socks again).
