The Little Things

Before you start thinking about putting your Christmas decorations up, try to get your home in order. Organise the main living spaces and bring down last year’s adornments from the attic. Look through them to decide which ones you’ll use, and what you’d like to buy.

Tip: When decorating your home for Christmas, don’t forget to pick up a scented candle. Gorgeous candles from The Gift Company will help your home smell delicious over the festive season. The Gift Company offers fragrances such as burnt orange and cinnamon.

Send it With Love

Each year we all receive a multitude of cards in the post, so make sure they don’t go to waste: Christmas cards can be an excellent, low-cost way to decorate the home. Attach them to ribbons and hang or dot them across the house.

Tip: We love the Christmas card range from icandy!

Light up

Lights are not just for the tree; they create a feeling of warmth and atmosphere anywhere in the home. Decorating both inside and out will transform your house into a winter wonderland that is sure to impress.

Tip: Choose a ‘warm’ coloured glow to avoid that frosty feeling inside on cold winter nights. The Works offer a range of Christmas lights perfect for every home.

Christmas Style

Christmas is your time to shine and your favourite retailers at The Galleria have a huge range of clothing and accessories at outlet prices. Whether it’s an outfit from GAP, Gant, M&S, French Connection, or Jaeger, you’re sure to find that perfect item to make your Christmas sparkle.

Tip: Whether it’s a small statement accessory or a head to toe shine, Christmas is the perfect time to go bold. French Connection offers dresses perfect for every Christmas party, and all at outlet prices.


After you’ve finished shopping for your Christmas essentials, why not treat the kids to a session at The Galleria’s enormous jungle-themed adventure play area, Get Wild!, with its eclectic assortment of slides, tunnels, rope walks and climbing frames right in the heart of the shopping centre, it’s the perfect place for children between the ages of 1-12 years to play and explore. Couple this with a trip to Odeon cinema to see the latest release to keep your little ones entertained throughout the school holidays.

Tip: Feet aching from all of the Christmas shopping? While the kids are enjoying Get Wild! why not enjoy a delicious cuppa and cake from Costa Coffee?

Come Dine

With a wide range of eateries, cafés and grab-and-go restaurants all under one roof, The Galleria is the perfect destination to eat and relax over Christmas. The centre’s larger restaurants such as Bella Italia, Frankie & Benny’s and Prezzo are perfect options for parties, offering delicious winter menus, while the smaller, more intimate eateries, such as Costa Coffee are great for a quick catch-up.

Tip: Book quickly to avoid disappointment. Reservations for large groups or work Christmas parties are in high demand and venues often require bookings to be made weeks in advance.

There’s plenty of extra fun events and promotions taking place throughout November and December to celebrate the festive season so be sure to check the centre’s website and Facebook and Twitter pages, @galleriahatfield, for details of the latest news and events.
