Best Christmas bedding to count down the sleeps in style

The rise of Christmas bedding sets has gone through the roof this year, with everyone from John Lewis to Aldi getting in on the trend.

Say you have a set of Christmas bedding and you will no doubt be met with some curious looks, but why not?! We dress the other rooms of the home for the festive season so why not show some Christmas appreciation to our bedrooms.

We firmly believe Christmas bedding is not just for the kids. Although most designs do feature in a standard single size duvet, we wanted to highlight that there’s no shame in showing your love of Christmas with a more grown up festive-themed bedding set.
