With less than four months until Christmas, the countdown is officially on. From beauty advent calendars to top-selling toy lists, many of our favourite brands are already getting us excited about the festive season.
The latest to unveil its festive treats is M&S, with the announcement that its hugely popular snow globe liqueurs are returning. A smash hit last year, the sparkly tipples will be in shops again from tomorrow and some are available online right now.
The Christmas range sees the return of the clementine light-up snow liqueur as well as two new additions; a spiced sugar plum that lights up in a cool white glow and a Madagascan vanilla-spiced rum liqueur, perfect for adding some sweetness to cocktails.
Containing 23-carat edible gold leaves, there’s no better way to light up your festival table this year than with the snow globe bottles. Last year, they flew off the shelves and M&S introduced a two-bottle limit to cope with the demand, with one customer even selling an empty gin bottle on eBay for £60.
We’re predicting much of the same this year, so make sure to head to your local store from tomorrow or pre-order a bottle online in a prosecco gift bundle. This year, M&S is also offering a case of six snow globes (£120, Marksandspencer.com) – three of the clementine and three of the spiced sugar plum – so you can stock up your festive drinks cabinet.
From pre-mixed cocktails to golden chocolate and light-up shortbread houses, the new Christmas range is packed with indulgent festive treats. Here, we’ve detailed what you need to know about the snow globe gin liqueurs as well as everything else M&S is offering up this year.
