Ready or not, the countdown to the holiday season has begun. If you weren’t aware, here at Store & More, we are so much more than your go-to storage solution destination. We are also here to banish your inner Grinch with our festive decor ideas to get you in the Christmas spirit.
‘From butchers and bakers to candlestick makers’, our goal is to simplify your life with (almost) everything you need to prepare for the Christmas season and make both Marie Kondo and Martha Stewart proud.
For the festive bakers
‘Sugar and spice and all things nice’ is certainly an apt description for the Christmas season. Speaking of spices – particularly cinnamon, cardamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves – our nifty spice rack and spice jar solutions are an all-year-round gorgeous organisational solution for on display or in your pantry.
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without iced biscuits, gingerbread cookies, mince pies and fruit cake (which, according to the experts, is best baked 2-3 months in advance). Here too, we oblige with all the baking trays, pans, piping bags and nozzles, rolling pins etc. you could wish for.
And don’t forget to browse our glass storage solutions which double up as the best cookie jars to keep friends and family happily snacking throughout the holidays.
For the festive tablescapers
There isn’t a better season of the year to show off your tablescaping prowess. Tablescaping –’ the act of creatively and intentionally arranging a tabletop to convey a specific theme, mood, or experience’ – comes into its own during the holiday season.
Step into our Aladdin’s cave of festive table decor inspiration and walk out with candles, lanterns, serviettes, glasses, and cutlery to wow your dinner guests. Start with a garland runner interspersed with votive candles or fairy lights in a glass jar.
A summertime Christmas season is perfect for South Africans who love to dine al fresco, which makes browsing our outdoor dining collection a necessity on your seasonal shopping journey.
For the festive decorators
From trimming the tree to wrapping gifts and filling stockings, the magic of the season starts at Store & More, where we believe that the decorating maxim – “less is more” – doesn’t apply at Christmas time.
According to psychotherapists, Christmas decorations can actually make you happier. ‘People often associate Christmas decorations with feelings of nostalgia and childhood excitement. Even if this feeling is mixed with sadness for a lost loved one, decorating may help connect to positive memories of that friend or family member.’
Logic would follow that shopping for Christmas decorations will also make you happy! So don’t limit your decor to-do list. Let the kids be part of the holiday tradition and go all out with LED Christmas trees, tinsel, garlands and fairy lights. And while you’re shopping, add a practical bauble storage box and a large 77-litre clear storage box to store your Christmas tree until next year.
