Christmas in London: Inside John Lewis Christmas Shop 2018
Living in London means that I have access to some of the absolute best Christmas Shops, every year lots of high-end department stores dedicate a portion of their stores entirely to Christmas and each year it gets better and better. Last year John Lewis impressed me with it’s Opposuits, and Personalised Gummies. So far this year Selfridges was the first Department Store shop I’ve visited, but wanted to make a special trip to John Lewis too.
I was really wowed with the updates to the John Lewis Christmas Shop this year. Unlike some stores that basically use the same set up – John Lewis changed its displays for the better for 2018. Last year, it’s ornaments were arranged by designer – this year the displays are grouped based on colours – and named after gemstones.
In fact, with the feature Bauble Wall being an even larger attraction, including a giant rotating rainbow tree – the theme of the year seems to be colour, colour, colours! It seems that they’ve taken inspiration from their Custom Quality Street booth – and decked out the entire department in rainbows.

But don’t worry, there’s still a cozy corner or two. One of the best updates this year from last is that they’ve arranged their faux trees for sale in a wonderful ‘Christmas Tree Forest’, complete with secret cabin. I absolutely love this idea, and am very glad that they took the space to present this properly – my daughter had a wonderful time roaming the short path, and there was a queue to get a photo by the fireplace!
There were so many wonderful displays, I happily spent over an hour taking photos, and here are a few more of my favourites (click on the thumbnails to see the full sized photos)
If you get the chance, you should absolutly drop by the John Lewis Christmas Shop 2018. You don’t even need to buy anything (we actually just went shopping for shoes afterwards) – it’s worth just to soak up the Holiday decor.
