That essential Christmas to-do list can make the festive season work like a dream.
And top of that list are gifts, the turkey, the tree - but spare a thought for the unsung heroes of Christmas present, the purchases that can make all the difference to that soaring festive spirit.
Danish furniture retailer JYSK has put together a quartet of Christmas HALF PRICE must-haves to lighten the load and add a touch of festive hygge to the proceedings.
You’ve heard of elf on a shelf? Well, this charming man in a red suit – that’s HRYM to you – standing at 80cm high can adorn any shelf, fireplace or even welcome you at the front door. Kids love him, adults love him, what’s not to love, especially the price - £20.
HRYM SANTA, £20
FULGURIT, LED TREE, £5
Christmas trees come in all shapes, sizes and colours, but the light tree FULGURIT, has that stylish Scandinavian minimalist look to it, and standing at 110cm high, is perfect to make a statement in the garden or patio. And at just £5, it’s a gift that keeps giving.

BRURI duvets from £30
And if the festivities run late into the night and you suddenly need to provide somewhere to sleep, a spare duvet always comes in handy. Allergy-friendly BRURI, with its unique down-like filling and 100% cotton cambric cover is fully washable and is so comfy it’s like sleeping in a Scandinavian snow drift, but warmer, obviously. Single, £30, Double £40, King, £50, pillow £12.50.
The international group's annual turnover is €3.58 billion. Growth is stable and controlled, and total staff numbers are around 23,000 working across 2,800 stores in 54 countries. In the UK it has delivered a strong sales performance as some other furniture retailers have found conditions less favourable. Global purchasing power with pricing benefits passed on to customers, a growing appetite for Scandi -style, quality products and high-levels of customer service have all contributed to JYSK’s UK advance.
JYSK has stores in Wakefield, Bradford, St Helen’s, Lincoln, Mansfield, York, Blackburn, Bolton, Swadlincote, Coventry, Pontefract, Grantham, Rotherham, Ellesmere Port, Chesterfield, Cannock, Dewsbury, Doncaster and Derby – and, from Spring 2020, Oldham.
