T his month on the Cult Edit, we bring you our favourite December bits and bobs. Because we’re fully prepped for Christmas here at the Cohorted HQ, we wanted to suggest our ultimate essentials for Christmas and New Years, whether it’s food and drink, sequin outfits or our favourite Christmas films, we wont be forgetting about it throughout the festivities. Our team is here to show you our favourites, to get you ready for celebrations…
LOVISA REINDEER EARRINGS, £6
One of my favourite things to do in December is to have a gathering with my uni friends from home and have a little catch up with them as they are all home from uni for Christmas and New Year. This year they spotted my new favourite earrings which got me Christmas spirit, these cute reindeer earrings from Lovisa, and now they all want a pair!

CHRISTMAS FILM: LOVE ACTUALLY
There’s nothing better to get you in the Christmas mood than a Christmas film. We hear the songs on the radio, but they never get you as nostalgic as a film. The ultimate festive film has got to be Love Actually, spreading positivity, love and Christmas cheer. As soon as it’s acceptable to watch, it’s on my screen. You can’t beat a good Christmas classic with a nice Yorkshire tea.

The perfect figure-hugging glitter pants that will make your New Year’s Eve shine. As well as being very comfy, essential after the Christmas indulging, they’re not see through so you can dance the night away worry free.
- Rosa, Editorial Executive
CHRISTMAS FOOD: BUFFET FOOD
I’m sorry but who doesn’t LOVE a buffet?! The cheese board alone is always the star – crackers, cured meats, chutneys and grapes. YUM. My other buffet favourites are tempura prawns, grissini and the humble cold pizza.

ASDA YELLOW LABEL PROSECCO, £6
What better way to celebrate Christmas & New Years Day than with a glass of Prosecco. Get that same festive feeling for less, with Asda own brand of award-winning Yellow Label Prosecco for just £6. Mix with orange juice for the perfect buck fizz to start your Christmas morning or sip alongside any dish.

Every Christmas you’ll find me lounging in festive pyjamas. The year my favourites were a pair from ASOS, which are also great to wear all year round as they are not too christmassy. Pair with a cosy dressing gown and you’re good to go!
- Anna, Business Development
Christmas candles! What is more christmassy than the warming scents which remind you of the nostalgia of Christmas time, every year. Sparkling cinnamon and Gingerbread from Yankee Candles are my favourite scents for reminiscing Christmas during the month of December.

CHRISTMAS FILM: THE HOLIDAY
It’s not really Christmas without my favourite festive film. ‘The Holiday’ is the perfect combination of female empowerment and Jude Law dreaminess. Cosying up with this film, an overly fluffy blanket and a Baileys Hot Chocolate is my ideal Christmas night in!
- Rose, Business Development Manager
As much as I hate the snow, there is no denying it brings out the Christmas spirit like nothing else. Unfortunately no White Christmas this year but got to make my own snow thanks to John Lewis’ Christmas Magic Snow Tub!
