H&M just released its holiday home decor, and you’ll want all these affordable festive pieces
OK, first of all, if you didn’t know H&M has a home line, let’s catch you up. H&M Home is full of affordable yet chic bedding, towels, kitchenware, decor, furniture and more. And you can shop it online or in select areas where H&M Home has its stores. Now, you should also know that the retailer recently released its holiday collection, and it will help make your home extra festive this season.
The H&M Home Holiday Shop has everything from ornaments and candle holders to throw pillows and table decorations. Vases start at just $4.99, and they’re a standout, actually — I mean, who wants to spend a lot on a vase anyway? Spend more on the gorgeous flowers and greenery you put inside. The ornaments are also pretty fun and feature things like a deck of cards, a glass of red wine and a set of macaron cookies.
Can you ever have enough Christmas trees? Put this large gold stainless steel one on your entryway table, coffee table or bookshelf — the possibilities are limitless. Noting that this is the large one, but you can build a set and get the smaller one for $12.99 as well.
Get two of the season’s best scents for less than $10. The set includes a mini Christmas Tree candle with notes of eucalyptus, juniper berries and cypress and a mini Winter Spices candle with notes of ginger, orange and clove buds. The set is a great gift or a nice scented accent in your own home.
SIR – Last Friday I received a flyer from Royal Mail (“Motorist swerves £1,000 speeding fine because Royal Mail failed to deliver it”, report, November 24), offering me a postal delivery service for NHS prescriptions. One wonders how well that would work, given that we now rarely get more than one or two deliveries a week. Royal Mail’s lack of self-awareness concerning its current level of service is mind-boggling. Chris Pilkington Weymouth, Dorset

A man has been arrested after three Palestinian students were shot in Vermont, in what their families are calling a hate crime.

Suspect Jason J Eaton, 48, was arrested after a police search of his home "gave investigators and prosecutors probable cause to believe that Mr Eaton perpetrated the shooting", NBC reported.
