Christmas day for two ...

Start with Bellinis and a sharing platter, then languish over an easy-cook festive feast

Bellini

This cocktail was invented at Harry’s Bar in Venice in the 1930s. It is the perfect cocktail to start the festivities of Christmas morning with some smoked salmon on rye.

* 1 white peach or ready-made peach purée

* chilled champagne or sparkling wine

1 Place your champagne flutes in the freezer for 30 mins to chill. If making your own purée, blend the peach in a blender until smooth.

2 Add a little of the purée to the bottom of the champagne flute and top up with champagne.

Stick to a muted colour scheme for a calm yet grown-up look. Find these crackers and tableware at M&S

And what’s not to love? The whole team have been shopping up a seasonal storm to find you the most incredible bargains and savviest ideas out there to make this year the best Christmas you’ll ever have – and all without breaking that all-important budget. Worried about gifts? We’ve got it covered, simply turn to page 68 – there’s something for everyone. Concerned about cooking? Relax and turn to page 76 for an utterly indulgent, but seriously easy, Christmas dinner for two, all designed so you can throw it in the oven and watch your favourite Yuletide film while it gently cooks away. Need ideas to festoon the house? This issue is jam-packed with twinkling lights, rich ribbons and shimmering stars to solve every decorating dilemma, and if you don’t feel all warm and Christmassy yet, head to page 82 for our tried and tested ideas for Advent.
