21 Days of Christmas | Celebrate with… Tessa Packard

Day three of Walpole’s 21 Days of Christmas sees the launch of Tessa Packard’s fittingly festive Mr Polar Bear earrings, as well as wise words from the designer herself on how she will be celebrating the most wonderful time of the year.

What is your must-have festive gift?
A pair of our High Ball Earrings in your favourite colour / fruit combination. The perfect party accessory. Plus our new Mr Polar Bear Earrings, coming online today! (Pictured above, with Mr Penguin Earrings).

Winter beauty advice?
Use Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream!

Top festive dining destination?
If you can get the right table, Clos Maggiore is beautiful, but for overall impact no one does Christmas like 5 Hertford Street. Further afield, anywhere in the British countryside hits the spot.

How will your celebrate Christmas this year?
With a naff Christmas jumper and lots of red wine.

What gift are you hoping to receive in stocking?
Hair ties (I always lose them).

Favourite Christmas tradition?
Mince pies.

Favourite festive film?
Anything by Disney – I also love re-watching any episode of Game of Thrones.

Best place to enjoy the Christmas atmosphere?
At home in Scotland, especially if it snows.

Top tip for surviving the season?
Keep drinking water at all times!
