London-based high class independent escort, Saffron Smith, writes a series of Christmas-themed articles including one on inspired tips for Christmas dates in the capital but – first things first – have you got your favourite luxury companion a matching luxury advent calendar yet?
No? Well, breathe a sigh of relief; it’s the 13th of November so it’s not too late to do something about it but also get your skates on because it’s the 13th of November and these beauties will fly off the shelves before you know it.
Advent calendars make for wonderful presents for not only do they build excitement in the lead-up to Christmas but they also serve as fabulous countdowns to Christmas dates and have your companion thinking of you with fondness every time she opens a window. So my advice to you is don’t skimp on a lame “12 days of Christmas” one, ok, get a full 24-day calendar and let thoughts of you reign the entire month.
