Christmas comes early on Pinterest

Goodwill Pie

Christmas comes early every year on Pinterest. In fact, 25% more Brits are already Pinning Christmas ideas compared to this time last year. And it’s not just your regular Pinners who use their boards to help inspire them over the festive season… So let Pinterest help organise your Christmas with a little help for some of our Pinning VIPs, from River Cottage to Charlotte Tilbury. We’ve asked them to create exclusive ‘how to’ guides inspired by what they like to Pin.

On the foodie front, the team at River Cottage will have your larder stocked with homemade goodies in no time, the Hemsley Sister show you how to make mouthwatering mini mince pies, writer, stylist and cook Anna Jones has put together the top vegetarian recipes for Christmas, Donal Skehan has created a black forest trifle that is super simple to make and finally Nigella Lawson has shared an exclusive recipe from her new book, Simply Nigella, a Dark and Sumptuous Chocolate cake.

If you’re looking for festive ideas for activities, try out Elizabeth from Rosalilium’s 100 things to do this Christmas, or take a peek at Visit London’s Top 10 London Christmas moments for families. Get your home in tip top Christmas shape with Fearne Cotton’s fun and colourful decorating ideas, embraces the Winter spirit with some festive wreath making with Holly Wulff Petersen or pamper your pooch with these DIY dog mince pies from Dogs Trust.

Want festive style inspiration? Charlotte Tilbury's smokey eyes for the party season will see you through between now and New Year. While stylist Sarah Price walks you through styling a cape this season. Finally, the wonderful Niomi Smart has created this recipe for mini Christmas pudding energy balls, a perfectly delicious homemade gift.

Yes, Christmas really has come early on Pinterest.
