Sponsored Video : Magic & Sparkle at your M&S

As the song goes, it's the most wonderful time of the year.  It's time for spending time with loved ones, giving and receiving gifts and eating a substantial quantity of food with lots of bubbles to wash it down with.  And where can you find practically everything that you'll need for a Christmas with lots of Magic & Sparkle?  That's right, at your local M&S.  Founded in 1884 by Howard Marks and Thomas Spencer, the first store opened in Leeds as Marks' Penny Bazaar.  95 years later, the first non-UK branch of M&S opened on Mary Street in Dublin 1 in 1979 and you can now find branches in 54 countries across the world, including Lebanon, China and India.  It's a long way from Leeds.

Shopping from the comfort of your own home is a breeze with the Home Delivery or Collect in Store services.  I've already stocked up on Christmas gifts for my family (ssshhh, it's a surprise) and managed to treat myself at the same time : the White Scents home fragrance set for my living room, the metallic berry foliage wreath for my front door and my favourite Per Una slippers for toasty toes.

And as if buying your gifts online wasn't enough, you can order your complete Christmas dinner from M&S.  Simply make your selection, then choose a store and date to collect your order from.  You're just one click away from a stress-free festive feast.  It's not all turkey, you know.  M&S are always ahead of the pack when it comes to food and this year is no exception with new and exciting dishes to choose from.  My perfect Christmas dinner for us three would start with Potted Orkney Crab with homemade melba toast or Chargrilled Scallops on Pea Puree with a glass of Touraine.  We'd move onto Turkey Roulade stuffed with pork, mushroom & spinach and sugar baked gammon with turkey gravy, cranberry sauce & bread sauce,  Vegetables would include red cabbage, roast spuds and brussel sprouts with lots of stuffing.  As for dessert, I'm torn between the prettiest White Forest cheesecake and the Shimmered Mousse domes.  Ah, it's Christmas, let's just have both...

How do you fancy winning €2,000?  Just play the Magic & Sparkle Fairy Game for a chance to win and make this your best Christmas ever!
