M&S have already been giving us all the festive feels by releasing their Christmas food and drink range, available to buy now

Alongside the return of their cult product, the Gin Snow Globe, the Marks and Spencer Christmas food and drink range focuses on all-out luxury.

It’s everything we hoped it would be - delicious, decedent flavours and gorgeous packaging that we’ll be able to keep forever.

There’s something for for everyone - whether you’re a chocoholic, a biscuit lover or a drink connoisseur.

They’ve also added a mouth-watering range of food to order to take the stress out of preparing your all important Christmas dinner - with everything from the turkey centrepiece to indulgent starters and a festive Colin the caterpillar cake, as well as vegetarian and vegan alternatives.

If you’re thinking that it’s too early to consider Christmas, be advised - Marks & Spencer recently announced there had been 500,000 searches for Christmas on the M&S website. They also note that they’ve sold nearly 1,000 frozen turkeys as shoppers start prepping for the festive season.

Fears of Brexit shortages and a tough second pandemic year means customers are seeking to stock up and get in the festive spirit early.

Here’s what they have in store so far, including prices and links to buy where available.

We’ll update this article with more information when it comes to light.

Delivery costs start at £3.50, or it’s free if you spend more than £50.

If this has got you in to the spirit of the season, take a look at our top picks of Christmas decorations 2021.

Labelled as ‘this season’s must-have Christmas gift’ by Marks and Spencer, this year the brand are offering not one snow globe gins as they did last year - but two.

This one is clementine flavour and comes paired with a bottle or prosecco.

The sparkling light-up bottle, with edible 23-carat gold leaf, is a stunning new light-up bottle design for 2021 inspired by The Nutcracker ballet.

This will pair perfectly with the limited-edition Christmas Conte Priuli Oro Prosecco, presented in a beautiful matching gift box.

Order now for delivery from November 2.

Clearly, if there’s one thing M&S have learned from last year, it’s that we really love food products that not only taste great, but look pretty and light up.

As such, light-up snow globe liqueurs aren’t the only glowing product on offer this festive season.

Marks and Spencer has also launched a light-up chocolate box which looks like an idyllic village, with mini snow-dusted milk, dark, white and golden blond chocolate houses.

The sweet treats could make a great present for loved ones or something special to buy for yourself and your family to enjoy on December 25.

Available online soon

These shortbread houses complete M&S’s light-up range this Christmas.

The tins come in three colours; gold silver and orange, and are filled with all-butter Scottish shortbread.

Once you’ve polished off the biscuits the tins could also be used as an ideal festive ornament.

At the fantastic price of just £5 each, you could treat yourself to all three tin colours, and they would also make a fantastic stocking filler or Secret Santa gift.

Marks and Spencer are treating us to more than one flavour choice this year when it comes to their super popular gin snow globes.

This is a brand-new light-up spiced sugar plum snow globe gin liqueur, designed especially for the festive 2021 season, with edible silver leaf.

It has been perfectly paired with the limited-edition Christmas Conte Priuli Oro Prosecco, also presented in a beautiful matching gift box.

Order now for delivery from November 2.

Two of the best things about the festive season are being able to eat as much chocolate you like and indulging in the traditional Christmas pudding.

So, M&S have come up with the ingenious idea of combining them both - ideal for the times when we still want to taste something sweet but have to admit we’re just too full for actual Christmas pudding.

These decadent truffles have all the flavours you’d find in a traditional Christmas pudding in a bitesize portion.

M&S described the chocolatey treats as fruity, warming and a little boozy.

On sale soon

The aptly named ‘Marksologist’ range from Marks and Spencer is a collection of six ready-to-drink cocktails, filled with lots of delicious festive flavours.

There’s a range of flavours to cater for everyone’s favourite tipple.

You can choose from pre-mixed margarita, espresso martini, passion star martini, clover club, golden negroni and aged rum and cacao old fashioned.

Currently only available in a case of all 6, for £108, they’ll soon be available for individual purchase

Love Caramilk? You’ll love the Golden Blond range from M&S, which captures the deliciously caramel, milky chocolate favour in a number of delicious guises. This Christmas they’ll have Golden Blond Pannetone, Florentines, and a Spread. Our choice though? A Golden Cream liqueur - a silky-smooth drink that’s a chocolate lovers’ heaven.

Available online soon

Labelled as Marks and Spencer’s tastiest-ever turkey joint, this ready to cook dish features a buttermilk stock brine for ultimate succulence.

With a pork, chestnut, cranberry and sloe gin stuffing, it’s topped with apple wood-smoked streaky bacon and garnished with a bouquet garni, goose-fat butter and a salt and pepper sprinkle.

Plus, there’s a roast-chicken stock sachet to supercharge your gravy.

Let someone else do the hard work this Christmas so you can enjoy more quality time with your family rather than preparing the turkey.

Serves 8 to 10 people.

Make sure your vegetarian and vegan guests are well catered for during Christmas lunch this year with this delicious wellington.

It is a wheat- and pea-based wellington is topped with a rich mushroom duxelle and wrapped in crisp puff pastry. Delicious and no fuss either as it comes ready to cook.

This serves 4 people.

Everyone’s favourite edible caterpillar, Colin, has had a makeover for the festive and now looks like an elf which is almost too good to eat . . . almost.

This Christmas you can indulge in an extremely chocolatey sponge roll with chocolate buttercream, covered in milk chocolate and finished with edible decorations.

The cake serves 10 people too, so it’s only £1 per portion.

What is Christmas for if not to be as decadent as possible, completely guilt-free?

It doesn’t get any more indulgent in the pudding stakes than this sticky toffee pudding crown.

It is gloriously rich, and comes ready to be finished with sumptuous salted caramel sauce and creamy Madagascan vanilla custard.

Suitable for vegetarians and ready to cook.

Serves 12 people.

A classic, but delicious starter which couldn’t be an more simple to serve because it comes ready to eat - all you have to do is dish it up.

This dish has responsibly sourced, cold-water prawns in a Marie Rose sauce infused with brandy, Worcester sauce and a touch of Tabasco.

This could also be served as part of a buffet.

Serves 8 to 10 people.

Another one of the best things about Christmas is being able to eat as much cheese as you like.

Get all the cheesy goodness with this vegetarian starter.

You don’t have to be vegetarian, however, to enjoy these stacks which are packed full of flavour.

Topped with mushrooms, leeks, kale and a creamy wine sauce, they make divine starters or could even form part of the main meal.

Serves two people.

Due to demand from customers, Marks and Spencer’s have launched a vegan version of their delicious melt in the middle chocolate pudding - sure to be well received by every person sat upon your Christmas table.

Plant-based but utterly indulgent, this gorgeously soft-textured chocolate pudding has a hidden centre of smooth Belgian chocolate sauce.
