There are also really cute kids’ creations (who can resist a bunny-eared cardigan for babies) at Marks & Spencer, Next and The White Company.

Upgrade your beauty bag in this season’s colour-popping bright lip and nail shades at Flannels’ beauty hall, Mac and Boots or invest in 2023’s multitasking skin products at L’Occitane, Lush, Molton Brown and The Body Shop. Spring has arrived!
