‘Softer’ – Jenny Holzer at Blenheim Palace One of the all-time greats when it comes to provocation, the American artist Jenny Holzer has taken over this British landmark with her epic installations exploring the power of text. The show runs until 31 December and is not to be missed.

Charity shopping at Anya Hindmarch From 6.30pm on 7 December, join me for a glorious shopping evening at Anya’s flagship Bond Street store, with 15 per cent of sales going to Akshaya Patra’s UK Kitchen Project, which provides much-needed school meals across the capital.

Smart candy-floss machine Described by my children as “the best present ever”, this will guarantee smiles and sugar highs over the holiday season. Note: order the pink strawberry and vanilla sugar as well!

Alias Grace on Netflix A riveting series based on the Margaret Atwood novel, perfect for a good winter binge.

Lola’s rainbow cake This magnificent, towering rainbow cake with chocolate frosting comes with the surprise of a bucket of Smarties when you cut into it – and it tastes divine.

Deliciously Ella turmeric latte Now you can make it at home with Ella’s scrummy takeaway concoction of powdered coconut milk and turmeric – just add hot water. Available in-store at the Deliciously Ella delis.
