Okay so it’s mid-October but, in my opinion, this is the month when it starts to feel like winter again, with darker nights and colder mornings.
Most people are thinking about Halloween and Bonfire Night, but I’m already making my Christmas list!

Here is their guide to help you to choose something for each person.
