While the full M&S Christmas edit has yet to be revealed, we predict know that there’s a great range of decadent puddings, delicious Boxing Day snacky bits, and boozy treats like the festive gin snowglobe on the horizon. But what one thing we can already share and confirm is that a certain pig has become so famous that he now has his very own M&S Christmas Percy Pig range, which are sure to put a smile on your face, no matter your age.
Percy Pig advent calendar, £5, M&S
First up are the classics, from the Percy Pig Advent Calendar (which features chocolates as well as a full bag of Percys), and the mammoth Percy Pig Sweetie Jar, which will set you back £15 – and in our opinion, is worth every penny. The retro-style jar is embossed with Percy’s cute little face, and inside you’ll find more sweets than you’ve ever seen in one place on the shelves before.

Like the sweetie jar, there are other offerings that you’ll be able to keep forever, most notably the Merry Percymas tin filled with Percy biscuits, and the Percy Pig Bank, which will help you save up your pennies in style.

Then there’s a huge soft toy Percy, which also comes in a £25 ‘giant’ size and a somewhat shrunken down £15 ‘large’ version for smaller snuggles, both of which will no-doubt be the go-to gift for children at Christmas.
‘Percy is undoubtedly the nation’s favourite pig. Every year over 400 million individual Percy Pig sweets are sold – that’s 10 sweets every second!’ a release from the store explains. ‘He’s been in our lives since 1992 and this Christmas we’re brining Percy fans the ultimate Christmas present, launching life-size Percy toys for the very first time.’

All in all, everything in this line is flat-out excellent, and Percy fans certainly will NOT be disappointed. These products are available in stores now, but keep your eyes peeled, as there’s even more Percy goodness to come…
