Finally, an announcement to get excited about, as M&S reveal their INCREDIBLE Christmas collection for 2020, which includes over 1000 newly developed products of outstanding quality, leading innovation and surprising value – and we think it is their most delicious selection yet!
Christmas celebrations may be looking a little different this year, but one thing is for certain, shoppers are looking forward to it more than ever as they look to bid farewell to a challenging year!
Virtual and more intimate ‘mini-mas’ celebrations are likely to become the norm, as friends and families celebrate with numerous events throughout the festive season and this year’s collection will help you do just that!
April Preston, Director of Product Development said: “This year, customers have been telling us they want to embrace the spirit of Christmas more than ever. We won’t want to confine Christmas to one day, we’ll be looking to extend the festive season and turn it into a series of moments, celebrating with loved ones in whatever way we can.
Christmas isn’t a time our customers want to hold back, and food will continue to play a central part in their celebrations. Some of the festivities may look a bit different, some might even be virtual, but they will be more special than ever as we treat, thank, celebrate and unite with friends and family.”

Here are just some of the highlights from this year’s collection…
What is new in the world of party food?
No celebration is complete without tucking into a bitesize chunk of M&S loveliness, and even if celebrations are a little different, we’ll still want to eat party food.
Look out for this year’s must haves the Battered Mini Sausages ‘chip shop style’, Chicken Doughnut Dippers (you read that right!) and Plant Kitchen Mini No Chicken Kiev’s. What’s great about this year’s collection, not only does each canape cook at the same temperature with little to no prep, they are also suitable for freezing – meaning those looking to get ahead with their prep this Christmas can.
Hot cheese? Yes please!
M&S are renowned across the UK for their gooey Christmas cheese creations and The Molten Mountain Cheesebake is no exception. A cheese-lover’s dream, this fondue pot of Gruyère, Comté and Emmental is topped with bacon lardons, roasted onion and Raclette cheese, and is ready to pop straight into the oven.
Now that’s the Perfect Turkey!
Christmas 2020 is all about JONSO (joy of not stressing out) and our new Collection Perfect Turkey Crown helps you do just that. Needing next to no attention for the perfect, succulent meat every time, M&S have done all the hard-work meaning you can simply pop in the oven for the specified time, and cook-up the most delicious, fuss-free meat ever.
Costing £50 and serving 6-8, this free range bird is great value coming pre-basted, pre-stuffed with a pork and cranberry stuffing, pre-wrapped with a flavoursome cured smoked bacon for ultimate succulence and we have even infused a nutty butter under the skin to keep meat super moist, and skin super crispy. For those with leftovers after the big day, M&S have tonnes of brilliant recipe inspiration online and in-store too!
Sweet dreams really are made of these…
This year’s dessert collection is more impressive than ever and perfect for every occasion, including rounding off the main event. M&s have really gone for gold this festive season with their showstopping golden balls profiterole stack and theatrical gold bullion bar.
Some of their other festive favourites include a velvety Salted Caramel Brownie Liqueur, out-of-this-world Chocolate Orange Christmas Pudding, a Triple Chocolate Panettone of dreams and everybody’s favourite – a Festive Colin the Caterpillar Cake giving a new take on the Christmas Yule Log!
