Autumn is in full swing and temperatures are quickly beginning to drop across the UK, prompting many of us to admit defeat and put our summer wardrobe away for another year.

Although winter is still over a couple of months away, it's never too early to get prepared and eager shoppers have already started making sure their winter wardrobes are well equipped for the cooler weather.

One item which has proven to be top of many people's must-have lists is Marks & Spencer's Recycled Velvet Cosy Socks, £8 here, which have been described as a "dream" and "super cosy", with the majority of shoppers giving the socks five stars in the reviews.

The faux-fur velvet cosy socks come in a pack of two and various colourways. Shoppers can pick from blue/pink, grey/black, black, black/red and pink/navy. M&S promises the socks will "keep your feet cosy after a long day" and they're designed with "comfy added stretch".

The slipper socks have extra fluffy cuffs with some even featuring sparkle detailing, and are made with recycled polyester.

Shoppers have praised the socks, with one writing: "Omg these are fabulous, really soft, can't wait for the colder weather to wear them," while a second said: "These are lovely fluffy soft socks, keeping toes cosy and warm."

A third wrote: "Super soft toastie warm socks. Fabulous for cold winter evenings. Great value".

M&S' latest clothing and homeware ranges are all perfect for the upcoming winter season, and the retailer is already in the festive spirit with some of their homeware offerings, especially candles. M&S have released a collection of Christmas-inspired fragrances with prices beginning at just £5.

Festive shoppers can choose from light-up candles, room sprays, diffusers, Potpourri and even perfumable tree decorations in their M&S collection that will fill your room with enticing aromas this holiday season.

The Christmas range has already proven to be a huge hit with shoppers, especially the Mandarin, Clove & Cinnamon Boxed Candle, which balances "sweet notes of cinnamon and clove with zesty mandarin" for a "distinctive aroma" is retailed for £5. It is presented in a glass container and comes in an illustrated box, making it the perfect gift or scent to fill your home.

The product is part of the Amber family of fragrances and burns up to 30 hours. One happy customer who purchased the candle said: "My house already smells like Christmas – friends will love one of these as a gift."

While a second said: "My favourite Christmas fragrance! I haven't lit the candle yet, but even so the smell is very noticeable. Good price for quality candle."
