We’ve been working super hard this year and we all deserve a treat. We asked some of our team members here at Aveni what they love most about Christmas and what they will be asking from Santa this year!


Archie Farquharson – Business Manager 

I love the chance to get the whole family together to catch up, reminisce and get into the Christmas spirit! I am hoping Santa will bring me plenty of good books (and chocolate) to enjoy in front of the fire!  


Katie Hunter – Marketing Consultant

I love so much about Christmas – drinking hot mulled wine outside in the cold, dressing up on the big day to sit in the living room, annual traditions with friends, the cheesiest films, the memories it brings back.  If Santa could arrange for me to have a few long-lies, I’d be delighted.   


Lexi Birch – Head of Aveni Labs 

I love seeing friends and hanging out with family. I love going for walks in wild weather and then coming home to warm up in front of the fire. I love seeing my kids open their presents. 


Amy Marcowich – Product Owner  

I love everything about the Christmas season; the lights & decorations, the songs, the food, the movies, the atmosphere. We have collected quite a few traditions over the years which I look forward to every single year. I haven’t started my list to Santa yet but it’s at the top of my to do list!


Chloe Poulter – Head of User Experience 

I love all the opportunities to be wrapped up warm and wander around outside with a hot chocolate at Christmas markets and illuminated walks! As for Santa, I hope he brings me some tips for a great first Vegan Christmas dinner!


James Gallagher – Marketing and Sales Executive 

As a Christian Christmas is a very important feast for us celebrating the birth of our Saviour. Therefore, getting to celebrate Holy Mass with family and the Church is always joyful – especially singing all those great carols! I shall be asking Santa for some new headphones so I can listen to all those Christmas hits this holiday season!
