I’m a big Christmas person.. I just LOVE Christmas!! But my favourite part is going shopping for gifts for my loved ones. There’s just something about spoiling the people you love the most isn’t there?
This year is very different, actually going shopping in the shops is a no go.. for the moment at least. In the UK we are now in a second national lockdown, which means all none essential shops are now closed.. those being the shops we need to be able to buy presents. So online it is..
Usually I split my shopping between online and the high street near enough 50/50.. this year it’s looking more like 90/10.. but that all depends on the lockdown being lifted in time do some last minute shopping. I did start my shopping a little earlier this year, just because I kind of had a feeling this was going to happen. So before everyone was forced to do their shopping online, I did manage to get a few bits before things started to sell out pretty quickly.
I’m quite surprised just how well I’ve managed to do and how many gifts I’ve managed to buy this past week or so, just from online stores. So I thought I would share some of the places I have or am going to order from, incase you are in the same boat when it comes to buying gifts this year;
- Calendar club
- Superdrug/ Boots
- The psychic tree
- New look
- Urban outfitters
- Beauty bay
- Dunelm/ The range
- River island
- Order from local businesses – this could be friends or family or someone on social media who run their own small business.
