The Ultimate Last Minute Gift Guide

Christmas day is fast approaching. With just days before the big event you’re undoubtedly in one of three categories. One; relaxed and prepared, two; not ready but not worried and three; total panic. Sound familiar? Not to fear! If you’re in category three take a few deep breathes, count to ten and pay attention to this important public service announcement. Admittedly you are cutting things a little bit fine – but there is still time to get some last minute gifts and save Christmas! First things first though, if you want your gifts to arrive in time you’re going to have to select the most express shipping option. Whether that be next day, collect in store or first class – please don’t leave it to second class or standard shipping because we can almost guarantee you will be left disappointed on the day! Second of all, go for a gift wrapped option if it’s available. This will save all important time and is worth a few extra pennies if it cuts out a little stress! If not there are still plenty of places selling perfectly good wrapping paper on the cheap. Check out your nearest supermarket, pound store and card shop.
