With 41 days till Christmas, it’s definitely time to get started on the shopping. Otherwise, before you know it, it’ll be Christmas Eve and you’ll wonder why you didn’t listen to us and got started earlier!
And yes, we can confidently say we’re pros. No one knows Christmas shopping like a woman with a big family (isn’t that right, Betty).
Besides, the run up to Christmas is just as fun as the day itself. Listening to music, wandering around Christmas markets - what better way to get into the festive spirit than getting started with your shopping?
So with no time to spare, let’s dive right into our list of tips for bossing your Christmas shop!
Organisation is key
You can’t get anywhere without a good plan - which is a great tip for life in general! But trust us, it’s in your best interest to plan early.
Who are you buying for?
What is your budget?
When are you going to buy each gift?
Gifting guides are a great place to start looking for inspiration. We’ve got ideas for mothers, teens, besties, you name it! If you’re on a certain budget, we have options for under £20 and under £30. Getting organised means getting ahead, and as we’ve already said, you can never start too early!

The internet is your friend, if you treat it like one
That might sound strange, but allow us to explain. Online shopping is a great way to do the Christmas shop - you’ve got everything you need at your fingertips! But you NEED to take into consideration the shipping dates.
Getting started earlier means you are more likely to avoid the delays of the festive period, and no one’s left without a gift on Christmas!
And on the chance that it turns up and it’s not right, or too small, this gives you time to change it. Always take note of the Shipping and Returns of the businesses you’re buying from.
The final touches
Wrapping paper is overrated. Add the final touch to your gift with our beautiful, elegant gift boxes. You can add a personalised message at checkout and we can write a gift card for you and gift wrap in gorgeous tissue paper and ribbon!
Christmas is a time for fun, family and friends, it shouldn’t be a time to stress about. Whilst we know there will always be a bit of stress with the festive season, we hope to help you minimise that!
