Avoid the Christmas Crush - shop with champagne and help charity too!

Christmas Shopping Season is here!

So, turn on the television and the Christmas adverts are creeping in and it seems that once November hits, the shops will be covered in Christmas lights. It is the season to be jolly and start buying presents. Maybe you are one of those admirable people who shop for Christmas all year and you have it sorted? Christmas shopping can be a pleasure or a pain. Trying to find a present for hard to please uncles or aunts or just trying to find something a little different can take up a lot of valuable time.

Plan and prepare your Christmas shopping

It is all too easy to get sucked in by Christmas fever and end up buying far too much, or the wrong gifts or forgetting someone on your list. It really does make sense to plan your shopping before you venture out onto the high street. Write down all the people you need to buy gifts for and be practical and sensible- set yourself a budget for each person. Next, do your research and use the Internet to get some ideas on what is out there and how much it is likely to cost. Don’t forget to write your ideas down next to the person’s name. It is also a good idea to plan to buy a few emergency gifts for those people who suddenly give you a present you weren’t expecting!

Stuck for inspiration – hate the high street crush?

If you are stuck for inspiration then come along to our Christmas shopping event and shop without the crush of the high street. Here at Ufford Park we have the answer to your Christmas shopping dilemma. If you are looking for that special gift for a female friend then make sure you keep this quiet! On the other hand, if you would like some fun and company while shopping in comfort, invite all the ladies you know to come along to our Ladies Shopping Evening. It is taking place on Thursday 26th November from 7.00pm to 9.30pm and is in aid of the charity, Marie Curie.

This is a great way to support charity and solve your Christmas present problem - tickets are only £6.00 per person, but you need to book and pay for them in advance.

You can shop in the beautiful surroundings of Ufford Park, snack on some delicious canapes and indulge in a free glass of bubbly as you choose your gifts. There will be a range of stalls selling, fashion handbags, purses and scarves, Christmas gifts, ladies clothes, jewellery and much, much, more.

If you feel like treating yourself then why not make a day of it, come and try out our spa or sample our delicious lunch?  Alternatively, why not book a room for the night. You can then shop, relax, pamper yourself and enjoy our award winning breakfast the next morning. Christmas shopping does not have to be a rush or stressful when you do it in Ufford Park style.
