No matter what one says, Christmas is great and every loves it. It gradually grows on you… if you know what I mean. I just thought of buying presents, decorations, roast turkey and other things but that’s about it – never built up on that and now, it’s the second day of December and I am panicking. Just a few weeks to go and what have I done, what will be the Dinner, what will I do for the guests and above all what am I going to do for the presents, I haven’t bought anything as yet and there seems to be no time at all. Gosh am I late! No, I don’t think it’s very late, there is still time, if I organise things for myself I know I will be fine.
Actually its better I might get some better deals with the new VAT rates in UK and with more competitive pricing done by retailers.
Therefore my dear disorganised friends; you don’t have to worry much, the World Wide Web has given us the luxury of being lazy and still getting things done on time. There is online shopping which will sort us out this Christmas as well. There is a massive range of last minute gifts at one place so you don’t need to spend ages looking around for the perfect present.
If you’re planning to buy something for the kids there are loads and loads of stuff available, hope you don’t get confused with what to buy. Keep an eye on the Remote Controlled toys, they are nice and kids just love them. Please be aware that some of the grown ups might end up fighting for them.
The biggest concern that I have is what to do for the Christmas party, one thing is decided, we are not going out this time, one it’s too expensive and two our previous two years have been at places which we too crowded. This year it’s going to be home-sweet-home. Hmmm…., organising and making a Christmas Party successful is not an issue with me any more, there are so many things that can be done….
You can now buy a range of party games for every age group and taste. There are games which the kids would love and then there are those for the family. Grand dads and the toddlers can all have fun together. There are games for us grownups, games which bring some banter and loads of fun with them. Actually organising a party and making is successful should not be a concern for anyone at all.
Actually the dinner is also sorted… at least from the decoration side. There are placement mats, which one can go for, there are some good variety of clocks and decoration items and there are some very pleasingly priced mats and stuff which look very trendy and fashionable. Wine Thermometer, Invisible Shelf and others are some things which are worth considering.
How often has it happened that we give a Christmas Card to our dear ones and after sometime it disappears. All the effort that we took to think and write a nice message is wasted. This Christmas, there should be some consideration given to the Carve Your Own Wooden Card. I am going to put in a little bit of extra effort and going to convey a message that will last forever. This is one thing which I think is a must have in my Christmas List….I am going to get it no matter what and am going to tell someone very special what I really feel. I can’t say that it will be as good as a Rose, but I am sure it will carry a similar message. It doesn’t get much more romantic than that.
Next on the list, some stuff for the “Carbon footprint folks” I know. They will get the eco-friendly gifts this time. Solar powered gadgets can be one good thing for the guys or solar powered mobile phone chargers for the ladies especially when it is in pink. There can be some re-cycled stuff also for the Geeky lads that are there!
Can’t leave the grown-ups. Dads and lads of all ages go absolutely crazy for the Remote Controlled stuff that is around. Keep an eye on the Indiana Jones Giant Ant, this is something that is new this year and I can see him crawling like a baby running after it. Remote Controlled Helicopters are another thing which is going to bring out the child from within the Daddy.
Remember Christmas should not be a quite evening that we want to spend, the fun of Christmas Day is when there are kids shouting at the top of their voices with excitement as they open their presents, fights and screams that come for some party game going around somewhere in the house, a highly competitive game happening between the children and granny or the lads shouting loud like kids playing with a toy and trying to bring the roof down. That is what is Christmas all about and that is how it should be. So go online and do a few clicks and your Christmas will be a memorable one, you should not worry about time but should start thinking about pouring yourself a cup of Christmas cheer.
