Ordering your shopping online is by far the easiest way to get your Christmas presents. Our Christmas gift guides – top Christmas gifts for dad, Christmas gifts for mum, even Christmas gifts for pets – have a wide selection of the kind of gifts you might want to buy for a loved one this year. But please ensure you leave enough time for the presents to be delivered – whether to you, or directly to the recipient, if the store offers a gift-wrapping service.
If you take a look at Royal Mail’s website you can see its table of Christmas posting deadlines. Please remember to order items well in advance, and check items will be in stock.
And remember that whenever you shop online through Give as you Live, the charity you love gets an extra little present – at no extra cost or effort to you.
