It is something that is inescapable- it has been for some time already. Indeed the supermarkets have had shelves laden with treats for months already. But tomorrow it will be the 1st December and children across the country will be opening the first window on their advent calendars and the countdown will begin. As we get closer to the holiday that is defined by magic, sparkle and all things indulgent the pace gathers and the lists of things to do just seems to get longer.
There are the nativity plays and concerts, school discos and office parties, cakes and puddings, decorations and lights and of course the all important presents. Every year there are some people that have already completed their Christmas shopping before the end of October, its wrapped and labelled and hidden in the back of the wardrobe- how do they do it? Then there is the rest of us who are rushing around the shops on a Saturday afternoon with the other half of the population, desperately trying to find the perfect present for those loved ones that have everything already. When we’ve done three circuits of the department store’s Christmas section and still found nothing inspirational we return home, feeling incredibly "unfestive" and resort to the internet. With its endless online shops, special offers and ability to let you shop without dropping it can seem like the perfect answer- its just waiting for the postman or the delivery van that’s the problem, and of course returning it after Christmas when it wasn’t what they wanted at all.
There’s no doubt about it Christmas is a tough time, the pressure of Christmas shopping is huge, not to mention cooking for the inlaws!
The LC has had some great ideas to help you get it right this Christmas. Why not get them a gift that lasts longer than Christmas day. Why not inspire your teen to be more active with an iZone membership in our interactive gym for 11-15year olds or indulge someone special with an elegant Elemis gifts from the Spa@LC. We also have packaged up the LC’s best attractions so that you can give presents that are made for memories. There are vouchers for sessions on the exhilarating boardrider, interactive play area, 30ft climbing wall and of course the waterpark. We can package these sessions up for you to create the perfect Christmas gift no matter what they’re into.
Call in to the LC and speak to one of the team or call us from the comfort of your home to purchase any of these great gifts!
