The Christmas shopping battleground
Picture the scene: you’re in the middle of a crowded department store in mid-December. The pre-Christmas sales have started and swarms of fractious people carrying an impossible number of bags are between you and the next gift on your list. You frenziedly rifle through the chaotic displays, tugging at your wool scarf while wondering whether the shop heating really needs to be turned up to the ‘Summer in Nairobi’ setting…
Ok, now picture this one: under a blanket of twinkling fairy lights, you stroll from shop to shop with a Starbucks red cup in hand. You’re in the heart of the forest, with scampering squirrels and the odd bold swan waddling around. All your favourite brands are here, from Elemis to Cath Kidston, Joules to Adidas. That Lego Star Wars set that was sold out everywhere is on the shelves in Just Kids. When you’ve shopped to your heart’s content, it’s a short walk back to your Lodge to drop off the bags before a celebratory family dinner.
Yes, Christmas shopping really can be this, well, Christmassy. If you’re joining us for Winter Wonderland, the shops on our Villages are the perfect place to avoid the crowds and pick up something special for everyone on your list – just see our gift guide below.
Win the whole lot
Even if you aren’t coming on a Winter Wonderland break (why not? You’re missing out), you can still make this Christmas extra special by winning everything in our gift guide!
The prize is worth £200 and has something that will put a smile on everyone’s face come Christmas morning. To be in with a chance of winning, we want to know what your Christmas wish is this year. Enter by commenting below or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
