Tips For The Last Minute Christmas Shopper

Tips For The Last Minute Christmas Shopper

22nd Dec 2018

This time of year can be so manic that you end up working all the hours in a day to get all the tasks finished before Christmas, or burning the candle at both ends fitting in work around Christmas parties!

No matter how prepared you try to be for Christmas, present shopping can often get left until the last minute.

With this in mind, we spoke to some of the Gatwards team to get their top tips on last minute shopping and also to find out what’s on their wish list this year!


I definitely wouldn’t worry about having a specific gift in mind, as the team here are excellent at gauging what would be an ideal present for the recipient based on any information you can give to them. We just love to be detectives, searching for the ideal gift for you. And, even though its last minute, it can still be thoughtful! We can help with tips to make a present more personal, from helping with advice on birthstones, to matching up jewellery with anything else they already own.

On Liz’s wish list: The 18ct white gold and diamond ‘Leaf’ ring.

My tip would be to come in on Sunday for a more relaxed shopping experience. Sundays are generally quieter, so it’s a really nice, peaceful atmosphere to make your special purchase.

On Hannah’s wish list: A diamond line bracelet.

If you’re struggling for time, we can gift wrap all Gatwards purchases for you, so it’s just one less thing for you to worry about. All you have to do is write the gift tag!

On Kathy’s wish list: A single diamond pendant and matching diamond stud earrings.

Diamonds are a girls best friend and they literally go with anything! Everyone at Gatwards is an expert in this field and can help you find the perfect diamond gift.

A gift voucher is always an option for Christmas. You have a lovely boxed gift voucher for presenting on Christmas day and then they can then come into Gatwards and enjoy the shopping experience in the New Year.
