Planning a Christmas away from home

Christmas on holiday is an exciting thought!

Visiting the snow-dusted villages of Italy or the more temperate climates closer to the equator is fantastic during the festive season.
If you want to make your Christmas away even more relaxing then choosing gifts for those left at home is an essential part of the planning process. Here are our top tips for a Christmas away.

1. Remember those at home
Leaving the parents, grandparents and friends at home might be tough so it’s polite to leave them a small gift.

While you’re carving your way down the slopes or sunning yourself at the beach your relatives will be at home wrapping presents and cooking up a storm.

To make life easy for yourself order your presents to be sent direct to the recipient and remove the hassle of fighting through the Christmas shopping crowds when you just want to be packing!

2. Send a food hamper

If you’re leaving behind elderly parents or grandparents then it’s a great idea to send them a gourmet food basket that will arrive before Christmas day.

If you pack the basket with lots of luxury food products your elderly relative won’t have to venture out into the elements because they’ll have all the nibbles they need in front of them!

3. Relax!

Once you’ve ordered all of your gifts from the comfort of your own home you can sit back and read your travel guide or dig out the bikini you thought you wouldn’t need till next summer.

Ordering gifts online means that you can be reassured that they will arrive in time for Christmas and without any extra effort on your part.

You won’t have to do anything after you’ve placed your order so you are free to focus on other things.
