    On average, which shop (or website) do you tend to get most of your Xmas presents from?

    For me, I would say Easons, closely followed by Homestore & more.

    Amazon definitely. Especially for things not available here.

    Anything online will be from Amazon.

    -Debenhams/Arnotts/BT for cosmetics and beauty stuff (Depends on which one is doing offers, bonus time, free gifts etc)
    -Yankee for candles and candle sets
    -Easons for books
    -Boots for bits and bobs and stocking fillers

    I got a good bit in Debenhams last year.
    Easons for book gifts. Generally have 3 for 2 and a further 10% and free delivery.
    Then I often get gift from little gift shops.
    I actually picked up a few things in Tesco last year.

    Meadows and Byrne's , Next for children's clothes, Newbridge Silver factory shop- great for frames, decoration , Tk Maxx can have nice Christmas plates, mugs etc. I pick up bits when I'm on holidays in Dingle too. I love these wooden toys, he does non- Christmas stuff too

    Bought some bits from this lady again this year -I love sea glass!

    And the tiny bowls from here

    Nicholas Mosse does a customer evening with some discounts , worth your while going on the mailing list if you are in the area. I only buy Christmas seconds.

    - Boots
    - Amazon
    - for Yankee Candle gifts.

    - Argos
    - Tesco
    - Boots (again)

    Boots is definitely a lifesaver for me at Christmas.

    Amazon, Etsy and sometimes TK Maxx. I prefer buying my presents online and then being able to enjoy wandering the shops without the pressure.

    Amazon. Serious savings to be made. I always end up in Penneys for little bits too.

    I always say that I want to buy more unique gifts locally but I'm terrible at coming up with ideas.

    Online. Not a fan of shops, especially so around crazy season

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,584 ✭✭✭ screamer

    I generally give vouchers so an post one4all are my preferred option. I genuinely hate getting and giving lots of crap I much prefer the choice that vouchers give. Aside from that Smyths usually get Santa's business.

    Actual shops

    Boots (My local Boots has a sale/clearance section all year round, its great for picking up bits and pieces)
    TK Maxx

    Sometimes some local shops/pharmacies have bits and pieces too that I pick up but mostly I stick to the above places :)
