Last Minute Christmas Gifts & Deliveries

Thursday, December 13th, 2012 by morethan

The shepherds may be tending their flocks but this year shoppers are not flocking to spend their cash.  High streets are quieter this year again and although a big part of that is our love of the convenience of online shopping our team thinks that overall people have returned to a more considered approach to Christmas.  Rather than splash out on lots of short term “fun” gifts that rarely last out the festive season we think that people are thinking more deeply about that their loved ones might really need and buying gifts with consideration and for longevity.

So with a remarkable year for the UK almost behind us including the Queen’s Jubilee (we are remembering the Queen’s visit to our local park, that torch relay followed by the Olympics and Paralympics) and all the fantastic cultural events that brightened up our year) it has to be the people who made it all happen that stick in our minds.  The Olympic volunteer’s choir was on the news this week and just the sight of their purple uniforms took us back to those heady summer days when some of us were lucky enough to get to the Olympics and bask in the admiration of other nations.  We sang to the volunteers’ lead as we waited for the trains, having stayed in the Olympic Park until the last possible minute.  The spirit of 2012 is not Jess Ennis, fabulous as she is, but those volunteers who smiled their way through the shifts and the baking heat of the day (yes really!) and hundreds of rounds of leading “if you are happy and you know it clap your hands” and really showed the best of British.
