10 on the 10th ...for xmas...

Shimelle hosts 10 things on the 10th
each month, over on her blog.

This month I'm highlighting my
top 10 online stores
for sourcing christmas presents
for my family & friends.
As we are all busy people
on line shopping can be a godsend.

1. Amazon.
What can't you get from this amazing online store. It's choices of books would keep me happy for days plus all the music, films, comedy DVD's... & lets not forget the Kindle.

This site has an amazing array of CD's,music DVD's, films, sport equipment, blu-rays...all offered with free UK delivery.

3. EMP.
A great site if you have teenagers like me. Has t-shirts, hoodies & jewellery for girls & guys. From vampire to super mario you are sure to find something they will like. No minimum order postage £4.99.

4. Lakeland.
With baking & cooking as popular as ever, this is a great store for xmas gifts from decorations, books, hampers & gadgets you can't live with out. Delivery is free on orders over £50.

5. Computer Exchange.
This site is certainly worth a look if you are after reasonably prised DVD's, electrical & computer games. They have been pre owned but all come with a guarantee so you can get much more for your money.

This is the most amazing fudge in the world & once tried you will never eat any other sort! All my family are converted! It comes in 12 flavours & can be shipped all over the world. perfect for someone with a sweet tooth.

7. Not on the high street
Well worth a visit, can get loads of customised/personalised goods here plus items which are different from the usual xmas gifts. Some items have free delivery.

I love this store but particularly at Christmas with it's pretty gift wrap & funny stocking fillers plus cool diaries & note books. If there isn't one near you why not consider ordering on line. Whats not to love about stationary. They offer free delivery over £30.

9.John lewis
For a little luxury shopping I always take a look here & they offer free delivery over £30.

10. Boots
With lots of offers on their site & free delivery over £45 which is so easy to reach with the choice of items they sell, they just had to feature in my list.

I hope you have found these links useful.


  1. Oh dear, I've only just discovered my love for fudge - did I really need another excuse to buy more? :p I love not on the high street too. Great ideas for 10 on the 10th xx

  2. Good links - some of my favourites there too plus some interesting ones to explore (NOTHS, CEX and EMP). Off to look, TFS!

  3. Great list, I love Paperchase! I'll be checking out some new links after work tonight. Fudge one first! thanks

  4. I love Paperchase also. The one in our area is now closed so nice to know they are online. Great list! But I'm not ready to start thinking about Xmas shopping, but I better start.

  5. Love your 10 places to shop online. I love shopping online at Christmastime to avoid the crowds and long lines at the checkout. Will have to take a look at these places.

  6. What a fab idea for a post! I LOVE Paperchase!

  7. Very useful list, thanks so much for sharing. Notonthehighstreet is amazing, you can seriously get lost there for hours and hours! I didn't know Paperchase were on-line, will keep note of that in case ours closes down: I would go into complete withdrawal otherwise!

  8. Great list, I didn't know you could buy online from Paperchase, trouble is I'd just want to buy stuff for me from there! x

  9. A great Ten, you have most likely enabled some shopping today :)
