Christmas Gift Guide by Month

Can you hear that sound? It’s the sound of all parents or gift givers trying to find somewhere to hide their Christmas gifts, so that any interested or nosy recipients won’t be able to find them.  Making room in the back of the wardrobe, moving cupboards just a fraction to hide something behind or, if you’re feeling particularly crafty, using the hidden floor space in your car (some cars really are that clever!)

Getting Christmas Wrapped up

This is all due in part because the super organised amongst us like to get Christmas wrapped up in good time, so they can relax with their feet up mid November, with a glass of sherry and start on those mince pies.  Or they like to spread the cost of Christmas, rather than have a financial hangover, as well as an alcoholic one in January.  Both good reasons, and why wouldn’t you? Fortunately over at C&B we’re incredibly lucky that our delicious food and drink goodies are not only extremely indulgently tasty, but also long lasting. So if you were planning to start your Christmas shopping early, then we can highly recommend a perusal of our range of goodies.

Buy Now, Pay in 4 with Clearpay.

Not forgetting, we’ve recently launched Clearpay, which allows you to spread the cost of your purchases over 4 easy bite-size chunks, interest free!
