It’s at this point of December that I loose the will to do any more Christmas shopping…. except I still have quite a bit to go! The endless queues, the non-existent parking, the hordes of people, the tantruming children, the trolley rage can all combine to KILL the Christmas spirit within me.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas. My love language is gifts, which means I love giving gifts (especially if I find the perfect pressie at a great price) Buying my beloved’s pressies makes my heart sing Christmas carols of joy. BUT I do not love the chaos that Christmas brings to the shops. As festive as the shopping malls are with their twinkling fairy lights, jolly Santa’s and George Michael on repeat, I just can’t do it anymore. From this point onwards it’s online shopping all the way… well, if I can get my act together before they take their final orders!
So, to help you out with your last minute Christmas shopping, and to ease the pain of endlessly wandering the aisles I have a special last minute Christmas competition that you want to win!!
One lucky Becoming you reader will win a R1000 gift card from Red Square to put towards items of their choice in store.
This festive season Red Square and www.redsquare.co.za has you (and your gifts) covered with a complimentary gift wrapping service (both online and in-store) Choose from an amazing array of fragrances, skincare and make-up gift sets.
And if the endless choices are overwhelming you, I’ve rounded up some of my favourite beauty buys available on the shelves of Red Square stores, including the Red Square online shop for stressless shopping… just make sure you order before 12pm on Sunday 19 December to ensure Santa delivers those gifts on time!
