Christmas is on the horizon and despite the difficult financial environment facing many consumers; millions will still head online and to the high street in search of fantastic bargains and the seasons must have items.

In the past few years online shopping has defied the economic slowdown by continuing to boom with the amount of money being spent at online retailers consistently rising. Such a rise has been attributed to massive online discounts, advancements in home broadband capabilities and improved online security through the use of secure payment methods such as Ukash.

If you are yet to start or still to complete purchasing gifts for loved ones don’t panic as below highlights a few of this season’s most sort after gifts that are sure to put a smile on even the Grinch’s face.


This seasons must have is the re-emergence of an old 90’s favourite. The Furby is back for Christmas 2012 and is flying off shelves around the world. Although many parents may find this irritating due to the fact it doesn’t have a volume control or an on/off bottom, children love it.

The toy that is famously known to have complete mind of its own can be purchased from around £54.99, however many retailers are expecting to be out of stock before the big day.

The console which was released in North America on the 18th of November and the 30th of November across Europe has been flying off shelves since its launch with many retailers displaying sold out signs. Starting price is £249.99/$299.99.

GHD Hair Straighteners
