It’s Christmas! Or rather, the Christmas shop in BHS is open for business.
It’s not just me, I’m certain. Take a look at what they’re offering. As a child I recall the Christmas shop in BHS being a cornucopia of options for wasting hard earned goodwill with my parents as I explored every last shelf for that ideal daft gift for my long-suffering Dad or other unsuspecting family member.
These days it’s plastic wrapped boxed gift sets based on alcoholic and food brands; very little to draw the eye of my impatient six year old.
Could we have a little more cheery tat on the shelves please? Less polish and more cheer? Fewer slightly risqué joke gifts and more that are actually fun?
Or maybe I’m just getting old and grumpy. Do your shopping online and have it shipped by courier to arrive December 23rd. In which case, I’ve found the perfect gift.
Gone are the days of stocking filler type toys and fart machines, now it’s just port and chutney… from a clothes and homeware shop.
Oh well, at least there’s new traditions for the festive season to enjoy. Talking of which, need any help organising Ales, Beers and Carols this year?
Ah, yes, Ales Beers and Carols. See the link up top sir, and enjoy.
