Did you know TEN MILLION Brits have left it as late as Christmas DAY to finish their gift shopping?
Many of them desperately spending online, in corner shops and petrol stations. 19% of adults in the UK confessed to last-minute panic buying on December 25th itself in a survey for Virgin Experience Days by Atomik Research. Nearly half (45%) said they had bought Christmas Day gifts online, 44% from a local shop and 11% had dashed to a nearby petrol station.
44% said they went Christmas shopping on the day itself because they were too lazy. A third (35%) said they had simply forgotten to buy a loved one a present and 36% because somebody unexpectedly had turned up for Christmas. Londoners are the most panicky, with over half (55%) saying they had bought presents on the 25th, followed by gift buyers in the north-east (39%) and Northern Ireland (15%).
Are you one of the 10M brits leaving gifts until the last minute? Well fear not, we have the perfect gift idea for your loved ones.Luckily, there are subscription gifts if you're short on ideas and out of time. If you're hunting for a last-minute gift idea for someone who seems to have everything, we've got you covered with something that they'll love for this month and beyond.
The best subscription boxes are curated for the recipient, or let them choose their box of goodies to their particular tastes. When gifted, these boxes usually arrive in the form of a gift box which is automatically shipped. Best of all, once ordered, most subscription boxes arrive on a monthly or quarterly basis, too, so it’s really multiple gifts in one!
The Mon Dessert subscription kit gives the recipient a surprise of a new dessert to have a go and create in each box. Inside each kit has an array of ingredients and specialist tools of the trade to help make breathtaking desserts.
It’s perfect as a last minute gift as it doesn't depend on Christmas shipping dates (which are cut off early this year). It also comes with a certificate so that you can present it to someone special on the day and they can activate it at a time that suits them. In particular, Mon Dessert is great to beat away the January blues as it really gets the creative juices flowing especially when it’s oh so cold outside! What better way to beat away the blues than bake and make beautiful desserts.
Whether they're seasoned dessert makers, but would love some variety, or new to the whole thing, our best selling subscription kit makes it easy to put together new desserts and try new recipes.
All of our desserts can also be modified easily to suit vegan, gluten free and non-dairy dietary requirements. Each of the prepaid subscription kits can be purchased on a 3 month, 6 month, 9 month or 12 month subscription.
