Last Minute Christmas Presents From B&M Stores

December 17, 2017


There’s nothing worse than being handed a beautifully wrapped and thoughtful gift from an unexpected Christmas guest is there? Because 9 times out of 10 who is actually prepared enough to have anything to give back at the last second. Ekk! I know it’s never expected in return. But I can never shift that awkward sinking feeling as we sit together sipping hot choccy. Whilst their perfect gift seems to yell ‘you forgot about THEM didn’t yoooouuu’. Double ekk. So this year I have bought some back up gifts that I’m stashing away for all those just in case moments. I was a bit worried about the cost, but it turns out that B&M stores is a great place to grab those last minute Christmas presents without breaking the bank. Thank you B&M stores!    


Shopping at B&M Stores

We are super lucky to have one of the huge B&M stores near us. I’d never been inside before, so was a bit like a kid in a candy store running around and tempted to sweep pretty much everything I saw into our shopping basket. The key is to have a plan. Which I did have, but totally forgot in the heat of the shopping moment because there is so much on offer at the moment.


B&M Stores


Once we had done a few laps eyeing up all the potential buys, as you do, we picked some fab last minute Christmas presents all for just under £20. #Win. We were really impressed by the variety of gifts available and there were plenty of unusual buys that wouldn’t have crossed my mind if we hadn’t have made this trip. Here’s what we got.

Getting Into The Christmas Spirit With B&M Stores

I’m now completely confident that if we do happen to get an unexpected guest over the Christmas period, I won’t have to send them away empty handed. Leaving us to sit back, relax, and enjoy the festivities!
