Still have lots of Christmas presents to buy? You are not alone – there is a reason the last Saturday in December is called ‘super Saturday’.

If early shoppers are sending you into a panic with talk of having completed their Christmas shopping, the big push for presents doesn’t often get underway until the midpoint in December.

The shops are stocked full of festive favourites while restaurants and cafes are overflowing with festive cheer – so now is the time to head out and enjoy buying for the ones you love.

If you’re still not entirely sure about what Christmas gifts to buy take some inspiration from this year’s Christmas shopping trends.

An interest in giving and receiving gifts that are ethical, kind to the planet and long-lasting is an obvious result of increased awareness of the challenges facing the environment. For eco-conscious friends and relatives look for vegan beauty products, gifts packaged in alternatives to plastic, clothing made from recycled or sustainable material and products that give to a charity.

Loose leaf tea from Whittard of Chelsea, and cotton or wool jumpers from shops such as Hobbs, Fat Face, JoJo Maman Bébé, or Crew Clothing will all tick the right box.

Trends that have lasted throughout the year will feature heavily in Christmas gifts – and not just for the kids either. Llama-themed clothing, jewellery and stationary is on-trend for kids and adults alike, while unicorn and slime-themed toys will be as happily received as a perennial favourite such as Lego. Don’t forget sloths either – they are certainly enjoying a moment.

Whether you are looking for llama bedding at Debenhams, a sloth onesie at Marks and Spencer or a lockable unicorn journal at Accessorize, Marriotts Walk has you covered. If you are looking for the perfect present for someone’s home, The Shop has a treasure trove of on-trend clothing, pictures and trinkets.

 If you are considering upgrading your Christmas decorations while out shopping – or fancy an entirely new look after hauling them down from the loft, the key trends for 2019 include:

White – We’re always of a white Christmas here in the UK, so why not create an indoors scene reminiscent of that? As well as being festive, white decorations will compliment Scandinavian themed rooms perfectly.

Natural living – Earthy colours, natural materials and a nature-themed decorations all tap into ethical and sustainable living. Minimise throwaway decorations and invest in pieces to keep while bringing an aura of calm with colours to reflect the natural world.

Patterns – Just as patterns and textures have made a return in interior design, this fashion crosses over to Christmas decorations. Festive furnishings, tree decoration and table dressings can all make the most of this trend.

Of course the most important part of Christmas shopping is to buy something that will be loved – whether that is a glamorous dress from Phase Eight or Monsoon, the latest fashion from New Look or walking boots from Trespass – Marriotts Walk will help you to find all that you need.

And, of course, the Calendar Club will be at the shopping centre with a huge range of themed stationary.
