Wrap up your Christmas shopping

Friday 10th December 2021

Love it or hate it, Christmas shopping is a must-do in December and, with just a few weeks to go until Santa arrives, Lakeside Village Outlet Shopping is here to help you blitz that list of gifts you need to buy.

With over 45 stores offering everything, from candles to clothing, shoes to sweets and books to beauty, you’ll have no problem finding the perfect presents for family and friends.

Plus, with our late-night opening hours throughout December, you’ll have plenty of time to pick up everything you need. Lakeside Village is keeping its doors open until 7pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Know a beauty lover? Shop make-up, nail polishes, lashes and more at the Beauty Outlet. Stocking the likes of Elizabeth Arden, Rimmel London and Revlon, you’re bound to discover a present to make them blush with delight!

Find scent-sational perfumes and aftershaves from big-name brands such as Marc Jacobs, Paco Rabanne and Gucci at The Fragrance Shop.

And, for those who love a pamper, head to the The Body Shop to treat them to a special-edition seasonal gift set. Choose from Kindness and Pears, Joy and Jasmine or Love and Plums scented goodies, which include luxurious body butters, shower gels and hand creams. There are also plenty of other fruity fragrances.

For more scents of the season, treat a special someone to an iconic Yankee Candle. Available at Clintons and Hallmark, you choose from a range of festive tea lights or filled glass jars. You can also grab that all-important wrapping paper, plus tags and bows to put the perfect finishing touches to presents.

For loved ones who enjoy nothing more than cosying up with a good book, visit M&S for the perfect pair of pyjamas before browsing best-sellers in The Works. The retailer also has a huge range of gift ideas for kids who love to get crafty, plus toys and games.

If you’re looking for scrumptious stocking fillers, or a treat to leave out for Father Christmas, grab a selection box from the Cadbury Outlet or retro candy from The Sweet Emporium.

Another reason to head to Lakeside this Christmas is our fun-filled festive schedule. From meeting Santa to being serenaded by Victorian Carol Singers, there’s plenty going off to get the whole family in the yuletide spirit.

Di Rodgers, centre manager at Lakeside Village, said: “Lakeside Village is the perfect place to get into the Christmas spirit. You can find your ideal Christmas gifts and treats, enjoy music and activities with friends and family and relax with classic Christmas refreshments in our cafes.
