Christmas Shopping in Milton Keynes

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, There’ll be much mistletoeing, And hearts will be glowing, When love ones are near, It’s the most wonderful time of the year… 

And it’s the time of year where everyone loves to shop! But it becomes a difficult task when you don’t know where to do your Christmas Shopping in Milton Keynes. Here’s our guide to help you:

Pre-Christmas Shopping

This is the time when you are buying a few new decorations, thinking about little bits to make Christmas a bit more special and things in your home to make things a bit more Christmassy…

Our first choice for little bit’s and pieces has to be the garden centre’s around Milton Keynes – they are already full of little items, Christmas treats, like winter biscuits and mulled wine and are a great way to start getting into the spirit without being too overwhelmed by it. More recently we’ve also seen the rise of Homesense, which is a subsidiary of TK Maxx and this place has some awesome unique things that you wouldn’t usually get on the high-street.

Present Shopping

As December get’s closer and we start the Advent season, you’ll want to get a few things ticked off your Christmas shopping list, the Centre:MK and Intu shopping centres have pretty much everything you need – in fact, they have miles of shops! It’s the obvious choice, and with some late night shopping and Christmas attractions inside, it makes it even more appealing!

Food Shopping 

Christmas is a time to indulge – there are no two ways about it. Food shopping is all part of the fun, not forgetting the festive drinks too! We’d recommend using local suppliers where possible, again garden centres are great for this! Don’t forget to order your Turkey in advance!

When it comes to festive drinks, keep an eye on offers between now and Christmas to get the best deals. We’ll be sharing some of our favourite festive tipples in a blog in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for this too!

Christmas Tree

The debate here is whether or not you go for a real or a fake one… For us, it has to be real, but we see the benefits of an artificial one too. The place to go for us has to be Stoke Goldington Christmas Trees.

We hope this blog helps with all your questions about Christmas Shopping in Milton Keynes – have a fabulous holiday season!
