Thinking about Christmas then Argos is great for convenience – you can look through the catalogue (or give the book to the kids) and buy in store, or online. Things are organised by age and toy type in the catalogue or searchable through the use of technology – Christmas shopping couldn’t be made easier. There’s such a vast range for all ages, abilities and interests. Including all the big names and kids’ favourites – as well as some great value toys and bargains. Argos have plenty of branded merchandise – such as a vast arrange of products for big named films Frozen and Minions (dressing up, dressing gowns, slippers, umbrellas, bags) as well as all manner of gifts for everyone.
Christmas appears to get earlier and earlier doesn’t it – and I know some people have their shopping all done and dusted. For me I actually start on Boxing Day to get a few bits from the sales. But the main shopping for me is for my children and that is far too early to establish what they will be into and how much they will have grown up. No for me the perfect time is during Argos’ 3 for 2 on Toys. It is also a great time for buying any birthday presents for parties – as well as stocking fillers (under £10 and/or two toys for a tenner) and main presents. This year Argos 3 for 2 on Toys starts Thursday 25th September 2015.
