These days it is relatively easy to get any gift or experience day sorted with a flick of the mouse tail, as it were. Gone are the days trouping up and down the high street forlornly looking for something vaguely interesting in the local department store – if your high street had one. I recall living four miles out of a bustling market town – it seemed a really long walk there when I hadn’t got enough cash for shopping and the bus fare home! I used to get all my presents for everyone, mother included, in a particularly well run local independent family owned department store. They were known in the area and at one time used to advertise on local tv too. They had a range of knick-knacks and small gift sets but very limited. Today I can choose from a massive range from the incredible online gift outlets – like this one.
