Is September too early to begin buying Christmas presents?

Is September too early to begin buying Christmas presents?

Bargain hunters will tell you that the middle of September is the ideal time to begin shopping for Christmas presents. It’s about now that many suppliers clear their warehouses. It’s when they mark down products for a quick sale in order to create more space for new stock.

Children’s playhouses are a typical September ‘let’s get rid’ product because there’s fewer opportunities in the autumn for youngsters to be outdoors, so there’s not as many sales. That makes a playhouse the perfect gift for the canny Christmas present buyer.

The Shire Lad’s shed playhouse at £99 from elbec is an excellent example of a give-away, not to be missed bargain. For under £100 your children will receive a Christmas gift with a difference. Watch their faces light up when they realise there’s a summer ahead of creative play in a well constructed building that’s all their own. OK, so they won’t notice that the Lad’s shed is made from high quality, treated softwood with lots of safety features, but you’ll know. And, painted in a suitable shade with curtains at the window and the playhouse easily becomes a ‘Lasses shed’.

The Lad’s shed playhouse comes flat packed so it’s easy enough to store until it’s time for Father Christmas’s elves to collect ready for delivery on 25 December. And with the easy to follow instructions, assembling the playhouse could make a great holiday activity for all the family.

So, no, September isn’t too early to begin buying Christmas presents. But be quick because the Lad’s shed playhouse from elbec is such a good price that it won’t be on the warehouse racks for much longer.
