Shop for your Christmas gifts in Lymington and the New Forest

Christmas shopping locally in Lymington and the New Forest 

Let's support our local shops this Christmas.

Christmas gifts from Lymington and the New Forest

Shopping locally is a good thing on so many counts - 10 of them here! 

And, at the time of year we spend more than normal it’s a great opportunity to  boost the income of our local shops as well.  In any case who wants to spend ages queuing at city centre carparks and wading through the frenzied crowds, only to find nothing of interest in the so-called 'offers'?  So often the "normal" prices in our local independent shops are the same or lower anyway.  

As for online, well for certain things yes but don't we all spend enough time on our screens? The good news is that often the "normal" prices in our local independent shops are the same or lower. We'll be doing as much of our Christmas shopping as we can locally, and hope you will too.
