Welcome to part two of Podengo’s Ultimate Christmas gift guide. Another week closer, the countdown has begun. Have you got your Christmas decs up yet? Whilst we’re ahead of the game on the socials, we’re not afraid to admit that we’re usually the last ones left still wrapping pressie’s on Christmas eve. If you can relate and want to change that this year, read on. Last week, we shared some fantastic pressie ideas from small businesses in part one of our Christmas gift Guide. Today we continue to spread the Christmas cheer with round two of our small biz selections.
But before we do, we thought we ought to set the record straight. There’s a rumour going around that Santa isn’t real, and as a result, children have begun to lose faith in the magic of Christmas. So we had our correspondence team reach out to Father Christmas himself, and he’s kindly cleared some space in his diary to offer personalised custom videos to all who need to reignite that spark of Christmas joy.
Now on to the celebrations; grab a glass of mulled wine if you please, and let us make your Christmas shopping a piece of cake with part two of Podengo’s ultimate Christmas gift guide.
