Making Time To Enjoy The Outdoors This Christmas…

Making Time To Enjoy The Outdoors This Christmas…

I’ve talked before about wanting to make the most of this time before school with Holly. With her school application all filled in, it feels a lot more real and once we are the other side of Christmas I just know the months and weeks are going to race by.

I adore having her home and one of the things that we love to do a couple of times a week is going for a walk in the woods. You can’t beat getting some fresh air at this time of year, the air some how feels fresher with a chill in the air.

One4all gift card recently got in touch and wanted to set me a challenge. Well I love a challenge, who doesn’t? And to be fair this is a pretty easy challenge for someone that loves to shop (ssh don’t tell Andy!).

What is this challenge I hear you ask? Well it’s to arrange a Christmas activity and I’ve decided to make this a fun Christmas activity that we can do outdoors on one of our walks.

There are a few things that I will need and I’ve been browsing One4all gift card to see what retailers I can use the card in. I really have nothing to worry about with the amount of retailers that you can spend the card in. Holly will definitely need wellies for our outdoor activity and I’m pleased to see that Clarks shoes has recently been added to the retailers list.

I have to resist the urge to go to Curry’s and buy myself a shiny new camera, I really don’t need one. But as we are going to be outdoors I may have to pop into Fat Face and see if they have a lovely coat that will keep me snug and warm.

One thing we will definitely be doing, is heading to M&S afterwards for a hot chocolate to warm up.

I’m amazed at how many retailers you can spend your One4all gift card at and whilst I normally like to be more personable when buying Christmas presents for people. This would make an ideal gift for that person that either has everything or you don’t know what to buy them. Because trust me, they will be able to spend this gift card!

I will be sharing with you soon our Christmas outdoor activity and what purchases I made…

    Ooh I love anything like this where you can use one gift card for a whole shopping centre! It’s such a great idea, especially when you aren’t sure which shop someone may want a gift card for, I can’t wait to hear more about it!

    Oooh, I have never heard of this One4all giftcard before but it sounds like they have some amazing retailers involved. This would be a perfect gift for me to send to my family. As I live abroad it can be difficult to find a gift that they will like and I can get delivered easily. This would be brilliant and solve all of my Christmas shopping problems in one hit! Thank you 🙂

    I’m doing this same challenge, isn’t it a fab one? I’ve been astounded at the amount of retailers who are available on the card, it is excellent and definitely the right present for the hard to buy for relative.

    Have fun shopping and I’ll look forward to your next post and seeing what you have been up to. Mich x

    One4all is amazing! I love that you can spend them anywhere. And you have much more willpower than me, I’d have been straight to Currys for a new camera!

    I’m looking forward to seeing what you buy x

  6. These gift cards sound like amazing ideas. It’s often hard to pick where to buy someone a gift card for. I look forward to seeing what you buy.

    I don’t like buying gift cards as the recipient would be limited as to what you can spent them on, but a card that you can use in lots of different shops is a great idea! Have fun planning your activity! 🙂
