    Default Online shopping - click and collect question

    So, I've just come back from an emergency overseas trip for a funeral.

    This has thrown christmas into disarray and I am ashamed to say I've not done any Christmas present shopping yet.

    Problem is that I have the boys - hubby is away working and there is no possible way I can do the shopping without the boys. This kinda ruins the whole concept of Christmas if I shop with them.

    Similar to the Woolworths click and collect for groceries - are there any stores who offer this service for items such as toys / clothes etc?

    This is the only way I can figure out a way to grab the presents without them knowing what I've done.

    Please help!

    I'm not sure if any of the bigger stores do it but perhaps you could plead your case with a smaller independent shop that has online shopping where you could buy online and ask them if you could just collect it from them directly?? I hope you get some ideas. Good luck.

    Mr Toys toyland put something on hold for me but only 24 hours. You could call them and ask the to 'hold' what you are wanting for the 24 hours. Although they would not let me pay over the phone.

    Just an idea!

    Good luck!

    Not sure how old your boys are but pretty sure Harvey Norman do it, so you could get games or an iPod, not really sure what else they sell that would be appropriate for kids though so probably not much help!

    Thank you all - I just called Mr Toys Toyworld who are bagging everything up for me to run in and collect.

    Huge Christmas cuddles for them.

    I'm so happy x
