It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…except in your flat, where embracing the festive season has only gone as far as you downing a vat of mulled wine while single-handedly polishing off half of the M & S Christmas food section.  It’s time to get a handle on the hangover, shake off the sugar rush and kick-start your Christmas shopping.  But this holiday season, you can skip the mall madness and let your fingers do the walking to HK’s new online shops, which are offering super fast delivery and even complimentary Christmas gift wrapping. Suddenly, you’re starting to believe in Santa again…or maybe it’s the wine!
