A Christmas Shopping Trip To Stockholm

A Christmas Shopping Trip To Stockholm

During the next six weeks, the shopping centres of local towns in the UK will be overcrowded with people looking for the perfect Christmas presents for their closest friends and family. Christmas shopping can often be stressful and frustrating, as you search the shops and pound the pavements for exactly what you’re after. It’s impossible to escape a festive shopping trip, but it’s not impossible to make the trip a real adventure, which consists of both shopping and travelling. So why not head abroad?

From Britain To Scandinavia And Back

Every country has different Christmas traditions and also other kinds of interesting sweets and treats offered at this time of the year. Scandinavia is an interesting place to visit around Christmas because in comparison to Britain there is almost a 100 percent chance to get snow! The beautiful city of Stockholm, for example, is worth a Christmas visit. The Christmas Market in the Old Town provides a special atmosphere, and allows everyone to try a Scandinavian warm drink with a hint of alcohol. While staying at hotel Birger Jarl in Stockholm, it might be possible to get some discounts in order to save some money for the sightseeing tour and the shopping for presents. A real Scandinavian pullover, a little reindeer toy or a book about Scandinavian culture could be brought home as gifts from abroad.

Heading Back To The UK

After an exciting trip to a foreign country, you usually sees your home country in a different light. Gathering your last gifts in local shops, you may find pieces which you overlooked beforehand. It could therefore be a great idea to buy a new travel bag for a friend in order to encourage him or her to dare having an adventure as well.
