Imagine the scenario: you’re packing your bags before you fly off to stay with family or friends for Christmas and you realise you’ve forgotten to buy an all-important gift. However, there’s no need to worry as you can always do some last minute Christmas shopping at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

We’ve put together our top five gift ideas that are easy to pick up just before you fly.

Fragrance from World Duty Free

Whether it’s pour homme or pour femme, World Duty Free has a fantastic range of designer fragrances with amazing savings over the high street. No matter if they love Chanel, Gucci, Calvin Klein or Hugo Boss, you’ll find all of their favourite brands and will be able to choose something really thoughtful to put under the Christmas tree.

Toiletries gift sets from Boots

Everyone loves to pamper themselves and Boots has a huge selection to choose from. You don’t even need to leave it until you’re in the airport. Order your gifts on the Boots website by 8pm on 23rd December and you’ll be able to collect them at the Liverpool John Lennon Airport branch after 12pm on Christmas Eve. Just remember to only order what you can feasibly carry on to your flight in an airport shopping bag.

Books from WHSmith

A book may seem like such a small gift but it can be a really thoughtful Christmas present for any bookworms in your life. WHSmith at Liverpool John Lennon Airport has a huge selection of bestsellers and must-read classics from top authors as well as a fantastic choice of children’s books. You could even pick yourself up something to read on the flight.

Money from Travelex Travel Money

Whether you want to get dollars or Euros for someone who’s off on their travels, or perhaps just some money for a friend or relative living abroad, Travelex Travel Money can help you get exactly what you need to pop in their Christmas card. You can even click and collect your money at the Travelex website, or use the ATMs at Liverpool John Lennon Airport to draw out Euros and Sterling.

Trainers at JD Sports

If you’re buying for an on-trend teen, stop in at the King of Trainers to pick up some cool footwear that they’ll love. JD Sports at Liverpool John Lennon Airport is completely tax free too, so buying your gifts last minute doesn’t mean it has to cost you a fortune.

Remember, you can take advantage of the airport shopping bag allowance, which means you can carry one standard size airport shopping bag on to any flight in addition to your hand luggage so your last minute gifts won’t have to be crammed in with everything else.

Last but not least, a very merry Christmas from all of us at Liverpool John Lennon Airport!
