Shop local this Christmas!

Are you struggling to do your Christmas shopping?  Is it a headache?  A nightmare?  Or just plainly (or painfully) stressful?

If so shop local in Sevenoaks!  We have some fantastic shops where you'll be bound to find that very individual gift!

Consider The Chinaman for special Christmas decorations; Sevenoaks Bookshop for a good Christmas read; The Danish Shop for chic interiors; Lovell & Vie at Hollybush for indulgent lingerie; Chic et tralala - well the name says it all for this desirable interiors shop!  Or for gifts with a difference try Lark, at London Road.  Or treat yourself to an early gift from Grace Accessories in central Sevenoaks; buy your loved one a diamond from Francis Jones; a mouthwatering selection of chocolates from The Chocolate Shop and then sneak to The Compact Disc for a CD of carols to put you in the Christmas mood!

And where is all this to be found? In SimplySevenoaks of course!

Happy gift hunting for a happy Christmas!
