With less than two weeks to go until Christmas Day the Geronigo elves are working their tiny socks off, and would you believe it they’ve even started doing their research ahead of Christmas 2018!
Yep, the Geronigo elves certainly like to stay ahead of the game and in their spare time they’ve been busy trying to identify the different types of Christmas shopper – everybody needs a hobby, right?
Now, they say their research is still in its early phases, but we’ve had a sneak peek and we think they’re definitely onto something. So here’s a little look at the five types of shopper they’ve spotted so far..
The Super Shopper
You know the ones, they did all their shopping months ago and they’ve had it wrapped since September. Instead of fighting their way round the shops they’ve spent the last couple of months showing off about how organised they are. Annoyingly they’re pretty good at wrapping too..
The Last Minute Hero
Ah, the last minute hero. Well all aspire to be like the last minute hero. Instead of stressing about shopping they focus on everything else the festive season has to offer. Then, with a day or two to spare they nip down the shops and pull it out of the bag with incredible presents for absolutely everybody they know. How do they do it?!
The Christmas Crafter
Everybody knows a Christmas crafter. They’re the type of people who watched Kirsty’s Handmade Christmas (great show by the way) and thought, yeah I can do that. Well, we hate to be the ones to break it to you, but you can’t! We don’t want your homemade Christmas chutney, we don’t want your knitted baubles, and unless you’re six years old we don’t want you to make our presents. Sorry.
The Supermarket Sweeper
Like the last minute hero the supermarket sweeper always leaves things as late as possible.. but not through choice. Whether it’s due to work commitments, school nativities or a stacked social life, they just haven’t found the time and now they’re racing round the supermarket shoving everything and anything into their trolley. Merry Christmas, here’s that shaving foam you always wanted.
The One Day Wonder
You’ve got to admire the one day wonder. No matter what the festive season throws at them they just refuse to to left Christmas defeat them. It doesn’t matter how long it takes, how many queues they have to stand in and how many bags they have to carry, they’re not coming home until the Christmas shopping is done. It could take 2 hours, it could take 12, they really don’t care!
