Why One-stop Shops Are Our Favourite This Christmas

Brought to you by Article sponsor

With only a few days left until the big day, one-stop shops are our favourite for getting any last-minute shopping done!

The lead up to Christmas can be stressful at the best of times, but it doesn’t have to be. One-stop shops, where everything is under one roof, is the Christmas miracle you need in your life!

One of our favourites is The Arboretum, which is located in both Carlow and Wicklow. This one-stop hidden gem has everything you need to make your Christmas magical under one roof.

If you need further convincing that one-stop shops are the
way forward this Christmas, check out our top three reasons below.

Less Stress

Why traipse around hundreds of busy shops, when you can just breeze leisurely through one? The Arboretum has free parking at both of its locations, which takes the stress out of busy multi-story car parks in town centres. The five-star award-winning Garden Centre also has beautiful winter garden walks you can indulge in if you need a break from shopping.

Get Something For Everyone

One-stop shops are the answer to your Christmas shopping prayers! You can get something for everyone in one place, saving you valuable time over the festive period. The Arboretum has a fantastic Christmas shop, where you can buy beautiful decorations, as well as homewares and a wide selection of gifts suitable for all of your loved ones

Turn it Into a Day Out

One of our favourite things about one-stop shops is that you can turn your trip into a magical family day out!  The Arboretum is the perfect backdrop for a festive day out. Whether you visit Santa’s Grotto, get your family photo taken at their Disney Frozen 2 Installation or meet real-life reindeer, you are guaranteed to have a fantastic day. To round it all up, you can treat the family to some delicious treats and a hot chocolate in Rachel’s Garden Café.
