Let Welcome Break take the stress out of Christmas Day!


Date Posted: 21-12-2016

There’ll be a bright, shining white and green light on your Christmas journey this year. If you follow it, you’ll find all you need to calm that last minute panic on Christmas morning.

You’ve managed to squeeze all the presents, the suitcase, a couple of grumpy kids and the dog into the back of the car, loaded up your festive playlist and you’re only an hour behind. And then it starts. Your teenager announces they don’t like Turkey and won’t touch the food. Your youngest has forgotten their toothbrush, and there’s no way you’re going home to collect it.

Then you get that text from your anxious mum in urgent need of extra mince pies and some extra wine. Oh and your Great Aunt has shown up and suddenly you need that last-minute gift. You’ll be feeling frazzled more than festive!

Breathe deeply and relax, because Welcome Break is here to sort out all those last-minute Christmas problems! We’re open throughout the Christmas period, with our Waitrose shops full of Christmas cheer from 8am to 4pm on Christmas Day!

We have most of the emergency things you might need. Whether it’s a choice of delicious dishes to feed extra mouths, essential toiletries and a selection of emergency snacks. You’ll find Christmas puds, mince pies and crackers, and something to please even the fussiest of eaters.

Pop into WHSmith at Welcome Break to find that last minute present. Choose one of the many best-selling books for a gift that’s both thoughtful and sure to please. Remember to get a gift bag or some wrapping paper to complete the package.

Don’t forget to visit us here at Welcome Break on your home journey too. We can help with essentials like bread, milk, butter and eggs or something delicious to pop into the oven for a fuss-free supper. Maybe add a bottle of Champagne or Cava, or some ready-chilled beers. Well, it is Christmas!

You’ll also find a Starbucks open 24 hours at most locations, so why not indulge in a festive Red Cup along your way?

We wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
