You can even head on over to Covent Garden Piazza where you will find one of the biggest Christmas trees in the country, amazing decorations with some great photo opportunities, and don't forget to check out the Frozen and Lego free exhibitions there this Christmas! If you're shopping for her this Christmas, then you won't want to miss Covent Garden's Beauty Quarter, which is full of the top names and brands in Cosmetics!

Oxford Street

Oxford Street is well-known for its fantastic year round shopping destination but, in winter, it's an even more beautiful sight! Be ready to gaze in awe at the twinkling Christmas lights illuminating the streets. Have your cameras or phones ready to snap pics of the beautiful Christmas window displays. You'll be spoilt for choices on gift ideas here, with options ranging from tech to fashion and more. Head a little further down the road to Regent Street for plenty of flagship stores, including Hamleys, where you can stock up on toys for your little ones this Christmas.

Carnaby Street

Who doesn't enjoy a stroll down the famous Carnaby Street? It's only a short walk away from both Oxford Street and Regent Street, so you could visit all three in one day for the ultimate Christmas shopping trip! Here you'll find many independent fashion boutiques as well as fashion and lifestyle retailers, which make for perfect shopping locations for the fashion fiends in your life. This is the best time of year to visit Carnaby Street, as it's covered in brightly coloured Christmas lights that are sure to wow!


If you're looking to escape the busy Christmas crowds this year, then try getting your shopping done at Camden Market! Camden is known to be a hip and trendy area, so you're bound to find some unique gifts in this part of London. Like most areas of the capital, Camden is also adorned with festive Christmas lights to impress. Camden Market is the place to go to for some fabulous finds for friends and family, as well as tasty treats you can tuck into yourself! The week before Christmas, Camden Market is also opening longer on selected days for some late night shopping, so there's no excuses not to get yourself down there and stock up on your wish list items!


There are two Westfield Shopping Centres in the London area, which house over 500 shops in total! You can choose to visit either one in London or Stratford or, if you really want to go all out, visit both to get the ultimate shopping experience. In the run up to Christmas, both centres have extended shopping hours and stay open until 10pm, so those of you who are late night and last minute shoppers will have no problems grabbing the perfect gifts you need for Christmas. Westfield really does offer anything and everything, whether it's a new pair of slippers for your Grandma, a new toy for your dog, or some stunning jewellery for your partner. There's a combination of high street names and luxury brands, so there's options for all budgets.


You're missing out if you don't hit up Mayfair in the Christmas period. You'll experience the beautiful bordering of Hyde Park and are a stone's throw from Bond Street, the shopping centre of London. Shoppers can head to high-end Burlington Arcade and Shepherd Market, where they'll find a cluster of independent boutiques and traditional pubs to shop until you drop (in for a quick pint!) It's the perfect place to grab a gift that's a little more luxurious and a little more unusual, and indulge in a little self care at the same time.

Designer Outlets

There's a couple of great designer outlets in London that are perfect for Christmas shopping for branded products. Icon Outlet, located at the O2, houses big name brands like Radley, Nike, Jack Wills and more, and it's in an ideal location for central London shopping, bordering the Thames. London Designer Outlet is another option, located in Wembley. It's known for being the biggest outlet store in London, with up to 70% off RRP on many recognisable brands, including Levi's, Tommy Hilfiger, Converse and more. Perfect for shoppers who like big brands at a fraction of the cost!

As well as picking up your new batch of sparkly Christmas decorations, you tend to find more unique and handmade gifts at Christmas markets. They're ideal places for bringing the family for a fantastic day out, with plenty going on for everyone to enjoy! Whether you decide to head to Winter Wonderland, Southbank Christmas Market, Leicester Square Christmas Market, Selfridges or Greenwich, you're bound to find some amazing gifts for your loved ones this year!
