It’s August, and Christmas is probably the last thing on your mind as you focus on the summer holidays. But for B&M, the festive season has come early.
The popular discount store is already selling LOL Surprise themed advent calendars for £7 each. Instead of chocolate behind the windows, shoppers should expect various ‘surprise’ items such as lip balms and bath bombs.
The advent calendars have 12 windows instead of 25, so your little ones would have to wait until December 12th before peeking behind a window every morning.
Currently they’re only available in-store, but we imagine they’ll start to be listed on the store’s website nearer the countdown to Christmas. But if you love Christmas or just love being organised, it might just be available at your local B&M.
But that’s not all, they’re selling Christmas gift sets early too. Shoppers can pick up £2.49 festive lip balms, Christmas themed bath fizzers featuring snowman, Christmas pudding and Santa designs, and a Hatchimal duo bath set.
As expected, Facebook users were mixed about B&M’s latest additions. Some people weren’t impressed they were selling Christmas gifts four months early, with one user writing: ‘😱 B & m it’s a bit early Lol’.
Another agreed, saying: ‘Wtf it’s August ffs let’s get summer done with first.’
But some were keen to get their hands on them, tagging friends with children who loved LOL Surprise. One user wrote: ‘I’ll need to go and look for this 😊’.
If you just can’t get enough of the Christmas spirit, Iceland are selling pigs in blankets so you can enjoy the Christmas dinner essential whenever you want. They’re sure to be a staple on any roast dinners you find yourself cooking.
Meanwhile, Disney have announced they’re remaking popular Christmas film Home Alone, and fans are not too pleased about that decision.
So whether you adore Christmas or you’re a bit of a Scrooge, there’s no denying that it’s already on people’s minds whether that’s gifts, food, or entertainment.
Do you think it’s too early for Christmas stuff, or is it good to be prepared? Head over to Facebook and let us know your thoughts!
