Christmas shopping is never a stressless ordeal. Whether you've decided to trawl the rails in London's bricks and mortar – and with the current lockdown restrictions, you'll only have a few weeks to do so before the big day – or traipse through the digital deals found on e-stores, either method is just as exhausting as the other. However this year, that needn't be the case, as Bicester Village's Virtual Shopping service is here to do the work so you don't have to – see it as an early Christmas present.

Despite the village currently being closed, you can still shop their boutique bargains through their digital-sphere, with just a few clicks. Simply book a virtual appointment with your chosen boutique – which can happen over the phone, by email, a video call or WhatsApp – pick your purchases and then have them delivered to your door or organise to collect them. And even if this sounds slightly too tiresome, you can arrange for a personal shopper to organise all of this for you. Et voila! Christmas shopping sans stress!
