Gosport, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 02, 2010 -- Born Gifted, one of the UK's largest online retailers of baby gifts and goods, has just announced their busiest Christmas to date, with sales up 35% over last year. Despite the recession, people seem to have flocked to buy goods from their site throughout November and December.
Stores both on and offline have been suffering the credit crunch. With families having to dig deeper in their pockets than ever just to buy essentials, there just hasn't been the kind of money available to splash out as in previous years. Nonetheless, Born Gifted has seen a massive increase in sales of their Christmas gifts and other lines in the lead-up to the Christmas period.
Much of this has been put down to the quality and variety of goods on their site. Although the site specialises in educational baby toys and gifts, there are things here for the whole family, including charming wooden and handcrafted toys that would look as good on the mantelpiece as they would the nursery. The personalised Christmas baubles, for example, make beautiful keepsakes that can be brought out year after year.
Born Gifted's easy-to-navigate, clearly laid out site makes choosing and ordering a simple process. Here you will find traditional toys, personalised baby gifts, handmade cushions, porcelain gifts and Fair Trade products sourced from around the world. Many Born Gifted lines cannot be found in high street shops, making it the perfect place to shop for unusual gifts.
Born Gifted sell Christening gifts, Godparent gifts and have countless first birthday gift ideas on their site as well as seasonal presents. All the well-loved baby ranges, such as Winnie the Pooh, Beatrix Potter and Hungry Caterpillar, are covered.
When it comes to festive occasions, Born Gifted is the obvious place to go - as was proven by their Christmas sales. "So far we have had an extremely busy festive period, with more people seemingly looking online for gifts than ever before," said a spokesperson for Born Gifted. "Our sales are up 35% on last year, with all our new ranges proving really popular."
