Still got some last-minute christmas shopping to do? Shall we help you with that? Ask a member of staff to help you find the books on yoru wishlist, suggest titles for people with no wishlist, or just point you in the direction. We already asked them for ideas – there’s a sleighful of gift ideas for 2011 elsewhere on this blog. (Please note that some of these titles have been very popular since we suggested them. Most are in stock, but a couple have sold out.)
Once you’ve bought your gifts, we’ll make them look professionally pretty for you too!
Let us wrap your gifts and treat you to hot drinks and cookies!
On December 22nd, 23rd and 24th, ABC Amsterdam will offer a special gift wrapping service on all purchases made at the store. Show your ABC receipt to our gift-wrap elves outside the store (weather permitting – we’ll move indoors if it’s too blustery), and they’ll wrap your gifts for you. While you wait, we’ll serenade you with Christmas music, and treat you to delicious mulled wine, hot chocolate and cookies.
The sessions take place on:
- Thursday December 22nd: 3pm to 7pm
- Friday December 23rd: 3pm to 7pm
- Saturday December 24th: 12 noon to 5pm
Obviously you can have your presents wrapped beautifully in our branch in The Hague too, at any time. You just wont be able to get tipsy while you wait.
Just for full disclosure, we’re hoping that having a separate wrapping service will keep the lines at our cash desks moving along smoothly, especially for those customers who chose to wrap their own gifts at home. We will wrap your gifts at the cash desk wherever possible, but when it’s extra busy, we may ask you to use the extra wrapping service.
