Christmas might feel a bit different this year, we may not be able to see all our family and friends, especially those who live abroad. However, international Christmas shopping is now easier than ever so we can still let them know we’re thinking about them.
The world can feel really big at the moment, with lots of travel restrictions in place the distances between loved ones seem to have grown, which is particularly tough at Christmas. The ease and accessibility of international Christmas shopping means that the right heartfelt gift can be delivered directly to your loved ones’ door, making you feel that bit closer to the people you miss the most.
Maybe you want to send your mum in Australia a bouquet and a cold bottle of bubbly to sip in the sun on Christmas day, or perhaps your grandchildren live in Europe and you want to send them the latest toys to fill their stockings. Currensea’s multi-currency debit card allows you to make online purchases in any currency with no additional fees.
Amazon helps make the process even easier, with local fulfilment in 19 countries. You can use your Currensea card to pay in any currency straight from your UK bank account the same way you would at home. All this with the added benefit of not having to worry about Royal Mail Christmas shipping deadlines.
It’s always great to support local businesses, whether at home or abroad. So if you have a favourite spot overseas that offers local home delivery to your loved ones, Currensea is accepted in the millions of locations that accept Mastercard payment.
International Christmas shopping does not just mean presents either, you might want to buy some crucial supplies for the big day. Perhaps you can’t get home this year and want to get a taste of home delivered to your door, or maybe you fancy some traditional delicacies for the festive season; some French Camembert, Spanish Rioja, or Swiss Chocolate.
2020 has been a long year for all of us, so maybe you want to get yourself a Christmas present this year. You deserve that bottle of perfume from Paris, that gadget or limited edition trainers from the States. If you’re buying from abroad, why pay more for your international purchases?
