This weekend saw the launch of Fosse’s Christmas Campaign, #FullOfYourFavourites. Fosse Shopping Park is the perfect shopping destination for me, and for many in and around South Leicestershire. It boasts free parking, is open relatively later and it has such a wide range of shops, with more joining the Fosse family over the next year or two.
Over this weekend, thousands of customers flocked to Fosse to start their Christmas shopping, and 1000 lucky customers were given something extra special from the shopping centre- a branded advent calendar filled with yummy chocolate, and ideas on where to shop for the festive period.
I went along to Fosse Shopping Park to find presents for a wide variety of loved ones in my life, and I managed to find presents for each and every person on my list, making Christmas an absolute doddle. So, fancy taking a look at what I managed to pick up. By the way- if you are expecting a Christmas present from me this year, look away now just in case 🙂
It’s funny, whenever I walk into Marks & Spencer, I still don’t feel adult enough to be there. No matter my age (almost 30 right now) or career status (pretty decent!) I feel like it’s going to be super expensive and just way out of my league. How wrong I was.
Marks & Spencer at Fosse have some absolutely incredible offers on over Christmas, including 3 for 2 on beauty products and gifts. There is something for literally everyone, as M&S have beauty, toys, clothing, food, alcohol and much more.
Whenever you have a child to buy for, Argos is always the first stop isn’t it? I remember as a child I would go through the Argos catalogue circling the things I would love Santa to bring me. I’m not sure whether my Mum even paid attention or not, or whether it was just a tactic to keep me busy for an hour or two, but it definitely cemented Argos into my mind for toys at Christmas time.
They too have some fantastic offers on at the one at Fosse, from free gifts with specific purchases to % discounts and more. Did you also know that Argos sell perfumes and beauty products? They are great for people of all ages, and literally start from children’s makeup sets that are really sweet.
Boots at Fosse is my most favourite of shops. It is HUGE, really bright and white and smells so delicious. They also have a number of premium beauty brands, a massive perfume section and rows and rows of makeup, skincare, haircare and more. There’s so many gift ideas, just available in boots for men, women and children.
Their 3 for 2 offers and Star Buys have become legendary, and the benefit of being such a large unit at Fosse is of course the capacity to have some of the bigger electrical appliances and gifts. I opted to buy some perfume for some of my favourite ladies over the festive period, as well as wonderful Ted Baker goodies for a friend that I know she will love.
At Fosse you will also find clothes shops like New Look, Outfit and River Island, as well as shoe shops like Office. There are sports shops, furniture shops and electrics and technology shops too, so there will certainly be a gift for every loved one. Once you have finished shopping, you also NEED to head to the Costa in the food court for a festive hot chocolate.
If you missed out on a calendar at the weekend, don’t despair as there is more Festive Fun at Fosse this Christmas!
At intervals between 11am and 3pm in Fosse Food:
Sun 2 Dec: Crumpet & The Penguins

Make sure you get involved with the campaign at Fosse by hashtagging #FullOfYourFavourites or #FullOfTheirFavourites when you’ve found the perfect gift for a loved one, or for yourself!
