Dobbies Garden Centres offers £3,000 Christmas box

Dobbies has launched a new £3,000 Christmas delivery service - with everything from the tree, decorations and presents handpicked, boxed-up and ready.

According to a new survey by Dobbies, in the coming weeks, Brits spend on average 21 hours a week prepping for the big day.

Dobbies say 43 per cent of the nation run out of Christmas prep time and have to squeeze in extra planning on the train in the morning and in bed at night - with 26 per cent comparing this prep to a second job.

The garden centre group offers hand selection of the tree, the dressing of it in baubles and colour schemes specified by the customer and a selection of Dobbies gifts wrapped professionally.

Everything is then packed into a Christmas box, which gets delivered to the customer's door by courier.

A 6ft Nordmann is £49.99 at Dobbies.
