Shopping over the internet is a bit slower, but it zips along. And at
least you can avoid the crowded madness and perhaps you'll even find
out what "holiday calm" means.
Are you thinking about how to shop for Christmas and at the same
time avoid the yearly buying fever? Sit down at your computer and
visit the oldest internet shop, which will bring you the varied offer
of goods of five shops, from computer technology to household appliances
to music. For the breadth of its assortment, low prices, high-quality
staff, and supplementary services it received the prestigious Merchant
of the Year award this year.
Christmas is coming, and it's mainly a holiday for children. At "mamut" you'll
find well-known toy brands like Matchbox, Barbie, Disney, and Lego.
At each of more than twenty firms' sections, the products are divided
into further sub-categories, and for specific toys there are also
detailed descriptions and photographs. Ordered goods are delivered
COD within one week.
On this internet "counter" you can choose from more than
30,000 music titles, tens of thousands of films, and 2,000 games
for major platforms like PC, PS One, PlayStation 2, GameCube, GameBoy,
Nintendo DS, and gaming hardware. If you're looking for a specific
product and can't find it in any of the stated sections, try writing
to firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will try to make sure you get it.
Goods are usually shipped within four days.
This is the online version of the well-known shop with unusual
domestic accessories, in colonial or modern design, utilizing
patinated metal. Besides shopping for gifts, you can also order
from the broad offer of services, including the delivery of goods
to your home. The on-line restaurant services can also arrange
the delivery of goodies for dinners or parties anywhere. The
virtual catering menu includes both fresh-water fish and seafood.
This brick-and-mortar store with designer household accessories
on Revoluční Street offers the most convenient version of internet
shopping. The broad assortment is clearly divided into the categories
of style, cooking, bar, household accessories, bathrooms, offices,
gardens, etc., so you'll know right away where to click.
Radka Křivánková, whose name is in the Guinness Book of Records,
is the person behind this website; she has packaged the smallest
and the largest gifts in the world. And your surprise can have
any dimensions - just choose the type and color of the paper,
ribbon, or foil, and decide whether you will pick it up at the
Prague shop on Legerova street or have any of the packages delivered.
You can also order original greetings on hand-made paper.
You've bought the presents, but you just can't manage to supply
your household with food? Groceries, spirits, drogerie goods,
and even office supplies are conveniently available on the z-market
site. The minimum purchase is CZK 749 and delivery is free within
30 kilometers of Prague.
Every year consumption of alcoholic beverage increases during Christmas
and New Year's celebrations. Why lug an arsenal of bottles from
a nearby shop or mess around visiting wine shops? Buy a supply
of soft drinks as well for the entire holiday period. Delivery
is free of charge for orders over CZK 2,900, otherwise it costs
about CZK 140, not including tax.
An internet shop with a broad scope. Focus on table decorations

and accessories in general that will raise your dining to the

If you need a large quantity of Christmas and New Year's greeting
cards - perhaps for your firm - you can go to this company's
B2B internet shop. You can choose from a wide range of greeting
cards for packages, interesting postcards, stationery sets, and
even everything you need to wrap presents.
Effective lighting helps lend color to a Christmas atmosphere.
This firm's employees will visit you and advise you on how to
realize your ideas, and after reaching an agreement, they will
elaborate a free graphic design and offer a price estimate. Luminous
hangings, chains, and garlands can adorn not only building interiors
but also trees that will then look like they're wrapped in glistening
ice. At www.kvetiny-sos.cz, this firm offers decorative artificial,
dried, and fresh-cut flowers, plants, and trees.
True, smoking's bad for your health, but cigar and pipe lovers
don't heed this warning. If you want to give someone close to
you a luxury product of this sort and aren't sure where to buy
what, this web site can help you. Besides lots of information
and interesting things, this site contains an overview of tobacco
product shops and ratings of their quality, including references
