Buying Xmas Presents for the Mrs

Well it only seems like yesterday since last years stress and grief set in for the festive period, but sad to say its already come round once again to that dreaded time of year. As hard working men young and old across the world site in their offices staring at computer screens, the burning thought remains in the back of the mind: the sheer rising panic about what to buy your wife or girlfriend for Christmas. Of course you want to get her something special - right? You don't want to end up buying her a voucher or something similarly thoughtless! After all if you don't hit the xmas jackpot you're most likely going to get another 12 months of bother from her until the next xmas time comes around - and nobody wants that.
      Luckily however, the inspirational hand of help is here - and you can even get yourself a little bit of joy out of the event as well by picking a gift carefully. If you have to buy your girlfriend a present this xmas - why not invest in some nice clothes for her? Ladies fashion garments can sometimes take a bit of choosing and prior thought - but you can always try and get one of her friends to help out in picking something nice. She will simply love a nice bit of designer clothing for the festive period - and with all those parties for you and her to go to you can dress her up stylishly and attractively in your dream date night wear - then both of you get to enjoy the full benefits of her Christmas present ;-)

The new shop located in the Highcross Shopping Centre will be the 5th "bricks and mortar" incarnation of the leading men's designer clothing brand here in the UK.  The news of the Leicester shop opening comes following the successful recent launch of the Luke Roper store in St David’s Shopping Centre, Cardiff on 7th of August.

Famous for its rugged but stylish collection of designer menswear, the Luke brand has been continuing to look to expand its horizons beyond designer Luke Roper's old stomping ground in the West Midlands. The Luke shop in The Bullring in Birmingham opened with a bang in late April 2011, with the opening party attended by members of indie band The Enemy as well as Premier League stars from Aston Villa FC.
