WEBSITE OF THE DAY: John Lewis

Today is set to be one of the busiest online shopping days of the year.

That’s right: today. Christmas Day.

This surge in online shopping is driven partly by the relentless urge of the big retailers to steal a march on their rivals and start their sales a bit early.

But it’s also because millions of people will be unwrapping new laptops, tablets and smartphones today and one of the first things they’re likely to do is go looking for bargains.

It’s not for everybody, admittedly, but it’s set to be a bonanza.

But where to begin? For us, johnlewis.com is always high on the list of starting points.

With good old JL you know you’re getting quality and, more often than not, a good price.

If you can forgive them their schmaltzy Christmas ad campaign, this is where to come. Their sale is now in full swing, so be quick if you want to grab the good stuff before the shops reopen in a couple of days.

Happy Christmas everyone.
