Is it teething time for your little one?


We look forward to our days off so much that we spend all week planning every intricate detail and, for us, there is no better guilty pleasure than a good session of retail therapy.


For those of you who share our persuasion, you will be delighted to hear that, to many, shopping is actually right up there with a tough workout!


Indeed, according to new research conducted by gift card company One4All, one in three Irish adults actually consider shopping to be a form of exercise.



The research was released this week to coincide with the Shop4Crumlin campaign, in support of CMRF Crumlin; the main fundraising body for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.


As part of the campaign, for every transaction made using a One4All gift card - until Sunday, 14th August – the Happy Gifting Company will donate 50c to the CMRF Crumlin’s ‘Giggle Fund’.


It seems those polled consider shopping to be serious business, with almost half (54%) describing a day of retail therapy to be more tiring than a gym session!



When the rarity of a day spent shopping alone comes along, we can totally agree!
