The Top Ten This Christmas At The Warehouse

The Top Ten This Christmas At The Warehouse
- Christmas looks Rosy this year -

Auckland, 15 December: It appears that New Zealanders will be having an electronic Christmas this year, with CDs and DVDs and gaming consoles making up a large part of the top presents bought from The Warehouse this Christmas.

Televisions around the country will be buzzing and beeping on Christmas morning with either the black PlayStation2 console, or the Nintendo Wii. And if they’re not being used for games, they’ll be screening the latest DVD releases, like Ice Age 2 The Meltdown, or Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.

The traditional summer backyard won’t be neglected; the three-burner gas BBQ for around $100 is perfect for family BBQs, and the magic bullet blender will make food preparation quick easy, leaving more time to read a good book – like Bryce Courtenay’s Sylvia.

As every Kiwi backyard needs a trampoline, The Warehouse trampoline, with blue padded spring guards for safety, can take all the excess energy kids have over summer. And no-one will be out of touch with the Nokia 2118 selling for under $100.

But the top selling gift is Cadbury Roses. For just under $9, a box of these is the trusted Christmas standby for unexpected guests or sudden Secret Santa gifts.

1. Cadbury Roses chocolates 250g $8.99
2. Now 22 $22.99
3. Tamagotchi version 4 $19.96
