    Would this be rude?

    Buying a Christmas gift online for someone and telling them to go and collect it. All paid for. The store is about 10 minutes away from where they live. Not good enough friend for me to splash out on delivery X)

    Just want views if someone did this to you. Its a nice gift and they will love it. Just a matter of them getting it. Different town and so no chance for hand delivery.

    I wouldn't mind, but in case they do I would explain to them that if you had it sent to yourself, and then you had to re-send it, it might not have been delivered in time due to the PO strikes

    wow thank you.. perfect excuse. forgot about that.

    will they be able to collect it if you have paid? just thinking of a possible embarrassing moment and wasted trip when they're refused collection

    Yes I would go and collect my present from you and thanks X)

    That should be ok as it will be their details and my payment using my credit card and will
    inform credit card company before placing an order that order is for someone else. First time Im doing this
    and so hoping all will be ok.

    No present for me then X)

    Just stretch the truth, you ordered it early November and it got lost in the post, so they had to resend it, and you feared it wouldn't arrive on time ;-)

    Will be going with that. 8). Hopefully they won't mind picking it up.

    What store is it? Some stores require the payment card at point of collection.

    sadly this isn't an option for me. Im probably making it harder but never had a problem with click and
    collect at Tesco and most times, didn't even see my card. But I will give them a call before.

    It`s the thought that counts, it`s still a gift\present were adults !

    I have a load for you

    I've done this with a relative who didnt bother to pick up a present that was kept at the post office because they were out when the PO tried to deliver. So I suggest your excuse is that it is so they can collect at a time that suits them.

    Sent my mum to pick up the Christmas thongs I ordered her, go for it!

    Filth. You're out of control.

    you could just send them a picture of what you were going to buy them, it's the thought that counts.

    I wouldn't mind, it's a nice gesture.

    If its Tesco, I would text them a copy of the reservation number. Generally they ask either the number or name, and if its clothing or non clothing.
    Usually Tesco are quite good

    I told you this not paying for it wouldn't end well

    Not rude at all

    Unless the cost of the gift doesnt cover the petrol & parking.

    Then again. What an excellent idea.... Buy people you hate 10p gifts & get them to collect.

    Depends where from

    Lidel no
    Aldo no
    Tesco no

    House of frazer yes
    Shofskie yes
    Penhalagans yes

    ahhh, won't the receiver have to show I.d?
    tell them to take that.

    All sorted with my credit card company and Tesco Customer service. Used their details
    but I paid for it. So they can collect it with their own ID. Sadly, they will get a receipt so will find out
    how much it cost.

    Main thing I was worried is if it would look bad asking someone to
    pick up their gift. Will be using the excuses given in this thread so thank you.

    If anyone sends me a present, i'd go to their house to collect it, never mind the shop 10 minutes away.

    If they get upset then dont send them any more presents. Simple.
