We could all do with a helpful elf or two at this time of year.
At Cork’s boutique Montenotte hotel however, they’re offering the next best thing: staff will professionally gift wrap your Christmas shopping while you sleep.
Imagine; no grappling with reams of sellotape, unruly wrapping paper and scissors… just expertly wrapped presents, all ready to hand out on Christmas Day.
The luxury service is completely complimentary for visiting guests; simply drop off up to five gift items at the concierge desk and head off for dinner and drinks or hit the spa for some rest and relaxation.
Later, sink into your luxury bed for the night and the next morning all your purchases will be beautifully wrapped and adorned with ribbons, ready for you to collect after breakfast at the check-out desk.
Of course, nobody will believe you really wrapped them yourself but it is the season of giving so why not give yourself a break?
I know we only live down the road but it’s almost worth booking a staycation.
