The running joke around this time of the year is the extreme amount of traffic, even for Beirut’s elevated standards of unusual congestion and it will only get worse this coming week. If you’re like most of us, you’re probably not even close to done with your Christmas shopping. That’s why Raghunter’s initiative this year is doubly awesome.

Every holiday season, Raghunter compiles a list of hundreds of Christmas gift ideas from dozens of Beirut’s favorite designers and retailers. This year’s catalog features over 900 ideas perfect for your friends, family and loved ones. What’s new this year though is that you also have the option of getting it delivered to you at the SAME PRICE as in-store!

You can Whatsapp them on 81–636982 with the code of your item or items of choice, and they will deliver it to your doorstep. You can pay by credit card or by cash on delivery.

Below is the list of participating stores and designers:

What I love most about Raghunter is their focus on local designers and businesses, instead of the usual mass-produced generic stuff people order off the Internet for Christmas. We now have the option to buy the perfect gift, hassle-free and from amazing designers and stores closer to home!

So, save your sanity, shop online, get your gifts delivered to you and avoid getting stuck in traffic for never-ending hours of the day!

PS: Raghunter is also teaming up with Uber Beirut and offering the first ride for free (for up to $10) upon signing up. All you have to do is use the promo code RAGHUNTER2016 and you won’t have to even pay for your delivery fees 🙂
