If you’re struggling to know what to buy the baked goods lover in your life this Christmas, Greggs may just have the answer.

The high street bakery is launching an exclusive range of gifts themed around popular menu items, including doughnut socks and a sausage roll phone case.

The range also includes the store’s first ever Christmas jumper, featuring the slogan “deck the halls with sausage rolls”, as well as a sausage roll umbrella and a range of pin badges.

To make your life that little bit easier, the bakery will even gift wrap them for you.

The promotion has been released to chime with new research, commissioned by Greggs, that finds Christmas shopping and wrapping presents are the two chores that people dread most over the festive period.

In a survey of 2,000 people, 68% said they dread the Christmas shopping and 47% the wrapping.

Hannah Squirrell, customer director at Greggs, said: “Fitting everything in at Christmas can be a struggle, and we wanted to help our customers lighten the load.

“Our free gift-wrapping service means weary shoppers can take a break while our elves wrap their presents, and they can even pick up some gifts for the Greggs fan in their life (or themselves) with our limited edition range.”

Sadly the range is only sold on a very limited basis.

The gift selection and wrapping service will be available in just five stores nationwide – in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow – from December 11 to 13, from 4pm to 8pm.
