Last Minute Gifts for Christmas & Last Posting Dates

New Rainbow of Milan Umbrellas

We really hope all of our customers have enjoyed using our 2014 Christmas Gift Guide to help choose those ideal Christmas presents for family and friends this year! It has certainly been busy here at Brolliesgalore, and it seems that just as soon as we create the guide for Christmas that new stock is already arriving! The new umbrella designs are so lovely that we know they would make fantastic presents this year, so we made sure we got them up on our website as soon as possible after their delivery on Thursday and we thought we would do our blog earlier this week so that you have time to get these new brollies for Christmas!

As many of our customers will attest, the Rainbow of Milan umbrellas have been one of our success lines. We started a few years back stocking the famous Duck umbrellas, and after seeing how popular these were we decided to diversify the different lines of Rainbow of Milan umbrellas available to our customers at Brolliesgalore. One recent arrival that has been exceedingly popular with Christmas shoppers has been the Cat umbrella - we had sold out of many of these beautiful umbrellas the other week, but we have now topped up our stocks, so why not check out the full range of Cat Umbrellas now to grab them before they go again!

To our Rainbow of Milan line we also introduce the new Butterfly and Flora (Cherry Blossom) range of folding umbrellas. These brollies are more compact folding umbrellas than the Duck and Cat umbrellas, but they are no less pretty! Featuring a delightful range of bold coloured canopies with a scattering of flowers or butterflies on top, we are sure our customers will simply adore these new umbrellas. What's more they would make the best stocking fillers for your loved ones this year. You can also be sure that these will be a present that will certainly get used (particularly with the notoriously rainy British weather!)

If you want to see the full range of these, check out the Butterfly and Flora Umbrellas by Rainbow of Milan here.
