Argos reveals top 20 most Fast-Tracked items on Christmas Eve

Air beds for unexpected guests, batteries, light bulbs – and chocolate fountains – are some of the last minute items ordered by the nation on Christmas Eve 2016.

Argos has revealed the most popular products requested by its customers for same-day Fast Track delivery on Christmas Eve last year, which suggests that preparing for house guests, cold weather (and stocking fillers) are all on the minds of customers at this critical time in the festive calendar.

The top 20 Fast Tracked products from Christmas Eve 2016 were:

  • Osram Classic Golf Ball Bulb
  • Simple Value Cosy Single Duvet
  • WWE Action Figure Assortment
  • Osram Halogen Bayonet Cap Bulb

Argos head of Fast Track Delivery Darren Frost said: “We know Christmas is a busy time for families so it’s easy to forget essential items, or be surprised with late additions to a Christmas guest list.  The dominance of toys and homeware in last minute customer orders demonstrates that when it comes to Christmas, children and house guests take priority.

“It’s inevitable that some Christmas preparations get left to the last minute.  So, whether people urgently need a turkey baster, batteries for the kids’ toys, or even an emergency chocolate fountain, our Fast Track delivery service can make it happen.”

Customer can order up to 1pm for same-day Fast Track delivery before 5pm on Christmas Eve with Argos, subject to availability.
