Some of Britain’s most ingenious inventors have joined with intu to create ‘impossible-to-buy’ gifts this Christmas and you could win one of them PLUS a £400 intu gift card!
Research by intu, owner of some of the UK’s largest and most popular shopping centres, has revealed that one in ten parents (11%) have at least one ‘impossible’ gift to find this Christmas. The average Brit will spend £425 on Christmas presents this year, up just under 1% on last year and one in three (32%) say they don’t always find the perfect gift, with socks the most common last resort Christmas present.
As a result of the research, intu selected five great British inventors to work with and create truly impossible gifts, which will be won by shoppers in the run up to Christmas!
- Willy-Wonka style sweets that taste like Christmas dinner by Smith & Sinclair
- Being illustrated into an comic book star by Dennis the Menace artist Nigel Parkinson
- Being turned into an actual LEGO® character by certified LEGO® Builder Duncan Titmarsh
- A dress that turns its wearer into a princess at the pull of a string by Channel 4 seamstress Charlotte Denn
- A real fairy house sprinkled with fairy dust by woodcrafter extraordinaire Jonathan Sherwood

Leigh Brooks, Marketing Manager at intu Watford, comments: “It’s a lovely truth that children and even adults will sometimes put impossible gifts on their Christmas lists, but at intu Watford you’ll find all your Christmas presents – even the seemingly impossible ones. While we know we have something for everyone at our centre, we decided to take things a little further and work with some of the brightest minds in the country to make some impossible gifts, possible! So whether you want Santa to turn you into LEGO® or you want Christmas dinner in sweets, at intu we’ll have something that is certain to make you smile!”
The impossible range of gifts follow intu’s Christmas TV advert, which sees a duckling finally able to fly with the help of a brand new drone.
