Top Christmas Money Saving Tips! Gifts!!

There are dozens of ways to enjoy a fabulous family celebration while keeping a little more cash in your pocket....Here's a few idea's....


Buy one decent 'family' present instead of separate ones....So a board game for a family instead of four or five smaller more expensive gifts....

Grandparents will love personalised presents from the kids....Pick up some cheap canvases from your local craft shop and do hand print pictures....

Use pound shops for stocking fillers....

We do PJs as a Christmas Eve treat! They're actually a really boring present but the children don't realise that and think it is amazing getting a present before Christmas Day....

Check to see if there are any discount codes for online sites by checking out various websites which offer discount codes....

Chocolates in a mug or mason jar....Buy a nice mug, fill it with chocolates (Quality Street or Roses are perfect because they’re colourful and wrapped), pop cellophane around the whole thing and tie with some ribbon...Easy!!

If you have friends or family that could do with your help babysitting or help around the home you could offer your services with some vouchers for your time, redeemable throughout the year.....

Haggle....Remember, there’s no shame in asking retailers large or small for a discount especially where you’re buying expensive items....They would rather your business than none...So don’t be shy! 

Time your present shopping right....If you really need to go avoid the busiest times to avoid stress and buying something just to get out of the shop. If possible, go early in the day when shops open or late on a weeknight...Take advantage of many stores’ extended hours during December.

Use the Internet: If you only shop on the High Street, you may be missing out on deals available only to online shoppers. Plus you save on the petrol you might have to buy to get there!
