Christmas can be a hard time on your bank balance. You’ve got so many people to buy for and it can be really hard to try and find the perfect present for each and every one of your friends and family. You want to be sure that you get the present right, showing that you care and that you know the recipient really well.
Christmas doesn’t have to be a stressful experience for you and your bank balance though; by looking in the right places and seeking inspiration at every opportunity you really can manage to make it through Christmas without spending too much money.
One idea that is really good if you’re looking to save on Christmas presents is to look in your local supermarket at what gifts they offer. Many supermarkets offer schemes to help you to save money over the busy festive period such as buying your Christmas presents from Live Well For Less by Sainsbury’s.
This means that your presents will be unique and unusual – something different that the recipient is unlikely to expect to find under their tree. Schemes such as this also allow you to collect reward points (in this case Nectar points) for purchasing presents; not only do you get your Christmas shopping done but you get rewarded for it too!
While it may sound strange to look in the supermarket for your Christmas gifts, it can actually work out really well.
If you really don’t know what to get someone as a gift, vouchers are always a great option. This allows them to pick out whatever they want for themselves, taking the stress and pressure off you. For those who are difficult to buy for it also prevents any awkward moments where they try to hide the fact they don’t like the present you chose for them.
Alternatively, older recipients will benefit from having a little extra spending power when they hit the supermarket in the New Year – whether they spend it on clothing, jewelry or their weekly food shop is entirely up to them.
With a little bit of thought and research, enjoying Christmas without breaking the bank is definitely possible. Make sure that you plan early and look for the best deals on whatever you want to buy and don’t underestimate the possibilities your local supermarket could open up for you.
