Other ideas for managing costs this Christmas include asking family and friends to get items from the kids’ Christmas list, people are often happy to be told what to buy as it saves the guesswork!
And for those relatives you will not swop presents with until after Christmas Day, consider buying their gifts on Boxing Day, toiletry sets, toys and other gift ideas are often heavily reduced and you could make significant savings.
However you spend the festive season, have a very Happy Christmas!
