To me, presents aren’t the be all and end all of Christmas, everyone works to a different budget. I’ve certainly had ‘blow out’ years where i have gone a bit mad and treated absolutely everybody (including the pets). This year will be different as the purse strings are a little tight especially with my house move coming up, which my brother has recently done too, my family has decided to keep the spending minimal – there are other ways to make the festive season special. Luckily i’m quite savvy when it comes to money anyway and i usually save my Boots point all year round. As much as i’m sticking to a budget this year it’s always nice to have something to open on the day so i have set myself a little mission; five gifts under a fiver each. These could easily be stocking fillers or even main gifts, whichever budget you are working to i have hunted around and found some affordable treats.
My main rule for buying is presents is to pick something that i would like to receive, stick to this and you won’t go wrong. Happy shopping folks!
