TOP TIPS for saving money this Christmas

So that’s your tree sorted, but how else can you save some money over the festive season? We’ve put together some tips to ensure you stay within your budget this Christmas.

  • Make your own Christmas cards - need some inspiration? Head over to our blog for some handmade Christmas card guides. If you’re really feeling crafty, why not take a look at our handy alternatives to chocolate advent calendars?

  • Agree with family who you’re buying for. With larger families especially, it’s easy for present buying to get out of hand - suggest a secret santa or ‘children only’ rule, your family members will probably be as relieved as you!

  • Make a list and stick to it! If you make a definitive shopping list and stick to it, you won’t end up buying little things that you didn’t expect to purchase, and everything adds up to that big bill at the end!


Christmas is a wonderful time to spend with your family and loved ones, but don’t let the stress of the festive budget get you down. Do your Christmas shopping at cheaper places, and you could be surprised at how much you manage to save. You could even treat yourself with your savings in the January sales!
