I am the ultimate gift giver, something comes over me and before I know it, I am buying gifts left, right and centre.
Over the years I have perfected gift wrapping (something my mum loves about receiving my gifts….the packaging). I also buy gifts throughout the year so I reduce my Christmas present budget…. Savvy!
2020 has been quite an eye opener and the great re-set also gives us the opportunity to cut back on waste and live within our means. Previously Christmas was a time I was giving gifts that frankly stretched my budget, to make others happy. This year my approach has been very different, cutting back and only focusing on those who really cared about my well being over the past year.
I have curated a bunch of stocking fillers and presents for the last minute grinches amongst us and also compiled a bunch of savvy affordable ideas for those who really don’t have a lot of money to spend.
If there is thought that goes into a gift it really doesn’t have to be expensive. And don’t forget, that baking a cake, baking cookies or making something by hand is the most precious gift you can give. Enjoy……..x
