I have cracked it!
I have been looking on BuyaGift.com* and have cracked Mr S’s present! What I bought is top secret, though, as he reads my blog 😀. Suffice to say I am very confident he will like it and it was an absolute bargain!
If you have someone really tricky to buy for, BuyaGift.com does a good range of experiences such as spa days and cream teas.
We had a spa day recently and it was blissful. We also had three cream teas in close succession, using up Mr S’s birthday vouchers. This explains why my jeans are feeling a little tight at the moment!
I have been doing a lot of Christmas bargain hunting in Aldi. They have such a great selection of food and drink for a special occasion.
I even found gluten free mince pies in there this week so snapped those up in case my coeliac friend pops on for a cup of tea.
Aldi do a brilliant range of gift items such as slippers, books, PJs, chocolates, etc. They are so good if you have a really small budget for Christmas.
Christmas bargain hunting online
I have done a lot of shopping on Amazon.co.uk too, including some things from my eco friendly Christmas presents guide here.
It’s not that I don’t enjoy going to the town centre and physically choosing presents. There are two reasons why I don’t do this much. One is lack of time. It is easy and convenient to shop on my phone in my lunch break, for example.
The other is that I like to ask people what they want rather than waste money. They nearly always tespond with a couple of links to websites!
I will go into the town centre at the weekend as I need to do a few jobs in person. It will give me the opportunity to see the lights and do a little browsing. I do like the idea of supporting my local shops. It’s just that life gets in the way!
How is your christmas bargain hunting going?
