Useful information about christmas. Thanks for sharing.

Some good tips! Only if we would start early, which we say every year and never do.

Very insightful and useful. Cheers for sharing.

I buy gifts throughout the year and storage them away until Christmas. This way I'm not outlaying all that money in one shot and I can pick up stuff people really want when I see it rather than settling for something in December.

Great ideas - plus having gifts on hand helps all year when birthdays etc come up
