There are certain things that we always to buy in our family at Christmas time.I call them our Christmas Shopping Essentials
We always have a big box of Thornton’s chocolates. We love Thornton’s and a huge box of their chocs is a treat that stretches back to my childhood and will probably out live me…though at the moment the kids would rather have choccy buttons which is a big plus point. I got this years box for just £5 from our local supermarket, no clue why they were so cheap but such a good deal.
Pringles are another luxury we always purchase at Christmas. I try and normally succeed in finding a two for one offer on these. We always had Pringles with our Christmas nut roast all plated up with our veg and roasties and I thought this was what everyone did. No one else seem to do this but it is a staple for our Christmas dinner!
New PJ’s are always a Christmas Eve treat..all part of being ready for Santa. Christmas shopping online for these is always cheaper if I check for discount codes first. Over at My Voucher Codes there are a host of discount voucher codes for all sorts of of different stores and these are just a huge boost when shopping for gifts ( and anything really – it is always worth a check!)
So we have new Pj’s, chocolates and crisps (sounds good to me!)
My daughter usually gets taken by her gran to buy a gorgeous new party frock too and the always go to Debenhams and choose something VERY princess like. It may well be worth Gran using a Debenhams discount code next year as these Princess party dresses aren’t cheap!
My hubby always likes a bottle of whiskey , the kids have to have gold coins and I always like a new mascara. I buy these when I see they are on a special offer and stash them away till Christmas. No one needs to know when they are bought do they?
There are lots of ideas for Christmas on a budget over at family budgeting do pop and have a look!
