It’s estimated that £42 million of unwanted Christmas presents are thrown away every year. That’s a lot of gifts and money going to waste.

Gift experience

If you’re trying to think of gift ideas for the special someone, why not opt for a gift experience this year? This could be anything from a family day out at a local Country park or festival or theatre tickets to a show. This ensures the magic of Christmas lasts that little bit longer.

Homemade gifts

Sometimes spending time can be the best possible gift. Taking the time to bake and make family and friends a gift can really make it a special occasion.

Secret Santa

Secret Santa is a great way to reduce the expense of Christmas and ensure that everyone gets something they really want. Why not suggest doing a secret Santa to your friends and family this year?

Gift Donation

Thousands of unwanted gifts are thrown away every year. If you're unsure about a gift, consider keeping hold of the gift receipt so you can get something you really want.

Alternatively, you could rehome your unwanted gifts to people in your community. If you receive a gift that’s not to your taste, donate it to your local charity shop or give it away to someone in your local community using Freegle.
