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.
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.
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 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?
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.
