When is the best time to start Christmas shopping?

Posted on August 28, 2017 at 3:41 am

It seems earlier and earlier each year the towns Christmas decorations are up and the shops filled with gift ideas, but why wait? Getting your Christmas shopping done early can help you enjoy the festive season without the stress of last minute shopping and the chance of items being sold out.

As the children are set to go back to school in the next couple of weeks, this is the best time to get a few jobs done while they are out of the house.

September is a great month to start your shopping, and it allows you to spread your budget over a few months rather than spend it all at once in December. The best way to budget is by creating a gift list and of course sticking with it.

Many gift bundles go up in price during the festive period as retailers know shoppers will pay more to get a particular item, that’s why buying early can also save you a few pounds too.
