With Christmas just over a month away it’s definitely time to start looking for the perfect Christmas gifts. I think I can vouch for almost every student when I say that we definitely aren’t in the best position to be splashing money on presents, so trying to find a small yet special gift for friends and family on a student budget can be a little bit tricky.
This is where online shopping comes in
I’m sure I’m not the only one who can’t stand the Christmas shopper rush in the run up to the big day, and I absolutely HATE waiting in the ridiculously long queues. Thankfully most online shops offer free delivery over a certain amount, so if you’re buying multiple gifts from one shop, be sure to check if they’re available to buy online first and take full advantage of not having to be part of the crazy Christmas crowd! Another bit of advice which I’m sure you’re all very aware of is utilising student discount. 10% off may not sound like much, but if you’ve got a few items to buy it really does make a difference when you pay at checkout.
Whether it’s your housemate you drew from the Secret Santa hat or your Mum who says she never wants anything (but always wants something), I’ve put together a few gift ideas that I’m sure will make their day, and won’t put you too far into your overdraft!
