'Buy Your Christmas Toys Early This Year' Was Just On The TV News

Ask a Question

They have been advising people to buy their Christmas toys early this year, will you be bothering to do that yourself, not everybody is going to be able to afford to do that at the moment though are they!

I've started buying presents, going to start wrapping next week. I buy slowly, looking for good deals along the way. I have some Amazon and love 2 shop vouchers but will still have to buy some close to time but not so close as to pay extra p&p

Well done you Moonstone22 I'm wondering what state the shops will be in nearer the time food wise, you can buy in advance to freeze it but you can't freeze all Christmas food that's the trouble! 😟 x

JoTarpley That's exactly what I was thinking, I think it will be difficult to find things in a few weeks. Freezing food early is a good idea. I read on a newspaper that they are on low supply of turkey, stuffing and other Christmas side dishes this year which is worrying. It will be terrible after this year that people will be unable to find food for their Christmas dinners

Moonstone22 OMG it's all rather doom and gloom isn't it, plus the wet weather and dark nights, you need to be strong in the head to cope with all this! Keep smiling! 😁 x

I'm done shopping for this year. Got it all done early. My heart goes to those people who have lost their jobs to the pandemic and won't be able to stretch as far as gifts. Maybe Christmas this year will take the focus off stuff and put it back onto people.

I've already got all my sons Christmas presents sorted. I won an ELC voucher so I used it to buy his toys and put them away in the cupboard.

I save up my amazon vouchers from doing surveys and use them to get Christmas presents too.

I never go overboard on Christmas anyway and I try to spread the cost of it over the year anyway. I feel sorry for people that have lost their jobs and won't be able to afford presents etc this year.

we have started Christmas shopping and am generally adding one or two items a shop specifically for Christmas, and have the main wine shop coming this weekend taking advantage of Tesco 25% of 6 bottles. The only trouble is how much of it will actually last until Christmas. as for toys (well computer games) I have a list set up and will be watching prices - as soon as I see a fair deal then they will be purchased. I am a lot more organised this year!
