Christmas is a season of joy, but it can also strain your wallet. At Fundo, we understand the importance of a worry-free festive season. A Christmas loan with Fundo is tailored to meet your needs.

So, with Christmas right around the corner, you might be wondering how you’ll manage the extra expenses during this festive time, at Fundo, we’re here to ensure your celebrations are merry and bright without the financial stress. Take a look at these savvy tips to save some money in the final days leading up to Christmas.


DIY Gifts for a Personal Touch

Instead of buying expensive gifts, consider crafting something heartfelt. Handmade gifts often hold more sentimental value and can save you a significant amount of money. Whether it’s homemade cookies, personalised cards, or crafted ornaments, the effort and thoughtfulness behind DIY gifts make them special to the right person.

Shop Around for the Best Deals

This is an oldie but a goodie! Don’t settle for the first price you see. Take the time to compare prices online and in stores. Look out for holiday sales, discounts, and special offers. You might be surprised by the price variations for the same item across different retailers, and even more surprised to see that some retailers will price match! Use this to your advantage and save a few bucks on each purchase but shopping around or price matching to save visiting multiple stores

Stick to a Budget and Make a List

One of the simplest yet most effective money-saving tips for Christmas is setting a budget and sticking to it. Make a list of everyone you want to buy gifts for and allocate a specific amount for each person. This will help you avoid overspending and keep your finances in check. You’ll know exactly what you have to spend, and if you track the costs as you go, shop around and price match, you may even come in under budget


Not sure what to buy? Digital gift certificates are great!

If you’re running out of time for physical gifts, or even running out of ideas, consider digital gift certificates or subscriptions for online services. Purchase and send them instantly via email or print them off at home. Whether it’s a subscription to a streaming service, an e-book platform, or a shopping gift card, these are convenient last-minute gifts and can allow the receiver to choose their own gift or benefit from a service or subscription you think might interest them.


Flash Sales and Local Markets

Keep an eye out for last-minute flash sales or local markets offering discounted holiday items. This way you might be able to pick up some wonderful handmade jewellery or brand new toys. Many stores might be offering clearance sales to clear out Christmas stock which can help with some cheap festive decorations.
Explore these options for affordable decorations, gifts, and even groceries for your holiday meals.


Don’t go all out on the decorations

Don’t stress about elaborate decorations; instead, opt for quick and budget-friendly DIY decor ideas. Create paper snowflakes with the little ones, re-use as much as you can from previous years, or repurpose household items with a festive touch. This not only saves money but also adds a personal, homemade charm to your space.


It’s not too late to ask for help with Christmas Lunch or Dinner!

Hosting a Christmas gathering can be costly. Consider asking a guest or two if they’d be interested in bringing a special dish – many holiday friendly dishes can be made ahead which will allow more time for joy on Christmas Day. This not only reduces your expenses but also adds variety to the menu, and can even introduce new family favourites, or bring back old ones!


Regift with Thoughtfulness

Consider regifting items you received but haven’t used. Ensure the item is in good condition and appropriate for the recipient. Add a personal touch by wrapping it creatively, making it a thoughtful gesture rather than just passing something along. If this isn’t for you, consider donating these items to a Christmas gift appeal to support those less fortunate.
