Our Guide to saving money (and time!) this Christmas [AD]

O2 has recently put together a wishlist of top Christmas gifting tips (ranging from savings to best times to buy); and I thought I’d add to this by adding my best Christmas gift ideas, planning, and saving recommendations based on our own past experiences.  In 2019, the average UK adult spent £1,116 on Christmas presents.
