LEFT it a tad late to do your Christmas shopping?
One in five of us often leaves it all to the day before. If that’s you, do not stress, I’m here to help . . .
CHOCS AWAY: You cannot go wrong with chocolates and Tesco currently has some great offers for those looking to snap up last- minute gifts. I love the pretty 24-choc boxes of Ferrero Raffaello, currently £4.50 with a Clubcard rather than £6.
If your recipient prefers milk chocolate, Galaxy Milk Chocolate Truffles are a right treat and just £5 when you use your Clubcard — reduced from the usual £7.
SAVING: up to £2
YOU BEAUTY: If you fancy giving a pampering pressie, head to Sainsbury’s where the Sanctuary Spa Little Luxuries gift set is just £6.50, down from £8.
It also has great grooming sets, such as the Nivea Men Sensitive Shave Duo gift set, £6.50, down from £9.50.
SAVING: up to £3
CHRISTMAS CHEERS: Fizz always adds sparkle at this time of year. A bottle of Moet & Chandon Imperial Brut is currently £29 at Tesco, down from £36. Or nab it for just £28 at Morrisons.
HAPPY HAMPERS: If you need a big gift or something to treat a whole family, the Christmas Feast Hamper at Aldi is full of festive favourites — including pigs in blankets, crisps, stollen bites, Marc de Champagne truffles, luxury iced fruit cake and plenty of wine.
The goodies come in a handy wicker hamper, complete with ribbon. It costs £79.99 and is perfect as a big gesture of glad tidings. There are two other hampers, — for £59.99 and £29.99 — if you want something smaller and cheaper.
