Buying the perfect present

We all want to feel as though we’re purchasing something that the giftee will absolutely adore and appreciate. Because, we’ve all been there when, on Christmas Day, we’ve unwrapped that present to find someone subpar. You probably already know this, but here are some quick pointers in case you need them on how to choose your Christmas presents:

All this should help give you a clearer idea of what to buy and what is available for you to buy.


How to save money on your Christmas shopping

It’s undeniable that Christmas is that one big blow-out period that happens every year. From Christmas lunches to Christmas presents, it’s going to do something to your wallet. But it doesn’t have to. You CAN save on your Christmas shop and still make it to New Years with more than enough to spend on a bottle of bubbly. Here’s how:

      • Use coupon codes and deals: Just because it’s Christmas doesn’t mean there aren’t specials and discounts to be had. From December specials to Boxing Day sales, you can save even more on your shop using finder.com.au’s exclusive deals and coupons. Bookmark this page so that you don’t miss out.
      • Shop around: It might be one of those bits of advice that you hear all the time, but it really is true. It’s a competitive market out there and many retailers stock the same items at varying prices. Browse our categories and compare a couple of stores. You never know what bargain you may discover.
      • Buy in bulk: Loads of retailers offer free shipping for purchases over a certain amount. If there’s a shop with heaps of gifts you find ideal for your friends and family, buy up and save on delivery. Too easy.

Last-minute Christmas presents

Even if you’ve enlisted our help a little late, it’s not the end of the world. It’s true, you DON’T have to give them money or gift cards if you’ve discovered it’s days before Christmas and you still haven’t found something. There’s always a present that you can get asap. Check out our last minute Christmas gifts guide if you don’t believe us.

Finally, MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone! No matter what you get, we’re sure it’ll be great. (So long as you use our guide to get it... )
