It might sound early but, if you’re living with IVA help and you want to make some savings this Christmas, it’s time to start planning your attack! Turning Christmas into a military operation might not sound like that much fun, but the financial peace of mind and the fun you can have whilst making savings will help you have a happier, money-saving Christmas.
Using IVA help will seriously reduce your budget come Christmas time, and buying everyone presents will probably not be possible. To make Christmas on IVA help merrier it is time to take a more old-fashioned, traditional approach to Christmas, with thoughtful handmade gifts and a little creativity. Here‘s our top Christmas saving tips, to give you a little IVA help in the festive season:
1. Get Crafty
You might not think you have a creative bone in your body but Christmas can bring out the crafty side in everyone! If you’re living with IVA help you can save an awful lot of money by making your own decorations and presents too. A thoughtful handmade present is almost always more treasured than something you picked up from a shop. When you make your own presents you put real love into them, and this is what Christmas should really be about.
Christmas decorations are fun and easy to make too. Even if you are not using IVA help, creating your own Christmas decorations is a really great festive activity that everyone can get involved in. Why not collect nuts, acorns and pinecones, spray them gold or silver and turn them into gorgeous, natural festive candleholders, baubles or table decorations?
Use your talents to your advantage when making presents. If you’re an amazing knitter, make everyone a personalised hat or socks! If baking is your thing, make special cookies or cupcakes for friends and family. IVA help doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the giving and receiving of gifts! If anything, living with IVA help could ensure you bypass all the tacky, commercialised, overspending which Christmas involves these days.
2. Take Advantage of Technology
If you do like to give shiny new things at Christmas then turning to the internet could be the solution while you’re receiving IVA help. You can find many amazing deals online on sites like Groupon and Ebay, helping you to find the perfect gift at half the price.
3. Play Secret Santa
The ridiculous extravagance of the modern Christmas is really not an option when you are living with IVA help. Instead of lavishing armfuls of gifts on every member of the family, play secret Santa. Put all your names in a hat, and have each person pick just one. Not only is secret Santa really fun, it will also mean you only need to buy one gift.
