We had a lot of fun at this meeting discussing ways to avoid the over-commercialisation of Christmas while still supporting local businesses and having fun making our own decorations, wreaths, gift tags and wrapping paper. Lots of useful ideas emerged, see the below files for notes taken.
Food for Christmas
Cards & Wrapping Paper
Any problems opening them, please do let us know.
Also highly recommended on the night was Money Saving Expert's Xmas manifesto
and the Pre-NUPP -No Useless Presents Pact where you can email friends to agree not to buy for each other, in a really kind way! My favourite is the printable voucher you can use to gift your own time to do something special for someone or help them with decorating etc. These ideas and more can be found in the files above.
