As the summer leaves and the autumn arrives, for many of us this is a time to start planning and preparing for Christmas. Starting to prepare for Christmas early is a good way to not only reduce the stress of preparing but is also a good way to spread the costs of things like Christmas presents.

If you are wanting to get ahead and plan early so that you can enjoy the festive season, here are some of the things to start doing this month…

Buying Gifts – Christmas gifts are always something that can cost a lot, especially if you leave it until December! You also run the risk of things selling out if you leave it until then. If you know what you want to get people, start with that, and get things like this mens aran sweater as well as toys and games early.

Planning Activities – If you want to make the most of the festive season have a look for the Christmas activities that are around, from meeting with Father Christmas to Forest light shows at places like Westonbirt arboretum. Tickets for these sorts of events often sell out quickly and planning the times and days that you want to go now is a good way to prepare and have something to look forward to.

Planning the Food – The Christmas feast doesn’t need to cost a fortune – by buying things early that can be stored, you can make it something that is spectacular, yet doesn’t break the bank. Christmas puddings, mince pies and sauces can all be bought well in advance and stored for Christmas.
