    Everyone going to start prepping for Christmas really soon.
    Just wanted to ask everyone to buy Christmas cards and wrapping paper from charity shops. they do sell brand new stuff. You'll be donating to a great cause as well as getting what you need. Take your pick, all donations count!

    I buy mine at the same time I'm doing my food shop, and some supermarkets donate a portion of money they make from cards (e.g. Tesco) to charity so I'm happy to keep on doing that.

    When it comes to Christmas i tend to outsource my wrapping and cards to my mother so bar a special card or two there's no real cost for me.

    A stable growth outlook in Rakas land means that this years budget will average £10 per person for gifts.
