How to get the best deal on Christmas gifts
As the old adage goes, the early bird has the best chance of landing a half-price worm. And while we don’t recommend gifting a limbless wriggler to your nearest and dearest, it pays to get your shortlist sorted in advance.
Besides leaving you free for festive fun, it also means you can keep an eye out for pre-Chrimbo offers. With Black Friday deals on the horizon – and December discounts lurking just beyond – there’s every chance of saving some cash on Yuletide treats.
Sales aside, you’ll find a handy deals widget beneath many of our recommendation, signposting the best offers available online. So unless you’re looking exclusively at our list of luxury Christmas gift ideas, you should have all the tools to bag a great price.
