Five top tips to get ahead this Christmas
Want to get ahead with your menu planning this Christmas? Spreading your shopping out between now and the start of the festive season is key to making sure you’ve got all the treats and gifts you need.
From longer life products to put away for later to ordering in advance so you get deliveries exactly when you want them, Fitzbillies has got lots of ideas to help make your Christmas prep as easy as possible.
Here are our top five tips to take the stress out of Christmas food and gift shopping (and avoid a last-minute dash to the supermarket!).1. Buy long life products to stash away
Buying little and often between now and Christmas could mean you can avoid that stressful big supermarket shop. From coffee and cake to Christmas pudding and Christmas cake, stocking your cupboards with a mix of essentials and indulgences with a longer shelf life can help you plan and budget better.
2. Order now, deliver later
Why not order in advance? At Fitzbillies, you can order shorter shelf life products for a date in the future, so you can be sure you’ll have your favourite treats delivered and gifts and hampers purchased for delivery when you need them.
3. Bank your spending money with gift cards
If you struggle to save for Christmas but want to set some money aside for little luxuries, gift vouchers are a great way to lock your spending money away. Buy a Fitzbillies gift voucher for yourself to spend on festive essentials later, or buy one as a gift for the person who has everything. That way you know the money’s allocated and you won’t spend it on something else.
4. Make a gift list
From Secret Santa gifts for colleagues to show-stopping gifts for someone special, it’s easy to find ideas with Fitzbillies. With prices starting at £10 for a tote bag or £20 for a box of festive macarons, to luxury Champagne hampers, you can find gifts for every taste and budget to buy now and put away for later, or order in advance for delivery nearer the big day.
5. Plan festive meals in advance
With so many occasions to plan for, it’s easy to miss something essential off your shopping list. Why not make shopping simpler by ordering boxes to cover off each event, from festive treats for the kids’ Christmas Eve boxes, a bake-at-home Chelsea bun Christmas tree to tuck into while you’re opening presents, or even a Christmas day hamper to really treat your guests.Ready to get started?
