Christmas on a shoestring

I
do not have a huge family to buy for at Christmas but I do like to give my boys
a nice Christmas. I like them to have a
lovely selection of presents to open on Christmas morning. Their gasps of amazement as their eyes are
drawn to the big pile in front of them. 
The only thing is this year having bought a new house; we have focused
lots of our finances on that renovation project! Even now it’s a long way off finishing. The tricky thing with big present piles is when they suddenly
appear a lot less; the boys might wonder what they have done to upset Santa!

So
I am trying to pad up the present pile with a few bargains using any money
saving codes I can find. It’s amazing
what a difference you can make if you use every discount/promotional code
going. Sites like Net Voucher Codes are ideal as you
can quickly see where you can make some savings and focus your gift buying in
that direction! It’s somewhere you do
need to keep checking back regularly as offers are always changing and some are
quite short lived.

At
the moment there is a very limited offer of 20% off at the Disney Store when
you spend £50 or more (check the exclusions before placing your order). The Disney Store promo
expires on Sunday so if your children love everything Disney then you will have
to stock up quick! 20% is a
considerable saving so I have picked out a few bits I know my boys will love!

The
cute Sulley plush will be popular with Monster Inc fans, £20 currently so you can make a
£4.00 saving at the moment. I always
like to include a soft toy on top of their stocking; it’s become something of a
family tradition and Sulley is adorable, he looks so fluffy!

My
youngest is into action play! He is
very lively and full of beans; he is also becoming a bigger Marvel fan as he
gets older. So for him the Avengers Bow
& Arrows (£15.00 but less with the offer!) would be perfect and I am glad
it only has foam arrows so no one gets hurt…

He
would also like the Captain America shield (£25.00 so only £20) that fires foam
discs, he has the fancy dress outfit already and a shield but just an ordinary
shield not one with this exciting addition! 
It’s living the superhero dream with toys like this.

All
the battling might wear him out in time for bed! I can live in hope.
