Summer Bank Holiday vs Christmas Bank Holiday

giftcardpileThis summer bank holiday would be a great time to have a clear out and find all those gift vouchers you haven’t used that you received for your birthday or last Christmas.

I say this because now is the best time to start your Christmas shopping for this year as there are only 4 more pay days until the big day!!

Wow thats only 125 days to go!!

Check the expiry dates on your gift cards or vouchers and take them along to the shops with you at the weekend.

You may even choose to give gift cards or gift vouchers to friends and family for Christmas as presents, but be careful you don’t give them one they actually bought for you, that would be highly embarrassing.

bankholidaybargains

I’ve been hearing about a lot of summer sales in all the big high street shops like Boots and department stores like Debenhams so you could pick up some great bargains and cheap stocking fillers, and because your using gift cards given to you as gifts, all your presents for this year could be absolutely free, now that my friends is a really cool thing.

Whatever you do choose to buy the newly wed couple im sure they will be so happy with your choice, but just getting it unique or persoanlised is a great way for them to remember you and what you bought them.

Gift Voucher Popularity

In recent days Gift Vouchers have became a very popular gift to buy, WHY? may you ask, WELL……. sometimes if you buy a gift for a friend or a family member, 9 times out of 10 they either already have what you have bought them or you buy a gift that sits in a bottom drawer unwanted as they simply didnt like it.

Buying a gift card as a gift means the lucky person can go and buy exactly what they want, and most retailers now allow them to do this both instore and online so no one has an excuse to have gift cards lying around in drawers unused.

81% of consumers now reportedly buy friends and family members gift cards for birthdays, but did you know that you can buy other themed gift cards in most high street and online retailers these days, e.g Christmas Gift Cards, Baby Shower Gift Cards, Wedding Gift Cards and Experience Day Gift Cards.

A really popular online store is buyagift.co.uk where you can go on and buy many different experience gift cards, from a day driving a ferrari to a hot air balloon ride, this site gives you an alternative to the standard gift vouchers.
