Sssh... Just because Christmas is now only a fleeting two months away doesn't mean you're allowed to be loud, proud and full blown full of the holiday spirit even if you pre-maturely are. All that being said, we wouldn't be My Favourite Voucher Codes if we didn't provide you with savvy money saving advice – this time, of the Christmas gifts shopping variety.
The trick to surviving the mammoth amount of presents and food you have to buy this time of year? Stagger your purchases and spread costs. It's worth starting your Christmas shopping early to ensure there are enough pay days to see you through the copious presents, decorations, food and drink that will quickly drain your bank account. Thankfully Debenhams has got all of our backs and is currently hosting a fantastic 3 for 2 offer across hundreds of amazing gifts.
We've given you the guide to universal gifting. Now we're going to provide you with our top picks and advice when it comes to waging the war of Christmas shoppers and finding great deals for even greater Christmas gifts.
The Novelty Christmas Gifts
If there's one time of year where you can buy something a little bit cheap but also pure genius, it's Christmas time. Great for stocking fillers, the novelty gift is ideal entertainment for the morning between vegetable prep and waiting for family to arrive. From crafty kits to quirky gadgets, there's plenty of fantastic novelty gifts out there that are sure to be a hit on the 25th December. Bringing together some of the best options, Debenhams' 3 for 2 Christmas gifts deal has a great selection across beauty, homeware, toys and, of course, novelty gifts. Using our great Debenhams voucher codes can get you even more discounts on your Christmas gifts.
Give the gift of the night sky. No, really. With this kit brought to you by the Science Museum, piece together a fantastic lamp which, when switched on, projects constellations on your ceiling and walls. Educational and a little bit special, this one could be a hit with just about anyone, from your space obsessed child to a romantic alternative to star gazing with your partner. Just £12, the Star Lamp Projector Making Kit is a part of the 3 for 2 deal.
For the beauty guru you know, allow them to cut costs for their next manicure and provide them with the amazing Beauty Box UV LED Nail Dryer. Whether they want to do gel nails or simply dry normal nail polishes, they can do it all with this and ensure everyone's nails are on fleek this holiday. Also £12, buy in the amazing Debenhams bundle deal.
Christmas Gifts That Really Do Keep on Giving
Board games really are a family highlight for the festive season. Unwrap and get down to business after all the food has been consumed and presents given and received. Also great for a lazy boxing day activity, Christmas really is the time to gather around and play a game or two together. Even if you're not the kind of family who plays board games a lot, there's just something that gets everyone in the mood come December.
A game that will have everyone looking a bit odd but mostly hilarious, we think the Cosy Friends Unicorn Hoopla game will have you and your family in stitches. Attach your head bands and try and catch hoops on your unicorn horn. Or, if you're feeling even more competitive, get serious with a game of Trivial Pursuit. Available for Harry Potter fans or those who've watched re-runs of Friends every day of their life, there are a number of Trivial Pursuit editions out there to test your knowledge. Just avoid falling out this time of year if you're a bit of a sore loser.
Is it Christmas Without Socks?
The short answer is, no. Whilst socks may have been a bit of a lacklustre gift as children, as adults Christmas doesn't exist if we don't get a pair of socks or two. In fact, we're kind of relying on that one family member to deliver, because this is the one year we actually refresh our sock drawer and get rid of those questionable pairs that probably have one too many holes in. Don't lie, you know it's true.
Go above and beyond with tasteful Christmas gift sets that includes socks and then some! A touch of luxury, we're all about these chunky knit grey socks complete with a delightfully cassis scented candle for £15. For men, you can get away with some comical pairs. Christmas puds, candy canes and snowmen, these cotton men's socks come in a cute festive gift box and are just £10. Just make sure they don't accidentally wear them all year round.
Controversial Gifting: The Smellies
If you're going to buy someone a gift set of smellies, whether for the bath or the shower or, really, any kind of beauty set... Ensure you're actually making the right decision. Whilst it might seem like a great gift to you, as Christmas gifts go smellies can come across as quite a generic present. If you know your recipient does enjoy taking bubble baths or trying out new scents, tailor that to them. Buy sets in their favourite smells or the types of products they like to try out and use.
If they're Disney mad, why not this cute AristoCats bath milk? Stored in an adorable carton, enjoy the moisturising qualities when pouring this into your tub. Or you can also buy Marie's set of 3 bath fizzers in delightful scents of peony and cherry blossom. Marie would agree this is a purrfect gift.
For the beardy man in your life, the Bulldog Beard Care Kit includes beard oil, shampoo and conditioner and a comb to get that beard looking its absolute best. Especially around the holiday season, you'll be wanting to scrub up well, so we think he'll take the hint with this great gift set, just £15.
With hundreds of lines included in the 3 for 2 Christmas gifts deal at Debenhams, there's lots of choice to fit your recipient's interests. So why not take a look and tick off a few on your shopping list?
Time is flying by and before you know it Christmas will be here! Don't let time pass you by as you begrudgingly avoid getting into the festive spirit. Spread costs and start your shopping now. It goes without saying you'll also avoid that last minute panic, too!
