Are you flapping around like a blue arsed fly trying to get everything done in time for the 25th?
Don’t forget a few spare gifts for unexpected visitors and to give the car a once over before travelling long distances.
We’re sweating up a storm around these parts and the kids are in crazy school holiday mode playing hairdressers and doctors.
I’m not going to check on them, my youngest needs a mop chop any way and at least they’re not hovering around me telling me they are BORED!
With just a few pressies left to buy I’m sorted but if you’re stuck or about to buy someone sock, jocks or chocs… STOP!
Here’s a few different ideas taken from the Shop A Docket online site, and for those still keeping supermarket receipts, all coupons are now online.
Top 10 gift ideas and ways to save money this silly season.
1. If you’re booking your next holiday through Webjet you can save $50 off your accommodation bill.
2. Chill out at the Ice Bar Melbourne and find out what it’s like to be an Eskimo with a buy one get one free deal? Free drink included.
3. Want to print out photos to send in your Xmas cards but your magenta or cyan has run out? There’s a coupon for 15 per cent off ink and toner cartridges.
4. Stuck with what to buy your teen? There’s a Shop A Docket that offers a free driving lesson.
5. Sweeten up the in-laws with surprise case of wine delivered to their door.
6. For those on the Gold Coast snaffle down a yummy buffet breakfast at Sea World Resort – buy one get one half price with kids between 4 to 13 just $1.
7. Give someone a voucher to go bowling, catch a movie or play golf.
8. If you’re sick of the theme parks make your way to the picturesque Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary where adults pay kids prices.
9. This is what I would LOVE to get, a gift voucher for a beauty spa, there’s coupons for up to 30 per cent off treatments online.
10. Rainy days, late nights or when you need the kids to chill out, save heaps on DVD rentals. Don’t be a pirate!
There are so many other great meal deals and other ways to save money at Shop A Docket, if you can’t tell I’m a little bit of a fan of coupons.
Anyhoe the kids have stopped playing and are now sweating all over me – UGH.
I’m trying really hard not to turn on the AC but it’s so hard. Might just chuck everyone in the pool! Keep cool ’til after school yo’ll.
