Tip 12 of the 12 (money saving) Tips of Christmas

Today is our final festive (money saving) tip of the season.

We know that for many of us Christmas will be like no other this year. If you’re not going to be able to catch up with loved ones in person during the holiday, or spend time with those who live further afield, or not able to connect with with those less confident in virtual get-togethers, you could give the best gift of all – time.

Who doesn’t love getting something in the post which isn’t a bill or junk mail? An older relative may truly appreciate receiving a card or letter in the post, especially if they are living in a care home and have had no visitors. Or maybe someone in your family has been self-isolating or shielding for a long time and not been able to see others safely outside.

So dust down the old address book, buy yourself a book of Christmas stamps, pick up a pack of cards (even some A4 lined paper will do) and put pen to paper. It might feel a bit strange at first, but you’ll soon get into it….and you might find it therapeutic too.

Last dates for standard postage:

Friday 18th December – 2nd class

Monday 21st December – 1st class

We hope you’ve enjoyed this series and if you have money saving tips you’d like to share with us, or ideas for future campaigns we can run and how we can improve our advice for students, we want to hear from you. Please contact Student Advice – we’re all ears!

Wishing you all a merry and safe Christmas and much joy for 2021.
