We all know that Christmas can be a very expensive time of year, with presents taking up the majority of people's budgets. However, even if you don't have money to spend on brand new, big, expensive gifts, you can still find some lovely gifts for people from places such as charity shops, carboot sales, stores which sell new and used goods such as Cash Generator and 2nd hand selling sites such as Ebay and Etsy. I'm a fan of shopping in charity shops and going to the carboot on a Sunday morning, you can find some incredible bargains and most of the things you can pick up are in fantastic condition, making them great gift choices.
I was recently challenged to take £20 and see what 2nd hand gifts I could pick up for this and under. I accepted the challenge as £20 is actually a lot of money when you're picking up 2nd hand items from these type of shops, there are so many bargains to be had. So lets see how well I did with my £20...
I think I got some amazing bargains out of my £20. By the way, the rest of the £20 went on the postage of the romper. It just goes to show that you can pick up some amazing items 2nd hand and most of the time there's no need to go to any added expense and fork out for new things. Just today Tyler Lee was gifted a bag of 2nd hand toys and you know what, he hasn't stopped playing with them, he's absolutely delighted! Children don't care if something is new or not, they just see the fun in everything - I wish adults were like that too.
Have you picked up any 2nd hand gifts this Christmas?
