WHILE rising temperatures are confirming that summer is really here, time is flying by and before you know it, Christmas is here.
But with the cost of living crisis affecting households across the country, you probably don’t have money to spare to treat yourself to luxe gifts.
Well, thanks to a savvy money-saving guru named Mandy, you don’t have to.
Instead, she took to TikTok to share three money-saving Christmas gifts to buy now and save for later.
And maybe the best? They are all under £10 from Wilkos.
In the clip, Mandy begins, “So I just stopped by my local Wilkinsons and there are so many bargains to be had at the moment.”
Holding up a glass jar that has been reduced to £8, she continues: “These are reduced to £4, fill them with sweets and that will cost around £3 – and then you’ve got a great Christmas present for around £7. “
Next she shows a close-up of a terracotta vase and says: “These flower pots have been reduced to £4 and if you put a miniature Christmas tree in it it will cost you something – like a fiver, maybe a ten?
“Then you have a nice present.

“Just tie a bow around it – lovely!”
Finally, Mandy moves to a chic glass decanter and mug set that was on sale for £8.
“You could put this in a gift basket with a bottle of wine and you’ve got another perfect £10 Christmas present,” she notes.
“No one cares what you spend on their Christmas present.
“If you do it magically, it doesn’t matter – and that’s what it’s about.”
Mandy captioned the post: “Christmas 2022 you got this!”
It didn’t take long for the comments section to be flooded with praise from social media users, all of whom were grateful to Mandy for sharing her innovative and thoughtful gift ideas.
“Great ideas!” delighted one.
A second praised: “Great ideas! It really is the thought that counts.”
A third wrote: “Thanks!! I love these ideas.”
Meanwhile, a fourth wrote: “Great ideas Mandy..thanks!”
Another commented, “Love the flower pot idea, thanks.”
And another added: “Niiii-iiiice.”
