Streets are covered in snow, cold wind blows, windows glow … Tis the season HOHOHO.
December is back with all its joys, yet there is only so much chocolate, Merlot, expensive gifts, fancy dinners and costly flights one bank account can handle. This year, set new traditions, save some money, and spread Christmas spirit while encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit.
To start with, Christmas is all about festivities, and when it comes to extravagant decorations and elaborated menus, most of us wouldn’t give it attention more than deserved, we would be too busy making story worthy memories. Therefore, instead of turning to galleries and five-courses meals, why not give your local start-ups or SMEs a chance? They always find the most creative and sustainable means to celebrate special occasions and Christmas is no exception!
And because saving money isn’t just about how much you spend, but also how you spend it, don’t forget to surf crowdfunding sites for out of the box gifts ideas. Designer accessories and video games are quite expected to find their place under the tree. Don’t you wish to wow your family and friends with unique presents?
And if you’re not exchanging gifts this year, it’s ok, as long as, you are surrounded by your loved ones, this is all that matters!
