9 Christmas Gift Exchange Ideas to Trim Your Holiday Spending

NEW YORK, 2016-Dec-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — Here are a few alternative Christmas gift exchange ideas from Coupons.com savings and consumer trends expert Jeanette Pavini for you to create a fun experience while keeping your holiday spending in check. You can find even more ways to save on our Coupon Codes page and more savvy ideas on The Good Stuff!

  1. Pick a secret Santa. This game is a classic, but by only giving one gift to a family member, you can focus more on the gift-giving experience (and picking out something extra special) rather than spending money on several gifts that may or may not hit the mark. You can even up the ante by asking family members to leave secret notes and treats for the person whose name they’ve drawn leading up to December 25. Be sure to put a dollar limit on how much each person can spend on the final gift given on the holiday!
  1. Make a coupon book for family members. I love this idea because it’s personalized and can be a lot of fun depending on how creative you get! These coupons can be for “Making Your Bed for a Week,” “Doing the Dishes for 1 Week,” or “Letting You Pick the TV Show We Watch.” Choose simple things that can make other family member’s life a little easier or a little more fun!
  1. Set gift expectations early. It’s important to set gift expectation for kids early on. Let them know that even if they have a long wish list, only a few presents will show up under the tree. You can make this into a learning exercise by having your children prioritize which gifts they really want. Have them rate each gift idea by putting stickers next to them on the list, coloring in stars, or writing out why they want this particular gift more than others. You can also help your kids choose a couple toys they already have to donate to charity. This kind act makes room for a few new ones while teaching them about giving and sharing with others.
  1. Take a family trip or staycation. Instead of spending money on everyone’s presents, use the money for an outing. It can be as simple as a local trip — you’ll even find some good deals during the week between Christmas and New Year’s while the kids are still on vacation. Even if you just travel to a nearby town or a local park, it’s the act of getting away as a family. Too stressed to plan a family trip? Check out this list of easy family staycation ideas!
  1. Let your kids do the shopping. If they’re old enough, give your kids a set amount of cash, allow them time to search for deals and coupons, and then let them shop away for gifts for family.  The cash will help them learn the value of every dollar and how to stay within a set budget, plus most kids love the thrill of shopping on their own!
  1. Give back as a family. You can sponsor a family in need by making a donation through Heifer International. As a family you can provide a gift of a cow, goat, or chickens to a struggling family from another part of the world. You may also be able to sponsor a local family through your local Salvation ArmyFamilies First, or even adopt a military family for the holidays through Soldiers’ Angels. It’s a wonderful way to feel the real meaning of the holidays and do something as a family!
  1. Trade favorite recipes. For extended family, have everyone make their favorite dish or dessert and attach hand-written recipe cards — one for every member of the family. Gather together for a family meal and swap recipe cards so everyone in the family can build their own family recipe book!
  1. Share a family photo collage. Photos are one of the least expensive and most treasured gifts, in my opinion, so why not build a family photo album together? Have each member of your family print up to 10 (or more if you like!) of their favorite photos from that year for each person in your family. (That would be six copies of each photo if you’re a family of six.) Then, share your memories while enjoying time together. You can also have each family member bring an empty photo album with them to fill with the photos they receive so they can look back on their wonderful holiday experience next year.
  1. Create a family gratitude journal. Grab a beautiful journal or inexpensive notebook and set it in a public place where every member of the family has access to it. Starting on January 1 or even as early as December 1, each person will write one thing they’re thankful for in the journal each day. In 2018, you can all look back on your thankful messages together!

Petrol Price Hike Presents High Street Christmas Shoppers with £78 Million Bill – Before They Have Even Hit the Shops

Soaring fuel prices are forcing more consumers to shop on their computers rather than on the high street this Christmas, according to independent price comparison and switching service, uSwitch.com. A 15% rise in petrol prices since last November has pushed the bill for driving to the shops and parking the car up to a staggering £78 million – and that’s before any presents have been bought. As a result, despite the postal strikes that were widely predicted to drive consumers back onto the high street, research amongst uSwitch.com’s consumer panel reveals that over 7 out of 10 (72%) people are doing their Christmas shopping online this year.

The price of petrol, which has climbed from 95p to 109p per litre over the last 12 months has done nothing to help consumers struggling through a tough year. While pressure remains on oil companies to lower prices, the situation is not set to improve imminently. The AA has warned that end of the VAT cut will add an estimated 2.4p per litre to pump prices from January. As a result, shoppers heading onto the high street this Christmas could face fuel bills of up to £8million.

However, it is the cost of car parking that is really set to send shoppers in a spin this Christmas. With the average trip costing £9 in parking fees, consumers will be spending a staggering £70 million parking their cars to go Christmas shopping this year – nearly 10 times the cost of the fuel they use for their round trip. Of the UK’s top ten largest cities it comes as no surprise that Londoners are stung the most, paying an average of £18 for up to four hours parking, while shoppers in Bradford are charged a fifth of the price – a meagre £3.50.

In total, uSwitch.com estimates that Christmas shoppers are set to spend £78 million driving to the shops this Christmas– a bill that could be cut by staying at home and buying gifts on the internet. According to research amongst uSwitch.com’s consumer opinion panel, the recession has given rise to a new generation of online shoppers. And, contrary to speculation that postal strikes and high street discounts are preventing people from logging on, 1 in 5 (19%) consumers say they have increased the amount of web-based purchases made since the downturn began. A further quarter (26%) are planning to increase the amount of purchases they make via the web this Christmas and 6 out of 10 (59%) believe there are better bargains to be had online than on the high street.

According to the research, internet shopping has varied appeal. 75% appreciate the ease and convenience of surf-shopping compared with trudging the high street, whilst 44% cite the ability to purchase specialist items that aren’t available anywhere else as the web’s main plus point. In addition, nearly three quarters of consumers (72%) state that they find it easier to stick to a budget when shopping online – as they are more aware of the mounting totals and are less likely to succumb to the temptation of browsing. Books are the most popular items purchased on the web – hardly surprising considering the top ten bestselling paperbacks are currently offered online with a 55% discount on the recommended retail price.

Online retailers have seen a 14% growth in year on year sales with UK consumers spending an estimated £31 billion online between January and August. Amazon ranked as the number one online retailer last Christmas, and with new initiatives such as free delivery on almost all orders, looks set to hit the 36% sales growth forecast for Q4 this year.

London and Northern Ireland lead the way when it comes to online bargain hunting, spending an average of 1.48 hours shopping online every week. This is closely followed by Wales (1.46 hours), the South West (1.43), and Scotland (1.41 hours). Web users in the North East are the least frequent online shoppers, spending just 1.23 hours a week browsing for bargains.

Ann Robinson, Director of Consumer Policy at uSwitch.com, says: “Consumers are fighting an ongoing battle to make their money go further. This year they have had no choice but to take a hard look at their spending and adapt their lifestyles to cope.

“Christmas shoppers heading onto the high streets are being stung not once but twice, with high prices at the pump and astronomical car park fees. It’s no wonder that many are ditching the high street and choosing to shop from the comfort of their own home. Nearly 17 million homes now have broadband – a massive jump from 7 million just three years ago – and it’s getting cheaper and faster to use. With broadband as cheap as £5.99 a month it’s easy to see why we as consumers have wholeheartedly embraced online shopping.”

British Site Which Saved Consumers $87m Throughout The Recession Officially Launches In The US

Former Gordon Ramsay protégé Mark Pearson is the founder of CouponCodes4U.com, a discount coupon site that has officially launched today and is aiming to save Americans millions of dollars. Mark Pearson worked as a sous chef under celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay at the prestigious Claridges restaurant in London. MyVoucherCodes is officially the UK’s most popular discount voucher code website in the UK.

Discount site CouponCodes4u.com officially launches today, and looks set to follow in the footsteps of UK-based sister website MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, which 15% of Brits use every month to save money on purchases ranging from supermarket shopping to money off on holidays and other one off purchases.

During the recession, MyVoucherCodes was responsible for nearly £1/2bn worth of sales in the UK, the equivalent of $787m. Throughout this period, Brits saved the equivalent of $87m USD, and the company hopes to repeat this sort of success across the Atlantic.

CouponCodes4U already features thousands of discounts and offers from top retailers keen to establish themselves on the site due to Mark’s background, with current deals including $75 off at Dell, 55% off at Amazon, $50 off at Sears, 35% off at Macy’s and many more.

In pre-launch beta testing, the site managed to amass a following of over 300,000 unique users a month, with no formal marketing in place. Over 15,000 retailers are listed on the site, all of which provide discount coupons, which are redeemable at online checkout.

CouponCodes4U.com has over 100,000 coupon codes, deals and discounts live on the site, and regularly generates over $1m in sales every month, all of which point to great success in the long run for the site.

CouponCodes4U is the Stateside birth-child of one of the UK’s leading young entrepreneurs, Mark Pearson. Since the recession, MyVoucherCodes, officially the UK’s leading discount website has saved Brits over $87m in the last year, and Mark hopes to bring his award-winning style to America.

Although there are many discount coupon sites which have popped up since the Credit Crunch, Managing Director Mark Pearson said,

“The discount coupon industry in the States is in desperate need of a shake-up, as too many US websites offer codes that they don’t actually have on the site, or that are already expired.

“Consumers deserve to see the discount coupon codes that retailers are releasing, and deserve to benefit from them too. In the UK, the rules around the discount sector are quite stringent, and I’m looking to bring the same discipline that has made MyVoucherCodes such a success to the US.

Four in Ten SME’S seeing signs of Economic Recovery

 

Greenshoots: 42% of SMEs are seeing some signs of economic recovery – but only 1% say the signs are strong

•Recovery time: 27% of SME owners predict six months to a year for their business to recover f r o m the recession, but 26% say it will take more than a year to get back on their feet again

•Growing confidence: 81% of SMEs think they will survive the recession – a 5% increase since February this year

•Trading conditions: 58% still finding it tough, but a small increase in the number now saying that the current trading environment is OK

•Recession headache: cutting costs remains the biggest issue for SMES, but cashflow concerns now taking over f r o m worries about falling demand.

Over four in ten SME owners (42%) report seeing some signs of economic recovery, with a further 1% saying that these signs are strong, according to new research f r o m uSwitchforBusiness.com.

And while the Government has been forced to acknowledge that Britain is still in a recession that is likely to be longer and deeper than originally feared, the findings reveal a small increase in the number of small businesses confident that they will survive. 81% now think that they will get through the downturn, compared with 76% in the first quarter of this year.

However, small business owners expect the recession to have a long lasting impact. Over a quarter (27%) say that it will take their business between six months and a year to get back to normal again, while 26% say that it will take them more than a year. Incredibly though, 32% say it will only take up to six months to recover with 14% of these saying it will take them no time at all to get back on their feet.

The findings come f r o m the latest uSwitchforBusiness.com SME Confidence Survey, which tracks small business confidence over time and highlights current issues and concerns facing Britain’s small traders. It shows that, despite increased optimism, 58% of small companies are finding trading conditions difficult (59% in Q1). However, there has been a small increase in those saying that current trading conditions are OK (40% compared with 38% in Q1).

Earlier in the year, cutting costs was the biggest issue for SMEs and this remains the case today with 58% of companies actively looking for ways to cut back. Similarly, the number of small companies reporting a drop in demand remains unchanged f r o m Q1 (34%). However, 35% are now experiencing cashflow concerns (up f r o m 33%) making cashflow the second biggest concern facing SME owners today.

In Q1, 19% said that the recession was having no impact on their business at all. Today this has dropped to 14%. Overall though, 62% of SME owners report that the recession has been tough, but manageable. Only 18% say that it has been very damaging to their business.

Looking forward to 2010, and with many clearly believing that there is light at the end of the tunnel, SMEs say that their biggest challenges will be increasing sales/turnover (39%), getting over the recession (19%), dealing with regulation and red tape (15%) and overcoming issues with late payments and cashflow (12%).

Jake Ridge, small business expert at www.uswitchforbusiness.com, says: “Despite having the odds stacked against them, Britain’s SMEs have battled to stay afloat and to survive the recession. It has meant making tough decisions and inevitably most small businesses have felt some pain, whether having to lay off staff, find ways to cut costs or learning to combat cashflow concerns. In the first quarter of 2009, 59% were looking for ways to cut costs and this strategy seems to have paid off as most small businesses are now feeling confident about surviving this downturn.

“Small business owners are not feeling complacent though – 43% can see signs of recovery but they know they are not out of the woods yet. They are continuing to keep a tight lid on costs and know that the next challenge comes at the end of the recession when they begin the task of building their businesses back up again.

“In this climate, shopping around for your next energy contract makes sense as no business can afford to be paying more for their energy than competitors. Once they are paying the lowest possible price for the energy they use, businesses can then focus on using less of it – these two simple steps will help them reduce costs substantially and will be a good habit to get into for the challenging times ahead.”

uSwitchforBusiness can save your business money by helping you make smarter decisions about your business electricity, communications and insurance.

Two-Hour Delivery Time Slot Avoids Need To Waste A Whole Day Waiting In

The customer comes first! The Co-operative Electrical gives its buyers the chance to choose which day they would like their appliance to be delivered on. This completely removes the hassle of waiting around for “approximate delivery days”.

This allows customers to work around their appointed delivery date, and helps make The Co-operative Electrical’s whole delivery service more efficient – because if a customer is expecting a delivery, staff don’t need to spend time confirming dates and times.

And The Co-operative Electrical even saves its customers’ time and energy once their delivery has arrived, as the delivery staff place the item into whichever room it is required, so that it is ready to be connected.

Then, to complete the job, they’ll even ‘do the green bit’ by taking away and recycling the customer’s packaging.

The Co-operative Electrical succeeds in delivering 98% of all orders within just two days of them being placed. Better still, this enhanced service is completely free. But it is now even better…

It’s a real bind having to wait in at home – even taking valuable time off work – to be there to take a delivery of say a new television or washing machine.

It works like this: a customer goes online to http://www.coopelectricalshop.co.uk, and chooses a product showing the ‘FREE Rapid Delivery’ icon. All the major kitchen appliances listed with Free Rapid Delivery are available from stock, so the customer chooses their delivery date and is then notified by either text message and/or email of the scheduled two-hour ‘window’ for their delivery. The email and text are usually sent by the time the customer gets home from work on the day before their scheduled delivery, giving them time to organise themselves and make any necessary arrangements.

New Research Reveals That 31 Million (73%) Shoppers Are Taking Matters Into Their Own Hands By Opting For Supermarket Own Brand Labels In Order to Save Money

As food price increases start to slow down, it’s not just the supermarkets that are busy battling the pricing war. New research from uSwitch.com reveals that 31 million (73%) shoppers are taking matters into their own hands by opting for supermarket own brand labels in a bid to save money on the weekly shop. This figure has tripled since August 2008 when just a quarter (25%) of shoppers were ditching premium labels to lighten the financial load of the weekly trolley dash.

Much of this increase can be attributed to supermarkets expanding their own brand products in a bid to stop consumers switching to cheaper chains. This includes the launch of the Waitrose ‘Essentials’ own label range, Tesco’s ‘Discounter’ range and Sainsbury’s ‘switch and save campaign’ which calculates own brand savings. Not only has this activity secured repeat visits from existing customers, according to the recent TNS Worldpanel report it has also slowed the rapid growth of overseas competitors such as Aldi, Iceland and Lidl over the past few months.

Overall, this research has revealed that nine out of ten (90%) UK adults now use recession-busting shopping strategies when they do the weekly shop. Money off vouchers have also reached the top of the shopping list with the number of frugal consumers’ regularly using these has also shot up to 74%, compared with 26% last year. In addition, a fifth of shoppers (20%) now compare prices online before taking a trip down the aisles, this has more than tripled from just 6% in August 2008.

When it comes to shopping online 6.4 million consumers now claim to avoid the hustle bustle of their local supermarket by carrying out their weekly food shop online. Again, this has tripled from just 5% of consumers in August 2008. In fact, this is becoming so popular with consumers, industry commentators predict that the value of online food sales could hit £8 billion by 2011.

These recessionary cut backs could also have positive lifestyle implications for many savvy shoppers as they revert to the good life. Almost a fifth of consumers have now taken to growing their own fruit and vegetables, up from just 8% in August 2008. This has created a waiting list for allotments across the country amongst those who do not have the option at home. Just this week, Tesco has applied for planning permission to create allotments for rent at its Dobbies Garden Centre – they also plan to sell allotment starter kits.

As a result of ‘pinching the pennies’ becoming very much the new ‘splashing the cash’, figures suggest supermarkets may turn out to be one of the few winners in the recession. For example, Morrisons has just surprised the market with an unscheduled trading update indicating full year profits would be £70 million ahead of expectations. Share prices in Sainsbury’s and Tesco have also experienced a rise.

Rumina Hassam, personal finance expert at uSwitch.com, says: “In the face of uncertain economic forecasts, continued volatility in the housing market, and worrying increases in national unemployment, Brits are making savvy cutbacks to their fundamental spending routine to beat the recession at its own game.

“The number of Brits making basic changes to their weekly food shopping patterns has increased dramatically since last year, as the effects of the recession continue to amplify. However, despite the economic outlook remaining uncertain, consumers may find they have the last laugh – as the lessons learnt from the schooling in savviness they are currently experiencing as a result of the recession will remain vital, even long after the economy recovers.”

The Carphone Warehouse Launches Phone Trade-In Service

The Carphone Warehouse has announced the launch of its exclusive ‘Trade-In Calculator’ service which allows customers to exchange their old mobile phones for cash when either upgrading to a new handset, buying a new pay as you go handset, or taking out a new contract.

For the first time, customers will be able to instantly find out the true value of their old mobile phones and receive cash in-store at one of over 800 stores nationwide. The model of the old mobile is simply inputted into the ‘Trade-In Calculator’ operated by sales advisors, which instantly generates an exchangeable figure of up to £200, dependent on the model of the phone. This amount can then be directly redeemed by customers, or offset against the cost of the upgraded handset and contract. The mobile phone trade in service is also available online through The Carphone Warehouse site.

Being the first major high street retailer to offer such a scheme, The Carphone Warehouse can reveal that two million people in the UK are due a mobile phone upgrade, but are yet to take full advantage of receiving a new phone. Consequently, an astonishing £10,000,000 of potential cash is going unclaimed by customers – money that could make a noticeable difference to the bank balance amidst the current financial climate.

Utilising the ‘Trade-In Calculator’ takes the guesswork out of revealing how much an old handset could be worth. The service works by checking the value of every handset to make sure customers get as much as possible for their old phone. For instance, a high-end handset such as the Nokia Arte would equate to a huge £200 cashback, while more popular handsets from last year such as the Nokia N95 or Sony Ericsson K850i would still generate customers a valuable £115 and £45 respectively.

Andrew Harrison, UK CEO at The Carphone Warehouse said; “Customers are increasingly looking for the best deal when upgrading their mobile phone contract. It’s easy to forget the value of your old phone and many end up in drawers gathering dust. Our ‘Trade-In Calculator’ takes the guesswork out of the true value when trade in your old phone and gives an instant cash ‘thank you’ to loyal and new customers.”

The Carphone Warehouse is the largest independent mobile phone retailer in the UK, with over 820 stores nationwide.

The price reduction will be given on standard rated product and will be applied on, or as soon after Monday December 1 as possible.

The statement added that this would, “allow for the complexities of implementing the changes required.”

It is unclear how the price cuts will be implemented, however many retailers are expected to take off the discount at the till point rather than by re-ticketing stock.

The 10 year anniversary of the Tesco Baby & Toddler Clubis marked by the launch of a new online service

For the last 10 years, the phenomenally successful Tesco Baby & Toddler Club has helped over 1m parents throughout the UK by providing them with support at just the time they need it most. Now, to mark its 10th birthday, the Club has launched a compelling new set of member benefits and a fantastic new website.

Celebrating a new arrival – Baby & Toddler Club online in keeping with the Tesco ‘Every Little Helps’ philosophy, and in direct response to the 98% of Baby & Toddler Club members who asked Tesco for support through an online service.

“Our members told us that while they really valued the information we gave them through the Club magazines, they wanted an online offering as well. This allows us to provide support when parents need it most – even if that is at 3am with a screaming baby“, says Jenna Copeland, Tesco Baby & Toddler Club Manager.

“Our new website means that mums can instantly access the information they need and, if they need further reassurance, can contact other mums in our Chat Room. This new initiative is just part of the commitment is putting behind providing our customers with the very best in online services and we know it is something that will be welcomed not only by our members, but by parents throughout the UK.” Tesco

The Baby & Toddler Club online will offer a wealth of information at parents’ fingertips, as well as being a genuine 24/7 club where mums can make new friends online, share experiences and offer each other support. Other features include:

– ‘You and Your Baby’ – a comprehensive guide to all the ups and downs of pregnancy and the first 3 years of parenthood & childhood.

– Recipes– recipes for pregnant women, babies & toddlers.

There are over 8,000 new products available, with more than 1,000 especially for babies and toddlers.

RAC discount: There’s nothing more important when traveling with a little one than feeling safe in the knowledge that your car is in tip-top condition – but it can be expensive.
