Make your money go further with these exclusive deals, offers & great value gift sets

‘Tis the season of giving. But while we all want to find a little joy under the Christmas tree this festive period, the cost of living crisis means that this year the thought behind your Christmas gifting, rather than the spend, is more important than ever.

A YouGov report revealed that the biggest cost of Christmas for Brits is usually presents and gifts, with the average Christmas gift spend reaching £388 last year.

If you’re looking for Christmas gift ideas and wondering how much to spend when the cost of keeping your home warm and kitchen cupboards filled is high enough, you’ve come to the right place. With a whole host of money-saving gift sets and deals to be found at Boots, here’s our guide to getting more Christmas presents for your budget this year.
