An Interview With Cherished Placentas We caught up with Nikki from Cherished Placentas over Christmas to find out more about why placentas are so good for you…

Tell us about you and how you found you way to Cherished Placentas I first heard about placenta encapsulation back in 2013, when I was pregnant with my first son. It wasn’t until I fell pregnant with my 2nd son in 2014 that I just knew I had to have mine encapsulated. All of the benefits sounded amazing, I felt drawn into wanting to give it a try after suffering with low mood, low milk supply, lack of energy & postnatal depression. There’s so much positive, but also negative media and opinions around placenta consumption – what are your thoughts to this? And what would you tell a lady (or man) who was sceptical? Most of us are sceptical about new things. Placentophagy; (Eating your own placenta afterbirth) has been practised all over the world for years. It’s only recently where we are seeing more and more women wanting to give it a go within the UK, all from mother’s experiences and feedback. The world is evolving at such a quicker rate, especially with our health & diet. I would say to really think about the placenta, should it really just be tossed away as waste? Why should this amazing organ just be put into the bin? Recent evidence from Jena University in Germany has created a full report of the composition of the placenta. It claims that placentas are packed with the mother’s hormones, amino acids, nutrients & stem cells. All of these components are crucial for recovery after birth.

How does it work? A Mummy books you, then goes into labour – when and where do you then start your work? Expectant mummies have a million and one things to think of, so I make it as easy as possible for them. Once a mummy books in, she’ll receive her chiller pack which contains everything she’ll need to keep her placenta stored correctly and safely. I then ask her birthing partner to contact me when she goes into labour, and when she’s had her baby so I can come and collect the placenta. Is it legal? Of course. Your placenta is legally your property. You are simply booking in with Cherished Placentas to provide you with a service. I am a registered and certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, I have a purpose built lab, I am registered and inspected by the Environmental health, so you can be sure your placenta is in safe hands. Finally, can you list 5 key reasons to why pregnant ladies should consider placenta encapsulation From all of the feedback and mine included; Mummies are feeling on top of the world from just giving birth. They’re not experiencing the dreaded baby blues, They are feeling very energetic, with loads of energy. They’re seeing an increase with their milk production. Their bodies have healed at a much quicker rate than their last birth, the list goes on...All from your amazing placenta.

Tips for Tummy Time Success with Rowan House

Awake and active tummy time can be introduced from birth and should be encouraged daily. TUMMY TIME PROMOTES: • Muscle activity needed for rolling, sitting and crawling. •

Natural development of the skull. During tummy time the head is away from external pressure and is free to move. Excessive time on the back can lead to a head turn preference and head flattening. An alternative posture to that adopted in most baby equipment e.g. car seats and floor seats. This keeps your baby’s skeletal system flexible and balanced.

Tips for Tummy Time Success: 1. Start from birth with skin to skin snuggles

on your chest. After a couple of weeks, as your baby starts to unravel and lift their head, tummy time should become more deliberate.

2. Start by keep your baby close to you,

placing them on your chest, in your arms (such as the Tiger in the tree hold – see main picture) or across you lap. This will help your baby feels safe and secure.

3. Try for little and often throughout the day – one possible way of remembering is to try tummy time activities each nappy change.

4. Build tummy time into your daily routine.

Activities such as carrying, winding, massage and early play activities, can all be done with your baby on their tummy.

5. Make it fun for your baby by engaging and interacting with them during tummy time.

Please remember you should always place your baby on their back to sleep and not on their front or side (unless your doctor has advised you of a medical reason to do so).

FEBRILE CONVULSIONS With Fleximed Training

Around 1 in 20 children will experience a febrile convulsion (seizure) at some point. They are relatively common and occur mainly in children between the ages of 6 months – 5 years. Watching your child during a seizure is distressing for any parent, especially if it is the first time. Knowing what to expect and what to do during one can really help to keep you calm and less anxious. WHAT ARE THEY? Although the exact cause of febrile convulsions is unknown, they are linked to fevers. A fever is a high temperature of 38 degrees and above. Despite how distressing they look, febrile convulsions are not harmful or cause lasting damage. SIGNS OF A FEBRILE CONVULSION: Typically lasting less than five minutes. Your child will usually: •

Become stiff and their arms and legs may begin to twitch or jerk

Lose consciousness and may wet themselves 

May go red or blue in the face

Their eyes may roll back

Once the convulsion ends, your child will regain consciousness but may be sleepy or irritable for a while. WHAT TO DO DURING A FEBRILE CONVULSION: • Place your child on their side in the recovery position •

Do not try to restrain your child

Do not put anything in their mouth

Try to keep a note of how long the seizure lasts

If your child has had febrile seizures before and the seizure lasts for less than five minutes, phone your GP or NHS 111 for advice.

CALL 999 IF: • The seizure lasts longer than five minutes and shows no signs of stopping •

You suspect the seizure is being caused by another serious illness – for example, meningitis

Your child is having breathing difficulties

So…What is Hypnobirthing?

‘Hypnobirthing’…do images of swinging pendulums and questionable stage shows leap into your head? Maybe you’d thought of it as ‘hippy’ stuff where you’ll find yourself giving birth in a cornfield under a new moon? Hypnobirthing is neither of these things -honestly. It is a thorough and profound antenatal preparation that is beneficial for all parents, wanting any kind of birth, in any kind of setting. Mothers naturally have the perfect system in place to give birth comfortably and calmly. Unfortunately, nowadays there is so much negativity surrounding labour that most of us have some degree of fear attached to giving birth. This fear causes the release of adrenalin, which hinders the progress of labour and causes pain. Hypnobirthing helps release these fears and equips you with the tools needed to give birth as we are designed to do.

YOU’LL LEARN: • The physiology of birth •

How to ask questions to allow you to make informed decisions about your baby’s birth

Breathing, relaxation and visualisation techniques

The importance of positive language

How to reduce stress, anxiety and, as a result, pain

The fundamental role of your birth partner and how they can support you effectively; and many other useful tools to prepare you for your baby’s arrival.

Hypnobirthing ensures parents feel confident, calm, informed and prepared. It doesn’t promise a pain free, perfect birth, but if you practice and really engage with your course you will be able to manage labour calmly and with confidence to ensure the best possible experience for you and your baby.

Preparing Parents-To-Be by Liz at One To Cherish Thoughts such as how do I hold my baby? How do I change a nappy? Or how do I get them in and out of a car seat? Are such common fears new parents and parents-to-be worry about. As a parent we are supposed to instinctively know the answers to the above questions, but it’s never that simple. Parenting is not simple. Preparing is key. And it’s really not that hard to become informed and confident before your big arrival. Read books, speak with your midwife, ask for support from friends and relatives. Antenatal classes are also really important to quash nerves, anxiety and confusion about bringing a special little person into the world. There are so many types of classes you can access, from local hospital classes to private hypnobirthing classes, traditional classes, pregnancy yoga and aqua natal classes… there are a lot of options in our fine county. Throughout my many years of working as a nanny, children’s auxiliary nurse, foster carer, social worker and parent coach/trainer, I have recongnised how important it is to become not only physically ready, house and equipment ready – but also emotionally ready. It lays down a foundation of feeling safe and secure in ourselves, and opens up the conversation of mental maternal (and paternal) health.

Babies naturally bring about change. Whether it’s your first or your fourth, a new baby will alter the dynamics of your household. It’s overwhelming and hard. But seeking emotional support is so important. Anything from letting go of household chores and allowing family and friends to pick up some jobs to enable you unforgettable bonding time with your new bubs, to seeking professional help from your antenatal class coordinator or Doctor. As professionals we have access to many key supporters who we can signpost you to, so please do get in touch. If you are looking for a free taster workshop on how to look after a newborn then you can find me at the 14th April Parent and Baby Show at UEA Sportspark. Here I will be showing you top tips on how to take care of your newborn in the first few days, before you’re in a routine and a confident parent. With hugs and wishes we look forward to hearing about your journey with your new baby xx

Exercise in pregnancy is dangerous and unsafe? WRONG. By Debbie from Babyfit Exercise during pregnancy can be highly beneficial and is now recommended by the UK Chief Medical officers, who advise that pregnancy is the ideal time to adopt a healthy lifestyle. If you are completely new to exercise the advice is to start gradual, and for those who are already active you should adjust existing workouts accordingly to maintain fitness levels. There are so many ways in which you can exercise whilst pregnant, but my main advice is to ENJOY what you choose to do. Swap and change your routine so it doesn’t become dull and boring.

TRY BEFORE YOU BUY – OUR TOP TIP FOR CHOOSING A SLING By Sleepy Nico When it comes to babywearing, the most important thing to remember is that one size does not fit all. As the owner of a baby carrier brand you might expect me to be pushing my own above all else but that has never been the ethos of Sleepy Nico. In fact, I am a firm believer in try before you buy. There is no place better to do this than at a sling library. Like a book library, a sling library allows you to borrow slings and baby carriers so you can try them and find out which might suit you best. Trust me, there are a lot of different makes and models out there and it can be a bit overwhelming if you are a new to using a sling. At a sling library, you can speak to experienced and enthusiastic people. These are usually parents who are passionate about carrying their children and helping others – and you can try on a selection of slings from a wide variety of manufacturers. Slings available will include stretchy wraps, soft structured carriers, ring slings, Asian-style carriers and woven wraps. With most baby carrier and sling retailers operating online, and with the fabric feel and construction such an important element in considering a purchase, opportunities to touch and try out different fabric blends in one space is really helpful. The opportunity to try a variety of styles of carrier, with support from experienced or professional consultants, allows the chance to explore and to practice with guidance and support. There is also the added benefit of being in the company of other people with new babies, from your local area. It’s a great place to make friends.

Article by Sleepy Nico Angeline runs Sleepy Nico which specialises in slings. Find her at www.sleepynico.com  

If you are new to the whole idea though, don’t worry about feeling left out. At a sling library, you will be gently introduced to the many benefits of carrying your baby. These include bonding with your little one, helping calm them and getting them to sleep, giving you the opportunity to have your hands free and saving money (they cost a lot less than a pram). For a small fee, you can take a sling home for a number of weeks to make sure it works for you and your family. But remember to arrive early - library sessions are often quite busy with lots of people attending – and sometimes samples run out. Sling libraries are usually based in towns, set up by volunteers, creating spaces that offer the opportunity to explore a wide range of babywearing and social options. They usually meet fortnightly or monthly and the venues can range from someone’s living room, to a community centre or a local café.

How To Help A NICU Family By Vicki Cockerill One in eight babies will be admitted to the Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in the UK. This may be because they were born prematurely or because they are very poorly. This is something I know very well with my eldest son being admitted to NICU at just 12 hours old. It can be hard to find the right words, to know how to help or support someone who has a baby in NICU. One of the things that I get asked frequently as a NICU Mum is what someone can do to help a friend or family member who has had a baby admitted to NICU. There are so many ways in which you can help a NICU family. Here are my top 7 ways to make a difference to a family in need of love and support. 1. ACKNOWLEDGE THE BIRTH OF THE BABY It may seem insensitive to send a congratulations card, especially if a NICU Parent is coming home whilst their baby stays in the hospital. But one of the things that NICU parents crave the most is normality. We want what everyone has. There are now lots of NICU cards you can send, or NICU milestone cards, journals or even a personalised vest or suit for the baby to show that you are acknowledging the birth of their baby and offering support. 2. LEARN ABOUT THE BABY’S SITUATION Every NICU baby situation is different. They may be premature, have an illness or medical condition. One thing you can do to support a NICU family is learn what you can. Read up on their specific conditions and what the terminology means. For a NICU Parent to not have to explain things again and again will make the world of difference. You can also help parents by finding out what support is on offer to them, car parking, food vouchers, accommodation procedures and local support groups both on and offline.

3. OFFER TO BE A LIAISON Friends and family will naturally want to keep updated with news, but it can be very hard to keep up with multiple messages from lots of different people. One way to help a NICU family is to offer to be a liaison and keep everyone updated. This will save the worry of replying and having to bulk message everyone. 4. HELP AT HOME Hospital life can be very consuming and it is easy to forget that you have other responsibilities at home. Offer to help with taking older children to and from school, taking them for the weekend or just by making them tea. Help with washing, or by taking care of pets at home. Keep the cupboards full without being asked too, and have an online shop delivered when they come home. 5. KEEP THE FRIDGE STOCKED UP Hospital food is okay but soon will take its toll. Mothers especially won’t be too fussed about eating much and would rather be at their baby’s bedside. Help out by cooking some nutritious meals that can be eaten cold or heated up (many NICU wards will have a parent’s room with basic kitchen facilities) and for when they are needed make some batch cooked frozen meals in the freezer. 6 OFFER LIFTS Car parking at the hospital can become expensive, most will offer a discount If your baby is in NICU but you can then spend a lot on petrol. Offer some lifts to ease the financial worry of commuting each day and also after a long stressful day in the ward the last thing a NICU parent may want to do is drive home. 7. HAVING A CHILD IN NICU IS ONE OF THE MOST TRAUMATIC THINGS FOR A PARENT. Always offer support, a shoulder to try on. They may not be ready for some time to really open up but keep trying. They may push you away - but always call, text and don’t give up. They will know you are there when they are ready. Don’t let them neglect their emotional health and watch for signs of post natal depression or post traumatic stress disorder in both parents.

Tips for a fabulous self-catering family holiday in the UK by Tom from Sheringham Cottages At Sheringham Cottages, we welcome hundreds of families each year so we have a lot of advice to share, and ideas at the tip of our fingernails to offer families who are off on their holidays this year. GENERAL TIPS Check with the business you have booked with whether they supply high chairs/cots/stair gates – these take up valuable space in your car, so make sure you book somewhere who have these to hand as this instantly makes life much easier. However, we’d recommend you to bring your own sheets – just so you know your little person is sleeping on fresh sheets with no stains.

Bring a cheap shower curtain to place under the high chair at meal times (or a special bib, but these can be more expensive). Then you can easily scoop up any foods which your baby has thrown around. Perfect for babies doing baby-led weaning. Monitors. There’s nothing worse than settling down once the children are asleep and realising you forgot the monitor. Prepare some meals before you leave home. This is a great way to save time on an evening, save washing up and ensures you get a good meal even if you’re pretty tired from a busy day exploring.

Remember a towel for the beach/pool. This is so easy to forget if you know linen is provided. If you’re not traveling at a busy time of year, it’s worth checking to see if you can arrive any earlier in the day so you can make the most of the first day of your holiday. Research local places to go/restaurants and shops as you never know if there are any local events or offers on whilst you are staying in the area. Often the business who you have booked with will have a good knowledge of what’s going on in the area too.

WINTER This is a great time of year to go if you want a more affordable break. And just because the weather isn’t quite as good, it doesn’t mean it’s all doom and gloom. Make use of local swimming pools – research local centres and spend a few hours splashing around. Who cares if it’s blowing a gale outside.

Does the business who you’ve booked with offer any local discounts with tourist spots/pubs etc? It’s well worth asking just in case.

Hot chocolates and marshmallows are a wonderful, home-away-from-home treat. If it’s wet and cold then bring some favourite comfort foods, create a den in your lounge and enjoy some hygge time. (If you’ve never heard of the Scandinavian term ‘hygge’ then look it up, it’s a lovely way of connecting with your family.)

Remember the medicine. You never know when your children are going to suddenly go down with a bug/start teething….or heaven forbid, anything worse. Bring the thermometer, pain killers and anything you know may help them.

Wellies. No winter holiday is complete without a run around in the woods in your wellies. There are so many fun forest ideas on Pinterest you can find to entertain the little ones whilst you blow away the cobwebs.

SUMMER Your holiday may have cost more, but with better weather comes lots more opportunities to explore the local area. Find local walks, beaches, and free events. Pack a picnic and enjoy the local countryside or parks. Remember any toys and games, bikes and bucket and spades. The simplest, traditional family games are often the ones you remember the most.

At Sheringham Cottages we cater for families and know exactly what it takes to make our guests feel at ease and valued. We have 6 brilliant self-catering houses in the heart of Sheringham – all a 5 minute walk from the town centre, steam railway, golf course, blue flag & lifeguarded beach and stunning walks and woodland fun. We also provide ours guests with unlimited, free access to a local leisure centre which offers a pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and gym – a brilliant addition when the weather isn’t in your favour.

Why Swim: Pregnancy, Baby and Children by Swimtots

Swimming has long been known to bring many health benefits but now research has shown that gently exercising whilst pregnant and attending baby swimming lessons turns out to be more than just fun. At Swimtots, we understand and have developed our programmes to take full effect of the benefits that being in water can bring. Our aqua natal sessions are designed to increase blood flow and oxygen to both mother and baby, increase endurance which helps with the birth, helps with pregnancy related aches, provides a quicker post-natal recovery and helps with the social aspect of being pregnant. It also provides regular exercise patterns which can be carried on after the birth, it introduces children to an active lifestyle at a very young age.

If you make a point of taking your baby to a pool every week, as they grow older, they see it as part of their lives. Baby swimmers have better balance and are also better at grasping objects and toys than non-swimmers. This difference persists even when children are five years old, when babies who have been taught to swim still outperform their peers, research from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) shows. Swimming exercises babies and young children in an amazing way. It improves co-ordination, encourages muscle development and even helps to establish sleeping patterns. This is why our baby and toddler classes include sensory development and use repetition and play to develop the brain and its connections.

Swimtots run classes around Norfolk, from pregnancy all the way through to children’s lessons. Website: www.swimtots.net Email: info@swimtots.net Phone: 07580 351 058 Find us on 

Home Education and Socialisation Lucy, from The Life Schoolers, wrote in issue two of our magazine, just before her move from Lincolnshire to Norfolk. Here she talks about her move and how socialisation plays a key role in home education. Hi, I’m Lucy and together with my husband Rex, 2 boys – Archie (5) and Rocco (3) we form The Life Schoolers. Over the last year we have fully immersed ourselves into the home education way of life. When I last wrote for the magazine we were living in Lincolnshire, but I’m pleased to announce that we are now fully fledged citizens of Norfolk. We have been here for a few weeks and already we have noticed how the home education community here is not only active, but thriving. People often say that their main worry about making the decision to home educate is whether or not their children would spend enough time with other children and be ‘socialised’. We are about to hit the first anniversary of saying “goodbye” to school and I can honestly say that this has been the LEAST of our worries. Our children are socialising daily. Whether it is in structured groups, informal play dates, walks on the beach with friends or merely spending time in town at the shops or with family. They have learnt to interact with people of all ages from all walks of life and have the confidence to make friends wherever we go. I could not have said this a year ago when our eldest was in school and was so full of anxiety.

It’s worth asking yourself how often you spend time with 30 people the same age as you day in day out, with your social time being decided on by other people. Many of my friends now would have left school by the time I started my senior school. Age is not important. It is when I stop and think about this and see my boys thriving when they spend time with older and younger children, that I really know we don’t need to worry about their socialisation.

TOP TIP: If you’re thinking about home schooling your children in Norfolk then I would highly recommend searching Facebook for a Home Education group in your area. There are so many around Norfolk in comparison to other areas of the country. Connect with other local parents and learn together.

No pressure learning with The Life Schoolers

A lot of our learning is very unstructured and we follow the children’s interests as much as we can. We learn through nature, through play and through the natural rhythms of every day life. Set activities are lovely and if they capture your child’s interest, they can also inspire creativity and learning. Try not to pressure yourself into thinking you have to do lots of these every day though. It’s worth thinking about what children can learn from every day experiences too. LEARNING AT THE BEACH: Recently we have been spending lots of time at the beach, learning about the weather, the tide, sea defences, watching the seal’s habits, making new friends, throwing stones and talking about distance, playing in the arcades discussing money, counting tickets and working out what prizes we can get. There is so much to see and do on the coast and plenty to learn along the way. Why not wrap up warm and head out to the coast to see where your day takes you.

LEARNING IN NATURE: The boys have enjoyed watching the birds recently and we got involved in the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch. It naturally led us on to a bit of a feather study. For this, we went on a FEATHER HUNT. All you’ll need to do is slip your wellies on and head out to look for feathers of all shapes and sizes. Talk about the similarities and differences and what the feather’s purpose might be (flying, warmth etc). We then did some FEATHER WATERCOLOUR PAINTING. The boys love painting with watercolours and it is good to set them up with a bit of inspiration - feathers, photos or nature books with feathers etc. Another challenge was to write a FEATHER ACROSTIC POEM. I did the writing for this, to take the pressure off my eldest in order to let his creativity flow more freely. and the boys were so proud of their poem. Why not give it a go.

Norfolk Mums' top 10 ways to stop Christmas from making such a huge dent in your finances As well as a joyous occasion, the festive season can be a stressful time for many parents especially when it comes to managing our finances and making sure that our little ones get all they wish for on the special big day. But gift-giving and food/beverage shopping does not have to fill us with terror, as with a little bit of preparation throughout the year, this will ensure it is easier on both our stress levels and our bank balances. Here are mine and the Norfolk Mums top tips to stop Christmas from making such a huge dent in your finances. 1. SHOP FOR GIFTS ALL YEAR ROUND By buying presents each month and picking them up in sales this means that “it’s not a mad dash and huge hit to the bank come November/ December time” says Sian Taylor. She adds that “I shop from about June/July, and usually have it all done, wrapped and away by mid-November, which means less stress and I can spread the funds out, which I’ve found definitely works out cheaper and easier to handle on a lower income.” My own mummy Lorraine Brooks says that she has “always shopped throughout the year to budget and save some pennies when things are on offer.” Then when it gets to October, she concentrates on those ‘hard-to-buy-for’ people and those closest to me (this must include me as her daughter.) 2. SHOP AROUND FOR THE BEST DEALS Another Norfolk Mum, Nia Catrin says “I buy most stuff online 6 or so months in advance so I don’t have to go out into the crowds and do shopping, and I’ve found most stuff is cheaper elsewhere online when you shop around and keep notes on everything.”

3. USE THE ‘4 PRESENT’ RULE I myself discovered this rule very recently and decided to stick to it for my 2 children for Christmas 2018. The rhyme goes something like this, and means that you just buy 4 key gifts for each child that they will appreciate due to fulfilling a certain aspect; “Something they want, something they need, something they wear, something they read.” 4. SET BUDGETS WITH FAMILY MEMBERS EARLY ON TO HELP PLANNING Norfolk Mum India Bonnet advises to “set a budget early and stick to it. Plus, get everything bought and wrapped ahead of time and avoid those unnecessary stocking fillers too.” 5. JOIN A SAVINGS PLAN OR BUY VOUCHERS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR You can save your money weekly or monthly throughout the year, either by joining an official savings plan with a savings company or bank, or by passing money to a family member you trust for safekeeping. Alternatively, you could “purchase gift vouchers throughout the year” suggests Norfolk Mum Leo Czerwinski. Of which Kate Fraser agrees too, saying “I buy an Amazon gift card every month from my supermarket and then add it to my account in December to buy gifts.” 6. MAKE HOMEMADE GIFTS Norfolk Mum Sofia Querido recommends being creative and giving your gifts the personal touch by handmaking them. In addition to this you could “save your wrapping paper and reuse it (tie it with string so Sellotape doesn’t rip it), reuse cards to make tags, or use cheap brown paper and stamp it - or get the kids to decorate it with drawings for an even more personal touch (all of these things save the environment as well as money)” says Roma Malone.

7. BUY ALTERNATIVE GIFT OPTIONS Roma also suggests “to keep unwanted or unused gifts from all year and regift them, or shop in charity shops for presents too”, and Norfolk Mum Victoria Trevor says that she “usually starts buying locally made gifts in August which means no extra postage costs and also supports local businesses.” A cheekier way to save cash would be to “make suggestions to the kids about what they might want for Christmas” says Carole Barmby, but I suppose this depends on how easily persuaded your children are when it comes to what Santa brings them. 8. SAVE ON FOOD AND BEVERAGE PURCHASES Gift purchases are not the only expense on the big day, however when it comes to buying food and drink some are quite fortunate when it comes to getting away with not cooking on Christmas Day as they visit relatives to enjoy the meal, so “don’t have to buy all the food (and only have to help clean up afterwards)” says Nia Catrin. Others suggest to “buy food when on sale and freeze it” (Roma Malone) or “put money on a supermarket savings card monthly to pay for Christmas food and drink” (Sadie Swanborough). 9. WORK A LITTLE EXTRA Norfolk Mum Alissa Williams says she “works over-time shifts the month before Christmas to cover the extra cost.” Another way is to take an additional temporary job, or work for a MLM company in the short term, to afford those little luxuries during the festive season. 10. PLAY SECRET SANTA My favourite of all Christmas money saving ideas is to play Secret Santa with family and/or friends, which involves picking a name out of the hat and only purchasing one gift with an agreed budget. This way everyone involves gets a gift they love, the buyer only has to spend a set amount of money, and it’s also lots of fun too.

In a nutshell, we all agree that with a little bit of pre-planning throughout the year this makes the Christmas holidays a little more bearable on our wallets. After all, Christmas is only one day of the year, therefore we should not let that one day put us in debt and make us struggle financially in the long-term. There are many alternative and cost saving options, meaning we can enjoy the festivities with our loved ones even more – because this is truly what Christmas is really for.
