It's Time To Stop Buying Unwanted Christmas Presents

So here's a list of some gifts listeners found useful!

Everywhere I look in shops, I see plastic and cardboard boxes of rubbish we don’t need, which will be under the tree at Christmas. This video really explains how I feel about the unnecessary waste at Christmas, without trying to sound like a Grinch!

 

Whether you agree or not, here are some presents that the listeners of the Early Breakfast found useful (not sure would I go for some of these but it's all subjective!)

 

  • Electric throw blankets for the couch.

 

  • You can never go wrong with a mattress topper (in the right size).

 

  • Waffle maker

 

  • Gift voucher (please don’t make this mistake: Paula from my aunty I got a 5 euro One For All gift card. I didn't even know they came in that small of denomination. Turns out they don't; it was originally a 20 euro and she spent it down to a fiver. To this day I wonder if she mixed it up with her own and could never bring myself to ask!)

 

  • Clothes

 

  • Wifi thermostat. No more getting out of bed to adjust the A/C.

 

  • I'm giving my son a book of adventure coupons. Twenty four adventurers like the zoo, open farm, visit the caves, play zone, beach etc., to use when he wishes. We’ve done a lot of them already but I'm excited to see how it goes.

 

  • Kindle, though it comes with additional costs if you go through books like I do. Only if you read though!

 

  • Yearly zoo pass!

 

  • Lottery millionaire raffle tickets

 

  • Ukulele, if the recipient has any interest in music whatsoever. They're really easy to play and inexpensive

 

  • Slow cooker
