Last minute Christmas life hacks

Neatly wrapped presents

Here are our top tips for coping with the festive season…

Avoid the shops

There are lots of reasons to avoid the shops this year, so make things easy for yourself by shopping online. Many online retailers will also wrap and post your gift directly to the recipient too! Remember to visit the Deafblind UK Christmas shop for 15% off gift experiences! If online shopping is not for you, many shops now have ‘quiet hours’ where there is lower lighting, less noise and fewer people.

All in one

Many supermarkets, including M&S and Waitrose give you the option to buy all your Christmas dinner items in one package, which could be easier than trying to find each item individually, either online or in the shop.

Get wrapped up

If you struggle with fiddly bits of cellotape and awkward wrapping paper, then save yourself the hassle and use gift bags or boxes instead!

High contrast

If you struggle to identify what’s what at the dinner table then invest in some coloured glassware and crockery to create some contrast.

We hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
