We’re shaking things up a bit this year with our first ever Christmas Gift Guide Giveaway. For five whole weeks, six lucky winners will get to choose a gift from our budget-friendly gift guides to make a loved one’s day.
The giveaway starts on Tuesday 12th November with our Christmas Kick Off gift guide, with the finale on Monday 16th December. Every week we’ll have a whole new guide for you to choose from, with gifts for everyone from the kids to your special someone. Make the most of our Black Friday Early Access and Cyber Monday Steals gift guides to save a bundle on this year’s must-haves, along with toys to keep the kids entertained and luxury gifts for him and her.
Plus, every gift guide is sponsored by two of our charity partners. For every order made at the brands featured on the guide through Savoo, £0.05 will be donated to both of the sponsored charities on your behalf. So you can give a little something back this Christmas without spending anything extra yourself.
To enter, simply let us know what you’d like from this week’s gift guide in the comments on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the #SAVOOGIFTGUIDE hashtag. If you don’t win this week, don’t worry, try again next week for another chance!
This year the big day falls on a Friday.
As Christmas Day lands on a Friday this year, as well as getting Friday 25th December (Christmas Day) off, you'll also get Monday 28th December off for the Boxing Day bank holiday. That means most of us will get a nice long four-day weekend to celebrate Christmas and relax.

The best time to start Christmas shopping depends on what you’re buying. Black Friday and Cyber Monday (Friday 23rd and Monday 26th November) offer some fantastic discounts on laptops, smartphones, televisions and home devices. But you might be more likely to nab an awesome deal on white goods on a different date, for example.
The best way to truly figure out the best time to buy is to know what you’re buying and track the price over time. Use websites like PriceSpy and CamelCamelCamel to monitor the price of your items and pounce when they’re at the lowest. Remember to check here for any voucher codes or offers to cut the costs of your festive shopping even further.
Christmas returns vary from retailer to retailer, but many of the big stores allow extended returns until 31st January. You’ll need proof of purchase in the form of a receipt or gift receipt to get a full refund.

Advance rail tickets are made available 12 weeks before the travel date - that’ll be Friday 27th September if you’re travelling home on Friday 20th December. The golden rule of travelling by train is to buy train tickets as far in advance as possible - especially around Christmas time. With so many people scrambling to get back to their families for the festive season, ticket prices increase the longer you leave it. While it may require some forward planning, it’s certainly worth it to save money on train fares. Remember you can get 33% off rail fares with a Railcard too.
