Gift Giving Season Does Not Mean Broke Season

Who wouldn’t love a little Marvel and Disney under the Christmas tree?



Christmas time means a lot of things to be merry about: family gatherings, reunions with friends, 13th month bonuses and vacations. But if there is one thing that we all kind of dread, it has to be the gift-purchasing—not because we don’t want to give gifts, but because it has us dipping into our savings just a little.


The thing is, gift giving doesn’t have to signal a broke month for anyone. If you take a look around, there are promos and discounts to take advantage of almost everywhere you look. All you need to do is look in the right places.
