Are you fed up of wrapping up your Christmas presents yet? I know I am… but, did you know that in many shopping centres up and down the country – you can take your gifts to the customer service desk and let them do all the hard work for you!

My local shopping centre does it for a donation to charity – I simply leave the items there for a short while and when I return they’ve all been nicely wrapped with a tag on so I can write who they are for! Simple!


I just wish I’d remembered this little nugget of information earlier on – I could have saved myself loads of time!

Of course, the idea is that you take things that you’ve bought in their shopping centre to be wrapped – however, if you’re making a donation to charity I’m sure they’d still be happy to wrap things bought elsewhere. Last year I took 18 things to be wrapped – I dropped them off in the morning, went to work, and then collected them on my way home making my charitable donation. They made a really good job of them too!

About childofthe80s

I’m a Mum, first and foremost. Henry is now 8 years old. I can’t believe where the time has gone… I’ve learnt a lot along the way, and I hope some of the experiences I choose to write about may be useful to you. I write about things that are going on in my life – a lifestyle blog, if you like. I like money saving and helping people to save money here and there, I also do a lot of honest reviews, so I shall be posting some of those on here too. I love photography – Henry is my most favourite subject – but I do love taking pictures of anything really. Children’s portraits are what I think I’m best at. I enter a lot of competitions – I admit it! It’s a great hobby to have and has brought many an experience our way which we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to do. A great example to give you was when I won a spa holiday to Kuala Lumpur – we flew business class and lived a life of luxury for 10 whole days. It was bliss and something we would have NEVER have been able to have treated ourselves to otherwise… and all because I sent my name and address on a postcard to the Times newspaper. I feel that I am fairly successful at comping because I put a lot of effort in – AND I have a positive attitude. I run a little business selling costume jewellery, and I also work 4 days a week in a digital library, so – what with all that – I’m a pretty busy person! I wouldn’t change any of it, mind… I hope you’ll find my posts interesting enough to stick around, follow me, share some of my pages etc. Anna x
