Don’t forget to add these items to your Christmas shopping list

I can’t tell you the number of times that I’ve written my big Christmas shopping list and left off something essential that has meant an extra trip out back to the shops when they are absolutely crazy and heaving with last minute Christmas shoppers!

This is a handy reminder of those often forgotten things that are essential to your Christmas wellbeing.

1 – Stuffing,

2 – Cranberry sauce, home made is always nicer but if you don’t have time ensure you add to the list.

3 – Sellotape, because it always goes missing or runs out.

4 – Batteries, if you have younger children fit the batteries before wrapping will make your life so much easier on the day and get a range of sizes.

5 – Bin bags – There is always so much rubbish over the Christmas period, get the wrapping paper in, knot and get it out the house after all you are going to need as much space as possible.

6 – Ready made custard, someone always wants custard.

7 – Double cream, always good to have options, if it is. not custard they will want cream.

8 – Gravy granules – always lovely to make your own but granules are just so much easier when you go through a lot with Christmas dinner.

9 – Christmas crackers – if you leave them to the last minute the rubbish ones will be left.

10 – Mayonnaise – for all those leftover turkey sandwiches.

If you are an online shopper like me don’t forget to book your Christmas and New Year slots these get booked up super quickly, dates for most supermarkets Christmas week slots are released early November.
