The DofE Christmas Gift Guide

19th Nov 2018 in General

Looking for Christmas present ideas and don’t know where to begin? Whether you’re a parent trying to please a teen, a teacher thinking of a Secret Santa gift or you just need ideas for your family or friends, we can help. 

Read our guide on how you can buy and save up to 20% on our hand-picked offers.

What’s even better? Every time you use one of our discounts, our partners give a donation to the DofE charity.

Follow these steps…

We suggest you follow these three simple steps when buying Christmas presents. It’ll make the process a lot smoother and you’ll get a present the person wants. Step three is particularly important, as we’ve split our offers based on personalities and interests e.g. the thrill seeker, the petrol head.

  1. Write down a list of people to you need to buy for
  2. Set a budget for each person
  3. Think about who you’re buying for
