Christmas Sparkle On a Budget.

As the Festive season hoves into view, I'm sure that many of you are asking the same question – How can we do Christmas better and cheaper this year?
So here at Steptoes Dog we’ve thought long and hard and come up with our favourite way to make your celebrations go with a fizz, without blowing the budget.
So here are our top 5:
1.       Make some or all of your gifts. A home-made gift is a really lovely thing to receive, and there’s still plenty of time to make them. We’ve got some great home-made gift ideas so check them out! 
2.       Christmas decorations can cost quite a bit, so we’ve got together some of our favourite ideas for home-made Christmas decorations that will add lots of festive cheer to your home without breaking the bank.... 
3.       If you’re having family or friends over, ask them each to bring one thing, such as a bottle of wine, or some cheese.
4.       Make your own... Almost everything that we consume at Christmas is cheaper if you make it yourself. Prepare and cook your own food, as much as you can, avoid pre-prepared food, it is more expensive. Look online for good recipes and follow them, so you don’t make costly mistakes. Christmas cake and pudding will need doing soon. Home-made Christmas Crackers are much nicer than shop bought ones.
5.        Buy your Christmas gifts at Steptoes Dog, we’ve got a 45% discount running at the moment, so don’t miss out on this chance to make the Christmas cheer go much further!
       We wish you the Compliments of the Season!
