Garrison Dales, UK wholesalers of industrial tools and consumables, discuss how people are saving money on Christmas spending by making their own presents to give away.
November 8, 2012 (Newswire) - Industrial tools and consumables wholesaler, Garrsion Dales, discuss ways in which people are saving money on presents this Christmas by making their own.
Every Christmas families spend around £682 on Christmas presents for each other and their friends. This huge amount of money means retailers experience sales boosts in all markets and industries.
The British economy has slowly recovered from the double-dip recession and now officially has economic growth once again, however this doesn't necessarily mean people can afford to buy expensive presents for all their friends and family.
For years people have made presents to give to each other at Christmas, as a great way to save money at a time when money will be stretched in every way. A Customer Service Representative for Garrison Dales commented, "We supply industrial tools and consumables, most of which wouldn't be useful to the public unless they do a lot of DIY. Many of our retailers have been telling us that they've seen more of the public buying tools because they're using them to make a set present for all of their family and friends, such as a bird nest box."
There are many different ways people can use power tools to make great presents for their friends and family. Discarded garage doors can be sanded down and nailed together with wood to create sturdy tables for someone's house. Power tools can be used to make something a relative or friend has asked for, making the present look incredibly thoughtful when finally presented.
Buying materials for building presents at home saves people money on their Christmas shopping, as these materials are cheaper than high street goods. Due to this fact many people are continuing to use their initiative and make presents that relatives and friends will find useful for Christmas, rather than buying an item someone might not appreciate as much.
