I'm a savvy shopper & buy my Christmas presents from charity shops – I've got some absolute bargains for just 50p | The Sun

WHEN it comes to Christmas, we're all guilty of splashing out on lavish gifts for our loved ones.

But with the cost-of-living crisis causing bills to soar, it's likely that spending habits this festive period will be different.

Luckily, one woman named Francesca, who posts under the acronym @francescacharityshop, took to TikTok to prove you haven't got to spend a small fortune to get some incredible gifts.

In the video, she begins: "If my brother and sister-in-law are watching, stop right now, because these are Christmas gifts I've got for my niece.

"I've spent £2.50 – they're all brand new, in packaging and still sealed."

She then goes on to explain that the first thing she got her was a 'make your own cushion' set which cost her just 50p.

"I was actually thinking about keeping it for myself but I'm sure my nine-year-old niece would benefit from it more than me – and that was £1.50."
