Let someone else try before you buy

Worried you might be buying a turkey? Check out product reviews before you buy. Retailers like Amazon and ebay have a sophisticated consumer review systems. But, try independent sites such as CNET and Electric Pig where you can see reviews from professionals and consumers side-by-side.

Stuck for ideas

Not sure where to start? Well, see what other people are buying and talking about this Xmas on sites like Kaboodle – a social network for shoppers!

Bargain hunting

In these cash-strapped times, keep an ear to the ground for the latest deals via twitter. Follow discount voucher sites like @MyVoucherCodes and @savoo for £££££s off high street brands.
