Cash Chats UK Money & Personal Finance podcast

Dec 4, 2019

A bad present, either because it's not been thought through or it's just a lazy purchase, is one of the worst wastes of money as there's every chance it'll end up in the bin or just at the back of a cupboard unused.

So in this episode, Andy shares why he hates Secret Santa and how you can make sure whatever gifts you buy actually to live up to the old adage that it's the thought that counts. He'll also look at whether regifting is ok.
