Make Christmas 2023 great again…even with the rising cost of living

Make Christmas 2023 great again…even with the rising cost of living

With Christmas fast approaching, many of us are already getting underway with all the preparations that go into a successful festive period. However, with the current cost of living crisis and rising inflation, the thought of spending money might not be at the forefront of the mind. But what if this is exactly why you should buy something extra special this year... give someone a reason to smile and make it a Christmas to remember for all the right reasons instead!

Mamories Last Longer

Memories last longer than gifts

Today's society can be very materialistic, always wanting more and more 'stuff', but if we think about it, a lot of presents that we get at Christmas year in year out, inevitably end up collecting dust up on a shelf.

At Activity Superstore, we believe in gifts that create memories and not clutter, because when all is said and done, it's the memories that will stay with you forever and not the material things.

Below we hope you'll find some gifting inspiration that'll help you gift a memory to a friend or loved one, and hopefully give them a reason to smile and be happy, even with everything that is going on.
