The celebration of Christmas is increasingly a combination of Catholic Christmas traditions and marketing strategies, from small businesses to large multinationals and giant retail stores. The responsibility of each one of us is to balance the scales so that the joy of Christmas is not drowned out by wild capitalism!
We can start with a more conscious choice of each one of those gifts. So, we suggest the 14 best Christmas gifts for friends up to €5, but unlike others, these are interesting, practical, and cute!
For example, at dinner parties with friends, how often do we buy a fluffy, sometimes very expensive, trinket and, when opening the gifts, you can see their eyes saying: “Where the hell am I going to put this!? ” or “Pretty, but good for nothing but filling up space.” I probably have already done that look (although I hope no one ever noticed it) and I’ve seen that look on the faces of people around me so many times that it’s become commonplace. But it shouldn’t be so!
Let’s go then! Practical and useful ideas, the 14 best Christmas gifts for friends up to €5! 🙂
Christmas Spirit: ON!
(background music when reading these tips!)
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air.
This year I bought almost everything at ShowroomPrive.pt, taking advantage of the fact that the store has everything, at all prices (I don’t think I’ve ever used such a low budget!) and for all tastes! Even if you leave shopping for the last minute, ShowroomPrive.pt always has many options with delivery in just 72 hours, do you want better than this?

About Black Friday
Black Friday marks the starting point of Christmas shopping until the list is complete. It may or may not compensate, it depends on what you are looking for! But, after all, what is Black Friday? This is the day that opens the door to the Christmas shopping season, with many offers and promotions in many stores, online and offline. It takes place the day after Thanksgiving in the United States, that is, the day after the fourth Thursday of November. Still, many companies extend these offers and promotions, depending on the strategy of each store.
All this to say that in the coming days you can (supposedly!) access more competitive prices. If so, take advantage of it!

The Motive book
Business has been slow for Hounslow’s small-time dope-dealer, Jay Qasim. A student house party means quick easy cash but it also means breaking his own rules. But desperate times lead him there – and Jay finds himself in the middle of a crime scene.
Idris Zaidi, a Police Constable, and Jay’s best friend, is having a quiet night when he gets a call-out following a noise complaint at a house party. Fed up with the lack of excitement in his job, he visits the scene and quickly realizes that people are in danger after a stabbing.
