Welcome to the December
Save Time Online Newsletter!

With the end of exams for students, Christmas and Hanukah  preparations, the end of year and the start of summer holidays, December is often an extremely busy time of year. The perfect time to save time anyway you can, including by doing errands online whenever possible.

Most importantly, make sure you care for yourself this month - take some breaks (a holiday would be a great plan!), listen to music (carols or otherwise!), share some old memories, enjoy your hobby, read a book or do some sport.

We have just introduced a survey about shopping and the environment, and we'd love your input. Click Here to take part in the survey and share your opinions. We will share the results in upcoming newsletters and will prepare an article on how environmental protection affects our shopping habits.

Have a wonderful holiday season, stay healthy and share a lot of laughter with people you care about.

The Value of personalised gifts

When we give a gift, we want to make the other person feel happy and valued. Often we want to give something that will be a lasting symbol of our care for that person. Yet with the amount of stuff our friends and family have, it isn’t easy to find a gift that they’ll enjoy and that is still different or even unique.

One way to give a gift of difference is to choose a personalised gift. That is, having the person’s name or image somehow incorporated onto the gift.

Wrapping gifts

If you have ever seen young children with a gift, you will know that it is not only the gift that receives attention and is appreciated – the wrapping and presentation can also be part of the experience.

We share some fun ideas to make your gifts festive and individual this Christmas.

Maximising rainwater

Australia is one of the driest places on Earth and yet we are one of the highest per capita users of water.
