Stress-free Christmas tip 2: Do a bit at a time

Everyone dreads hitting the shops on Christmas Eve because they still have presents to get or a turkey to buy.

Brussels sprouts: are they really worth that Christmas Eve panic? 

Start to stock up early and buy a few things at a time. If budgets are squeezed this Christmas, consider gifts of your time rather than items that cost money.

Give your spouse the gift of vouchers for a night off their half of the housework. Or the promise to paint the spare room that you never seem to get around to doing.
