We’d hate to give you a fright, but Christmas is creeping up much closer than you might think! Yes, summer might only just have finished, but it’s already hard to escape the baubles and tinsel in the shops and Jingle Bells will be playing before we all know it. 

Gift-giving is one of the loveliest parts about Christmas time, but it’s also an additional financial pressure for many. After a year where we’ve all had our budgets squeezed by the cost-of-living crisis, finding ways to have a cost-effective Christmas will be high on the wishlist this year. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways that you can be both frugal and festive when finding the perfect gift at Aquanauts. We’ve compiled a list of our top tips so that you can save money on Christmas gifts and keep the festive spirit at a high this year.

Start Your Shopping Early

One of the easiest ways to save money on Christmas gifts is by spreading your shopping and catching bargains throughout the year. If this isn’t possible or you’ve missed the chance this year, at least try and start your shopping as early as you can and get hunting now! Though you might not technically save any money on Christmas gifts by spreading your purchases over the coming months, your Christmas shopping will feel much less like a burden when it reaches December and most items have already been paid for. 

Buy Now, Pay Later

Alternatively, if you want to be organised and get all of your shopping done now but still keep the cost spread out, you could explore ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ options. These kinds of schemes typically involve paying for your gifts over a three-month period or 30 days after purchase, rather than paying for a full product outright. We’ve recently addedKlarna to our payment methods which allows you to spread the cost of your Christmas shopping. Simply select the option when you checkout online and lighten the load of your gifts this year.

If you plan to use Klarna, know that you are committing to a credit agreement and you should never make a purchase that you cannot afford. You can read the full terms and conditions of Klarna here.

Explore Black Friday Deals

If you’re happy to wait until the end of November to do most of your Christmas shopping, remember that Black Friday and Cyber Monday take place on the 24th and the 27th of November respectively. Aquanauts will be taking part with some epic reductions on a huge range of great scuba gear and diving gifts, so you can definitely bag yourself a bargain when you shop with us around these dates. Make sure that you pay attention to the site and sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of this page to be the first to know about our Black Friday deals!

Use Rewards Schemes

Regular customers will be well aware of our fantastic Aqua Points loyalty scheme. Every time you shop with us, you can collect points which can be converted into vouchers to spend with us. You might have accrued more points than you think, so remember to have a look at your Aqua Points account before you checkout and see if you have enough points to save a few pennies on your Christmas gifts with us this year.

If you’re new to shopping with Aquanauts, don’t worry. Make sure you set up an Aqua Points account and get collecting. Your Aqua Points will never expire so they will be ready and waiting for you to save money on Christmas gifts next year or for when you fancy treating yourself in the coming months without breaking the bank!
