Student Christmas gift ideas and local Christmas fairs

The end of term is growing ever nearer and your student loan might already be more than a little bit stretched. Whether you have loads of gifts to buy this year, or just a select few for family (along with that annual Secret Santa prezzie, of course,) at Rooms4u we have done the leg work, and have the perfect ideas for where to head for gifts this festive season.

Christmas craft fairs, full of homemade and vintage gifts, at reasonable prices, are the perfect solution for those short on cash this December. You’re sure to impress your parents when you turn up with gifts that are personal and unique after all! Head to Hope Street Christmas Fair on 1st December, the Winters Art Market at St Georges hall from 8th-9th December and the Waterfront gift fair at Mann island on December 13th for lots of creative ideas.

If you haven’t already been down to the Christmas markets on Church Street, then what are you waiting for! With Glühwein and a huge range of food on offer, as well as lots of lovely arts and crafts stalls, you can easily waste a Saturday strolling round the city centre feeling all Christmassy and get all your presents bought at the same time!

For any last minute gifts you might find yourself heading down to the high street stores and don’t forget that a lot of shops offer student discount in store as well as special offers for students online. Make sure you’re taking advantage of stores which offer reward systems based on your purchases such as Boots, Superdrug and Debenhams. If you’re lucky you might even get to treat yourself in the new year with the points!
