Time to hit the shops and get the presents ready!

Here are our top tips to help avoid so much rushing around and expense.

  1. Start as early as you can. This way you can not only spread the cost but also the stress levels, get what you can, done early then you can enjoy all the festivities that December brings. Make a list of everything you need to purchase and tick off as and when you get them.
  2. Buy online and use a click and collect service as much as possible. This way you can do everything at a time that suits you. Do check delivery times though, you don’t want it to arrive late.
  3. Use cashback websites like topcashback.com or get a cashback credit card, you may as well earn while you spend.
  4. Get a grocery slot online early, to order the big bulky things and save yourself the battle of having to do a big trolley shop days before Christmas. Top yourself up with small quick supermarkets shops, only using a basket to get the last minute, short expiry date products. Look out for Supermarket Saving schemes as well, this can help spread the cost over the year.
  5. Check out the last posting dates for Christmas cards and parcels at royalmail.com/greetings . The last recommended date for posting first class is 21st December 2015. Also Royal Mail offer a free letter from Santa service, check out the details here www.royalmail.com/letters-to-santa
  6. Finally keep the receipts, many shops do gift receipts now and many extend returns policies to the New Year in case your recipient isn’t satisfied.
  7. Failing all else, make your own gift, Pinterest.com has thousands of ideas, for cheap and more meaningful alternatives.

Have a very happy and stress free run up to Christmas.

Here are a few practical ideas on how parents and families can help children:

Give them these 6 Tips:

1.  Prepare all school things the night before so you don’t have to worry about organising themselves in the morning

2. Get a good night’s sleep – you could take a warm bath, have a milky drink before bed

3. Ensure that you have a good breakfast

4. Read the question before you attempt your answer

5. Attempt to answer all of the questions

6. In the morning, leave all of your worries behind you and ‘do your best!’

May Day 2015 http://www.easy2name.com/blog/may-day-2015/ http://www.easy2name.com/blog/may-day-2015/#comments Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:49:57 +0000 http://www.easy2name.com/blog/?p=9547 The May Day is an ancient tradition and typically a bank holiday. Celebrations in England usually include May pole dancing and crowning a May Day Queen.

Our local village May Fair is this weekend and all of us at Easy2name are looking forward to it, in particular to the Bake Off competition. We have all had great successes in the past and we hope to do as well this year.  This year our very own panto Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood will be giving out the awards.

Another new tradition we have here is the ‘Build a Beast’ competition – whereby villagers build giant beast creations and display them in their hedges, gardens or prominent places in the village. It really creates a buzz locally and something interesting to look and chuckle at when passing through.

Here are a few of the entries:

MEET THE TEAM MONDAY http://www.easy2name.com/blog/meet-the-team-monday/ http://www.easy2name.com/blog/meet-the-team-monday/#comments Mon, 27 Apr 2015 14:52:12 +0000 http://www.easy2name.com/blog/?p=9534 HollyMeet Holly, Fundraising Co-ordinator for Easy2name.



How long have you worked at Easy2name?

14 years! I started by cutting up strips of labels, back then we didn’t have the machines to do it for us.

What is your favourite Easy2name product and why?

I love the ballet bags. Asides from my part-time role as Fundraising Co-ordinator for Easy2name, I teach ballet across Berkshire and Wiltshire, so I loved it when our gorgeous bags were introduced to the range.

Who or what inspires you?

In the ballet world it would have to be Darcey Bussell. I have been lucky enough to meet her and even danced with her in the Olympics Closing Ceremony.

What 3 things would you take to a desert Island?

A private jet filled with all of my friends and family (is that cheating!?)

A selection of good books

A masseuse!


Ballet is still my main hobby,   even though it is now my job too. I know I am very lucky to have found a job that I love.

Favourite place to go to?

I love the sunshine so anywhere nice and hot. I am at my happiest on a sun-lounger with a good book and a mojito.

Favourite song

Beyonce – The entire ‘I Am Sasha Fierce’ album.

Favourite film

It’s too hard to choose, some of my favourites are:



Love Actually

(any chick flick)

Favourite Book

Although very dark, ‘Room’ by Emma Donoghue is a fantastic read.

Favourite recipe

I’m a very keen amateur baker and I love all of Mary Berry’s recipes. Whenever I bake her Sticky Toffee pudding it disappears very quickly.
