Win a $1000 EFTPOS card and avoid buying dodgy presents

DON'T be that person who leaves Christmas shopping to the last day, then buys socks, jocks or bad frocks for your loved ones.

It's always better to put a bit of thought into gift buying - and the Gatton Star can help you with some tips.

In fact, we can help you with the cash to buy the gifts too.

Our Cashed up for Christmas giveaway gives readers the chance to win one of six EFTPOS cards pre-loaded with $1000 spending money.

To enter, go to this page. Entries are now open and will close on Wednesday, December 16.

Regardless of what you're planning to spend, keep these things in mind when you're selecting a gift for someone you care about:

  • Adult colouring-in books and Star Wars merchandise might be all the rage, but consider whether the person you're buying for would actually appreciate that sort of gift.
  • Think about the recipient's personality, the things they like doing and consider what you could get them that would enhance their life (or at least amuse them).
  • It pays to do your research first - avoid buying the first thing you see.
  • Check out the returns policy of the store you're buying from - just in case your selection is way off the mark.

Keep reading the Gatton Star for handy Christmas shopping tips and don't miss your chance to win a $1000 EFTPOS card.
