Christmas 2011 may still appear a long way off, but if you want to spread the cost of next Christmas then why not opt for a regular savings account.
While there are many accounts on the market, many require you to save for at least one year.
However, there are accounts specifically aimed at those saving for Christmas, which mature in November next year giving you plenty of time to get your Christmas shopping done.
