The question on (nearly) everyone’s lips is - how will you spend yours?

A luxury winter coat from a boutique whose prices are normally beyond reach? A new sofa or carpet, or a spring wardrobe for the kids, or perhaps a subscription for a weekly sourdough loaf from your hip neighbourhood bakery?

The giveaway in the form of a pre-paid card to each household in Northern Ireland for spending in local shops in the new year was the glad tidings we’d all been waiting for.
