Secret Santa, sisters & speeding tickets – this week's MSE Forum highlights

After a brief hiatus, the weekly MSE Forum highlights round-up is back. We hope you learn at least one new thing from it.

Money Moral Dilemma

Every week, the Money Tips email features a real-life Money Moral Dilemma (MMD for short). They're intended to encourage debate and, as such, they're usually among the most discussed threads each week.

Is it OK to get my friend something for Christmas that's on sale?

My friend and I always get each other a Christmas gift, which we spend a mutually agreed £30 on. This year I've found something worth £30 that would make a great gift for them, but it's on sale so I'd be spending less. Should I keep the money I'd save for myself or buy them something extra so I've spent the agreed amount?

You can find out what our MSE Forumites think and add your own two cents on the Money Moral Dilemma discussion thread. Heed the MSE Forum rules: keep it kind and keep it clean. Remember, there's a real person behind every Money Moral Dilemma.

Latest comping wins

One of our busiest sections, the Competitions Time board is where compers come to find and share competitions. There are always plenty of success stories. This week, AC55 won a Feather & Down sleep set including pillow spray.
