Thieves like to steal property which can be sold on easily.
Be careful if you buy gifts such as bicycles, mobile phones, games consoles and other electronics - register them on the Immobilise website and store them somewhere secure until the big day.
Also watch out for people selling these kind of goods for what seems like a bargain price. They could be stolen. If you think you may have accidentally bought something that is stolen, the Citizens Advice website provides advice on what to do.
