Make it easy
Make it easy on yourself…find a place that will do all your shopping for you. Ok, maybe this is a little far out, but we aren’t too far. There are many ways to make gifting easier on yourself and stress less this holiday! There are many services and ways that you can make your holiday shopping easier with these ideas and tools.
Gift Wrapping Services
During the rush of holiday shopping, there is one service that has incredibly high value but is also incredibly underused: gift wrapping! A well-wrapped gift can add an additional “wow” factor on top of a thoughtful gift. It can take a lot of time to get a gift well-styled and wrapped perfectly symmetrical, so for that reason, we highly recommend you pay an extra few dollars for gift wrapping services.
Get All Your Gifts from One Place
Time can be the biggest constraint when executing your ideal holiday vision. Make it easy on yourself and find outlets that you can do all your shopping early, so you won’t need to scramble and compete with other last-minute holiday shoppers for the last of that perfect item.
Speaking of the perfect item, we know how much of a headache it can be to think of getting the right gift. We recommend shopping from places that have dedicated special occasion shopping sections because someone else has already thought for you!
Make a plan
We’ve addressed it plenty of times already, but TIME IS IMPORTANT! The holidays will take away more time than you have to give. This is why making a plan is so important and avoiding the horrors of last-minute shopping. The earlier the better when it comes to planning, so you have enough time to think about the special people in your life and arrange shopping plans. Here are some tips to make it easier for yourself:
1. Start With A List of People to Shop For
This is the most important step in the holiday shopping process! You do not want to be in the position to forget about someone special or finding yourself purchasing too many presents. Once you figure out all the people you need to shop for, you can start to create the budget and look around for where to shop.
2. Don’t Double Ship
If you are looking to save on holiday gifts, one good option is to ship straight to the recipient instead of having items shipped to you. For the best outcome, you would want to shop from an outlet that has gift wrapping options, not only will this save you money, but free up some time for you to focus on other holiday planning. Consider choosing from our selection, and we’ll ship for you!
3. Check The List Twice
It’s not unusual to miss things on your initial holiday planning. Before you start making the purchases, double-check the list of people you want to buy for and ensure no one is left out. We would recommend budgeting something extra just for last-minute or emergency gifts.
Don’t feel bad about missing anyone on your initial list, we know that the holidays can be a stressful time.
