Last Minute Shopping Tips!
Did Christmas sneak up too fast this season? Christmas is only a few days away, and many of us have probably experienced the same Holiday procrastination. With schedules getting busier and time going faster, we may have been short on time to get presents for everyone we would’ve liked to, so here are a few easy and fun ideas for gifts this Holiday season.
1. If you are still determined to get to the mall check the stores’ Holiday hours. This will give you the opportunity to arrive at opening, or close to their closing hours. Most people shop in the middle of the day so beat the crowds with efficiency. Before you get to the mall, look online or in catalogs to find out exactly what you are looking for. This will save you time and stress in the stores and you can even call ahead to make sure they have what you are looking for!
2. If you are willing to spend a little extra on quick shipping, the Internet is still a great option for last minute Holiday shopping. If you want to save on the shipping, use the Internet to plan ahead for shopping inside stores.
3. Get creative with your gifts! Magazine or catalog subscriptions are a great idea to give something personal to each persons’ preference. Gift cards are easy, always useful and give each person the opportunity to spend some Holiday money on their own accord.
The greatest gift you can give to your loved ones is the gift of time, so focus on not letting the stress of the season take away from quality time with friends and family. Simplify your shopping and enjoy the days leading up to Christmas!
