We’re winding down to the final shopping days before Christmas, so if you haven’t started your holiday shopping yet, now is not the time to run to the Willow Grove Mall and buy things on impulse. If you shop smart in these final days, you’ll be able to save money and still get gifts for everyone on your list.
- Make a List, Check It Twice: Start out by writing down the names of everyone you need to get gifts for, whether big or small. Along with a name, write down how much you’d like to spend on the person, and one to two ideas of what you’d like to get them.
- Do You See What I See: Before you head to the mall, do some research online. If you plan on getting someone an e-reader, read up on the various products on the market and find one that fits into your budget. Free user reviews are available on sites like Amazon.com, and Epinions.com contains a multitude of product reviews.
- All Is Calm: To avoid crowds and chaos, shop during a store’s holiday extended hours, such as early in the morning or late in the evening. Weekends are always going to be more crowded, so if you can, shop during the week. If you really want to enjoy some peace and quiet, do your holiday shopping online from the comfort of your home. Check sites like Retailmenot.com for promo codes since many retailers are offering free shipping.
- All I Want for Christmas: Nothing is better than a homemade gift. Put on your creative cap and make cookies, homemade bath scrubs, personalized coffee mugs – the possibilities are endless! Sites like Pinterest.com offer a variety of homemade gift ideas that are both inexpensive and meaningful.
