Want to avoid the craziness of last minute shopping? Two simple words: Buy Early. Waiting until the last minute results in less-than-thoughtful gifts (you just want to get the shopping done and over with) and over-spending (you grab whatever you can without looking at the price). And if you are shopping online, last minute means spending extra in express delivery charges to get your order ready to go under the tree by Christmas Eve. Plan ahead and start shopping early. Remember, the early bird gets the worm…or in this case, the good deals!
Online shopping has opened up a world of possibilities, allowing us to access even more locations and products than ever before, all being delivered straight to our wreath encrusted door. It is essential when shopping online; no matter if you are using PayPal, your credit card, or entering bank information that the website is secure. Secure sites make sure to encrypt their transaction details. If you see an “s” after “http” at the beginning of the website URL, you can rest assured you are shopping safely online. If you scroll down to the bottom of the website, you should see an icon denoting it is a safe website. Safe shopping is happy shopping!
The last thing you want is to buy a gift without clearly checking the shipping details before, and have it come after December 24th. Always look on the website to see if they are still offering guaranteed delivery in time for Christmas. Don’t hesitate to contact customer service about this. Here is a rule of thumb for you: Most websites stop guaranteeing delivery around the 10th to 17th of December. It is best to get your gift shopping in before that deadline.
We all have hard-to-shop-for people on our Christmas lists. Don’t bang your head against the table trying to think of the perfect gift. Sometimes all it takes is a gift card. Gift cards are easy to redeem and allow the recipient to get what they want. This saves you from buying something that will either collect dust in storage or be re-gifted later on.
Any Christmas gift guide will tell you to have a few extra gifts stowed somewhere. Sometimes people sprout up at the last minute. It is best to have a few gifts ready to give to an unexpected guest, a new coworker, or for someone’s plus-one at your Christmas party. These gifts can be ready in a minute.
